Germany disses Tom
The German government is refusing to let the Tom Cruise film VALKYRIE
shoot in its country because of the actors strong affiliation the Church of Scientology. I would hate to draw a comparison to another German instance of intolerance because they cant even be measured on the same scale, but were all thinking it, right? They think, like most skeptics, that Scientology isnt a religion at all, that its just a façade for making money. But is this really a reason to prohibit the filming of a major motion picture that would end up boosting their economy? And what about little Leni Fraulein, whos had a Tom Cruise poster in her room since she was four years old, and finally, when shes on the brink of catching a real-life glimpse of her idol, the German government goes ahead and snatches it away. I feel bad for Cruise. The guy gets so much slack for his beliefs and all he wants to do is make movies. Tsk, tsk.

||Descendants of Claus Schenk Graf von Stauffenberg, Cruise's character, disapprove of his casting for fear that he'll use the role to spread his Scientology beliefs. Really?!?!??
