John Travolta: Haiti Scientology Mission
John Travolta has flown his own Boeing 707 jet to Haiti. The jet carried medical supplies and doctors, as well as a crew of Scientologists. to perform "healing". John Travolta's wife, Kelly Preston, accompanied him on the journey. I'm sure the his intentions are good, but this smacks of opportunism: carving out another territory for Scientology using the dubious opportunity presented by a huge disaster. (It's called "Casualty Contact", and the NYPD was having none of it after 9/11)
The only problem is that Haiti needs as many doctors as possible, and let's face it: Scientologist healers are not doctors.
"When you get a sudden shock to a part of your body the energy gets stuck, so we re-establish communication within the body by touching people through their clothes, and asking people to feel the touch."
The news agency said that an American doctor at the hospital who asked not to be identified commented sarcastically, “I didn’t know touching could heal gangrene.”
