Ex-Scientologist, Peter Letterese, has named Tom Cruise in a $250 million federal lawsuit against the Church of Scientology. The suit is using the RICO statute, normally used to break up Mafia families, and claims CoS is a crime syndicate.

In court papers provided to The News by investigator Paul Barresi, Letterese claims a member of the church phoned his lawyer at home, and when the lawyer’s wife answered, said he was her husband’s homosexual lover.

Barresi, who has done investigative work on behalf of Cruise, tells us: “[Letterese] is just including a celebrity name to get attention.”

He singles out Cruise, who’s made no secret of his religion, saying that Scientology head David Miscavage is “aided and abetted by the actions of Tom Cruise, his right-hand man for foreign and domestic promotion, as well as for foreign and domestic lobbying. He has assisted the syndicate in acquiring funds and [made] his own donations of money believed to be in the multiple tens of millions of dollars.”

I find it interesting that the church resorts to playground tactics to harass people. This multi-million dollar scam operation has the ability to plant a brick of cocaine in people’s houses or kiddie porn on their computers. Yet, instead of doing that, they call wives and tell them they’re their husbands gay lover. I bet the church has a special unit dedicated to putting flaming bags of dog poop on people’s doorsteps, ringing the doorbell and running away and another unit asking people over the phone if their fridge is running and when they answer, “Yes,” they tell them they might want to catch it. So, you better not cross the church, they might put a “kick me” sign on your back.
