The divorce of Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise has just begun but there are already cracks in the air.
Tom Cruise, an ardent follower and believer of the church of Scientology was served with divorce papers by five year wife, Katie Holmes and she says his belief in the church of Scientology is the sole reason as to why she cannot go on with the relationship, especially when it comes to their daughter Suri.
With Scientology in the middle of the divorce, the church is threatened as it is brought to the front lines of the divorce.
According to one of the church’s defectors, Marty Rathbun, the divorce, if not handled properly will be the worst for the church of Scientology. “If Tom’s smart, he won’t fight her on anything, even custody. He should just try to settle his way out of it,” Rathbun said. “She could press this sole-custody issue and litigate it, and that would be the biggest nightmare in the Church of Scientology’s history. It would be a circus they couldn’t survive,” he added.
The church of Scientology wrote a letter to its followers asking them to take heart during the trying time for the church. Below is a sample of the letter from Daniel Lattanzi to the followers of Scientology.
“While this is a personal matter, when people start to bring our religion into the middle and a bunch of uninformed people start to spread false datum, rumors and defame our religion it became a matter that does affect my Dynamics and I believe that affects yours as well,” he wrote.
