Author Lawrence Wright says the Church of Scientology's only shot at redemption is Tom Cruise and John Travolta. But are the two actors far too immersed to help the organization regain any respect?
According to a report from RadarOnline, the author of the best-selling book Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood and the Poison of Belief believes the actors have a 'moral responsibility' to at the very least try.
The past three decades the organization has been under the iron fist of David Miscavige, and its reputation has gone from bad to worse. Even Miscavige's own niece, Jenna Miscavige Hill, wrote a scathing testimony of her time in Scientology. In order for the 'religion' to regain any respect and be touted for anything more than an elitist cult, someone will have to do some heavy duty clean up.
Of course sources from within the organization call Lawrence Wright's book nothing but a 'fantasy' account of the goings on behind closed doors. The Wall Street Journal, however, touted it a 'feat of reporting'. Who are you going to believe?
Do you think Tom Cruise and John Travolta have what it takes to get the Church of Scientology on a better track than it's run on for the past couple of years? Too many defectors and researchers are coming clean with the secret aspects of the organization for there not to be some sound proof within these reports.
Will Cruise and Travolta come clean as well or continue to live deep within the bizarre practices and outright lies?
