The wife of a former senior executive of the Church of Scientology has filed a lawsuit against the cult’s controlling entities, cult leader David Miscavige, and two men believed to be working on behalf of the ‘church’ in an effort to stop the cult from its lengthy harassment campaign against her and her husband.

Incidentally, if you do decide to hand over your money and your mind, here’s a buyer beware: you may also be forced to lose your family and friends. Here is how Miscavige’s niece described that horrendous side of Scientology.

As for David Miscavige, see The Truth Rundown. In that series of special reports the St. Peterburg Times highlights the alleged abusive behavior of current Scientology leader David Miscavige, as well as other criticism leveled at Scientology by a number of high-level defectors.

More Church of Scientology defectors come forward with accounts of abuse

Scientology abuses 11 more defectors from the Church of Scientology have provided accounts of physical or mental abuse by Scientology leader David Miscavige.

The cult — known for its hate- and harassment activities, including character assassination — has a hypocritical response. Yet it cannot get around the fact that its founder codified unethical behavior toward those who criticize Scientology.

More evidence that the cult’s glossy ads hide a stark truth: that of a destructive cult in decline.
