Tom, Katie, Isabella and Connor

July 11th, 2005 // 4 Comments

What a happy little family – especially when that pesky little non-believer isn’t around.

According to the May issue of Source, a magazine endorsed by the Church of Scientology, Cruise’s 12-year-old daughter, Isabella, has completed the “Basic Study Manual,” an introductory level course in the sci-fi-based religion that’s been embraced by a swarm of Hollywood celebrities.

Isabella and her 10-year-old brother, Connor, live with Cruise in Beverly Hills, where they’re being home-schooled by his Scientologist sisters Cass and Marian, according to

The thorny issue of whose faith their children would adopt was cited as a major factor in the split. Kidman is a devout Catholic, while “War of the Worlds” star Cruise has been one of Scientology’s most outspoken proponents. also speculates that Scientologists may eventually turn the children against Kidman.According to the Web site, Scientologists hook up children to their goofy “e-meter” devices, which are used to “interrogate” them. The site claims that the kids are urged to denounce “non-believers” in their own families who are branded as “suppressive persons” if they object to the child’s conversion to Scientology.

Will Nicole Kidman be labeled an “SP?” With the constant battering of Scientologist values (Tom’s kids are home schooled as well, by two of Tom’s Scientologist sisters) leveled at the children, it’s probably only a matter of time. It also looks as if Tom has found another recruit in Keri Russell. Tom has Scientologists present on the set of Mission Impossible III, and Keri seems to be the only one who has been receptive to them.

More family goodness after the jump.

  1. What judge gives custody of two children to Tom Cruise? It’s almost a prophecy of weird, unnatural, and downright creepy things to come.

    Sadly, it’s going to take some kind of tragedy before Scientology can be outed as the cult that it truely is.
