Creating quite a buzz this week is the leaked video of Tom Cruise discussing what it means to be a Scientologist. It keeps getting pulled from video sharing sites, reportedly because the Church of Scientology is claiming copyright infringement. Fortunately, Gawker has taken a stand and vows the video will remain on their site. As they say, "If Tom Cruise jumping on Oprah's couch was an 8 on the scale of scary, this is a 10".
More on Scientology from Dave Touretzky, the Computer Science Professor at Carnegie Mellon University who may be the Scientologists' greatest enemy. Or maybe that enemy would be Barbara Schwarz, who makes the "religion" look even crazier than Tom Cruise.
And in a related post, Buzzfeed shares a slew of other indoctrination videos, ranging from the Masons and Mormons to Mary Kay and Amway to the Palestinian Authority's "Ask For Death" campaign.
