I am ready to turn over a new leaf regarding Tom Cruise: the Scientology stuff is still way creepy and I have my concerns about what kind of pod-person mojo he has unleashed on little Katie Holmes (who has invariably been described as “impassive” and “vacant” over the last several months), but, by gum, he seems genuinely charged up about baby Suri, and if he is so am I.

Cruise strikes me as genuinely enjoying kids in general, which is a mightly redeeming trait even for a podboy; and though it may all be ultimately tied to pumping the product, I am not in a cynical mood today so I am willing to take his ongoing relationship with Nickelodeon, for example, at face value. Cruise is often present at the Nick’s annual Kid’s Choice Awards, and he has been the featured celebrity slime victim – an ordeal he endured with good humor.

Now Cruise is hooking up with Nickelodeon again to give kids the inside scoop on performing Mission: Impossible: III-style movie stunts, his childhood ambitions, and the best way to prepare for a car chase scene as the celebrity host of Nick’s weekend tween programming block, TEENick, premiering Saturday, April 29 between 8:00-10:00 PM and Sunday, April 30 from 6:00-9:00 PM.


(Tom Cruise joins TEENick host J Boogie to chat with the youth about movie stunts, his childhood ambitions and the best way to prepare for a car chase scene)

Kicking off the TEENick segment taped in front of a live audience on the docks in San Pedro, California, on April 5, Cruise wows viewers and alarmed passersby with a helicopter entrance, then is joined by legendary M:I:III stunt coordinator Vic Armstrong to demonstrate preparation and execution of a car-flip stunt.

The kids ask the new dad questions like: “When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up?” (an actor or an astronaut), “Who is your favorite athlete?“ (Mohammad Ali), and “What is your fondest childhood memory?” (traveling).

TEENick consists of hosted segments Saturday and Sunday nights between Nick shows Zoey 101, Unfabulous, Ned’s Declassified School Survival Guide, Drake & Josh, All That, and Romeo.

New this year is a series of “TEENick Behind The Scenes” nights, which offer kids an inside look at celebrities in their own environment: TEENick hit the half pipe with Tony Hawk’s Boom Boom Huck Jam Tour in San Diego, got a backstage pass with the American Idol Live Tour in Philadelphia, and learned the secrets of Ryan Cabrera’s gravity defying hair on tour in Albany.

In addition, backstage and candid TEENick moments are available on TurboNick, Nickelodeon’s broadband video platform available on Nick.com.

    I hope the parallel message he gives out gets no merit other than the obvious promotion of his new movie. However, that promotion is what he uses to recruit for $cientology in the past, as per “Project Celebrity” (found at xenu.net)

    There is no other reason that Cruise uses his position these days other than to recruit others including children into a cult called $cientology.

    And these opportunities to take kids off helpful medicine with claims like this -

    He says, “I recently helped a family get their daughter off drugs. We stepped the child off drugs, got her vitamins and food… Cruise admits he used his scientology teachings to help him with his efforts…The movie star admits the weening process was far from easy: “I have an easier time stepping someone off heroin than I do of these psychotropic drugs… They can become suicidal, so you’ve got to do it under a doctor and vitamins because any drug you put in your system is a poison.”

    That message, from a crazed person who thinks he can cure heroin additiction in 3 days – is to take kids off medicine that has positive consequences and helps people with bonified medical conditions. $cientology suggest vitamins for medical and mental conditions and the consequences have been fatal.

    Including Jeremy Perkins who follow Cruise and $cientology belief that vitamins would cure schizophrenia.

    On March 13, 2003, Jeremy Perkins, a 28 year old untreated schizophrenic, stabbed his mother Elli 77 times.
    Perkins, his mother and father, his sister, and her husband are all members of the Church of Scientology, a group that believes modern psychiatric medicine derives from an ancient alien civilization’s plot to drug and enslave humanity. Scientologists like Tom Cruise vehemently and publicly oppose the pharmacological treatment of mental illness. Unfortunately, Scientology’s own brand of therapy, called “auditing”, is worthless.

    Like the disbelief that Scientology has for ADHD and other conditions like post partum depression, this person should not be allowed to pretend he has anything of interest but recruiting for the cult of $cientology.

    These kids all need to watch South Park to see why these conditions don’t exist – because they have space aliens in their body thanks to the teachings of L Ron Hubbard and $cientology.

    A person who wants neglect childrens health and destroy parental rights so they have a chance to meet Xenu the evil galactic overlord, should be weighed against the kindness to children that is purported to be genuine.

    “Scientologists believe that most human problems can be traced to lingering spirits of an extraterrestrial people massacred by their ruler, Xenu, over 75 million years ago.” US Federal Judge Leonie Brinkema RTC (Scientology) vs Lerma

    South Park teaches this story – parents and kids need to endear themselves to what this teaches and determine how nice a person is TO NOT let you know this before you almost $400,000.

    “The part which really made my jaw drop was what he disclosed here: “Tom Cruise became psychotic during a secret Scientology initiation in which one is told that rather than being one person, one is composed of thousands of aliens from all over the universe fighting for control of your body. After completing this initiation, known as OT III, Tom appeared sickly with black circles under his eyes and pasty skin. He said he wanted to be away from Scientology for good. He just wanted to go back to Hollywood and his home and be left alone by Scientology. This would not happen; David Miscavige ordered Cruise could not be let go. Scientology worked on Cruise day and night until he finally returned to Scientology.”
