On October 10, 2020 Chelsea Stewart wrote an article for Showbiz Cheat Sheet about Tom Cruise’s abandonment of his daughter, Suri.
Cruise is, for whatever reason, one of the most popular and powerful actors in Hollywood. According to Celebrity Net Worth, “Between 2011 and 2019, he likely earned at least another $300 million, bringing his total career earnings (salary and bonuses) between 1983 and 2019, to $745 million.”
The Mission Impossible actor is also well known as a fanatic Scientologist.
Scientology leader David Miscavige had a custom, diamond studded medal created just for Tom and insulted the entire Sea Org by announcing that Cruise was, “the most dedicated Scientologist I know”.
One of the most important things Tom Cruise has done for COS is his public modeling of his “church’s” teachings on family.
Cruise gives Never Ins a clear picture of Scientology priorities.
As the most dedicated Scientologist, his symbiotic relationship with David Miscavige is far more important to him than loyalty to his wives or, most tragically, Suri.
According to Stewart’s article “…Cruise has not been seen in public with his daughter since 2013.”
Perhaps he is emulating his beloved leader who hasn’t been seen in public with his wife since 2007.
At least Suri’s whereabouts are known.
Scientology has never done a wrong thing in the history of its existence to hear them tell it. During Leah Remini’s award winning A&E docuseries, the “church’s” denials of every claim became a regular part of the show.
In typical fashion the cult has issued a rebuttal, which is included in the piece:
“the Church of Scientology refuted those claims, telling the outlet, ‘Everything about your inquiry misrepresents the Church of Scientology, its practices, and the lifestyle of its ministry.'”
This is standard Scientology policy; attack, never defend.
Here, as always, COS insists they are being misrepresented, yet at the same time they continue to operate in the shadows, hiding their true actions and creating fictional narratives to shelter behind.
If one wishes to be accepted as a vegetarian then one should not eat meat in public.
Visible actions by Scientologists are the only thing the public has with which to form an opinion.
In this case, Tom Cruise is clearly seen neglecting his little girl who is not a Scientologist while still involved with Connor and Isabella who are. Given the policy of Disconnection and the reasons for it, there is no great leap of logic to guess the motivation behind his choices.
Cruise has a materialistic vested interest in keeping close to Miscavige.
Where else would he find such adoration? Such royal ego stroking as he receives at his bosom buddy’s command would never be duplicated in the real world.
Because of David Miscavige, Cruise is allowed to dwell in his secure bubble of conceit and pride, his every demand met.
What other religion in the world would force its members to work around the clock in the stifling heat of a California Summer to turn a sandy, desert landscape into a field of wildflowers just to fulfill a man’s fantasy?
A tax exempt conglomerate masquerading as a religion uses millions of dollars, “donations” by parishioners for religious services, to lavish Cruise with incredible gifts and extravagant birthday parties aboard COS’ luxury cruise ship (no pun intended) Freewinds.

On again, off again Scientology mouthpiece Marty Rathbun provided insider details about some of these gifts here.
Tom Cruise has got it made, being treated like a sultan, second only to Miscavige.
Why would he risk it all over one little girl?
Scientology is very wrong.
From all signs the public has an extremely clear picture of the lifestyle of its ministry.
Tom Cruise will smugly tell the world that “it is a privilege to call yourself a Scientologist and it is something you have to earn.” Apparently one way of earning such a designation is to abandon your innocent daughter, leaving her to grow up without a father’s love, input and direction.
He says “He or she has the ability to create new and better realities and improve conditions.”
What is Suri’s reality? How is her condition better or improved by the lack of a father, especially knowing her half siblings have a place in his life while she doesn’t.
If Tom Cruise chooses Scientology over his own child, then that says everything we need to know about his so-called religion. By the same token, it also says everything we need to know about Tom Cruise.
COS can deny and refute until judgment day but their most visible celebrity spokesman’s actions paint a clear and solid picture.
His child can grow up without him as long as David Miscavige is happy.
In retrospect, perhaps Suri is better off.
