I think it probably rubs a few long time believers of Scientology the wrong way, hearing about all the in- fighting and accusations. This on top of rumors that they are leaving the group. Simply because, if they were to up and quit now it would make them look stupid. And really nothing is a reputation buster more than to be seen doing something foolish in the public eye.
The fans worship these guys you know, they love em, call em sexy, and it was hard enough already hearing they believe in what? We all had to resign ourselves to the ideals, that if the Gods of theatre believe it, it must be so. I wouldn’t be suprised to learn of a splinter group forming. Maybe they could call themselves sequelologist. Has a ring huh.
