Anything Emmy winning journalist Mark Bunker writes on his XENU TV WOG BLOG is worth repeating but this one is destined to be a classic for years to come. Here he writes about the memorable 1/24/07 COUNTDOWN show where Keith Olbermann looks at the recent news story which suggested that Tom Cruise was Scientology's Christ:
FROM XENU TV
Jesus H. Cruise!
A recent news article suggested that Scientology views Tom Cruise as their Christ figure. Okay, the article didn’t suggest it, they came right out and said it. According to the Sun, diminutive Scientology leader David Miscavige believes:
…that in future, Cruise, 44, will be worshipped like Jesus for his work to raise awareness of the religion.
A source close to the actor, who has risen to one of the church’s top levels, said: “Tom has been told he is Scientology’s Christ-like figure.
“Like Christ, he’s been criticised for his views. But future generations will realise he was right.”
The story was picked up by Drudge and rocketed around the world, making Scientology look like…well…just like the wacky UFO cult they are.
Although Scientology has denied the story, that didn’t stop Keith Olbermann from turning it into his number one story on the Countdown.
By the way, if you don’t watch Keith Olbermann every day on MSNBC, you are not an informed citizen. It’s the best damn news show on TV. That comes straight from an Emmy winning journalist, my friends.
Now, I knew this Christ story was fake from the second I read it. It made no sense at all. Why would David Miscavige, the tiny keeper of the tech, say that Cruise was a fictional character?
L. Ron Hubbard himself declared that there was no Christ, that some madmen stumbled upon part of Hubbard’s tech 2000 years ago, misinterpreted Hubbard’s material and came up with the whole “man on the cross” story.
That’s a pretty wild statement and I wouldn’t expect you to believe me when I tell it to you…which is why I’m happy to be able to have L. Ron Hubbard tell it to you in his own voice.

And tune in to Vince Daniels this Saturday when he once again tries to get justice for families defrauded by Scientology’s front group, Narconon.
