John Travolta to leave Scientology?
Staff Reporter
Sydney Morning Herald
July 28, 2009

According to the gossip blog Gatecrasher, John Travolta is rumoured to be thinking of leaving Scientology after his faith was shaken by the death of his son Jett.

It's believed that Scientology's failure to help Jett may have led Travolta to question his faith. Travolta's son was thought to have suffered from autism. Scientology is opposed to psychiatry and counsels the use of vitamins to combat the disability. The diet-based treatment's lack of success is said to underlie Travolta's disillusionment with his long-held faith.

The Herald-Sun reports that Travolta wishes to leave the church but fears the possibility of personal revelations too much to officially break with it. Travolta has been a member of the controversial church for 34 years.

Meanwhile, Entertainment Weekly quotes John Travolta's spokesperson today as saying the actor is a Scientologist "now and forever".
