How can someone who believes in E-meters get off calling ANYTHING pseudoscience?

Cruise follows the Scientology movement which is against psychiatric medicine and now Tom Cruise admits to alien belief , saying it would be "arrogant" to think that extraterrestrial beings did not exist.

First he said "Psychiatry is a pseudo science" and recommended vitamins, not anti-depressants, for Brooke Shields:

"These drugs are dangerous. I have actually helped people come off," Cruise maintains to Bush. "When you talk about postpartum, you can take people today, women, and what you do is you use vitamins. There is a hormonal thing that is going on, scientifically, you can prove that. But when you talk about emotional, chemical imbalances in people, there is no science behind that. You can use vitamins to help a woman through those things."
I consider Cruise's beliefs to be religious. They aren't compatible with the overwhelming weight of scientific evidence on the matter of mental illness. There's enought evidence to prove that antidepressants and talk therapy can restore health to the brains of depressed people and even may help against future episodes of depression. In the Experts, actor clash on cause of mental ills Dr. Charles Conway, who is a medical director of inpatient psychiatry at St. Louis University, pointed out that:

Scientists have identified some genes that clearly play a role in causing mental illnesses such as depression, said Dr. Joseph Coyle, a professor of psychiatry and neuroscience at Harvard University School of Medicine.
Vitamines and healthy living will not help anyone out of depression affected by genes.

And if you don't know the The E-Meter - "Scientology Secret" - it's a "electro-psychometer" called E-meter, a kind of lie detector used by Scientology auditors (counselors) to examine a person's mental state. John Travolta swear to it and you know: "The E-meter is never wrong. It sees all; it knows all. It tells everything" (nonsense said by L. Ron Hubbard). Scientology claims that the E-meter can measure higher level of physical energy or "mental energy". Here you will learn the truth about this device.

I wonder how will someone who believes in E-meters get off calling ANYTHING pseudoscience?
