Tom Cruise - An Evangelist for Scientology?

From MSNBC - Interesting speculation that Scarlett Johansson backed out of Mission Impossible 3 because Tom Cruise was a bit too pushy in forcing his religious views upon her...

Did Tom Cruise try to recruit Scarlett Johansson to Scientology? The “Lost in Translation” star was expected to co-star with Cruise in “Mission: Impossible III” but was dropped because of “scheduling conflicts.” But it seems that there may have been other conflicts as well. Cruise invited Johansson to a Scientology center where he showed her literature about joining his controversial church, according to a report. “After two hours of proselytizing,” according to RadarMagazine.com, “Cruise opened a door to reveal a second room full of upper-level Scientologists who had been waiting to dine with the pair, at which point the cool-headed ingénue politely excused herself.”
This is disgusting in my opinion. If Tom believes in Scientology, that is great. If he wants to introduce his girlfriends to Scientology and the girlfriends are willing to learn, that is fine. However, if he is now trying to force his beliefs on his co-workers, that is just plain wrong.
