Does John Travolta believe his baby is the reincarnation of his dead son? — Daily Mail (UK)
Type: Press
Author(s): Richard Price

Sunrise in the humidity of deepest Florida, a hazy mist cloaking the ground as the coolness of the night turns to cloying heat, and a lone individual trudges along an airport runway in a pristine tracksuit. He won't be breaking any land speed records - in fact this version of running barely qualifies as a brisk trot - but at 56 John Travolta is no spring chicken. Consider, however, that his only exercise until recently was lifting double cheeseburgers to his ...

The renowned mental health expert has joined psychiatry boss Louise Newman and the Brain and Mind Institute's Ian Hickie in urging senators to vote for an inquiry. The Senate is expected to ...

Travolta's Scientology turning point? — The Daily Beast
Type: Press
Author(s): Kim Masters
Source: The Daily Beast
The actor’s public acknowledgement that his son, who died in January, was autistic has former Scientologists convinced that he will leave the church—which they say has little tolerance for chronic conditions. When John Travolta took the witness stand last week and testified that his late son, Jett, was autistic, it came as a grim relief to some former Scientologists. “Wasn’t that amazing?” said a fallen-away church member after Travolta appeared in an extortion case that followed the death of his 16-year-old ...

John Travolta, defying Scientology, acknowledged son's autism — Gawker
Type: Blog
Author(s): John Cook
Source: Gawker
According to a Bahamian police report taken in February after his son Jett's death last year, Travolta acknowledged in his own words that "Jett suffered from a seizure disorder and was autistic." That's a big no-no in Scientology. The report was obtained by the National Enquirer. Travolta's use of the term "autistic" seems to be a break from church doctrine, which teaches that pyschiatric diagnoses are fake ailments invented by Nazi psychiatrists so they can give people drugs to keep them ...

What do declining educational standards, Nazism, the Columbine shootings, 9/11 and the death of Kurt Cobain have in common?

Organized by the innocuous-sounding Citizens’ Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), “Psychology: Industry of Death” is a travelling exhibit that spent four days in the open hall of the university library, arousing curiosity, controversy and at least one ...

Christman left after suffering epileptic fits, culminating in a seizure which caused her to fall in the bath, knocking ...
