                                Jon Ronson's For the Love of Scientology


Between 1997 and 2000 he hosted a curious late night talk show on Channel 4 (at that time, the UK’s second commercial TV channel, after ITV). In it he talks to, and draws out, groups of ordinary people who have extraordinary hobbies and beliefs.

The very first programme brought together a group of UK Scientologists. We have become used to the modern Church of Scientology’s hostile and controlling attitude towards media interviews. In contrast, these people  are unsupervised and relaxed. They genuinely appear to be speaking their minds . As a consequence, they come over far more sympathetically.

Some activists may criticise  Ronson for not asking hard questions about the abuses of Scientology. Fair enough. However, I feel there is a place for this type of programme. It is the nearest that  people like me (who have never been members of the Church) will get to observing how Scientologists interact with each other, and the operation of social influence, which normalises the most bizarre beliefs (as long as they keep them within the group).

Granted, on this occasion they are on their very best behaviour and anxious to make a good impression – but this is better than nothing.

You can view the 51 minute programme in  a video here.

               Former Scientologist shares his story, interactions with Tom Cruise

After being raised in the Church of Scientology, Brendan Tighe says he signed a “Billion-Year Contract” with the Sea Organization, which is devoted to the most devout members of the church. Tighe says that reports of auditions to be in a relationship with Tom Cruise were accidentally sent to his printer, which is how he learned that an interaction with Cruise and actress Scarlett Johansson didn’t go well. He left scientology in 2011, and joins Megyn Kelly TODAY with his story.

Scarlett Johansson calls the claim that she auditioned to date Tom Cruise 'demeaning' and 'crazy'

Let me just get a bit stupid to explain this...
Actresses were invited to an audition for a movie.
They were not told they were being auditioned to have Tom Cruise jump on their bones.

                           New Documentary Short - The Outside: Suburban Scientology

Nightingale Films

Published on Aug 24, 2018

Scientology is known around the world for all the strange things that they believe in and practice. Most of the documentaries focus on the American side with the likes of Tom Cruise. But this is the first to show British Scientology and how it is closer than you think.

* * * * * END INTRODUCTION * * * * *

Information from Incredulicide on WWP:

* * * * * BEGIN QUOTATION * * * * *

Inspired by Louis Theroux's style, Joe Hoyle decided to do a British-centric documentary on Scientology, and sat down with ex-scientologists to talk about their experience. He went to a protest at the founders home of Saint Hill Manor during the biggest Scientology event of the year. He also talked to a current member of Scientology for their views on what he had heard.

The full film will be released next month.

* * * * * END QUOTATION * * * * *
