The German military has banned filming of Tom Cruise‘s new movie at its bases because they object to the actor’s Scientology religion.
Scientology is not recognized as a church by the German government, which claims the controversial religion is a “money-making cult.”
Harald Kammerbauer, spokesman for the country’s Defense Ministry, says, “(Producers) will not be allowed to film at German military sites if Count Stauffenberg is played by Tom Cruise, who has publicly professed to being a member of the Scientology cult.
“In general, the Bundeswehr (German military) has a special interest in the serious and authentic portrayal of the events of July 20, 1944, and Stauffenberg’s person.”
