HALLELUJAH: IT’S THE SECOND COMING…OR THE FIRST COMING…OR MAYBE THESE IDIOTS NEED TO VISIT LAKE ‘WOO-BEGONE’

This is getting really frakkin’ old…

I have, on more than one occasion, taken blasts at Scienmythology, but now? More Messianic delusions in the pop culture (thanks to elliejay at the NGB for this piece of poppycock):

Cruise 'is Christ' of Scientology

“TOM Cruise is the new “Christ” of Scientology, according to leaders of the cult-like religion.

The Mission: Impossible star has been told he has been “chosen” to spread the word of his faith throughout the world.

And leader David Miscavige believes that in future, Cruise, 44, will be worshipped like Jesus for his work to raise awareness of the religion.

A source close to the actor, who has risen to one of the church’s top levels, said: “Tom has been told he is Scientology’s Christ-like figure.

“Like Christ, he’s been criticised for his views. But future generations will realise he was right.”

Cruise joined the Church of Scientology in the ’80s. Leader L Ron Hubbard claimed humans bear traces of an ancient alien civilisation.”

Holy crap. At least the article said ‘cult-like’. Cult is definitely more like it.

I suppose it’s time for me to pull out my copy of Dianetics, and start hunting around for some obscure allegorical wording that, if (im) properly juxtaposed, could validate this pop-culture i-clown as the actual 2nd (1st? 3rd?) coming.

Next thing you know, we’ll have Cruise-tian churches, and old Tommy-boy will be ‘cruise-ified’.

Hopefully, the America public will wake up, and smell the coffee. He’s an actor (he’s actually not too bad at it), a fanatic, and an idiot.

And of course, all my polemics are simply ‘Xenu whispering evil into my ear’.

Will blunders never cease?

and he breeds...

(Just had to throw that bit in - and "no" to anyone who reads this comment, I am NOT advocating selective breeding programs or eugenics.)

There's still debate on the 'he breeds' thing, isn't there? Has anyone done a palimony(DNA) test on the new kid?

Hi Rosemary! Where ya been? Missed you.
Yeah, the new format is a NY's resolution. Wanted to spice things up a bit.

well, maybe if we are lucky he'll be hoisted up on a cross like Jesus too. That might finally shut him up.
