I don’t blame Paramount in the least. I mean Cruise was going around on press junkets for War of the Worlds and preaching Scientology when he should have been promoting a movie. This is clearly unacceptable behavior with regards to an actor and his/her job when promoting a movie, you promote the movie and not your religion; most especially if when promoting your religion you create a huge fracas that egregiously diverts attention away from the movie.

jd - Tom Cruise's bizarre behavior and obsession with space alien beliefs is evidence that religion can cause one to "de-evolve" in their thinking and reasoning abilities.
