mrdarreng (1120603) writes "Tom Cruise, set to play Count Claus von Stauffenberg in a new movie titled Valkyrie, has been banned by German Defence Minister Franz-Josef Jung from inner the Defence Ministry's courtyard where von Stauffenberg was shot. Members of the German government liken Scientology to Facism, and say it "masquerades as a religion to make money". The same body that hunts Terrorist, Neo-Nazi's and spies, the Federal Agency for the Protection of the Constitution has been observing the church for years. A Defence Ministry spokesperson said, "The film makers 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.""
