The Church of Scientology Just Got a Whole Lot Shadier

We are all aware of Tom Cruise’s involvement with the Church of Scientology. We are also all aware of how weird that is. I bet you’re not aware of just how weird it really is.
For those of you who are not Scientology experts, here’s a quick rundown of what they believe:
1) You’re an immortal being. Like vampires. Just not as cool.
2) In order to be a part of this church, you have to make bank. Because it costs mucho dinero to be ‘religiously connected.’
3) While you’re also an immortal being, you’ve also been reincarnated several times now. Plus, your past souls or lives have lived on other planets. Like Mars.
Now that you’re well acquainted with this lovely religion, here’s the even weirder stuff: Tom Cruise and the Church of Scientology are both under federal investigation for human trafficking and other scandalous happenings. For those of you who don’t watch Law and Order SVU marathons, human trafficking is SELLING HUMANS. (Read all the dirty deets about that shady bizness right here.) Though both Cruise and the Church of Scientology deny claims of mental, physical, and financial abuse, it kind of makes a girl rethink her Tom Cruise crush. Remember how cute he used to be in Risky Business?
When did that boy become a rich, reincarnated immortal alien??
