Feb 15, 2008 The faith business: Scientology in NZ — Sunday Star-Times
Accountant Andrew Yong was near his office in the Panmure shops in east Auckland when he met a man who would change his life. Andrew Wenborn was from the Church of Scientology, headquartered a few hundred metres away. An Australian on secondment from Sydney, Wenborn persuaded Yong to take a Scientology "stress test", using an electrical device called an "e-meter". Sure enough, Yong was stressed and his health poor, Wenborn told him, and Scientology could help. What's more, said Wenborn, he ...
Feb 11, 2008 Letter to the Editor / Scientology should be met with tolerance — Variety
Dear Peter, I was disappointed by your recent column on Scientology and Tom Cruise. You say some things that are surprising coming from a man of your intelligence and education. You seem to recognize that, in America, we are all supposed to be free to practice – and even preach – the religion of our choice. Then, you appear to deny this fundamental right to Scientologists because of "their beliefs and protocols." You add "To be a Scientologist is not like ...

Jan 31, 2008 Election brings out stars' stripes / Stars' political opinions often stir controversy — Variety
As the fight for the presidency heats up, Hollywood's celebrities will be speaking their minds about the candidates and the issues – and studio chieftains already are cringing. Politics breeds controversy, and there are many who feel that stars should be seen and not heard. The campaign will be shrill enough, they reason, without celebrity input. There's more than a little hypocrisy to this position. The corporate Brahmins wield their wealth and power to support favored candidates, one could argue, so ...

Watch out, there's an alien about An online onslaught against Scientology A VICIOUS cult run by cynical fraudsters, or a sincerely held religious belief persecuted by zealots? That is the long-standing row about Scientology, founded by the late science-fiction writer, L. Ron Hubbard. In some countries, such as Germany, the group is watched by the security services. In others, such as America and Australia, it has won charitable status as a religion. Until now the fight could mostly be seen as ...

Tom Cruise an Unauthorised Biography will not be distributed in New Zealand by the publisher MacMillan. The biography by Andrew Morton, author of a top selling book on Princess Diana, is understood to contain controversial assertions about the Church of Scientology. MacMillan publicist Angie Willocks said the book would not be distributed in New Zealand but that the company would make no further comment.

Tom Cruise’s consuming passion for Scientology is now evident in a most unprecedented way: promotional videos made in 2004 but not publicly seen until this weekend have started showing up on the Internet. In the videos, Cruise expresses his disgust for psychiatrists — vowing to “crush” them with “no mercy” — spews Scientology lingo and addresses the group’s dead founder, L. Ron Hubbard, as if he were still alive. Hubbard died in 1986. Cruise, who does not have a college degree, ...

Daily Telegraph (Australia)
THE new Andrew Morton biography of Tom Cruise has it wrong: Tom is definitely not gay. He is, however, quite bonkers and whatever it is that's driving him is clearly much weirder than being merely gay. I'm thinking something along the lines of that episode of
The Simpsons in which Selma marries Troy McClure only to discover that he has a fish fetish. To paraphrase a quote: Gay? I wish! Yes, Tom Cruise is strange. Stranger still, however, is the fact ... Jan 10, 2008 Tom Cruise and His Bully Pulpit — New York Times

Mega-star Tom Cruise went ballistic over the potshot claim in a blistering new biography that daughter Suri was fathered by dead Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard using his frozen sperm, the actor's lawyer said yesterday. "He's very angry," lawyer pal Burt Fields said after speaking with Cruise about the soon-to-be-released bio. Fields said that the worst of all the allegations lobbed at his longtime pal, including the sway Scientology bigwigs had over the actor's 2001 divorce from Nicole Kidman, was the ...
