Cruise encourages press to accept Scientology

Religious Hollywood actor TOM CRUISE has infuriated a number of leading Tinseltown entertainment journalists, after encouraging them to embrace his Scientology faith.

The actor – who has been an enthusiastic ambassador for the controversial religion since the late 1980s – sent packages to a number of reporters containing a plaque listing the 12 rules of Scientology.

Cruise also informed the correspondents he had made donations in their names to the Church Of Scientology.

One of the journalists says, “This was eccentric, to sat the least. But what annoyed people more was the note that he had enclosed, saying he’d made a donation to Scientology in our names.”
