Paris City Hall Snubs Scientology 'Militant' Cruise
Paris city hall refuses to make Tom Cruise an honorary citizen because he's a follower of L RON HUBBARD's controversial Church Of Scientology.
The French capital has slammed the WAR OF THE WORLDS star as a "militant" for his devotion to the belief system, which they view as a disturbing cult.
In a debate yesterday (11JUL05), the municipal assembly agreed "never to welcome the actor Tom Cruise, spokesman for Scientology and self-declared militant for this organisation," and one authority described the actor as a "sect-symbol".
The 43-year-old screen hunk, who is already an honorary citizen of Marseille, proposed to his girlfriend Katie Holmes at the Eiffel Tower in the romantic capital city earlier this year (05).12/07/2005 05:30
