Google “SCIENTOLOGY RELATED SUICIDES and MURDERS” and you will find many articles on the dangers of this anti-psychiatry, anti-medication cult.
Modern psychiatry has truly miraculous, remarkably safe, life-saving medications and therapies to assist patients with all kinds of mental disorders, especially depression and suicidal thinking. Yet Tom Cruise and John Travolta constantly shove their dangerous propaganda on us.
Scientology’s own very stressful and toxic training further aggravates this by the “number of individuals [who] go crazy when exposed to the Hubbard Tech even absent malicious intent on the part of the persons applying the Tech. For example, [Andre Tabayoyon] saw John Colletto get psychotic after he was exposed to the OT III level (Operating the tan level III) materials. He got a pistol. In my presence, he shot his wife in the head. She died instantly. Then John ran a short distance before turning the pistol on himself and committing suicide. Moreover, John Travolta’s auditor told me of two occasions … John Travolta went into deep depression after auditing and therefore suffered a psychotic break.”
“I personally observed a number of other Scientologists go crazy and commit suicide as a result of the auditing processes…The results of Scientology’s hatred of medicine and psychiatry has lead to numerous deaths. The second half of this list describes five of those deaths.”
(Ref:An extract from an affidavit by Andre Tabayoyon)
Even without the trauma of this “training,” depression is a very common disorder in which suicidal ideas often occur. How many others that could have been treated and very easily saved have died unnecessarily because of this dangerous cult?
Regarding John Travolta and Kelly Preston’s son, “Jett had been having seizures on an average of every four days, until he started taking Depakote… the drug initially worked, reducing the frequency to approximately once every three weeks…Jett took Depokate for ‘several years,’ but it eventually lost its effectiveness, according to Ossi and McDermott.” They say “it began to cause serious physical damage” including “damage to Jett’s liver. And Jett went back to having at least one seizure every four days. So Travolta and Preston, after consulting neurosurgeons, stopped administering the drug.” (Ref:TMZ, Huffington Post, Access Hollywood, Us, People: 02/02/09, Updated: 05/25/11)
Incredible!!! Neurologists are usually the specialists that treat seizure disorders, unless they are intractable in which case neurosurgery can be very effective. But seizures are brain disorders and we know how Scientologists reject treatment of brain disorders. When Jett allegedly died from a seizure, how come no one challenged them as to why he was not on seizure medications? How come there was no indication of any blood levels of seizure meds on his autopsy?
With proper treatment it’s very likely that Jett Travolta would still be alive. Jehovah’s Witnesses are not allowed to let their children die for their religious beliefs. Why are Scientology celebrities allowed to let their children die without treatment when other citizens are not?
Scientology is believed to have played a strong role in the Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes divorce. She moved to New York where Scientology does not have the support it has in LA and after only a couple of weeks the divorce was finalized. The Scientologists certainly did not want a public divorce settlement hearing so everyone could learn the truth.
After Katie had their daughter, did she really want her to be raised with the potentially appalling beliefs of the Scientologists? Obviously not, as she just rejoined the Catholic Church about a week after her divorce was finalized and registered Suri in a Catholic School.
So Scientology is a very dangerous cult that can have a devastating effect on our relationships, especially marriage and family, our health and even our lives.
