Marty Rathbun, Tom Cruise's former auditor with the Church of Scientology, tells exclusively that the Mission Impossible star chose his religion over his 6-year-old daughter, Suri, with Katie Holmes.

As we previously reported, Holmes and Cruise signed a divorce agreement, just eleven days after the Dawson's Creek star filed, which gives her sole custody of Suri.

Rathbun was a former high ranking Scientologist who worked with Tom Cruise extensively for several years before he left the controversial religion. "Yes, I think that Tom Cruise chose his religion over his daughter Suri, and I also think that (Church leader) David Miscavige pressured Cruise to settle the divorce quickly," Rathbun tells exclusively.

Miscavige is Cruise's best friend and was even the actor's best man when he married Holmes in Italy in 2005. The newlyweds honeymooned on Miscavige's yacht. The Church has been at the center of attention of the Holmes-Cruise divorce drama.

Rathbun conducted confession sessions, known as audits, with Cruise from 2001-2004, at which time he left the church.  He has since become an outspoken critic of the organization, but has always declined to divulge specifics from those sessions with the Rock of Ages star.

Holmes had filed for divorce in New York, and had been seeking sole legal custody and primary physical custody of Suri.
