Is anyone else bothered by the fact that Travolta is flying in more and more Scientologists to Haiti? He brought four tons of ready-to-eat military rations and medical supplies along with “a team including doctors and Scientology ministers.” These "healers" are actually volunteers for the cult/religion who claim to use a process called ‘assist’ to reconnect the nervous system. Uh....yeahhhh. Read the article and it may scare you. When a volunteer claimed to have saved a man's leg, one American doctor at the hospital commented sarcastically, “I didn’t know touching could heal gangrene.”
I have been a little critical of Travolta before as there has been questions whether he let his late son actively suffer from seizures without the proper medication. Should these same Scientologists be allowed to run around with their yellow shirts promoting their cult/religion just because Mr. Travolta gave tons of food, etc? That being said, I did find another report showing that at least they are helping:
New York radiologist Alan Greenfield, however, spoke in glowing terms about the new volunteers, especially after the Scientologists flew in an X-ray machine that has enabled him to examine desperate patients with crushed limbs and broken bones. The Church "has been fabulous with logistics, they've been very supportive," he told AFP. "If doctors need water, they get water, if someone needs a blood pressure pump, they find one and bring it."
