The US actor and Scientologist, John Travolta has, together with several members of congress, again demanded the recognition of Scientology in Germany. The USA must have the courage "to point the finger at Germany," even if it is an allied country, said Travolta on Thursday at a press conference in Washington. If an important country such as Germany could not be held to the context of human rights, then critics in Iraq, China and Sudan could hardly be held to account, the movie star continued. Furthermore, the US Congress should draw up a bill which demanded that Germany respect religious freedom. A proposal similar to this has already been defeated in the US House of Representatives. Unlike the USA, Germany does not recognize Scientology as a church.
