Scientology Helps John Travolta Cope With Son's Death, He Says

| Filed under: John Travolta

We may give him and other followers a lotta Xenu shiz, but it works for him!

Since the death of his son Jett last year, John Travolta has found comfort in Scientology.

"It's something that has been very difficult, but I am getting a lot of help in dealing with it," said John. "My wife and I and my daughter - we're all dealing with it as well as can be expected. We lean on our church heavily and they have helped us a lot."

Of course, he wouldn't give details, but things are improving for them.

"The nooks and crannies of it are our private situation, but we're handling it," he continued. "I think you learn that the most important thing is your family and your responsibility towards them and others. We're in this as a group and all these wonderful things that we share together are not as important if we don't take care of each other.

We couldn't agree more!

    alien's always seem to help me with my problems…..dumbasses

    This news is SO OLD, I read this on another site 2 months ago.

    But anyway I find it ironic that he says this, seeing how if it weren't for that fucking bullshit cult his son wouldn't have died in the first place. I hate $cientology more than anything. Those people have A LOT of blood on their hands. Its sick.

    Here's what's going on here.
    .
    The wacked out Predatory Evil $pace Alien Mind Control CULT is using the tragedy of the loss of the Travoltas' son to promote their CULT. Despicable.
    .
    If the Travoltas had not followed their CULT's wacked out 'religious' and COMPLETELY UNQUALIFED MEDICAL ADVICE…wouldn't their son still be alive?
    .
    BTW, all the VIP treatment the Travoltas get from the CULT is not at all what the rank and file get.
    .
    The Travoltas are used as shills to bring in as many suckers as possible.
    .
    So…the Travoltas followed UNQUALIFIED CULT MEDICAL ADVICE…and their son in now dead.
    .
    The CULT starts double talking and now spins the situation to use the Travoltas' loss to appeal to other VULNERABLE people from whom it will be easy to siphon money. ANYTHING to easy the terrible pain of a serious loss.
    .
    I am truly sorry for the Travoltas' loss, but, I doubt it would have happened if they weren't in that CULT in the first place.
    .

    It's like saying that Heroin is helping the pain of the problems caused by Heroin addiction.
    .
    And…encouraging others to use Heroin.
    .
    Only the CULT is much worse.

    still very sad.



  7. 7

    They stay in that cult because its treats them like royalty and feeds their huge egos, then they turn a blind eye to the way people not as important as them to the cult are treated and down right abused…that child should have been on proper medication and this may have been prevented…

    CHRISTIAN SCIENCE HAS ALL THE ANSWERS. IF YOU WANT TO REACH YOUR POTENTIAL YOU SHOULD VISIT YOUR LOCAL READING ROOM

    Re: Oswald2001 – QUIT LYING AND GO VISIT YOUR LOCAL READING ROOM BEFORE YOU SLANDER THE CHURCH!!

    it "works" for him…voodoo works for some, heroin for others….palm reading, ouija boards, scientology, whatever delusion and denial and hope you can fabricate! anything but accept the randomness and temporariness of life. and yes, this is a very old quotation. but then, Travolta is old too…



  11. 11

    Let's hope the Scientology crowd is giving him some comfort…they ought to, considering the untold millions of dollars he's given them. Gotta buy your comfort wherever you can…lucky for him he has the millions to purchase Scientology comfort…



  12. 12

    The same faith that believed that Jett was a defective being in the first place….



  13. 13

    ummm. $cientology is why his son died in the first place, if travolta wasn't in the cult he could have provided his kid with he meds that he needed to treat his condition.
    Can't CPS get involved with families of $cientology to help protect the kids from thier moronic parents?



  14. 14

    Wow, talk about see-through. Folks, guess what, There is a 4 part series starting on Anderson Cooper tonight about the evil that is Scientology. And wouldn't ya know….they are trying to get some good press today before the proverbial sh*t hits the fan…..so Perez, tell us how much money you got for saying something nice about Scientology the day the CNN expose starts….

    Why is he so Michael Jackson white??? Me scared :(

    Scientology also helps him cope with his undescended left testicle. Whoo. Hoo.



  18. 18

    he's an egocentric idiot, just like all other members of scientology.
    it's just perferct for celebs. they think the world revolves around them, and thats what scientology is all about. whoever made up that "religion" is a genius.



  19. 19

    I'm OKAY with John and Kelly and their Scientology because except for when they tried to cultify us all with that Battlefield Earth movie. But that totally bombed, so nobody must have actually seen it. If it's helping them heal, then whatever works for them personally …

    They're not annoying like that Tom Cruise with his couch jumping and his screaming at Matt Lauer - yikes!

    That being said, I'll bet John's association with Scientology is hurting his career - it's kind of creepy! :o



  20. 20

    Too bad his church probably contributed to Jett's death as they don't support any medicine related to psychiatry. Jett had autism.

    I lost my Grandfather in a plane crash some years ago; yesterday was the anniversary. Whatever gets you through the pain (as long as it isn't harmful to you or others) go with it. BUT . . . did Scientology encourage them not to seek proper medical treatment? I've never heard that before, but if it's true, that is just BAD parenting. Oddly enough, my grandfather flew John Travolta in a private plane when Grease came out. He had no idea who Travolta was, and Travolta never let on. My grampa said he was the nicest guy and even let him fly the plane for a few minutes. Is this even the same person??



  22. 22

    weirdo..that is why your kid is not alive..scientology is not a religion it's a cult…….ET PHONE HOME………….ALIENS give me a break



  23. 23

    seriously, go look up the videos by Tory Christman… she talks about how she almost died from epilepsy because Scientology had brainwashed her into not taking any 'evil psychiatric medication' . she basically implies that what probably happened to Travolta's child is that the Scientologists restricted his access to medication and/or doctors and he died of a seizure because of it.

    Scientology pushes its members into nonsense like 'cleansing toxins with vitamins' or whatever (you can see a Tom Cruise video where he is 'cleansing' 9/11 workers with this shit). If you get modern medical help you risk being expelled from the organization, cut off from your family, or put into their labor-camp (RPF).



  24. 24

    Ditto on the Travolta's following deadly medical advice from Scientology in the first place. Poor son had to endure a lifetime of seizures w/o relief from any treatment.



  25. 25

    Sad. His son died in part because Scientology convinced him to let his autistic son go without treatment for his seizures. Travolta's "bold" move following his bad parenting was to claim he would "never" leave Scientology- likely because Scientology threatened to out Travolta and end what little career he has left. They released one picture of Travolta kissing another man before he made that statement. This sort of spinelessness is why David Miscaviage of Scientology mocks Travolta openly for being a sissy. He might have a point.



  26. 26

    And how much $$$$ did it take for his Church to "help" them?
