Scientology vs Germany?


#1

I just saw an article over at NY Times about Germany not permitting the filming of a WWII-set movie involving Tom Cruise because of his involvment in Scientology:

nytimes.com/reuters/arts/entertainment-cruise-germany.html?_r=1&oref=slogin

You might have to register to read this article at NY Times, but I’m sure it will show up in other places also.

Wow! Is Pope Benedict XVI bringing Germany back from the brink of secularism? Could it be?

This story, typical of Reuters ‘news’, is a little confusing with all the contradictory statements, but they buried the most important quote of the whole story in the 2nd to last paragraph:

Stauffenberg’s eldest son said he did not want Cruise to portray his father.

That should kill the whole debate right there, if you ask me.
