The Top 25 People Enabling Scientology, No. 22: Graham Norton and other celebrity strokers - 2020-08-15
In 2011 we spent the month of August counting down a list of the "Top 25 People Crippling Scientology." Nine years later, Scientology is still hurting, but church leader David Miscavige learned long ago that paid membership was only one resource that kept him in business. He also relies on a small army of enablers, some paid, some not, who help him stay in business even though they aren't Scientologists themselves. So we thought we'd recognize them with this countdown.
As Leah Remini revealed here at the Underground Bunker on July 27, there really is a lot to ask Tom Cruise about his involvement in Scientology, from the way his marriages have been broken up by David Miscavige, to the disappearance of Dave's wife Shelly, to the way Tom has cut his daughter Suri out of his life to protect Scientology.
But Cruise is a big movie star, and big movie stars never get asked those sorts of questions.
