You Know, There May Yet Be Hope…

for Germany

BERLIN (Reuters) – Germany has barred the makers of a movie about a plot to kill Adolf Hitler from filming at German military sites because its star Tom Cruise is a Scientologist, the Defense Ministry said on Monday.
Cruise, also one of the film’s producers, is a member of the Church of Scientology which the German government does not recognize as a church. Berlin says it masquerades as a religion to make money, a charge Scientology leaders reject.

    Lotta beer, 99 red balloons and good decision making those Germans aren’t so bad.

    Oh, I don’t know. The German press loves to paint the USA as a hellhole of suppression of dissent along the lines of a Michael Moore screed. Frankly, I find this decision funny because it is infinitely more suppressive and authoritarian than anything we do. Scientology is a kooky cult, agreed, but Tom Cruise is not inciting anyone to terrorism.

    You are absolutely correct, but a opportunity to fuck with scientology is too good to pass up.
