Another Tom Cruise Scientology video surfaces

Note: Scientology claims the 9-minute video in which Tom Cruise is topping his over-the-top Oprah couch incident consists of “selective and out-of-context excerpts. But the 38-minute video from which those clips were culled shows otherwise:


It’s raining creepy Tom Cruise videos!

Yet another Cruise Scientology video has surfaced. In this one, he’s seen blasting psychiatrists and the Environmental Protection Agency while aggressively promoting a controversial detox program that Scientologists created for police and firefighters who worked at ground zero after the 9/11 terrorists attacks in New York.

As in the first video, the footage shows Cruise intensely and aggressively pushing Scientology. The New York Post reported that in one segment of the video, a narrator says of Cruise, “If he takes a stand, it’s pedal to the metal till the finish line, as in helping New York firemen (after 9/11). He first saw the dust and heard the cough when descending to the ruins, where he bolstered morale among firemen. The devastation had spread an unprecedented combination of toxins through the air — and it was lethal.”

Cruise adds, “The EPA came out and said the air was clean. Of course, as a Scientologist, you go, ‘That’s a lie, an outright lie. … You know, you just go, ‘Liar. Fine.'”

The narrator then adds that Cruise “personally saw to the establishment of a first New York-covered detox project. And, no, he did not ask permission.”

If he had, he likely would not have received it. The program, which employs saunas and megadoses of vitamins, has proved controversial with many city officials, including Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who have called it a quack scheme designed primarily to recruit people to Scientology.

Like another video that surfaced this week, this one appeared on several Web sites but was later removed by some, reportedly in response to threats of legal action from Scientology officials. Both clips surfaced as Andrew Morton’s unauthorized biography of Cruise hit book stores. It is not known how they got released.
