    Clips: Scientology Founder Slams Drugs That Might Have Saved Travolta's Son

    Gawker has been one of the most interesting sources of information on high profile celebrity scientologists. They were one of the only media outlets to maintain a link to Tom Cruise's utterly crazy "scientology interview."

    If you haven't seen it, you should.

    As a person who has had to battle these idiots on the medical level, I can assure you, they are nuts. They can believe in what they wish, but, when they begin playing doctor and they do, do that, they cross lines they need to not cross. JMO.

    Scientologists also will not accept you if you have ever been treated by a Psychiatrist. I did do the "purification program" it rid me of toxins.

    You know.......Scientologists aren't the only ones that do this. Anyone remember the little girl that died about a year ago because her parents (who were 7th Day Adventists) refused to allow her to have her diabetes medication?

    There are spiritual kooks everywhere.

    There have been several well documentated cases where people haven't taken needed medication do to Scientology beliefs and they have either died or killed people.

    Hey......that's just one example.....there are MANY "people of faith" that have allowed their kids and family members to become ill or even die because they believe that "faith is enough".

    Scientology isn't the only one.

    There being other religious lunatics in the world doesn't improve the standing of Scientology.

    Why are we singleling out religious kooks?--there are some quite wacky people out there who do things for totally secular reasons.
    Women took thalidomide thinking it was a perfectly fine way to treat nausea while pregnant. It wasn't.
