Why Minty can never be a Scientologist. (Not a song...yet)

Tom Cruise and Kate-don't-call-me-Katie Holmes had a baby girl yesterday. I understand differences of opinion based on spiritual beliefs however, this whole Scientology "silent birth" thing makes my ovaries hurt.

"Maintain silence in the presence of birth to save both the sanity of the mother and the child and safeguard the home to which they will go. And the maintaining of silence does not mean a volley of 'Sh's', for those make stammerers." ~ L. Ron Hubbard (Founder of Scientology)

During my 16+ hour labor, I had a volley of 'Sh's' but there were a few more letters that followed.

This man is crazy. Makes me want to not see any of his movies again. I respect his (and Katie Holmes) religious wishes, I mean if that's what they believe in then that's what they believe in. I do not like it when he imposes it on others. What with the whole denying post partum depression thing to weird antics on oprah's couch to what not. Apparently silent birth as per scientology involves minimum converation amongst the people who are present including the doctor. But if the mother wants to talk (or scream) she can. If she is forced not to then how good can it be for her or for the baby?

P.S. To answer your previous question - No easy access to any of the good stuff. Easy access to the pollen yes. Hence the Zyrtec drowsiness. I matched in NY. Didn't apply in Chicago or anywhere outside the East coast secondary to fiance being in the tristate area.

And another creepy thing was that Wierdo Cruise got an adult pacifier made for Kate to help her to stay silent...

I had a c-section but can say with great certainty that the only way I would have a silent birth would be if knocked me put with drugs!!!

hey wait a minute - this is not really all that crazier than snipping off a bit of genitalia at birth or some or the other tonsurings etc etc. is poor tom c getting kicked in the face just cos his weird religious practices havent received millenia of reverence
(or reverence of millenia)? and lets be fair: he's not that weird: he's NOT, as jon stewart stressed the other day, going to eat the placenta!!
