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 on Monday, 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 last month.
