Tom Cruise and the Scientology video – what a lot of noise

January 21, 2008 at 12:34 am (Scientology, Scientology video, Tom Cruise)

What Tom Cruise – or rather Scientology – is experience is religious discrimination born in the mind of some old-time Nazis. Certainly he is being attacked for creating a movie about the German resistance in World War II! That’s why such a movie is important and that’s why his non-Scientologist partner Paula Wagner needs to be congratulated for her honest and straight answer to the current hate mongering:

Wagner, who works alongside Cruise as the co-owner and CEO of their
company United Artists Entertainment, released the following statement
of support
on Friday (January 18):

“I have known and worked
with Tom for more than 25 years. He’s a rock-solid dependable partner,
and I have the utmost respect and admiration for his talent, integrity,
kindness, and dedication. Andrew Morton’s book is a disgraceful piece
of gossip-mongering, filled with distortions and outright lies that no
sensible person will take seriously. I am not a Scientologist, nor are
most of the people Tom and I work with, but that doesn’t mean I can sit
by silently while he is attacked for his religious beliefs. As a
filmmaker and an American, I feel strongly that an individual’s
religion should have no bearing on their professional life. I have
always believed that Americans celebrated these differences, and to see
the vitriol that has been directed towards my friend is truly
discouraging. It’s easy to mock an out-of-context video, but that
doesn’t change the fact that Tom Cruise is one of the hardest-working
and nicest human beings I have ever known.
