Lisa Marie: Stop Attacking Scientology

Elvis' only child took to her MySpace blog to say that the death of Jett Travolta is not an excuse for the media to attack her religion in an entry titled, "Now is Not The Time." She writes:

I wished I could be writing you under happier circumstances but I cannot because two of my very good friends (John and Kelly Travolta), the sweetest people in the world, have just encountered the worst possible tragedy a parent could be forced to endure, the death of their son Jett. My heart is crying and bleeding for them. I personally would not have it in me to bury my own child. I am writing this because I have noticed that for the most part, people and the media have been very sympathetic and respectful, but there are those certain ones that want to use this horrible tragedy as an opportunity to, once again, blame and or attack Scientology. Folks, as popular as it has been to discriminate and ridicule Scientology and Scientologists in the recent past, now is NOT the time.

I realize that there is a lot of misinformation out there about the subject which has caused a lot of stone throwing, but we are not still in the dark ages and it is still an Unconstitutional Injustice to partake in and encourage such condemnation.

Among most of the crazy made-up garbage that goes around about it, it is not true that Scientologists "don't believe in" medical care, medicine or medical doctors and that may have something to do with this terrible tragedy.

Just like anyone else, if one is sick, they go to the doctor. If a medication will make it better, then they take it.

If they don't, then they are an idiot and you can't blame their religion.

Whatever medical and or physical condition Jett had, I can tell you firsthand that his parents were on a tireless, never-ending quest to get and provide him with the absolute best care anyone could ever ask for and need -- medically, physically, emotionally, medicinally and spiritually.

I am not writing this to preach my beliefs, I am here to protect my friends. To the few of you out there that this may apply to, let's not use the tragic death of a child to facilitate your insatiable need to attack and destroy Scientology, shall we? John and Kelly have done nothing but spend their lives and their time helping others, making people happy and making people's lives better.

Please let this family grieve in peace.


PS, I am so sorry it has been such a long time since I have written. I have just been soaking up the love and the happiness that these two little babies have brought us. More on that soon.......:) Thank you so much for all of your well wishes. I love and miss you very much. I'll be in touch.

Following any religion you want, but be it known to you that there are no salvation in any other name under heaven than the name Jesus Christ.
Act 4:10 Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole.
Act 4:11 This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner.
Act 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

Is it appropriate for Momlogic to basically lift content from another person’s blog to drive traffic to your own advertiser-sponsored Web site? I think this could legitimately be considered inappropriate use or even plagiarism, even though it is credited. Just a thought. The content should be taken down and you can then link back to the content on her post.

Oh for Pete’s sake! Both of you lighten up on all this. We do not all follow the same religion or even interpret things the same, so you can quote the Bible all you want, but it is still your interpretation that you are peddling. We can all read the same verse and get numerous meanings out of it.
And you with the blog junk, are you the internet police? Get a life. I think Lisa Marie would be happy if everyone read this and laid off blaming Scientology for everything under the sun!

Scientologists do treat medical conditions, if they believe those medical conditions exist. They do not believe that autism exists, or that post-partum depression exists, or that chemical imbalances exist (diabetes is a chemical imbalance), and this is hardly the time to be defending Scientology, is it?
