The Freedom Medal Award Ceremony

Last night I watched Tom Cruise preaching at his Freedom Medal Award Ceremony. That was one big medal awarded to Tommy by Scientology head David Miscavige; who is even a couple of hands shorter than Tom. Or was Tommy standing on a box?

Tom ranted in a very cultish way, especially about Psychiatry. The Scientologists believe some strange things. Ron Hubbard, the founder of the cult/religion, was a science fiction writer which no doubt helped him form some theories about life and humanity.

For example:
In Scientology doctrine, Xenu is a galactic ruler who, 75 million years ago, brought billions of people to Earth, stacked them around volcanoes and blew them up with hydrogen bombs. Their souls then clustered together and stuck to the bodies of the living. These events are known as "Incident II" or "The Wall of Fire," and the traumatic memories associated with them are known as the "R6 implant." The Xenu story prompted the use of the volcano as a Scientology symbol.

It seems that quite a few prominent people around the world, including Australians, are Scientologists. James Packer is amongst the Aussie lineup. Worrying!
