Lisa Marie Presley, a Scientologist, blogs against those who are blaming scientology for the death of John Travolta’s son, Jett:

“It is not true that Scientologist’s ‘Don’t believe in’ medical care, medicine or medical Doctors and that may have something to do with this terrible tragedy. Just like anyone else, If one is sick , they go to the doctor, If a medication will make it better then they take it. If they don’t then they are an idiot and you can’t blame their religion…Whatever medical and or physical condition Jett had, I can tell you first hand that his parents were on a tireless, never ending quest to get and provide him with the absolute best care anyone could ever ask for and need, Medically, physically, emotionally, medicinally and spiritually.”

Later today we’re posting an interview from a Scientology church representative saying they’ve got no problem with traditional medical care — just with psychiatric drugs.
