This morning's Washington Post reports that 26-year-old Katie Holmes, who once was a nice Catholic schoolgirl from Ohio, is leaving the Church to join the Church of Scientology, to which her current beau, Tom Cruise, 42, belongs.

You know that you're going to a different and fun kind of church when they have a "church security" division to encourage members to stay put and happy.

Scientology: The price we pay for religious liberty.

Seriously, though, mixed marriages never work. It just confuses the children to learn about the baby Jesus one month and the galactic tyrant Xenu the next.

Hmmm, does this mean she's also in the closet?

To paraphrase Dean Wormer:

Tom Cruise has a thing for Catholic girls - Nicole Kidman, Penelope Cruz, and now Katie Holmes. NK and PC seemed to have been resistant to getting fully on-board the Scientology bandwagon, resulting, perhaps, in their jettisoning? Now he's got a seemingly impressionable 26-year old to work with. Sad that she's so easily led away from the faith of her family and her upbringing. Odd twist that needs some psychoanalytic focus: Tom Cruise has said that at one point in his life he wanted to be a Cathlic priest. Calling Dr. Freud --

Hmm... trying to figure out what saint to ask for intercession to save her. I think Hellboy would suggest St. Dionysius Æropagiticus.

You damned monster! ... It's for you!
