As an atheist I have often stated that I believe in the right of other people to believe whatever they like when it comes to religion, so long as they do no harm to others and don’t come knocking on my door trying to convert me to their beliefs.
Now I know that sometimes people’s beliefs seem a little strange to most of us if not completely weird, but is it any more bonkers to believe that we are descended from aliens than that we are descended from Adam and Eve, or have been reincarnated after being a worm in a past life? … I don’t think so.
So why is the German military picking on poor little Tom Cruise ? Are they really that concerned about Tom being a member of a loony cult or are they more concerned about a film that not only shows the heroism of Count von Staufenberg, but may also show the popular support, at that time, for Hitler and the Nazis ? I don’t seem to recall the anti-Semitic ‘Passion of the Christ’ being banned in Germany, and that was made by that even bigger religious nutcase, Mel Gibson !
Tom Cruise and all the other Hollywood weirdos have the right to believe what they like, even if the German military does not want an Operating Thetan on level 7 of Scientology’s ‘Bridge of Total Freedom’ to work in their country.
What next, Madonna, Britney Spears and the rest of the wacky Kabbalah ’celebs’ banned for wearing a red string bracelet ? …
… Makes you wonder !
