Sign of the Apocalypse #9: Katie Holmes-Cruise, scientologist

So Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are, allegedly, getting married. Not that I really care -- shouldn't we be more concerned about Darfur, for example? -- but there just seems to be so much wrong with it, from the obvious publicity-lust to boost their summer movies (War of the Worlds and Batman Begins, respectively), to Cruise's recent public antics, to the age difference (I'd say the maturity difference, but Cruise seems to be regressing in that area), to Holmes's impending conversion to scientology (don't get me started -- does she have any idea what she's getting herself into or it is all just brainwashing and lies?), to the rumours that she was his fifth choice (what does this say about his character?), to... well, check out this odd site if you want more.

Remember what Slate's Dana Stevens said about the celebrity-industrial complex? This makes Brangelina look relatively normal.
