“Silent birth is basically just no words as much as possible. If you need to moan, if you need to cry out … of course that’s normal … But, it’s just bringing them in, in as peaceful and gentle a way as possible … L. Ron Hubbard found that the single source of aberration, of psychosomatic illnesses, stress, fears, worry, things like that, have to do with the reactive mind, and in that part of the mind is different words and commands that can come back to affect you later in your life. I’m blessed with, my kids have always been amazing, very calm, very peaceful, happy, and I absolutely know that it’s very much because of that.”
– Kelly Preston on the benefits of silent birth, as dictated by the Church of Scientology. Xenu must be very proud. But my reactive mind has a lot of issues with this birthing practice.

For as long as John Travolta has been a Scientologist, the media has been making fun of him. But the jokes grew bitter six months ago when Travolta’s only son, Jett, died.

This devastating blow no doubt changed how the Travoltas think about the church. Rick Ross, an author and lecturer on Scientology told The Daily Mail that, “There have been strong rumors coming out of Scientology that John Travolta is disappointed that the religion was not able to help his son more … It’s led him to question his faith.” Keep reading »
