More On How Super Tom Cruise Changes the World

On Monday we got the video that featured Tom Cruise getting very passionate about Scientology. He received the Freedom Medal of Valor Award at the International Association of Scientologists and now we have more videos from that event for your viewing enjoyment. Watch the first video where Tom makes his acceptance speech for his Freedom Medal and salutes LRH, and after the jump he explains how he helped fireman and New York City with the aftermath of 9/11, claiming that he helped the detoxification process when the EPA could not. Do you still think he's going too far or is he just really enthusiastic about his beliefs?

To watch Tom talk passionately about 9/11 and helping the firemen, psychiatry and more so just

I find it hard to find peace with someone who blatantly pushes their beliefs down your throat as if their way is the only right way. No thanks.

I find the vids intriguing and insightful. People are jealous of Tom's career success, beautiful wife and daughter. Jealous I say. Let's be happy and make peace with one another pleeeaassee. Thanks :)

Tom's fanaticism scares me. All religious zealots (in the extreme sense, and not to be confused with anyone practicing religion) scare me. His numerous comments in various videos about a world without SP's seems rather prejudice. One minute Tom hints at accepting other people's religions, the next minute he's raving about keeping non-believers out of his personal space. I agree with chatondeneige, for the world to be without SP's Scientologists either need to convert everyone or eradicate non-believers from existence. Terrifying, either way you look at it. I hate his opinions about mental health practitioners and prescription drugs for mental health. Many people have benefited, including myself, from this field of medicine. I have an ever mounting distaste for his claims that ONLY Scientologists are proactive and able to better this world and help other people. Anyone, regardless of their religious preferences, or lack thereof, with morals could and would assist others in times of need, regardless of whether it involves charity donations, global causes, physical labor (such as Habitat for Humanity), or assisting a stranded motorist. His superiority complex about his religion is extremely insulting. If his religion is his reason and motivation for him being charitable and a humanitarian, then so be it, but he shouldn't push his views on others or credit Scientology to be the only religion to motivate humanitarian efforts.

I feel like the word cult got thrown around. Not "all religions are cults to some extreme," as someone said. A cult is considered to be extremist, their members tend to live in a way that isn't within societal norms, and they're usually under the instruction of a "charismatic leader," which fits Scientology to a T. Not so much with other religions. If it was a religion truly designed to help people, in my opinion, they wouldn't chase and harass people in order to get members... the contributions wouldn't be so strictly required... There's just a lot about it which seems so wrong.Oh, and the part where he talks about the world without SPs? Yeah, that means the majority of the world must be converted or otherwise somehow cease to exist. Is that not *incredibly* terrifying to anyone else? :(

While I do agree with him saying that the EPA lied; How could any government ever say that air was "okay" to breathe in! There was metal, jet fuel, etc... so I do agree with him saying they lied. However I do believe that he must have been at a weak point in his life, and then this wacky group just filled his mind with these beliefs. The more guy has a mad look in his eyes when he goes into those rants about therapy and treatments for depression.

That man is destructive to anyone in his path. It is reprehensible that he is using his star power to spew that drivel. I hate it when people shove their religion/beliefs down someone else's throat. He needs to get his medical facts straight before he opens that ignorant mouth.I used to like him, but now he makes me absolutely sick.

These videos are the first I've ever really seen about Scientology, and they're extremely (and rather scarily) persuasive. Everyone wants to be effective. Everyone wants to be "the authority" or special or have access to information that other people don't have. These things appeal to a person's ego, and people who are ego-driven or particularly insecure are usually the most vulnerable. (Coincidentally, actors tend to be incredibly ego-driven and insecure). If you look at the wikipedia page on propaganda, these videos fit perfectly. All the abbreviation of names and invented language make people feel powerful - the quintessential secret handshake. And all this business about having to stop at an accident because you're a scientologist is absurd. Again, it's instilling people with false self-importance. And it's typically people with low self-esteem that are hungry for that sort of thing. It doesn't sound like most of their stuff is wrong necessarily - we do tend to be over-prescribed in our society - but their position on mental health professionals as being quacks and killers is too harsh. There are people with serious mental problems that need treatment to avoid becoming dangerous to themselves or others. However, the main problem I have with Scientology is their secretive nature. If it is indeed the truth (or at the very least, an effective way to live), then why keep it hidden? Why not encourage people to join by spreading the messages directly? You should stop and help at an accident because you have a conscience and you want to be a good person, not because some Scientology tenet tells you to help. You can be a tremendously effective person without paying thousands of dollars for "LRH technology" whatever the hell that is. After all, look at all the people in history that predate Hubbard that were tremendously effective. Gandhi, Martin Luther King, etc. I hardly think Tom Cruise holds a place among these types of effective people. However, the video with its Mission Impossible theme, professional narrator who sounds like the movie trailer guy, flashing lights, cheering audiences, and grateful Scientologist firemen make Scientology sound like it's a sure-fire way to become some kind of important person. These videos are propaganda - BIG TIME. I bet that the scientologists are only pretending that they were leaked to draw even more attention. From Mali01... I totally agree with you....and for the narrator voice, I wanted to say, when this movie will be released again??? It looked like it was a trailer for his new movie...but it's not :OY:

I've had no use for Tom Cruise for a long time, but this just totally and utterly clinches it. I'm all for freedom of religion and tolerance of beliefs, but Scientology is, by all accounts and everything I've seen and read, a cult, and Tom Cruise is totally and completely cult brainwashed. What the hell is wrong with Katie Holmes that she can put up with this lunatic? Oh, that's right. She's a Stepford Wife...
