By now you would have picked up on the sad death of John Travolta’s son, Jett.
January 2, 2009 – NASSAU (Reuters) – The teenage son of actor John Travolta died suddenly on Friday during a family vacation in the Bahamas, according to police and the family’s lawyer.
Jett Travolta, 16, suffered a seizure at his family’s vacation home at the Old Bahama Bay resort on Grand Bahama Island, attorney Michael Ossi said.
Jett and John Travolta
And, whilst numerous high-profile blogs have used his opportunity to report on John’s alleged gay lover, I thought we could look at the role Travolta’s church of Scientology will be playing.
This, an extract from a piece written by a level 7, ex-Scientologist with 24 years of membership:
1.Ethics interviews and associated procedures. (Scientology’s “Division 1” services.)
This aspect of services would look into the unfortunate and tragic event of Jett’s death being a possible result of some kind of personal ethics breach or lack of integrity by the parents. In particular the individual parents would have separate interviews about their own role in the tragedy or how come they “pulled in” (a Scientology ethics jargon term) such an awful situation by something in their own behavior.
The Scientology celebrity ethics officer would also actively look for one or more people in the Travoltas’ circle of friends, acquaintances who might be antagonistic to or even anti-Scientology and who could have had sufficient negative influence to “cause” such a tragedy. That person would then be the target of possible disconnection (shunning), firing or lawsuit/fair game. There would be many steps possible for John and Kelly coming out of the “Ethics” handlings, and these could not be predicted here.
***It is worthy of note that the potential question of NOT giving proper or adequate medication would not be considered a Scientology ethics violation due to L.Ron Hubbard’s indoctrination to avoid such medical or psychological types of treatment. In fact, the failure to give doctor-recommended drugs or medications to Jett might factually be considered to be a laudable Scientology ethics matter.***
2.Correction interviews and procedural steps (Scientology’s “Division 5” services).
These steps, sometimes called “Review” would be services designed to address any failures of John or Kelly (and/or Jett’s caretaker, as I believe he is a Scientologist) to have properly applied relevant Scientology technologies to their son or his living situation within the family. Any strictly Scientology-dictated ways of living that are detected as to having been omitted or misapplied would have to be re-studied and drilled till they become second nature.
3.Technical sessions (“auditing”) (Scientology’s “Division 4” services.
This would be some very expensive counseling sessions and personal programs designed to remove, if possible, all the negative emotions from this awful tragedy. This can cost up to $1000 an hour. The outcome of this step is varied in its success and can take weeks or months to complete.
