    Lisa Marie Presley, a follower of the religion, defended Scientology in a blog while expressing condolences over Jett's death. "I am writing this because I have noticed that for the most part, people and the media have been very sympathetic and respectful, but there are those certain ones that want to use this horrible tragedy as an opportunity to once again, blame and-or attack Scientology."

    She called the belief that scientologists don't allow medical care "garbage" and said Travolta and his wife were on a "tireless, never ending quest to get and provide him (Jett) with the absolute best care anyone could ever ask for and need."

    Travolta was introduced to Scientology by actress Joan Prather in 1975,

    "A Scientology funeral is likely to emphasize the movement of the thetan from attachment to this body to attachment to another body," Kent added. "The hope is that the thetan will come back in better times, with a better body, with a better spiritual nature."

    Kent said he would expect Tom Cruise, Cruise's wife Katie Holmes and other members of Hollywood's elite Scientology contingent to attend. After the funeral, it's likely the organization will ask Travolta, his family and Jett's caretakers to undergo evaluations to banish any ill feelings about the tragedy. "

    Regardless of the cause, Travolta's attorney Ossi said that the family is now grieving. He added that the incident "is the worst pain any parent can experience, the loss of child."


    In a statement to ABC News, the Church of Scientology responded to critics who claim it does not promote medical treatment.

    "Scientologists seek conventional medical treatment for medical conditions," the church said in a statement. "Scientologists use prescription drugs when physically ill and also rely on the advice and treatment of medical doctors. The Church does not involve itself in the diagnosis or classification of any medical condition."

    ABC News' Dan Childs, Radha Chitale, Eileen Murphy, Lauren Cox and Kirk Fernandes contributed to this report.

    Except according to Scientology doctrine there aren't any medical conditions. Instead, medical afflications are all psychosomatic, caused by the invisible bodies of dead aliens. I guess ABC forget to include that. 0/10
