ANDERSON COOPER IS INVESTIGATING SCIENTOLOGY AND TOMMY DAVIS DOESN’T LIKE IT
If you’ve been watching Anderson Cooper’s Scientology investigation on CNN, you might be wondering who this Tommy Davis person is who has assumed the role of spokesperson for Scientology. (Scientology leader David Miscavige has repeatedly refused to appear in person to defend the church – some say he is avoiding being served with a warrant.) Tommy happens to be the son of actress Anne Archer, a Scientologist for over thirty years. He was Scientology educated (which is very limited) and his family became so wealthy in real estate that he once said “I never have to work a day in my life.” Since the church is so heavily invested in real estate (with no property taxes!) we figure there’s a connection there. Anyway, Tommy’s former friends who left the church, actor Jason Beghe and director Paul Haggis, both called him a “liar” when David denied the existence of “disconnection” – the splitting up of families to shun critics of the church. In fact, it looks like he’s not telling the truth about a lot of things. Watch the final segment tonight or catch up on the CNN website.
