Tom Cruise Is A Nut Job
Yeah, I know, that headline is fairly obvious, but here's some more evidence (and more evidence that anybody who believes in Scientology is cracked):
Tom Cruise's pregnant fiancee Katie Holmes will be reminded to keep her vow of silence during birth -- by signs plastered around their home.
Oh, but it gets better. Some more snippets....
The couple -- following the Scientology tradition of a silent birth-- had the posters delivered to their Beverly Hills mansion.
The 6ft placards will be placed so Katie can see them in labour.
One reads: "Be silent and make all physical movements slow and understandable."
Followers believe it is traumatic for babies to hear their mother scream or groan when giving birth. They think it can cause "psychic" damage, which takes years of therapy to overcome.So if there is something wrong with the baby, no medical attention can be given to it for seven days -- assuming it survives that long. Nor can the voice he's been listening to in the womb for the last nine months -- his mother's -- be heard for seven days.
The doctrine stresses newborns cannot be poked or prodded for medical tests or spoken to for seven days.
The comments on the article are hilarious, one commenter writing that they should have those signs to keep silent wherever Tom goes so he'll keep his mouth shut. Or how one said "Perhaps Katie Holmes could hold Tom Cruise's testicles throughout the birth and see if he remains silent!!!" I think you should just cut his nuts off so he doesn't make the mistake of breeding ever again.
