I guess you never learned that "If you cannot say something nice, dont say anything at all." I hope you never have to experience the tragedy of losing a loved one.

Hopefully this will begin to shed some light on the cult of Scientology and their wacky medical practices.

I thought about that too... I had a friend that joined that cult after his mom died. He was only 19 years old. His mother left him quite a bit of money. He was out of money a year later, having spent it all at the 'church' getting all sorts of 'treatments'. I feel bad for the Travolta Family, however, I know how destructive the church is...

I don't know how people can be so cruel when it comes to other's choices. Whether Scientology is a cult or not, at least some are seeking something higher than oneself. Any idiot should know that life is more than our "minute" experience here. What are we going to say when we pass out of this life and face Jesus? I send my love to the Travolta's no matter what they belong to.

Whoever the boy was that spent his inheritance was not because of any situation. He was not mature enough to manage his resources, which has nothing to do with age or the church. Many adults are no different. They drink, play the lottery, lavish clothes, etc. What do you spend your money on?

WHAT DO YOU EXPECT FROM A FAMILY WHO ARE OUT OF SHAPE, SMOKE CIGARETTE, NO EXERCISE,AND SITTING AROUND WAITING FOR A MIRACLE. LISTEN TO THE DOCTORS ADVICE: EAT HEALTHY FOOD AND EXERCISE DAILY, STAY AWAY FROM SMOKERS

Well, here a former $cientologist who has seizures, and FOUGHT the church for years to stay on her anti-seizure meds without harassment. They got her to discontinue meds at one time, and she had a grand mal in the bathtub, fell and bashed out her front teeth...

This news is heartbreaking, not just because it involves someone I have enjoyed watching over the years, but it ws a child. No parent should ever have to bury a child. I am saddened and can not imagine what the family must be going through. I hope that regardless what the autopsy shows that they will be able to come to terms with his death. I hate to think that they witheld treatment due to religion, that would be a terrible cross to bear. The seizures could have caused the physical limits he faced,but an autopsy should confirm if his brain showed signs of autism. I dont expect them to release that, but I have to think the parents would be asking even if they have been taught it does not exist. It has to be going through their heads... May they find peace and strength. RIP Jett.
