So scientologists used the porn star as an undercover officer? Makes a lot of sense and when you think about it, would be the easiest way to do what they are said to do.

there is a theory that Scientology is an organization that not only blackmails celebrities but also helps the cover up secrets they have. Travolta for example abruptly became a scientologist after a gay porn star claimed to have had a long term relationship with the actor. After he joined the accuser dropped his claim and travolta married his wife who was another scientologist. the organization is so powerful in Hollywood that it can squash rumors and perceived damaging stories for their clients/members.
I agree that for a few of the celebs this would be the case; and you summed up their psychology perfectly. But I think that they don’t even breathe without someone saying they can do it first. They may look like they have the perfect life but in actual fact they are a product and image worth billions of dollars. People have too much interest in that product to let it ruin the image by supporting something condemned by society.

I think there's something about the structure/beliefs of Scientology that appeals to celebrities and egomaniacs. The idea that you can buy your way to special knowledge and have 'special' status and power, seems to be something that would interest the wealthy who already have everything else.

So should I not blame the CEO if his business goes down the drain? Same thing.

Don't blame the pope for someone else's problems.
And no, not every religion's goals are to make money Most religions get by perfectly fine without any great level of worth. Once again, don't mix apples and oranges. Islam and protestant Christianity are perhaps one of the least organized and least wealthy religions on Earth. Yet they are the largest.
Scientology is a gimmick to make money. That's all it is. Celebrities who were close to failure joined it, because desperate people seek faith in something.
There is no conspiracy. It's just a cult of the emperor religion.
Well theres always something to it, just dont know what. I proposed a theory but didnt claim it as fact.

I see that you are trying to draw lines, and if were going really hardcore conspiracy, maybe there could have been something, but I do not think there is something to it.
This reminds me of the South Park episode that was posted earlier in this topic, and they actually describe this "cult" as good as it gets, even though it's meant to be humor, the whole thing is kind of funny after all.
If you want to know my theory why the celebrities join this "cult", is that this "cult" want to help others to get their knowledge about life, if people pay for it, and celebrities got loads of money, they see this "cult" as an easy way for a meaning in their life, their money give's them a shortcut and an advantage, they just keep on giving more money, and then get more knowledge about scientology.
Now they might not realize it themselves, but we on the outside do.

The basic term that most likely applies, in regards to the wealthy $cientology spokespeople is summed up in one word:
I have to agree with this conclusion.
The one thing that leads me to this, is the situation with Nicole Kidman.
She always appeared to be a nice, caring person, a good mother, supportive wife etc.
The fact that she took such a HUGE step back from Isabelle & Conners (Their two adopted children) life,never sat right with me.
Along with the move back home to Australia, it was like she had been threatened (with what I can only speculate) & couldn't get far enough away from her former life.
Add to this her opinions on Scientology weren't complimentary.
