The apple couldn’t fall farther from the tree…
Scientology remains one of the most confounding and secretive religions in the world.
Since its inception in 1954, Scientology has often drawn international attention, from its high-profile members, to its under-publicized controversies and alleged scandals, to certain public officials and governments condemning it as a dangerous sect.
Founded by science fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard, Scientology is now headed by David Miscavige, the charismatic yet enigmatic figure titled the Chairman of the Board of the Religious Technology Center. Though Miscavige’s family members such as his wife and niece have found their way into national headlines before, he’s now dealing with yet another relative who’s risking it all to out Scientology as a fraud.
A new book by one of David’s closest relatives is making headlines as Scientologists desperately try to halt its publication.
