I would like to make a public challenge to meet with Tom Cruise and take him up on his claim that he can “handle” me. I have been an SP (suppressive person) for decades and have been on national television shows exposing this dangerous cult.

As a leading expert on cult mind control, and someone who has been helping people to leave Scientology for over 30 years, I dare him to meet with me on camera and prove that Scientology tech works- that he can communicate with anyone at any time about anything.

Everything worth listening to. All in one place. Pick a plan and start listening for free.

What about it, Tom?

Feel free to post this elsewhere.

Hassan’s public challenge is a response to videos recently leaked on the Internet, in which Tom Cruise shares his views regarding Scientology.

Steve Hassan — himself formerly a member of a religious cult — has been on the forefront of counseling cult members for over 30 years.

A leading cult expert, he is the author of two popular, critically-acclaimed books on the subject: Combatting Cult Mind Control: “The #1 Best-selling Guide to Protection, Rescue, and Recovery from Destructive Cults,” (1990), and Releasing The Bonds: Empowering People to Think for Themselves (2000).
