“Speculation that Katie Holmes was motivated by concerns about her daughter, Suri, being educated by Scientologists and initiated into a secretive group called Sea Org were given credence by the couple’s joint statement, in which they sought to ‘express our respect for each other’s commitment to each of our respective beliefs.'” — — from a 7.11 London Evening Standard piece by Joshi Herrmann.
If true, this strikes me as absolutely vile behavior on Cruise’s part. To expose his daughter to what amounts to a kind of Scientology-flavored Hitler Youth camp, the idea obviously being to indoctrinate children while their minds are soft clay, seems, if true, utterly despicable.
“An insider told celeb news site Radar [that] “Suri isn’t permitted to be exposed to anything Scientology-related, and this includes going to any Scientology churches, parties, etc. Katie made sure this was ironclad.” — also from Herrmann’s piece.
