The German Protestant Church has called Tom Cruise “the Goebbels of Scientology,” referring to Joseph Goebbel, the notorious Nazi propaganda minister. The Church alleges Tom Cruise is using his fame and films to publicize the Church of Scientology much like what Nazi Germany did, kind of, not really. They say,
“This film will have the same propaganda advantages for Scientology as the 1936 Olympics had for the Nazis,” Gandow said, referring to the publicity the 1936 Berlin Games gave Germany.
Uh, ok. Scientology is a sham, but comparing it to the Nazis is pushing it. As far as I know, Scientology hasn’t thrown people in ovens and committed other heinous crimes. The most dangerous thing about Scientology are the aliens and they aren’t even real. The worst thing that could happen to you if you’re not a Scientologist are the dirty looks and I have yet to be seriously injured by those. Unless the person giving them has an over-protective boyfriend. Jeez, I was just checking to see if she was wearing underwear. No need to throw a hissy fit.
