Willis wants kids kept away from Kabbalah

Bruce Willis is an understanding ex-husband - even going so far as to attend ex-wife Demi Moore's recent marriage to Ashton Kutcher. But he draws the line at drawing his kids into Kabbalah - forbidding her from bringing their kids to the Kabbalah Centre - perhaps the real reason that the marriage didn't take place there.

Although Kabbalah has roots going back centuries, it has become a trendy religion amongst celebrities trying to show people just how "deep" they are underneath all the glitz and glamour with recent adherents such as Madonna and wannabe-Kabbalist Britney Spears. But I put it into the same realm as Scientology which has gained so much recent press because of celebrity followers such as Tom Cruise and John Travolta.

I don't know much about either "religion," but neither has received widespread acceptance anywhere outside of show business and that should be warning enough for normal folks to stay away from it. It's hard for me to believe that any worthwhile religion is the exclusive territory of the idle rich with their notoriously shallow "values." Both strike me as simply the "in" thing to do that will eventually find themselves alongside the hula hoop and the pet rock as momentary trends that lacked any lasting intrinsic value.

Good for Bruce for putting his foot down and preventing his kids from being swept up in it...
