Skeptic Magazine on Jett Travolta
Ex high ranking Scientologist of 22 years, John Duignan, told The Sun that Jett Travolta might have fallen victim to Scientology’s questionable beliefs relating to medicine. He confirmed that Scientology denies the existence of psychiatric and mental health problems.
Duignan explains, “Much of the hold that the Church of Scientology has on its followers is the vehement hatred, horror and terror it inculcates in them towards the subject and professions of psychology, psychiatry
and psychiatric drugs. Since the release of “Dianetics” in 1950, Hubbard had condemned these subjects. He claimed to be the sole agent of the solution to all mental illness, in any form.”
Tory Christman, a former Scientologist who was involved with the group for 30 years, told the Times Online,
UK that there may be numerous parishioners of Scientology suffering from untreated mental and neurological
conditions, but they refuse to receive proper treatment. Even Joey Travolta, younger brother of John, believed Jett was autistic and allegedly argued with his brother over the treatment of his son.
