    How did she get a copy to read? It hasn't been officially published yet?

    I guess they forgot that reference from LRH - Adults have rights too. Meaning kids shouldn't run the house. And in my opinion, kids shouldn't have tantrums. As an adult you're not allowed to have tantrums, so why bring a kid up having tantrums.

    She signed a new 3 year contract for the marraige?


    Now why is it that I wonder "What is wrong with this picture?"

    Yes, she recently re-signed a three year marriage contract to prove her loyalty! What happens if she didn't resign? A sec check no doubt!

    Katie: You made a mistake. You are young. Get out. You will NOT lose Suri. You will have money. Go now. You do not want to be there when the :shithitfan:, and it will, trust me.

    Ugghh. I really feel for Katie! :melodramatic: I hope when she's had enough of all of the rigid control, she will find a way to leave!!! :yes:

    Toxins? What toxins? We're all doing fine over here. Didn't even see any ash cloud. No ash on cars. Nothing. Just clear blue sky. :eyeroll:

    Even leaving aside Katie, two things I found interesting:

    First, in the sidebar "Tom's Next Mission," that Tom Cruise is:
    The sidebar goes on to mention that:
    Secondly, in the sidebar "Nicole Escaped," that:

    Katie's Face

    The look on Katie's face is all you need to know.

    So she is being given daily (almost) Security Checks. That will destroy her.

    There is no amount of money that can justify that.

    It actually is not the pure subject of Scientology that is being applied, just the insane controlling parts.
    Tom can't understand the Granting of Beingness, for instance.
    He has the 3rd Dynamic Service Fac in spades.

    After Katie, it will be some other luckless woman for Tom.

    I guess there is a silver lining in all of this, which is the PR image of
    Tom C. and his "Church" is going to hell-in-a-hand-basket.

    She looks terrible - very sad and heavy, with anger building up inside.

    That part of the article disturbed me the most. This child is learning very bad behaviour at a young age.

    This fits with the recent pics of Suri with a bottle wearing heels. I want my bottle, I want to wear the same shoes mummy does. I feel very sorry for Suri. These are going to be bad habits to break, and she is going to have cameras trained on her while she does.

    I've seen other scio kids raised this way and it's awful. The poor children are in for a hard time later on. Especially so with one who is raised with such wealthy parents, there is no need for her to understand about other people and children and how the world ticks. :no:

    I guess TC just likes little people having tantrums telling him what to do.

    The pure subject of Scientology is the insane controlling parts. Never forget that. KSW, my friend, KSW.

    I always find it interesting when people assert that Scientology is just fine except for the inexorably intertwined parts that are totalitarian, abusive and drive people insane.

    Ooh. That would make a lovely signature line for someone. :)

    (I'm not thinking of anyone in particular.)

    I think Tom's older daughter Bella has got to be fast approaching 18. Will be interesting to see what she does with her life. Katie's father is an attorney; it would be fun to see him throw his weight around with the cult & get Katie out. But of course they'll insist, "cult? what cult? Katie & Suri travel around freely, of their own will".

    I do find it interesting that they have not had another child. Suri is now 4, seems most folks have their 2nd child well before the time the 1st is age 4, no??

    I hope Katie is sneaking out for the birth control shots that last for 6 months at a time! Or maybe a morning diet of barley (God---barf!!) & purif rundowns just wreaks havoc on a woman's fertility?

    Look at her pictures from when they first started dating to now. She has got to be thinking what the :omg: did I get myself into?????

    Yeah. But she also got a lot of media time, and a (potential) lot of money. It's not all downside. For the rest of her life she is assured of being more high-profile than if she had never married TC, although she might not appreciate the connection in years to come as the CofS abuses and TC's support of them become more and more well-known.
