Paul Haggis quits Scientology

Paula Haggis shouldn’t expect a Christmas card from Tom Cruise this year because the Academy Award winning director and writer publicly quit the religion. Haggis came at odds with the church after they refused to speak out against one of their chapters supporting Prop 8 which banned gay marriage thereby promoting “bigotry and intolerance, homophobia and fear” and after Church spokesman Tommy Davis went on CNN and blatantly lied about the existence of the practice of “disconnect”.

Haggis, in a long “I Quit” letter asked that if disconnect did not exist, why was his wife forced to do so with her parents when they quit Scientology. From E!:

“You said straight-out there was no such policy, that it did not exist,” Haggis wrote. “I was shocked. We all know this policy exists. I didn’t have to search for verification—I didn’t have to look any further than my own home.”

The order was made all the more baffling by the fact that the parents in question “never said a negative word about Scientology…hardly raving maniacs or enemies of the church.”

“That’s not ancient history, Tommy. It was a year ago. And you could laugh at the question as if it was a joke? You could publicly state that it doesn’t exist? To see you lie so easily, I am afraid I had to ask myself: what else are you lying about?”

Per Church standards, they’ll now try to publicly humiliate and discredit Haggis. Painfully aware of this, Haggis isn’t worried as he says he hasn’t made himself out to be a role model for anyone.

Haggis may be speaking too soon. Doesn’t he know what the church is capable of? Namely, calling him a poop face and drawing penises near his mouth with dribbling semen on all his photos. Oddly enough, Scientology has the same mentality as a Perez Hilton.
