Ok on the heels of Jenny, we now have Charlie Sheen... Does anyone else see a trend of non-vaxing celebrities developing?

http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/thedishrag/2008/06/charlie-sheen-t.html

Will this promote/hurt or harm either cause (non-vax and/or pro-vax)? Why? How?

Personally, I agree with one of the commenters.

I don't believe Charlie was trying to make his stance public but Denise did say on television "Charlie thinks vaccinating my kids is poisoning them!".

Some Scientologists vaccinate and some do not. There are no scriptures on the subject to my knowledge:

Are there any precepts or strictures about vaccinations within Scientology?

Not as a religious principle, no, not at all. And I heard some false report about that, too. It's simply not true. Scientologists are pretty independent people, though I will say this: they tend to do a little more research, perhaps, on the effect of various medical procedures or whatever. They make their own decisions, but those aren't decisions that the church tries to influence in any way.

Funny that you bring this up - we were just talking about this last night in our bible study group of celebrities being in Scientology, which to my knowledge, the known ones are Tom Cruise and John Travolta.

I agree, it's unfortunate that their lives are not private but some tend to make things public and others avoid the spotlight and maintain their careers so in some ways it is up to them.

Googled the Tom Cruise/Brooke Shields incident and found this for you.

Human behavior interests me too, no doubt about it!

Honestly, Charlie Sheen doesn't surprise me.
