O'Connel is great... Sliders was one of my favorite shows as a kid.

When he does the laugh, he looks so much like Cruise it's creepy.

This was taken from the link above - Someone posted it in the comments. I bet if you take the site they provided and look into it, its probably ran by a Scientologist.

..............

For one “actor” to attack another in this way says a lot about O’Connell and the kind of person he really is. It seems like a lot of parents failed in teaching their kids that making fun of others religious beliefs is not OK. Ooops, I probably shouldn’t have said that because I can hear the bigots coming out the woodwork right now ready to scream: “Scientology is a cult, it’s not a religion!” I get it, you don’t recognize Scientology as a religion but the U.S. government does so get over it as they are entitled by law the same protections of our constitution as any other religion.

Look at it this way,... if you still don’t get it, If Steven Spielberg was receiving a humanitarian award and was doing a speech in front of his Jewish congregation, and spoke partly in Hebrew and used some acronyms not generally known to the public, and someone stole the tape, edited it, and it was posted to the web in a way that was intended to slam Mr. Spielberg and his religion what would you think about this situation? On top of that you have a B actor in Hollywood, O’Connell, who does a spoof which both ridicules Mr. Spielberg and his religion? Still not registering? Wow! If that didn’t work then you my friend are a hard-core bigot.

Bottom line is that Tom Cruise and his religion are attacked day, after day, after day in the media because they are right about the side effects of psychiatric drugs. Just look at the condition of anyone who has been on them. Sure some people say they are not normal without them, but that’s the same thing a crack or heroine addict says. If you’re still not convinced that psychiatric drugs are dangerous than look at this site below.

Maliciousness and bigotry dressed up as “humor” is still maliciousness and bigotry.

Auditing may seem crazy, but people still do confessions... I am not advocating relativism, but seriously the hatred with which Scientology is attacked shows how people are treated when they diverge from the mainstream religious mentality to any significant degree.
No, it deserves EVERY single bit of criticism it gets and more. Although I do believe you are correct that people should also take a look at their own beliefs in a more rational light.

Loved this vid. O'Connel just went up a notch in my book!

I thought it was an "ok" parody. I chuckled, but I didn't pee in my pants or anything. Nobody can do Cruise like Cruise. He's a phenomenon.

Funny thing is that I don't recall any part of the video making fun of Scientology. It just makes fun of Cruise. I think that's pretty fair game. And I'm saying this as someone who also questions the possible overuse/abuse of psychiatric drugs in today's society.

...OR... the hatred with which Scientology is attacked has to do with their uniquely ugly view of non-believers and apparent willingness to do *anything* to harass detractors and shut them up. These people are fucking dangerous, in addition to whatever else.
