A poster denouncing Scientology has gone up on a public kiosk outside the Scientology headquarters in Berlin.
Local officials warn that Scientology may be “undemocratic” — part of an ongoing battle between Berlin and the guardians of L. Ron Hubbard’s arcane belief system.
With Tom Cruise in town this week to promote his new Nazi drama “Valkyrie”, a district of Berlin has quietly posted a warning sign near the city’s Scientology headquarters, explaining that local authorities mistrust the organization.
A public kiosk on the sidewalk in Charlottenburg bears a poster with a big STOP sign and a printed message: “The district of Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf expresses its opposition to the activities of the Scientology sect in this district and in Berlin and hopes that responsible parties in Berlin will watch the Scientology sect with a critical eye in the near future, and hopes that any illegal activities will be made public.”
