Murdoch: Scientology ‘creepy, maybe evil’; also doubts Romney’s chances

Oh, dear. Business mogul and News Corp. head Rupert Murdoch took to Twitter to express his doubts that Team Romney could beat The Chicago Way. However, he followed up with some hope.

@ROCKWITHBECK Agreed, but it's his to lose if he doesn't get on the front foot soon

US election is referendum on Obama, all else pretty minor.

— Rupert Murdoch (@rupertmurdoch) July 1, 2012

Indeed. And many are not thrilled; a referendum doesn’t seem like it would be “doing fine” for Obama.

Mr. Murdoch is also not a fan of Scientology, calling it “creepy, maybe evil.”

Watch Katie Holmes and Scientology story develop. Something creepy, maybe even evil, about these people.

That was a follow-up tweet to his earlier remarks about Scientology and Tom Cruise.

Scientology back in news. Very weird cult, but big, big money involved with Tom Cruise either number two or three in hiearchy.

Of course, that led to some saying “what about Mormons?!”

@shakirc Mormonism a mystery to me, but Mormons certainly not evil.

And attacks on Mr. Murdoch.

Pot, kettle. RT @rupertmurdoch Watch Katie Holmes/Scientology story develop. Something creepy, maybe even evil, about these people.

@rupertmurdoch I'm shocked you called someone a creep! Look at yourself you disgusting old man! #creepfithedeep

Since Scientology tweet hundreds of attacks. Expect they will increase and get worse and maybe threatening. Still stick to my story.

— Rupert Murdoch (@rupertmurdoch) July 1, 2012

But, others cheer him on and Mr. Murdoch takes it all in stride.

@rupertmurdoch they hand picked Katie for Tom.Hollywood is protected by the tologists won't they help to keep the leaks from the world?

@rupertmurdoch Good on you Mr M, the more high-profile people who stand up to those cult-leaders the better! All very sinister.

He also took on U.K.’s Prime Minister David Cameron.

Cameron usual double talk about EU. "will consider referendum on membership after euro crisis cured" which will be never.

— Rupert Murdoch (@rupertmurdoch) July 1, 2012

Cameron again. Missing last opportunity for devastating row with Lib Dems and winning single issue election! Govt weak bar 2 or 3 stars.

— Rupert Murdoch (@rupertmurdoch) July 1, 2012

Twitter users love Murdoch’s straight talk, as well as his willingness to engage on issues. Straight, sometimes controversial, talk and a willingness to argue one’s positions clearly? More, please.

Love him or loathe him, @RupertMurdoch's feed is worth following, both for his tweets & his responses to his critics. #tcot #p2

@teemunny None!

@DarraghOT never best buds, not even one serious conversation.

— Rupert Murdoch (@rupertmurdoch) July 1, 2012

@sleepinwarrior Right. Dependency society rots aspiration, growth, energy, etc. look at Europe and much of Britain.

— Rupert Murdoch (@rupertmurdoch) July 1, 2012

@dr_henry77 my folks! Come off it, let's have serious discussion.

— Rupert Murdoch (@rupertmurdoch) July 1, 2012

@billymclean87 Gove nobody's stooge, just doing a brilliant job. No idea of his opinion on EU.

— Rupert Murdoch (@rupertmurdoch) July 1, 2012

And, Murdoch with the “Oh, snap” to the fish wrap of record.

@SettonIsaac Yes, but not the news.

— Rupert Murdoch (@rupertmurdoch) July 1, 2012

Keep it coming, Rupert Murdoch!
