Incorrect about Katie's length of being a Scientologist.[edit]

The article implies that Katie only began to "study" Scientology when she began dating Tom Cruise but this is a false statement. It is a commonly known fact, stated by a number of Scientology executives, not to mention in articles published far and wide about her divorce from Tom that she was a member of Scientology for over 20 years before she even met Tom. In fact, the church introduced her to Tom. I am in the middle of something so I don't have time to fix it, but anyone can Google this information. MagnoliaSouth (talk) 22:02, 10 January 2017 (UTC)

Scientology officials are the least reliable source for that information. They still list people as 'members' based on them having entered a Scientology center, one time, decades ago, to give the impression that they have a much higher number of active members than they actually have. Multiple sources have confirmed the church officials engage in this behavior, including former high-ranking church officials, like Marty Rathburn.
Also, that math doesn't add up. Holmes was 27 when she started dating Cruise. If you are correct, it would mean she started studying Scientology before she was 7 years old. So she was studying Scientology when she was in grade school, while being raised in an actively Roman Catholic family? Or let's say that right now, while she's 38, that you claimed she's been studying Scientology for over 20 years - so she was studying it when she was a teenager attending a Catholic high-school like Notre Dame Academy? That would be pretty far fetched.
I did several searches, and I can't even find tabloids claiming that Holmes was a member of Scientology (active or inactive) before she started dating Cruise, much less any articles that qualify as valid citations for Wikipedia. I don't know why you think it's a "commonly known fact," but I can find no evidence to support that assertion. It's not even something I've heard anyone claim before, and I frequent many communities centered on discussions of the CoS. Maybe it's a 'fact' claimed by some church-publications, but that wouldn't remotely qualify as a reliable source from the perspective of Wikipedia - especially considering the tumultuous history Wikipedia has with the church. I have yet to find one article, about their marriage or their divorce, claiming that Holmes studied Scientology for decades before meeting Cruise. So the only way you could make that change to this article would be if you found very reliable sources contradicting the already established fact, that she was raised a devout Catholic and didn't join the CoS until she met Cruise.
