Scientology contro Jenna Miscavige: Nessuna fede può soddisfare le esigenze di tutti e Jenna Miscavige, è un’apostata che racconta falsità.
March, 18, 2013
THE Church of Scientology has fired a withering attack on the niece of the church’s leader, after she wrote a book describing how she was brainwashed by the Church and forcibly estranged from her family.
Jenna Miscavige Hill, whose uncle David Miscavige runs the church and is one of Tom Cruise’s closest friends, has told about growing up with the church in My Secret Life Inside Scientology.
The Church’s international spokeswoman, Karin Pouw, has slammed her claims as “false” and “apostate behaviour”, as well as an attempt to “exploit Mr Miscavige’s name”, AFP reports.
But Ms Miscavige Hill’s book contains a number of disturbing allegations, including:
- CHILDREN being forced to participate in manual labour – dragging giant rocks around in the sun for a paltry $45 wage
- WHEN she turned 13, she had to detail every sexual experience she had ever had to the Church
- SHE was prevented from seeing her parents from a young age
- SHE had to sign a billion year contract of servitude to Scientology’s elite ‘Sea Org’ group
- EACH class at school ended with three cheers to L Ron Hubbard
Ms Pouw told AFP the Church does not engage in any activities that mistreat children, neglect them or force them to engage in manual labour. “The Church follows all laws with respect to children,” she said.
“Those who decide a religious order isn’t for them are free to move on with their lives, as Ms Hill did.
“Every religion has its detractors, there is no faith that can satisfy everyone’s spiritual needs,” she said.
Ms Miscavige Hill’s book is only one in a series of bombshell exposes released about the Church in recent months.
Journalist Lawrence Wright released the results of his long-running investigation into the secretive Church’s activities in Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood and the Prison of Belief.
The book made several allegations about the Church, arising from interviews with former prominent members of the Church.
UK publishers who had planned to bring their book to the shelves changed their minds over fears of legal retribution from the Church of Scientology.
The Church of Scientology has published a website strenuously denying Mr Wright’s allegations, describing his book as “so ludicrous it belongs in a supermarket tabloid”.
In another book released late February, Inside My Time with Narconon and Scientology, a former member of the Church for more than 12 years, Lucas Catton, alleges the Church destroyed his relationships with his family.
“Revisionist histories are typical of apostate (behaviour) and tabloid tales should always be taken with an enormous grain of salt,” Ms Pouw said.
