While Katie dined in Los Angeles, Tom was off playing Nazi officer Count Claus Schenk von Stauffenberg in Germany for Bryan Singer's new film Valkyrie. Although the production was denied permission to shoot on location in Berlin (due to Cruise's beliefs in Scientology), filming has begun in an unused airport southeast of Berlin. The Germans are caught between a rock and a hardplace in their outcry of Cruise, a Scientologist, playing a German martyr. Some say their dislike of Scientology (considered tyrannical by some) comes from a lesson learned from WWII, others use this instance to point to Germany's history of religious intolerance.
Should they just adopt the US military's practice of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" when it comes to religion?
