Actor / Jesus freak Stephen Baldwin (left), who has been promoting his new book, The Unusual Suspect, about his life as a born-again Christian, says he is here to save Tom Cruise from the evils of Scientology and talks about him frequently in discussions with the Almighty.
Stephen's brother, Alec Baldwin, is not quote so quick to condemn Cruise, though. In an upcoming GQ interview, he says everyone should lay off Tom because... well, at least he's not a terrorist.
"I think what's been done to Tom is kind of silly," Alec said. "I don't really understand Tom's religious beliefs; nor do I want to. All I know is I don't see people who are disciples of Tom's faith driving planes into the World Trade Center. When Scientologists start crashing planes into the Pentagon, then I think we should sit Tom down and have a grand jury talk to him. In the meantime, let's just leave him alone."
Seriously, people! Lay off Tom Cruise! Have you no shame!?!
Touching on Stephen Baldwin again, apparently Cruise is not the only celeb he talks to God about, nor is he the only soul who needs rescuing. Here are a few of Steve's recent comments about other T.H. Gossip favorites:
-- Rosie O'Donnell, who likened radical Christians to radical Islam and to terrorists on The View last week: "It was a very provocative thing to say. My response is thank God for Christians, because that's a whole lot of people who are praying for her. I'm praying that, hopefully, at some point Rosie will experience the true loving spirit of Jesus Christ. I can also challenge her to a caged wrestling match."
-- Angelina Jolie and her baby's daddy, Brad Pitt: "He comes from Christian roots. I pray that he will do the right thing and marry that girl."
-- Hillary Clinton: "I pray that the spirit of God will come upon her and result in her having just a little bit more fun."
Wonder if he would endorse Oprah for President.
