Mysterious Cruise Scientology Video: We Are 'the Authorities on the Mind'

A mysterious, nine-minute-long video of Tom Cruise talking about the power of Scientology disappeared as mysteriously as it appeared, according to the Huffington Post. The official church video reportedly features the 45-year-old actor saying, “We are the way to happiness.”

Apparently the media outlet was sent links to the video, which has since been removed, from investigative reporter Mark Ebner. In a new unauthorized biography by Andrew Morton, the author claims that Mr. Cruise is the second most powerful person in Scientology, a religion founded by the late science-fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard, behind current leader David Miscavige. During the videotaped interview, Mr. Cruise is also quoted as saying that Scientologists are “the authorities on the mind,” and, according to the blog, “the only people who can bring peace and unite cultures.”
