Southpark on Scientology

The latest Southpark episode was on Stan joining the Church of Scientology, and being deemed to be the reincarnation of founder L Ron Hubbard.

The hilarious part though was involving Tom Cruise. Stan told Tim he didn’t think Tom was that great an actor so Tom cried and went into Stan’s closet to hide.

Most of the episode was then taken up with dozens of different people urging Tom Cruise to come out of the closet. It was just hilarious. The polar opposite of subtle.

I have to say I had no idea how wacky Scientology really is. Southpark showed secret beliefs of an alien called Xenu and aliens being frozen and dumped in volcanos so their souls could be brainwashed and confuse future generations of human beings, seventy million years later. They kept flashing on the screen “This is what Scientologists actually believe”.

A great episode.
