"Tom Cruise is doing exactly what Scientology leaders want him to do," Pressley says. "He's a celebrity and considered to be a shaper of public opinion and he makes a good spokesman for the organization. Scientology primarily targets the 'movers and shakers' in society in order to influence others."

Such high-profile personalities - - including Priscilla Presley and Lisa Marie Presley, actors Kirstie Alley and Patrick Swayze, TV personality Greta Van Susteren and musicians Chick Corea and Isaac Hayes - - "add a degree of respectability that breaks down any resistance listeners may have," Pressley says.

She knows well of what she speaks. For 17 years - - nearly half of her life - - she was involved with the cult. Nine of those years she served at the group's international headquarters located in a remote part of the California desert outside Palm Springs.
