Cruise is 'Goebbels of Scientology', says German church

The German Protestant Church has compared Hollywood film star Tom Cruise to Nazi propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels and claimed the actor was using his celebrity status to publicise the Church of Scientology, of which he is a prominent member.

The criticism of Mr Cruise, who is in Germany to make a film about an attempt to assassinate Adolf Hitler, was the most vitriolic in a series of attacks on the actor over his membership of Scientology - regarded as a cult in Germany and kept under surveillance.
