Cruise's flim-flam works for Scientology - 2008-01-22
The biography – Tom Cruise, An unauthorised biography by the almost-as-famous British author Andrew Morton – is, according to the Church of Scientology, nothing more than a tissue of lies and, in accord with the church's standard operating procedures, no effort has been spared to disparage book and author.
But Australian readers won't get the chance to make up their own minds. Aware of the church's litigious approach to anything critical of its beliefs or philosophies, Australian publishers and distributors have decided it's not worth the trouble to stock the volume. So, whether the Cruise book would have been a best seller here, we'll never know.
The video of Cruise enthusiastically endorsing Scientology, and his own role in it, as the panacea for all the world's ills is a different matter. Various edited and unedited versions of it are on the internet.
