A secret Satanic cult and the Hollywood movie industry
The Hollywood movie industry has long been accused of corrupting the young with its glorified images of violence, sex, and decadent lifestyles. Now there may be another cause for concern. Many Hollywood people like John Travolta, Tom Cruise, Kirstie Alley, Ann Archer, Jenna Elfman, and Nicole Kidman have been drawn into a secretive Satanic, anti-Christian cult called Scientology. These stars and others in the industry are engaged in a heavy recruiting program to lure your children into their cult.
This is not a simple issue of Scientology’s right to practice its religious freedom and forward its secret occult goals. This cult presents serious dangers. Scientology is notorious for human rights abuses, suicides of its members after bizarre initiations, intimidation and persecution of former members and critics, censorship raids on the Internet, and concentration camp-like punishment for high level members who show signs of defiance or defecting.
Some entertainment celebrities are concerned and in their own way are criticizing and calling attention to the darker side of this cult. Actors Jim Carrey and Nicholas Cage have “prank-called” Scientology’s Celebrity Center in Los Angeles. Seinfeld, David Letterman, Conan O’Brien, and Ellen have all poked fun at Scientology on television, and Howard Stern makes frequent humorous reference to the cult. The show Millennium devoted an entire parody to Scientology. Music bands Black 47, Tool, and Faith No More make unfavorable references to Scientology in song lyrics. Tennis player Boris Becker threatened to sue Scientology if his name and photo were not removed from its web pages, and racecar driver Mario Andretti had Dianetics logos removed from his car. Even the Swedish royalty, King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia publicly criticized Scientology for using film footage of them without their knowledge or permission in a Scientology promotional video, giving the false impression that the couple endorsed Scientology.
Hollywood products intertwined with Scientology promotion have already been boycotted, as were the movies Primary Colors and Mission Impossible. Larger and more frequent boycotts of Scientology celebrity products are likely to follow as the coalition of individuals and organizations concerned about Scientology’s Hollywood influence grows.
Scientology currently appears to be in the middle of a global media expose. Anticipating a growing negative reaction against this cult, there is little doubt that the wiser movie investors, studios, and producers will begin to do much more to keep their movie projects separate from the adverse publicity and turmoil Scientology brings with it. The movie industry can avoid bottom line problems caused by bad Scientology publicity while still allowing cult member stars their ideological and free speech freedoms. The celebrities would simply be required to do their cult promotion on their own time and with their own resources, totally separate from any type of simultaneous direct or indirect association with their movie or TV projects.
As individuals, the celebrities promoting Scientology have the right to immerse, intertwine, and lock their own fates with that of Scientology. But as more Scientology victims, victims’ families, and average citizens become aware of Scientology’s unethical and illegal activities, those fates will necessarily include dealing with the growing opposition and backlash to Scientology.
What You Can Do to Protect your Children, Family and Friends:
- Get educated on the real nature and activities of Scientology. (See links at bottom).
- Demand that Scientology’s celebrity promoters like John Travolta, Tom Cruise, Kirstie Alley, Ann Archer, Jenna Elfman and Nicole Kidman face the victims of Scientology, their families, and former high ranking members in forums such as national TV talk shows like Oprah, Sally Jessie Raphael, and Geraldo. There they will see and hear firsthand the damage and pain they have caused because of the irresponsible use of their fame for cult recruiting. There they can hear about the suicides, lost lives, and nightmares Scientology has caused in so many homes (FACTNet will assist putting these on the air confrontations together).
- To express your disagreement with Scientology, don’t buy or use any product promoted by Scientology celebrities or any product that gives Scientology celebrities a forum to promote this dangerous cult without simultaneously giving equal time or coverage to disclosing Scientology’s abuses and dangers, and places to get information critical of Scientology’s practices.
- Write protest letters to the studios producing movies and TV shows that Scientology celebrities are using as forums to publicly promote the cult. Tell them that letting these celebrity cult members directly or indirectly use their business investment to promote Scientology’s secret Satanic, anti-Christian agenda and recruit for the cult could turn out to be bad business and bad publicity.
- Write Scientology’s celebrities urging them to stop promoting this organization to children and young adults and to have the courage to publicly face the victims of Scientology in a national talk show media event.Other Scientology celebrities include Tom Cruise, Nicole Kidman, Kirstie Alley, Lisa Marie Presley, Priscilla Presley and Kelly Preston. Write to them if you can locate their addresses!
