I really have a crush on Germany. Great beer, friendly people, yummy food, fun nightlife, lots of great artists and tons of kinetic art — but this solidifies our budding relationship. Snip from the Guardian:
Germany has barred the makers of a movie about a plot to kill Adolf Hitler from filming at German military site because its star Tom Cruise is a Scientologist, the defence ministry has said.
Cruise, one of the film’s producers, is a well known member of the Church of Scientology, which the German government does not recognise as a church and says is against the country’s constitution. Berlin says it masquerades as a religion to make money, a charge Scientologist leaders reject.
