The Scientologists need to just shut their mouths and leave the Travoltas alone.
After perhaps the worst year of their lives, John Travolta and Kelly Preston have finally been blessed with a little miracle - a new baby!
Sadly, the happy news is being marred by some ridiculous claims.
Apparently, the church teaches its followers that a spirit has lived before and will live again after death in another body. Then, whose to say that Jett's spirit will not pass into the body of this newborn child.
Rational people, that's who!
But still, there are some Scientology experts that suggest that this might have been the reason John and Kelly conceived. Artist Michael Pattinson quit Scientology in 1997 after 24 years of devote following and explains:
"The whole ethos of Scientology is that we come back. With Sea Org [the sect's upper echelon], they ask members to sign billion-year contracts. Their motto is 'We Come Back.' It makes sense that the Travoltas would have another baby after losing Jett."
Of course, looking to hold off anymore negative press about their religion, a spokesperson for the sect made a statement clarifying their beliefs, saying:
"We believe that when people pass away, the spirit leaves the body and moves to another body right away. I wouldn't want to make any comment on the Travoltas and the passing of their son, but for someone to suggest such a thing sounds pretty reprehensible to me."
Sounds about the same to us!
These people have been through enough without having to deal with this kind of stoopidity. Seriously, just leave them alone!
