How Big A Role Did Scientology Play In Katie Holmes & Tom Cruise’s Divorce?

Submitted by on July 5, 2012 – 12:37 am2 Comments

While it’s still unclear exactly why Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are divorcing, numerous reports are emerging Katie desperately wanted to save their daughter Suri from an invasive form of interrogation practiced by the Church of Scientology.

Sources allegedly close to Katie are saying that when she was dating Tom back in 2005 (the year before they married) she witnessed his children Isabella and Connor participate in a Scientology ritual she found to troubling and feared Tom would drag Suri through the same process.

The process is known as “sec checking” (security checking) and it apparently occurs when a child reaches the age of six (which Suri is right now). The subject holds electrode handles on a device called an e-meter and is then asked a series of personal questions that help the Church locate “areas of spiritual distress.”

Some ex-Scientologists claim the questions include:
– What has somebody told you not to tell?
– Have you ever decided you did not like some member of your family?
– Have you ever bullied a smaller child?
– Have you ever lied to a teacher?
– Have you ever done something you were very much ashamed of?
– Have you ever refused to obey an order from someone you should obey?
– Have you ever gotten yourself dirty on purpose?

According to reports, Katie was not in favor of having her daughter go through the ritual and this was a large reason behind her parting ways with the church and ultimately Tom. Now former Scientologists like Jenna Miscavige Hill (the estranged niece of church leader David Miscavige, who was best man at Tom and Katie’s wedding) are going on record to let people know Katie Holmes has every reason to be afraid of what could happen to her daughter.
