The Church of Scientology just doesn't get it, do they? Right now, John Travolta and his family, along with their alleged "religion", is under fire due to the supposed beliefs they had and alleged treatment or lack of treatment for Jett. So you would think now might be a good time for the "Church" to zip it up.
Not so fast. Tommy Davis had to open up his fat piehole and state "Scientologists seek conventional medical treatment for medical conditions. Scientologists use prescription drugs when physically ill and also rely on the advice and treatment of medical doctors. The church does not involve itself in the diagnosis or classification of any medical condition."
This is just ridiculous. The "Church"'s poster boy of crazy, Tom Cruise, showed his true, unmedicated self on Matt Lauer so that is a good assumption that Scientologists are dissuaded from taking prescription medication. And good old Tom also felt the need to inform all of America that chemical imbalances don't exist and vitamins and exercise were the answer - -sounds like a diagnosis and course of treatment to me. Never mind the many former members of the Church of Scientology who have told the same tales of being forced off medications, everything from epilepsy meds to insulin to even aspirin. Look at Katie Holmes - - she's in dire need of some Abreva. Guess that's not allowed either.
Naturally, Tommy Davis was asked about Tom Cruise's rantings to Matt Lauer about anti-depressants and Davis replied "That centered around a psychological diagnosis, not a medical diagnosis, there's a distinction."
This guy really isn't sharp, is he? He does realize that psychiatrists are medical doctors, correct? And persons diagnosed with things like ADD or ADHD are done so with a medical diagnosis?
Yes, Tommy Davis is lying through his teeth. But of course, to a Scientologist it's merely an "acceptable truth". With the amount of manure this cult is shoveling, they really should go into the farming business.
UPDATE: Tommy Davis' mother, actress Anne Archer, made the following statement: "John and Kelly never discussed his physical condition with me. I observed that he was significantly mentally handicapped. ... John always communicated to him as if Jett could completely understand him. ... It was a kind of sweet exchange, where he was just happy with anything that Jett offered. Anything."
Whoa. Anne Archer, mother of possible next man in line Tommy Davis, admitting publicly that Jett was significantly mentally handicapped? Knowing the Church of Scientology and their denial of anything that would be considered a "defect", this is mind blowing. I'm sure more will follow in the upcoming days.
