Anti-Scientologists Protest Katie Holmes' Opening Night

See, now this just makes me feel bad for Katie Holmes.

As Katie prepared for her opening night on Broadway, a group of masked, anti-Scientology demonstrators staged a protest outside the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre in New York City, where Kate is starring in All My Sons. The group, Anonymous, consisted of about 20 people, who shouted, "We are not boycotting Katie, we are not boycotting the play, we are protesting Scientology. It is evil. Scientology kills people. It follows you home at night. It is perverted...

Apparently this was a planned event, as organizers of the group had told weeks ago, "We are going to be there not only in protest of The Church of Scientology. We would love to see Katie Holmes get away from this evil cult before it's to late."

What bugs me about this is that it was Kate's opening night on Broadway -- she'll never have that first time again -- and it has to be overshadowed by these people. Couldn't they have waited until tonight to do it? At least let her get all of her nerves out.

I may have to show up outside the theater tonight with my own "We're Not Gonna Protest!" sign.
