I could show you the video, but then I'd have to kill you

I think I’m fairly solid ground in saying that every religion has people in it that are crazy. I’m not saying that they have extreme views or views with which I personally disagree, but I mean actually crazy. Tom Cruise is currently being held up as the perfect example of a crazy guy from a religion about which many people generally have suspicions anyway. What strikes me as odd though when I watch Cruise’s exhortations is not that I find them unbelievable, but that I feel like he finds them that way too. I can’t put my finger on it, but it feels like a bluff – and this man’s day job is acting. Which I suppose makes the whole affair that much, uh, stranger.
