It would seem that young Katey Holmes has finally succeeded in tunnelling out of the Scientology’s OSA (they’re the cult’s secret police) prison and sprinted into town. I was always wondering how long it would take a lady from a strict catholic upbringing to crack and make a break for it.
Then again, in Scientology terms what she did was perform a “disconnect” from Tom Cruise….Although in the process she’s likely become a “suppressive person” or at the very least a PTS (Potential Trouble Source), consequently the danger was the church would consider her thus “fair game” as they’ve done to previous critics of their cult (look at how John Sweeney of the beeb fared). Indeed John Sweeney has an article out here about what Katey Holmes can expect.
Now while I’m not usually the sort to go for Hollywood gossip it seems that she planned her runaway with a fair degree of precision (apparently the first Tom Cruise knew about it was when her divorce lawyer handed him the notice). She seems to have got a fairly good and quick settlement, keeping the kid, but that’s hardly surprising. I mean does Tom Cruise want her testifying about all the weird stuff he and his Thetan buddies get up to behind closed doors? I doubt it!
There’s a good collection of articles on Scientology in this website here.
