GERMANY ISN'T CRAZY ABOUT TOM CRUISE
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.
