The man who introduced me to SCN reminds me a lot of David Miscavige. We were best friends at one time (for a long time), and I can understand how hard it is for Tom Cruise to break away from DM. Tom is currently getting some space - working on his career. This is giving him the opportunity to get in a place where he can think about things. The biggest influencing factor for him is his love for his daughter. That love may be the thing that causes him to remain permanently off-lines as a Scientologist. I predict that he will leave quietly out of respect for LRH and his "BFF," but will unofficially end cycle on Scientology (like Tommy Davis and his wife have done). Scientology and DM have caused TC a lot of personal grief over the years, and I think he's had enough. Be strong Tom. Take an honest look, and do what's best for your daughter. You can do it.
