Tom Cruise vs. ‘South Park’?
The man’s career takes a new turn. Has he not realized that all he does is provide more fodder for them.
“LOS ANGELES, California (Reuters) — Actor Tom Cruise threatened to boycott promotion of his upcoming Paramount Pictures film unless a sister cable TV network pulled a “South Park” rerun lampooning the Church of Scientology, industry sources said on Friday.
Representatives for Paramount and Cruise, a prominent Scientologist, denied he made any such threats or had anything to do with the Comedy Central network canceling plans to air a repeat of the “South Park” episode titled “Trapped in the Closet,” on Wednesday.
Trey Parker and Matt Stone, creators of the crudely animated cartoon hit, issued a quirky statement, filled with references to Scientology and the science-fiction writings of church founder L. Ron Hubbard, suggesting Scientology was behind the scheduling change.
“So, Scientology, you have won THIS battle, but the million-year war for Earth has just begun,” the pair wrote.
“Temporarily anozinizing our episode will NOT stop us from keeping Thetans forever trapped in your pitiful man-bodies. Curses and drat! You have obstructed us for now, but your feeble bid to save humanity will fail! Hail Xenu!!!”

Scientology is about as legitimate a religion as worshiping Sauron and Morgoth. And if someone started a religion around selling the Brooklyn bridge to people, that would be on the same level of integrity. I am constantly amazed how so many people have fallen for an admitted hoax.

Tom Cruise is a freak. He oughta spend some time in the real world instead of the bubble that his money created for him.

Isaac Hayes supposedly quit the show because they made fun of scientlogy. This morning I heard on the radio, that the truth may be that Hayes had a stroke, and CANNOT work on the show. Supposedly he is surrounded by Scientologists who may have made this “quitting” statement for him, and that perhaps he never made the statement at all.
So, which is the truth?

I can’t believe they canceled plan to re-air that episode just because of that moron.
