Tom Cruise, in his obsession with Scientology, has seen two marriages end. The Village Voice may have given us the answer as to why. We learned on Sunday, July 29, 2012, from their new series, that he “worships David Miscavige like a god.” Furthermore it seems that to survive in their church one must defer to Miscavige. Ironically, in an ABC News interview with Tom Cruise’s unauthorized biographer, Andrew Morton, he pointed out that it was through Miscavige that Cruise was introduced to Katie Holmes. In essence the Church of Scientology found her. The women with whom he was previously associated, after the divorce from Nicole Kidman ,were also said to be hand picked.
Katie Holmes shocker and Nicole Kidman
What happened with Katie Holmes must have come as an affront to the closed community. She not only rejected Cruise, but she conferred with his former wife, Nicole Kidman, to save daughter Suri from being indoctrinated into Scientology. Kidman lost both of her children to Cruise when he won sole custody of Isabelle and Connor, devoted Scientologists.
Kidman has never spoken about losing custody. However, it was well reported that she had little to do with Scientology. And based on The Voice series, this may not have pleased Miscavige.
The Village Voice
The interview series is with John Brousseau, described as a 32-year escapee from “the church’s International Base east of Los Angeles in 2010.”
Brousseau often specialized in creating luxury vehicles for Cruise. He even carved a pen for Cruise out of a felled eucalyptus tree from the Scientology grounds to match one of his cars. When he presented the car and pen to Cruise and Holmes, The Voice reports:
“‘Oh, JB, did you make that?’ she asked me.”
And Brousseau knew that as soon as she said it, Katie’s question actually put him in a tough spot.
“I couldn’t accept the praise. Miscavige was standing there,” Brousseau says, referring to Scientology’s leader and his former brother-in-law, David Miscavige.
Thinking quick on his feet, Brousseau blurted out, “Don’t thank me. I’m just the hammer.”
He then held out his hand to Miscavige and said, “This is the hand that wields me.” Brousseau says Tom nodded, knowingly. Tom Cruise Worships David Miscavige Like a God: The John Brousseau story
Katie Holmes in New York with Suri, their Catholic faith
Instead of going into hiding, Holmes took her daughter to a very public place, New York City. There they have been badgered by photographers and we have seen Suri often hiding her face. But she has many faces, and is apparently enjoying play dates, the zoo, and ice cream parlors. Although Disneyland Dad took her on a helicopter ride, Holmes is attempting to give Suri a normal upbringing.
Enrolling Suri in a Catholic school means the opportunity to learn about the faith in which both Holmes and Cruise were raised. Additionally, she will have classmates, unlike previous years when she was home schooled.
