Tom Cruise has won high praise from his War of the Worlds co-star Tim Robbins, who thinks the new United Artists studio boss is among the most professional and positive people in the business. While many Hollywood experts criticise the MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE star for his Scientology stance and bizarre behaviour on chat shows, Tinseltown activist Robbins has nothing but fond memories of working with the movie star. And Robbins is far from surprised Cruise and his production partner Paula Wagner have revived Charlie Chaplin's United Artists studio - and he's convinced they'll be producing hit film after hit film. Robbins says, "From working with him, there isn't a more positive person on the set that I've worked with. "What he might be talking about or advocating, I think, comes from a positive point of view. "I don't ever feel that he's a destructive person or a negative person or a person that plays games or anything like that; he's always so supportive and so positive when he's working with you."

To James Lightfield and The World Re CCHR: Please visit http://www.xenutv.com/pickets/ots.htm. Dennis Clarke is the head of a Scientology front group called The Citizen's Commission on Human Rights. The CCHR was created for the purpose of destroying Psychiatry. When it comes to human rights, Dennis Clarke is not exactly Ghandi. His approach leaves the "non" out of non-violent. In video clips you'll see Clarke bully his way through a crowd, attempting to start a fight. $cientology is not a religion, it's a DANGEROUS CULT!

I'm shocked, boys and girls! Very hard to believe that hate mongers such as "2¢" can churn themselves up so inside that they rant on and on, repeating themselves in verbose paragraphs about some celeb's church. Who's up there in the bell tower with you and your Enfield, 2¢? Could you maybe grab the de-caf pot next time?Okay, I'm joking about a serious matter. What kind of trouble is 2¢ trying tuo stir up around AMerica's Thanksgiving tables and family gatherings where some unsuspecting Scientologist may sit? What innocent Scientologist bookkeeper in Gloucester does 2¢ want to get fired for her religion? And...why? I am bemused.Years ago, a fanatic put an anti-Semitic flyer on my windshield. It read much like the post from 2¢: repetitive, frantic, emotional, of course condemnatory, and chock full of allegations neither side could prove or disprove.There's no excuse for the child who tells lies about other children to start a fight between them. What motives and sad illness can we ascribe to an adult who still does so?In shorter words...Ick!

The success of Tom Cruise as an Actor and the spectacularly successful Partnership with Paula Wagner in Cruise/Wagner Productions is the envy and admiration of many of their peers in Hollywood. Tom Cruise and Cruise/Wagner have long been recognized for dedication, hard work. persistence in getting a film wrapped on time. It no doubt is a delight for Mr. Cruise to receive this laudatory missive from Tim Robbins as Mr. Cruise and Ms. Wagner embark on their new venture at United Artists. Tim Robbins association and production of highly regarded and successful films both as an actor and director has put him in a rare category. One hopes Mr. Robbins and Mr. Cruise have the opportunity to work together again.

What a kiss-ass Robbins is! He's a co-star in Cruise's latest film and obviously wants more work with Cruise in the future now that Tom will be a studio head. I suppose he'll join $cientology now! .

I enjoyed reading Tim’s letter about Tom. Tom is a good guy. We live in a free society where it’s okay to express a viewpoint. Somehow, it became unholy to say anything about anti-depressants, anti-psychotics. The pharmaceutical companies are not gods. And, millions of kids have been put on these highly addictive brain damaging drugs with many other horrible side effects. I think it really takes a lot of guts to speak out against them. It’s very easy to look the other way and not be willing to take a peak at what is really there. But, once you look into Pandora’s Box, you just have to say something. I’m sure that was Tom’s intention and I know he has helped very many get free of the yoke of these psychiatric drugs. It took guts to speak out and I applaud Tom.

Tom Cruise is a high-level $cientologist, so he believes L. Ron Hubbard is GOD. This is what Tom believes as "gospel." This story is the core belief in the religion known as Scientology. If the people Scientology tries to recruit knew about this story, I don't think they would ever get involved. This story is told to Scientologists when they reach a higher level. If the people in Scientology at the lower levels knew about this story, I don't think they would would stay on the Scientology hamster wheel. It is a road to total something, but not freedom. 75 million years ago, there was an alien galactic ruler named Xenu who was in charge of 76 planets in our part of the galaxy, including our own planet Earth, whose name at that time was Teegeeack. All of the planets Xenu controlled were over-populated by, on average, 178 billion people. Social problems dictated that Xenu rid his sector of the galaxy of this overpopulation problem, so he developed a plan. Xenu sent out Tax Audit demands to all these billions of people. As each one entered the audit centers for the income tax inspections, the people were seized, held down and injected with a mixture of alcohol and glycol, and frozen. Then, all 1.4 trillion of these frozen people were put into spaceships that looked exactly like DC8 airplanes, except that the spaceships had rocket engines instead of propellers. Xenu's entire fleet of DC8-like spaceships then flew to planet Earth, where the frozen people were dumped in and around volcanoes in the Canary Islands and the Hawaiian Islands. When Xenu's Air Force had finished dumping the bodies into the volcanoes, hydrogen bombs were dropped into the volcanoes and the frozen space aliens were destroyed. However, Xenu's plan involved setting up electronic traps in Teegeack's atmosphere which were designed to trap the souls or spirits of the dead space aliens. When the 1.4 trillion spirits were being blown around on the nuclear winds, the electronic traps worked like a charm and captured all the souls in the electronic, sticky fly-paper like traps. The spirits of the aliens were then taken to huge multi-plex cinemas that Xenu had previously instructed his forces to build on Teegeack. In these movie theatres the spirits had to spend many days watching special 3D movies, the purpose of which was twofold: 1) to implant into these spirits a false reality, i.e. the reality that WOGS know on Earth today; and, 2) to control these spirits for all eternity so that they could never cause trouble for Xenu in this sector of the Galaxy. During these films, many false pictures were implanted into these spirits, which resulted in the spirits believing in all the things that control mankind on Earth today, including religion. The concept of religion, including God, Christ, Mohammed, Moses etc., were all an implanted false reality that to this very minute is used to control WOGS on earth. When the films ended and the souls left the cinema, they started to stick together in clusters of a few thousand and remained that way until mankind began to inhabit the earth. Today on earth all the spirits of these aliens have attached themselves to our bodies and are the root cause of the false reality that all but Scientology's OT 8's on earth experience. It is the job of all Scientologists to remove this false reality from the world by auditing each and every space alien spirit and human on earth to CLEAR not only this planet but the universe. For those who oppose Scientology and stand in their way like the LMT and all Scientology critics, Scientology promises to do away with them "quitely and without sorrow". I have calculated that on average, each person on planet earth has 2,314 of these Body Thetans (BT's for short), Hubbard's term for the alien spirits, causing you and all mankind to be constrained by Xenu's false reality. The average cost for Scientology to OT 8 is a mere USD 360,000, meaning that each BT only costs USD 155.57 to clear. Now that is a bargain if there ever was one. Hubbard never said the overall cost to the planet would be cheap, but let's examine it. The planetary cost equation is as follows: 1.4 trillion spirits times USD 155.57 equals a mere USD 2,104,550,960,000. Just think about it -- USD 2.2 quadrillion -- s**t, that's enough to keep Rear Admiral Miscavige and Marty in casino chips for a long time. As for Xenu, the Loyal Officers of the Marcab Confederation finally discovered how evil he was and overthrew him. He is now locked away in a mountain on one of the planets and kept in by a force-field powered by an eternal battery. Several of Xenu's relatives can often be found on ARS. In fact I know people who have sat in a room at the Sancastle building in Clearwater, Florida for 5-7 hours per day, holding two asparagus cans together, attached to a lie detector, talking all day to these dead space aliens. And guess what? You'll never ever finish talking to dead space aliens until you leave Scientology. I am repeating this story to you as a warning. If you become involved with Scientology then I want you to do so with your eyes open and fully aware of the sort of material it contains.

Finally, we are starting to see some rationality out of Hollywood on the Cruise matter. Well done, Robbins! Well done, ContactMusic.comAs a journalist, I find it laughable that Hollywood's Media Institute asked Sumner Redstone to pontificate and thunder on about free speech. Less than two months earlier Redstone had fired Tom Cruise--and called in the Wall Street Journal as messenger boy to relay his, ahem, "rationale"—because Cruise had exercise his First Amendment rights. Media Institute feels passionately that FCC shouldn't censor some dirty words and boobage, yet studios can fire actors who speak out. The scary trend is that free speech is limited to topics popular with media and the Hollywood in-crowd. Nor did ACLU jump in with a press release to defend Cruise. I suggest a mass visit by Hollywood columnists to the Los Angeles Museum of Tolerance. When I last visited, the first exhibit on the tour showed that violence against minorities is routinely preceded and precipitated by media intolerance and persecution. “Oh, that couldn’t happen here!”Neither could loss of Habeas Corpus.

It's refreshing to read someone who actually worked with Cruise on a movie. Uniformly people have said how professional and positive he is.His stance against drugging children IS positive. There is nothing bizzare about it.Best,Roger
