you guys have GOT to see this (Warning: Contains Scientology Stupidity)

According to the church of scientology, Tom Cruise has been selected as their messiah or "Christ"-like character to usher in the age of scientology! ROFL.

....talk about mission impossible.

I know they set the bar

I know they set the bar pretty low, but this is far from the craziest thing scientologists believe.  At least Tom found a new way to entertain us that doesn't involve more of his shitty movies.

“The greatest tragedy in mankind's entire history may be the hijacking of morality by religion.”

“It may be that our role on this planet is not to worship God, but to create him.”

i'd have to say though, out of every famous person in existance, i think tom cruise would play in the bottom 10 for being a religious figure for us all to worship.

I guess even religions need diplomats these days. Comparing it to christ is a contradiction though. The theology is completely incompatible.

I think Scientology just passed Christianity - maybe even Christian science - in the irrationality race. :ROTF:

I can't believe you ever had them in 2nd or 3rd.  Scientology was always #1 in my book!

It seems as if scientology

It seems as if scientology is trying to be as irrational and completely bull as humanely possible.  It's amazing that so many people actually believe this crap.

Actually, the more I think

Actually, the more I think about it the more it makes sense, from a certain point of view. Name a scientologist. Name two. Now try and name 5. I bet you can't. Only name that generally comes to mind is Cruise. So he's like a giant billboard for them. Interesting that it took them so long to come up with it.

Finally a religion that picks someone who actually exists to be their messiah...you know, instead of one of those fictional ones. Irrational my ass. I think this is the most rational thing a religion has ever done. All kneel down before your new messiah: Lord Thomas Cruise Napother IV...or Maverick, if you prefer.

You do not want to know what happened to chef! That was just about the nastiest South Park ever!

I think Krehlic should see that one!  Basically, they killed chef off.  From my understanding, Issac Hayes left the show because of the scientology episode.  Apparently, he's a memeber, so they completely made chef look like a total bastard in the last episode he was in, and killed him off in a most brutal way!  It kicked ASS!  

 

And Faithless, you stole the words right outa my mouth!  Damnit! lol  After reading the articles the same idea popped into my head, so I was looking to see if somene else had already written it!  You beat me to the punch, but I still think we get to crucify him now! 

The darkness of godlessness lets wisdom shine.

Oh no, I know what happened

Oh no, I know what happened to Chef. I mean, what ever happened to the voice actor that plays Chef. He left because of the episode about scientology. It's funny how he has no problem making fun of everyone else, but then when they make fun of his religion, if you can call it that, he gets all mad and leaves.

But yea, I saw the episode about the super adventure club or whatever and saw Chef get impaled then torn to pieces by a bear and lion.

I heard the response of the shows creators - they basically said he had no problem when they made fun of Christians, jews and Moslems, but as soon as they made fun of his mythology, he got mad.
