The Scientology center in Florida received a visit from celebrity Scientologist Tom Cruise. Scientology leader David Miscavige is allegedly behind the visit in an attempt to convince other members that all was right with the controversy stricken church.
The crumbling church is taking hit after hit as former Scientologists, including actress Leah Remini are coming forward to reveal the secrets behind Miscavige’s leadership and the way non-celebrity members are treated.
Tom Cruise was allegedly supposed to convince the current members of the Church of Scientology that everything is okay and that all the controversy surrounding it are just mere little bumps in the road.
Cruise made an appearance at a recent Scientology graduation ceremony in Clearwater, FL where he had a front row seat. Clearwater, Florida is and has been the longtime home base for the Church of Scientology.
Scientology watchdog Tony Ortega released an email he obtained that was sent from a Danish recruiter for the church, Niels Kjeldsen. It was sent to Anette Iren Johansen who has recently left Scientology.
In the email Kjeldsen wrote that the home base of the church “is where you will find the largest collection of VIPs and hardcore Scientologists.” Later in the email, Kjeldsen said, “The last graduation had Tom Cruise take my seat in the front row.”
Johansen, who is the one who supplied the email to Ortega told him, “I was surprised that Tom Cruise showed up. I thought he would keep a low profile. Since the hardcore Scientologists are there, he’s probably looking for a girlfriend.”
It was former Scientology spokesman Mike Rinder who revealed that Tom Cruise’s visit to the Scientology center was an orchestrated maneuver by leader David Miscavige. Rinder stated that Miscavige is trying anything he can to save the church from a “total implosion.”
Rinder went on to say, “The smoke [Miscavige] has been blowing is getting very thin and so he has to come up with ‘bigger and better.’ The extent of how over-the-top he is making his next Greatest Show on Earth directly reflects the level of desperation he feels. Things are at Defcom 1.”
