Not See Germany


Germany has barred the makers of a movie about a plot to kill Adolf Hitler from filming at German military sites because its star is Tom Cruise, who -- it may surprise you to learn -- is a Scientologist.

The German government doesn't recognize Scientology as an actual religion, saying that it merely masquerades as one to make money.

Cruise has been cast as Nazi Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg in "Valkyrie" -- and also serves as the movie's executive producer. Von Stauffenberg was the ringleader of an unsuccessful attempt to assassinate Hitler in July of 1944 with a bomb hidden in a briefcase.

Now really, what's funnier -- Berlin telling Tom Cruise that his "religion" is full of shit, or these words: "Tom Cruise IS Nazi Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg?"

Not familiar with Tom Cruise? Ignorance is bliss.

It's a very strange position for a government to take in any case (how an actor's "religion" matters to the business of making movies is beyond me), but what's really funny about this is the distinction they are making between the various delusional cults in existence.

Xenu the Space Lord: BAD.

Yahweh, the Sender of Plagues, the Murderer of Children, He Who Drowned The Entire Planet Just To Get A "Do-Over," He Who Demands the Foreskins of His Enemies, The Voracious Devourer of Animal Flesh, the Destroyer of Cities...

...GOOD?

Maybe if Tom Cruise died and tried to come back three days later, Germany might see the folly of their ways, VOTAR.

I say he should give it a shot. What's the worst that could happen?
