Describing Travolta and wife Kelly Preston as "the sweetest people in the world (suffering) the worst possible tragedy a parent could be forced to endure," Presley adds, "there are those certain ones that want to use this horrible tragedy as an opportunity to once again, blame and or attack Scientology. Now is NOT the time."
Actually, she doesn't seem to think any time is right for that debate.
"It is not true that Scientologist's 'Don't believe in' medical care, medicine or medical Doctors and that may have something to do with this terrible tragedy," she writes. "Just like anyone else, If one is sick, they go to the doctor, If a medication will make it better then they take it. If they don't then they are an idiot and you can't blame their religion.
"Whatever medical and or physical condition Jett had, I can tell you first hand that his parents were on a tireless, never ending quest to get and provide him with the absolute best care anyone could ever ask for and need, Medically, physically, emotionally, medicinally and spiritually."
