Rupert Murdoch Tweets About ‘Creepy, Maybe Evil’ Scientology

It’s not often that I agree with Rupert “Outfoxed” Murdoch, but he seems to have captured the essence of scientology within Twitter’s 140-character limits.

Dylan Stableford reports for Yahoo! News | The Lookout:

Rupert Murdoch, News Corp. chief executive and outspoken octogenarian media mogul, took to Twitter on Sunday to weigh in on the breakup of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. And Murdoch’s tweets about Scientology sparked a big backlash.

“Scientology back in news,” Murdoch tweeted. “Very weird cult, but big, big money involved with Tom Cruise either number two or three in [hierarchy].”

I have written two posts on how people become evil or toxic and the nature of toxic relationships. These posts here:

    Great move. Scientology is competition for Christian Conservative cult members that watch Fox news. Endless coverage of celebrities like Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise will distract the brainwashed masses from the wars, and the f’d up economy as usual.

    No one noticed he spelled hierarchy incorrectly?!  Fuck this old hypocritical scumbag.
