Tom Cruise is bitterly disappointed because he bent over backwards to charm Germany into tolerating Scientology and it didn’t work. Germany is the first European country to take steps to ban Scientology because they feel it’s “not compatible to their constitution.” At first when Tom attempted to film his latest movie Valkyrie, about a 1944 plot to assassinate Hitler, on location in Germany, they turned him down flat – because of his ties to Scientology which they consider to be a “dangerous cult.” It took Tom and the filmmakers months to persuade Germany into allowing the filming. While Tom was there he did everything in his power to appear normal and change people’s minds about Scientology. But alas, the megawatt smile didn’t work- he had barely returned to the US when Germany’s top security officials ACCELERATED their efforts to ban Scientology. That’s why we love Germany.

    Janet, you knocked Scientology and Kabbalah on the same day. Is there any religion you like? Live and let live.

    That’s nothing. Tom bends over forward in an attempt to charm his bf. Sometimes that doesn’t work either.
    He is on the downhill slope. The wold has finally figured out what a douche he really is, has been for all these years.

    GERMANY, love you. You are one smart country to realize this short grinning idiot is promoting a very dangerous cult, one that only wants $$$. USA should be so smart. How many millions has Scientology bilked out of mindless stars & other jerks in L.A. and Clearwater, Florida. Scientology wil take all your money and you will end up in hell, for sure.

    Good for Germany. I hope after this movie bombs, Tom will step out of his lifts and out of the public.

    Nobody wants him to be the king of them except stupid Katie.. and she has millions and millions of reasons for that.. for a few years.

    Katie is dazed-looking out the eyes,’cause she gave in to Tommy boy, her lord and master, who forced her into Scientology. She still looks about 12 years old, young and confused. Sooner or later, her Catholic upbringing and Scientology will clash; watch for it. Superman Tom already has his 2 adopted kids brainwashed with S-ology but could not persuade Nicole, thus one reason for the divorce. Poor Katie; she thinks she’s happy. Maybe so (for a short while).

    Besides Germany, four other countries are on the verge of declaring Scientology a dangerous cult and getting ready to kick them out. The four are: France, Italy, Greece, and Russia. I read this in USA Today. If Germany acts, hopefully these will follow. And that will call for a great big “Hallelujah”. I’M SERIOUS, JANET SHOULD GET 5 ***** FOR THIS ARTICLE. IT WILL SAVE MANY FROM RUIN.

    A big 10-4 to that news. If Germany is the first of several countries to ban Scientology, Mr. Cruise will have a GIGANTIC CASE OF WHUPPED-ASS. His evil cult going down the tubes will hurt him more than the failure of all the rotten, boring, crummy movies he has been making. Hooray and hallelujah, you had it coming to ya.

    Was there a reason Nicole did not get custody of the kids as most women do after a divorce. This religion is so creepy and dangerous I can’t see how sane people can allow themselves to be sucked into such a dangerous cult. There was an article that when Nicole got married in Australia the kids were allowed to come but they had to be chaperoned by Tom’s sister and as soon as the wedding was over they were returned to Los Angeles right away. I hope more countries follow suit and kick them out.

    This is fantastic news. I hope Germany does ban the cult of Scieno (Cult of $). And all the other countries mentioned, do too.
    Its been a great cult for Tommy-boy because it gave him everything. The regular (not rich) folks who buy into this cult don’t get the perks he does. And he is worth it for the Cult too because he brings them more publicity and suckers who will pay ALL their money to the point of bankrupcy to go thru all the “courses” and “levels” that Tommy has been thru. Once he got to “Operating Thetan level 8” (OT VIII) and found out about Zenu and the volcanos and all that nuttiness, he went crazy himself with all the couch-hopping and calling Matt Lauder “glib”. Oh Tommy of wee education and limited intelligency – do you even know what glib means?
    The whole Katie Holmes baby thing was a construct to repair his career/reputation. Katie has been paid millions. I think I remember there was mention of 5 years, 5 million and 1 baby with the option of a 2nd. All Katie had to do was sell her soul to the Cult of Scieno. She is living (and dressing) like Posh but if she believes she has it all, think again. Its not worth your peace of mind sweetie.
    I do admit – Suri is mighty cute. But Katie won’t get custody of her after the breakup. Tommy keeps the kids because he has to make sure they are indoctrinated into the Cult. Nicole could not be trusted to do that. In fact she went right back to the Catholic faith after breaking with crazy Tommy.

    If Katie snuck out and went to Catholic Mass with her Catholic parents, what would Tom do? Did she have to sign something saying she would follow Scientology before the great and mighty one would marry her? Oh what tangled webs we weave when first we practice to deceive.

    One can only wonder what kind of marriage has the couple in separate bedrooms the first year. So romantic for newlyweds.

    Oh ye, of little faith! What’s not to love about a cult that recognizes you as an alien and forces you to ‘audit’ every emotion, event, and decision in your life? “Tom is so very glib,” says Matt Lauer. “Germany just doesn’t understand him, much like I don’t understand psychiatry. Admit it, Tom is the expert on everything, because he is a celebrity and they know all.”

    Janet, there is not much difference between Scientology and mainstream religion. Some believe in aliens and volcanoes while others believe in a man called Jesus who did magic tricks. They all want your money in the end. Why do you proselytize on a Hollywood gossip blog? Do you know your blog has been banned by the German government?

    A religion is a set of common beliefs and practices generally held by a group of people, often codified as prayer, ritual, and religious law.
    Religion also encompasses ancestral or cultural traditions, writings, history, and mythology, as well as personal faith and mystic experience.
    The term “religion” refers to both the personal practices related to communal faith and to group rituals and communication stemming from shared conviction.
    Religions present a common quality, the “hallmark of patriarchal religious thought”: the division of the world in two comprehensive domains, one sacred, the other profane.
    In keeping with the Latin etymology of the word, religious believers have often seen other religions as superstition. Likewise, some atheists, agnostics, deists, and skeptics regard religious belief as superstition. (Edmund Burke, the Irish orator, once said, “Superstition is the religion of feeble minds.”)

    These 2 dolts (tom & katie) are poster-children for the importance of education.
    Neither went to college, far from it. Tom quit school at 14.
    Katie only went to parochial school.
    Cults prey on simpletons like these.

    I live in the city where Elvis lived and died. I know for a fact he would never have bought into Scientology, as stupid-ass Tom and myriads of other brain dead jerks have. Anyhoo, a few years ago, Scientology opened up a center in a large mansion here. Pris and Lisa Presley, Isaac Hayes and many other celebs came for the grand opening. After about 2 or 3 years, it folded with no fanfare or media coverage. We in the south are not so dumb.

    The Germans also caused two world wars. Killed millions of people because of their religion. Supplied Sadam Hussein with Scud Missile, etc., etc., etc.
    There are many reasons to “love” Germany.

    Here are some of Jesus’s magic tricks:
    * The Feeding of the 5000 and of the 4000 men – Jesus, praying to God and using only a few loaves of bread and fish, feeds thousands of men, along with an unspecified number of women and children; there are even a number of baskets of leftovers afterward.
    * The Cursing of the Fig Tree – Jesus cursed a fig tree, and it withered.
    * Turning Water into Wine – at a wedding, when the host runs out of wine, the disciples of Jesus fill vessels with water, but the waiter pronounces the content of the vessels as the best wine that has been served that night.
    * Walking on water – Jesus walked on a lake to meet a boat.
    * Transfiguration of Jesus – Jesus climbed a mountain and been changed so that his face glowed.
    * The Catch of 153 fish – Jesus instructed the disciples to throw their net over the side of the water, resulting in them hauling in the huge catch (for hand fishing) of 153 fish.
    * Calming a storm – during a storm, the disciples woke Jesus, and he rebuked the storm causing it to become calm. Jesus then rebukes the disciples for lack of faith.
    * Transubstantiation during the last supper; disputed by some denominations. (see Christian Interpretations below)
    And you think Scientology is wacky!

    He did all these things because He could, with no prob whatsoever. He is alive. L. Ron Hubbard is shoveling coal in Satan’s furnace.

    Amen, Pasa Doble !
    I’ve said it before- Tom Cruise is a patsy…he has no talent. I feel sorry for those children; it never occured to me that they were part of a deal with Scientolocrappy.
    Jeez, Nicole kind of “sold her soul” for fame when she married good old Tom, huh ?
    Well, the good news is MORE & MORE people everyday are alerted to this crappy group & their evil ways.
    Maybe Oprah can save the kids !!!!

    if a person ever leaves or disagrees with $cientardology, they are called a “SP” or “supressive person. that’s why the brainwashed kids don’t see nicole. they have been brainwashed against her.
    there is really no comparison between this cult and the religion of christianity.
    go to the website operation clambake.

    Tom Cruise can relax about trying to influence and charm the Germans, Wal-Mart did not do any better! Apparently Wal-Mart was shown the door by the German public also, at least Tom was eventually tolerated, if not loved! Thank god Tom wasn’t making a movie that involved people traveling by spaceship, his nose would have been flattened by the door!!

    Germany – the country of Adolf Hitler!!!! Actually sitting in judgement of Scientology. The cheek of this country which has put to death more than 6 million Jews and terrorised the world for more than 6 years.
    Well well well. And they have actually got gullible people believing in Germany.
    No wonder they do not want Scientology. It might detract from Hitler.

    Love him or hate him, this guy is a loudmouth who doesn’t hesitate to tell it like he sees it- but there’s one thing he NEVER talks about: his prostate problem. Long story short: he LEAKS! He likes to project an image of macho virility, but under his custom made suits are custom made “diapers.” He’s VERY self-conscious and has absorbent but undetectable “panty liners” sewn into all his underwear, to avoid wet spots. Thanks to his arrogant behavior, he has more than a few enemies and he’s terrified his secret will be exposed and he’ll be forever ridiculed!
