    I think it's also the societal stigma of men being raped. It's hard enough for women to come forward. We blame women for rape all the time - "What did you do to invite it? You must have done something, worn something, etc...." - it's even worse for men because they're often seen as NOT masculine if they're assaulted sexually. Couple that with the fact that many of the men involved in this case are very wealthy and powerful.....well, I'm surprised he came forward at all, considering how he was treated when he went to the authorities 10+ years ago.

    A good father wouldn't work so hard to alienate his kids from their mother (Nicole Kidman). I am not sure I would put TC in the good father category.

    Good point. Though if they were my kids, I'd fight tooth and nail to be with them, regardless of what Mr. Scientology says. I don't know what Nicole went through, maybe it was impossible.

    Tom and Nicole's son said recently in an interview that he and his mom have a great relationship. I was a little surprised, since it's frowned upon to be close to people who are not in their community. And she isn't anymore. So, I'm not so sure how truthful it is.

    Their daughter loves Keith, so methinks there are a lot of people/mags that make things up about just about everyone

    Yes, I can't imagine having no relationship with my kids..... I can understand that living primarily with their dad worked out... in addition to the Scientology, they also had friends etc.... in Hollywood as opposed to Australia.
