We Don't have a Name - Is that right?

November 6 2007.

Sunday night, Tom Cruise rewarded high-ranking members of the Church of Scientology with tickets to a private screening of his new movie, "Lions for Lambs."

This is the provocative anti-war movie which he executive-produced for United Artists with partner Paula Wagner.

I rather doubt that director Robert Redford, who's also a co-star, and Cruise's other co-star, Meryl Streep, had any idea that the screening room at the Museum of Modern
Art and the cocktail party following was full of Scientologists, including the two big honchos of the New York division.

But others from the standard screening-invite list recognized strangers in their midst. As one inside observer snipped, "Who are all these people?"

While Streep and Redford's guests included family, friends and associates, nearly all of Cruise's retinue came from the Church.

They included Rev. John Carmichael and president of the New York chapter Lori Alpers.

Other Scientologists whom Cruise invited included Jim Woodworth and Carole Hamaker, each of whom have taken extensive classes in the organization. Another couple, Marian and Cal Henry, also have dozens of classes under their belts.
Cruise's other Scientology guests were Randy Hepner, a jet pilot, and John Danielson, partner with former Bush Department of Education Secretary Rod Paige in Chartwell Education.

In 2005, Danielson, according to published reports, tried to push Applied Scholastics, a Scientology education program, in the St. Louis public school system.

Just in case something went wrong, he also invited Scientology's New York lawyer, Eric Lieberman.

Cruise also brought to the screening wife Katie Holmes, her parents and brother, as well his own mother and sister, cousin Amy Mapother, and hot young actor Wes Okerson, whose sole credit, according to the Internet Movie Database, is a small part in a relatively unseen film called "The Grand."

Also invited by Cruise was Las Vegas home builder Ernie Domanico and real estate agent  
Bob Barnhart. Cruise could very well be buying a home in Sin City or investing in a new development.

All of the Scientologists, said keen-eyed observers at the screening, wore little gold pins in their lapels.

Considering how Cruise's proselytizing about Scientology may have cost him ticket-holders during the promotion for his last movie, "Mission: Impossible 3," it's certainly curious that he risked having so many of his church pals in attendance — especially with United Artists' financial investors from Merrill Lynch and other banks also there.

Even though Cruise has a financial stake in "Lions," he didn't stick around to discuss its merits.

After the movie was over, Cruise and company took off, leaving movie legends Streep and Redford, as well as MGM /UA bigwigs Harry Sloan and Rick Sands, to handle the after-party upstairs in the museum.

Other guests were glum they didn't get to see Cruise and Holmes up close and personal.

But as one insider put it, Holmes, who'd just finished the New York marathon, seemed "robotic." Maybe she was just tired!

So let's look at some of these guests of Mr. cruise, shall we?

I've already shown him before but this really is your classic Reverend, as if we were in any doubt that religion and scientology go hand in hand with practicing medicine without a license, what better representative than this man, the Reverend John Carmichael.,%20the%20Village%20Voice.htm

Cal Henry and Marian Mapother Henry:
Gee, they got a band.On NBC's Daytime:

Cal henry is Tom Cruise's nephew, Marian is Cal's Mother. They live in Clearwater, Florida, the band is called WD Han translates to 'We don't have a name',yes, you do, it's called IAS, I am Scientologist.Where would we be without Smurf?

Randy Hepner, unfortunatly can't find much about him except from Scientology's own Freedom Magazine:The same one that attacks people like John Sweeney for exposing Scientology.

And yet again, these people use people in the name of help.Help to further Scientology.

John Danielson and Rod Paige:

This commentary deserves a special mention all of it's own, Pamela Lichtenwaler gives a fantastic commentary on Scientology getting into your Schools, the Scientology participants, including former Secretary of Education Rod Paige’s Chief of Staff Scientologist John Danielson, discussing using their roles on behalf of Scientology in American public education.

And another excellent blog about Scientology creeping into schools, with the unlikely name of, I thought it was scientology.

The alliance of Charter Schools, Scientology and the Nation of Islam.

Yeah it is him and he is involved in the Headley Case (Eric M. Lieberman)
Scientology Forced Labor Claims Hit the 9th Circuit
    ShareThis - consider it shared.    
PASADENA, Calif. (CN) - Two former Scientology ministers want the 9th Circuit to let them sue the church for forced labor, rejecting application of the First Amendment's ministerial exception.
 Husband and wife Claire and Marc Headley each filed complaints against the Church of Scientology under the Trafficking Victims Act after leaving the Sea Organization, an order of Scientology in which members work long hours and perform hard labor without pay.
The Headleys worked at the church from the early 1990s until 2005. Claire Headley claimed that the church prohibited her from having children and was coerced into having two abortions. She also alleged that members who tried to leave the church were followed, brought back, and deprived of food and sleep, among other punishments.
 In his complaint, Marc Headley said ministers at the church physically abused him. He also claimed that he was told that he would be excommunicated from his family if he left the church without first going through a "routing out" process that requires members to continue their duties for free and perform hard labor.
 Marc Headley has published a book about his experiences at the church, "Blown for Good: Behind the Iron Curtain of Scientology."
In 2010, U.S. District Judge Dale Fischer threw out the Headleys' complaints because he found their claims failed under the First Amendment's ministerial exception.
 On Thursday, a three-judge appeals panel heard arguments to revive the case
     "The simple fact is that where a religious organization does not have a religious justification for the conduct at issue it cannot avail itself of the protection of the First Amendment," the Headleys' counsel, Kathryn Saldana of Kendall Brill Klieger, told the panel.
 Asked whether the court could consider the claims without first reading the doctrine of the church to determine psychological compulsion, Saldana said the Scientology church had been "subversive of good order" and had violated fundamental constitutional rights.
     The church's attorney, Eric Lieberman, countered that the Headleys' claims related only to their "participation in the religion."
A forced labor claim is barred, "based upon psychological factors which relate to the beliefs: the religious upbringing, the religious training, the religious practices, the religious lifestyle restraints, religious order, and the rules and customs and discipline of a church," Lieberman said.
 In her five-minute rebuttal Saldana continued tying the case to constitutional rights, rather than religious doctrine.
     "This country was created on the basis of freedom," Saldana said.
     "The 13th Amendment was enacted to ban involuntary servitude and slavery, and

Congress in enacting the forced labor statute recognized that the definition they've given for forced labor is a crime of involuntary servitude," she added.
Judges Dorothy Nelson, Diarmuid O'Scannlain and Norman Smith presided over the hearing.,_Inc.,_et_al./Supreme_Court_Docket
