As more and more reports of The Church of Scientology engaging in slave labor come out, not to mention hilarious rubbing anecdotes, a former member has come forward with his experience building luxury vehicles for Tom Cruise after being told it was for “the betterment of mankind.” RadarOnline reports:
Brosseau, the former brother-in-law of church leader David Miscavige, said he spent six months and “2000 man-hours” creating a limousine “like no other ever built”.
“The truth is that DM (Miscavige) had Sea Org staff spent thousands of hours doing personal projects for Tom Cruise while being paid $50.00 per week as their salary,” Brosseau wrote, in the dossier.
“Fortunately, I took a lot of photos of things I worked on over the years.”
The images show Sea Org staffing doing electrical modifications under the dash, expensive leather, wool carpet, a metal contraption which served as a mount for Suri’s baby seat, hand-made aluminum “TC” badged treads and a ballistic proof fiberglass roof panel.
What’s more, a huge eucalyptus tree cut down from the church’s International Base was used to create “fancy woodwork” inside the limo.
“The burl was very unique,” Brosseau said.
“Tom loved it as it had come from a tree at the International Base, where he (Cruise) had achieved the state of Clear in the early 90’s. DM (Miscaviage) let him know that it was a special piece of wood from the International Base and Tom raved about it.”
And of course that anecdote involved Tom Cruise raving about wood which appropriately transitions us to another little project provided for him by America’s deep love of blindly believing supernatural bullshit and giving it all your money:
The church also gave Cruise ‘Silver Screen’ — a trailer-style bus — which was made for him using “slave labor,” according to Rathbun.
Cruise used the luxury vehicle as a base for lover Katie Holmes to begin her ‘Purification Rundown Program’, a controversial detoxification and introductory program developed by Scientology’s founder L. Ron Hubbard.
I honestly hope Katie Holmes has a non-Scientologist lawyer who was present when she brokered the deal to be Tom Cruise’s wife because, Jesus, talk about the perfect scam.
CoS LAWYER: So, we’ll pay you $50 million after five years, but first step into this brainwashing mobile where we’ll erase your entire personality and pretty much any memories up until this point, including that money we just promised you.
TOM: *pops head in* Does she think I’m straight yet?
CoS LAWYER: One second. *flips switch*
KATIE: Why does everyone look like women now? What just happened?
