(Newser) – Tom Cruise was one of the inspirational speakers at a secret Scientology confab in Britain, apparently attributing his success to his membership in the controversial organization. Cruise was joined by Katie Holmes and daughter Suri, John Tavolta and Kelly Preston, and some 4000 other guests at the hush-hush international gathering in West Sussex. "Because we never took our eyes off the prize, we stand where we are today," Cruise told the mob, Us reports. "We are in this together!" As for protesters outside, Cruise snorted: "They're squirrels."
