The third day of our Hollywood Holiday Cards feature spotlights what we consider to be the Mother of All Celebrity Season's Greetings: Tom Cruise's Scientology-pushing missive and "gift."
In addition to sending thousands of his closest friends and business associates a clear tablet of L. Ron Hubbard's "Code of Honor" (presented in a barely readable, blurry version below, but you can read the text here), Cruise goes the extra holiday mile by including a card reading, "A donation has been made on your behalf to the International Association of Scientologists. The IAS is committed to achieving the aims of Scientology.” Thanks, Tom! While others in Hollywood are falling all over themselves to offer a more inclusive flavor of seasonal wishes, Cruise refuses to drain the holidays of their religious significance. Does Scientology have saints? If so, we're nominating Cruise for sainthood right now. After performing this Christmas miracle of faith, it shouldn't take much more than a screening of Cocktail to put him over the top.
