(Newser) – You can all stop worrying about Suri Cruise: She's not a Scientologist anymore, dad Tom Cruise recently admitted. Cruise sat for a deposition as part of his lawsuit against a tabloid that claimed he ditched his daughter, and that's when the revelation occurred, TMZ reports. Cruise also admitted—after trying to get out of answering—that Katie Holmes divorced him, in part, because of the religion. The tabloid's lawyer asked him whether she left "in part to protect Suri from Scientology," and Cruise said, "Did she say that? That was one of the assertions, yes."

Y'do realize that he didn't say "Suri's not a Scientologist Anymore," right? According to what's published here Cruise agreed that when "The tabloid's lawyer asked him whether she left "in part to protect Suri from Scientology," He said, " ... That was one of the assertions, yes." According to the "Newser" article: He affirmed that she left "in part to protect Suri from Scientology" was one of the assertions. NOT that "Suri's Not a Scientologist Anymore." Cruise is a smart guy. This is a lawyer's answer.

Suri was never a Scientologist. Suri is a child who's batshit crazy father is a Scientologist.
