Scientology Head David Miscavige is a Frightening Man

Posted By on Wed, Feb 9, 2011 at 9:00 AM

The New Yorker's massive article about Oscar winning screenwriter Paul Haggis and his association with Scientology is a fascinating read, pulling together a lot of the revelations about the organization that have been revealed over the last few years. Scientology takes quite a beating in the article, but the most damaging aspects are focused on David Miscavige, the leader of the "church" and Tom Cruise BFF, who apparently randomly beats up his underlings, subjects them to cruel games of fate, and might have made his wife disappear:

Miscavige’s official title is chairman of the board of the Religious Technology Center, but he dominates the entire organization. His word is absolute, and he imposes his will even on some of the people closest to him. According to Rinder and Brousseau, in June, 2006, while Miscavige was away from the Gold Base, his wife, Shelly, filled several job vacancies without her husband’s permission. Soon afterward, she disappeared. Her current status is unknown. Tommy Davis told me, “I definitely know where she is,” but he won’t disclose where that is.
