http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/entertainment/6240312.stm Germany has banned the makers of Tom Cruise's new movie from filming at military sites in the country because the actor is a Scientologist. The German defence ministry said Cruise has "publicly professed to being a member of the Scientology cult". Scientology masquerades as a religion to make money, Germany said, but leaders of the church reject this. Scientology has been monitored in Germany in the belief that its activities are "directed against the free democratic order" in the country. Its status there as a commercial enterprise has prompted repeated protests from the organisation. Stauffenberg's son Berthold told the Sueddeutsche Zeitung newspaper earlier this week that he objected to Cruise taking the role because of his involvement with Scientology. "He should keep his hands off my father," Mr von Stauffenberg said.
