Is John Travolta through with Scientology? The Hollywood rumor mill is running wild, and there is still no actual evidence other than a report of John Travolta, grief stricken, driving his golf cart in the wee hours of the night.
There has been no actual statement from the family and other than the golf cart reports and the spotting of a bloated Travolta eating junk food. We haven’t heard a word from the family. Still, speculation runs wild. The main rumor is that a distraught Mr.Travolta may be leaving the church based on Scientology’s denialÂ of autism and mental illness. Travolta’s dead son, Jett, was taken off his anti-seizure medication just prior to his death and Scientology refuses to acknowledge autism as an actual illness. In fact, Scientology considers all mental illness to be psychosomatic and is forcefully against any kind of medication for mental illness. One could understand how this could cause a grieving parent to reconsider the teachings of a church that in this case, could quite possibly have done more harm than good.
If indeed John is considering leaving the church, he will have to face the vicious backlash that is known to be standard operating procedure of Scientology. All members of the church go through continual auditing. Auditing is Scientology’s version of confession, and unlike other churches who consider confession to be private exchange between a priest and a God and the confessor, Scientology keeps detailed files on the confessions of the people being audited so that they may use that information against the person to rope them in should they attempt to leave the church.
I will update if any new information comes out and until then a site has been set up so that we can show our support to Mr. Travolta should he decide to leave the church. I for one wish him and his family the best and stand by him should he choose to leave. You can show your virtual support by clicking on the link below.
