More Horrifying Details of the TomKitten's "Birth"

Page Six provided some more gruesome information regarding the Scientologist shenanigans surrounding the so-called birth of stunt baby Suri Cruise today, via the UK Sun:
Cruise stroked Holmes' face and held her hand to help her stay silent during the birth of their daughter, in accordance with Scientology guidelines, The Sun said. Holmes did have a pain-killing epidermal shot to help stifle her moans.

And when it comes to feeding, science-fiction writer and Church of Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard recommends a baby formula made of barley water, milk and corn syrup.

But "it is up to the parents as to use," Scientology Celebrity Center vice president Greg LaClaire says in the upcoming issue of People magazine.

He also said there is a "naming ceremony" where "parents and godparents pledge to give good care while at the same time providing the child an opportunity to grow and choose [its] own path in life. The child is welcomed by the congregation." The religion also advocates being relatively lenient on kids.

Its writings on child raising state that anything given to a child is his and thus if a child rips his clothes or breaks her toy, it doesn't matter.

"Children are not dogs," reads one tract. "The sweetness and love of a child is preserved only so long as he can exert his own self-determinism."

Suri may be able to determine her own career as well, and could become a child actress at a tender age. Hubbard noted that children should be allowed to work as soon as possible.

"Forbidding children to work, and particularly forbidding teenagers to earn their own money, creates a family difficulty," he wrote.

Cruise was ordered by Scientology elders to hand over notes and video recordings of the birth to prove it was silent, The Sun reported.

OK, first of all, if Tom Cruise was trying to keep me calm and silent, the last thing I would let him do is stroke my face, because that would start me screaming and shrieking and flinging things about the room.

And how scary is it that video "proof" of the silent birth had to be sent to the creepy Scientology elders? AAAAAAAAAAAAH!
