Tom Cruise's recent Oprah Winfrey interview included several new revelations — like admitting that he regrets his infamous argument with Matt Lauer. Unfortunately, the Today show host tells PEOPLE, he didn't get to watch Winfrey's two-hour Cruise-a-palooza.

Somebody told me a little bit." Lauer — who sparred with Cruise in 2005 ...

Scientology and the Blackfeet — Missoula Independent

Tribal members are getting advice, free trips—and perhaps a new rehab program—from their connection with L. Ron Hubbard's church. Is this the help they need? In 1964, when Rayola Running Crane was just 13, her parents sent her away from her home in Browning on the Blackfeet Indian Reservation. She and her friends were drinking alcohol on a regular basis, and she had already been in an alcohol-related car accident that caused her permanent back injuries. She says her parents gave ...

Taxpayers' sacrifice to the churches — The Age (Australia)
Type: Press
Author(s): Nick Renton

It is quite immoral for taxes to be extracted compulsorily from citizens to subsidise extensive concessions for religious bodies. OUR constitution makes it clear Australia is to be a secular society. In particular, section 116 provides that "The Commonwealth shall not make any law for establishing any religion or for imposing any religious observation …" Yet the spirit — even if not the letter — of that section is breached by the Commonwealth Government and all state governments in many tax ...

At 74, Imam W. Deen Mohammed has carved a reputation for moderation and inclusion as the leading voice of African-American Muslims across the country.

YouTube rolls out Scientology double standard // XenuTV vs. Anonymous hate crimes — The Register (UK)

It seems that YouTube has one set of rules for The Church of Scientology and another set for Scientology's critics. Two weeks ago, YouTube vaporized a 10,000-subscriber-strong channel run by well-known Scientology critic Mark Bunker. His "Xenutv1" deserved to die, the YouTubers said, because they had already axed an earlier account, "Xenutv," where Bunker infringed a few copyrights. Indeed, YouTube's terms of service clearly say "A user whose account has been terminated is prohibited from accessing, possessing or creating any other ...

The Church of Scientology fired the latest salvo in the information war with its detractors Monday, launching a YouTube channel and touting "its commitment to open communication." But the notoriously secretive (and litigious) organization doesn’t appear to truly be embracing the kind of openness that makes the internet such a philosophical free-for-all: The Church of Scientology YouTube channel doesn’t allow users to post comments, and the option to embed videos is disabled for certain clips. The channel was launched to "share ...

Apparently all of Katie Holmes' recent naughty behavior has prompted loving husband Tom Cruise to reprimand her with a punishment that's slightly more severe than asking her to not only wash the dishes but dry them, too. After eating too little with bad influence Victoria Beckham and daring to consider a promising role on Broadway later this year, Cruise decided to step up her Scientology training with a fun-filled three-day vacation to Gold Base. And Canyon Ranch it is not. Gold ...
