On the one hand, I’m severely tempted to just point and laugh at Tom Cruise. On the other hand, I’m not at all happy about the discrimination being practiced by the German government. At the heart of the matter is the question, “What is the difference between a cult and a religion?”. I’ve never heard an answer that didn’t basically boil down to “my cult is a religion, but your religion is a cult”. Governments should be blind to race, gender, religion, etc… There is never any justice in treating a person differently based upon anything other than their actual actions. Want to ban Mr. Cruise from your military bases because you think he’s mentally unstable? Fine. He jumped up and down on a couch on (inter)national television. You’ve got a good case there. But banning him because his personal beliefs are different from yours? That I can’t abide by. Even if it is Scientology that’s being discriminated against. Funny that a country that tries so hard to distance itself from the Nazis of the past can be so… fascist.
