WINTERBLE INTERVIEWS JENNA HILL MISCAVIGE

****
"My Secret life Inside Scientology And My Harrowing Escape"
****


Brett Winterble




XM RADIO’s BRETT WINTERBLE intervied JENNA HILL MISCAVIGE; the niece of Scientology-leader DAVID MISCAVIGE, on her thoughts of having left the Church of Scientology in 2008, as portrayed in her new book “My Secret life Inside Scientology And My Harrowing Escape (Morrow).” Winterble asks her about her uncle in her early days, asking what he was like, “He popped up every so often, brought presents, but the people around him were always very afraid of him. I heard stories of him yelling and beating people.”

Winterble also comments that many aspects of Scientology have an almost militaristic-quality to them. “L. Ron Hubbard was in the Navy and so many of his rules went that route.” Jenna met her husband in the Church and left together in 2008. Winterble asked if there had been any retaliation from the church for their exit. “In the beginning we were followed and they met with my husband’s parents to try to convince them we had joined some sort of terrorist group. They finally gave up and stopped.”


Winterble comments on the public’s ongoing fascination with many of Scientology’s celebrity members, like Tom Cruise and John Travolta. “What most people don’t realize is that the celebrity sect of the Church is very different. There’s a beautiful church, secret entrance, but very different. The Church targets celebrities because everyone follows them.”

EXPERTS ON SCIENTOLOGY DRUG TREATMENT

Tom Cruise




Scientology is facing several crises including flagging membership, internal riffs, ruthless Internet exposure, and whole new levels of mainstream awareness and ridicule because of the Cruise / Holmes divorce coupled with the release of the upcoming movie about the church that is receiving Oscar buzz.



Yet these problems pale in comparison to the latest controversy that the church is facing. Scientology’s drug treatment program, Narconon is now under heavy fire for four recent deaths at its flagship facility in Oklahoma and is under investigation. Additionally the program is mired in legal woes in Michigan and Georgia.



Last night, a report by Rock Center's Harry Smith on NBC blew the lid on the goings on at the bizarre drug rehab, where patients are schooled in the Scientology way combined with unconventional detox methods rather than getting counseling for their actual drug problems.



EXPERT COMMENTARY BY BEN LEVENSON



“The field must move towards standardized treatment protocols that are founded in the medical, clinical and spiritual sciences. Any program that does not offer all three is myopic and failing to competently treat,” responds Ben Levenson, the founder of Origins Recovery Centers.



Levenson adds, “Detoxing can be fatal and patients must be medically managed. We have excellent, evidence-based medical protocols to not only make detox safe but also as comfortable as possible.”

TOM CRUISE VIDEO WAS GOOD PUBLICITY

The controversial video of Tom Cruise singing the praises of Scientology were a good publicity stunt for the controversial religion, church elders have confirmed. Footage of an energized Cruise promoting the religion found its way onto the Internet last week, prompting an outpouring of criticism aimed at the star. But Scientology bosses insist the star’s bizarre monologues, in which he referred to the faith as "a blast" and saluted a statue of founder L. Ron Hubbard boosted the church’s profile. A spokesperson tells PageSix,com, "Having presented these selective and out of context excerpts with the intent of creating both controversy and ridicule resulted in people searching for Church of Scientology websites."The clip on the Internet was nine minutes long. It was edited to make Tom look really crazy." Last week, actress and fellow Scientologist, Kirstie Alley, came to Cruise’s defence, claiming the video was never meant to be seen by the general public. She said, "Tom was using words meant for a Scientology audience. On the web, the video is taken out of context."It’s like a rabbi addressing a Christian church, speaking in Hebrew. No one would understand him." You can watch the video. Click here.

TOM CRUISE SCIENTOLOGY AFTER GAWKER

Hollywood Star Tom Cruise


Legal letters to Gawker

Gawkers reply


The notoriously litigious Tom Cruise's cult Scientology, is seeking to stop website Gawker.com from showing a video of the alleged second in command, Tom Cruise promoting the so-called religion. The publication of Andrew Morton's biography of Tom Cruise, which claims he is the second most powerful person in the cult, has seemed to sent the spacemen flying for cover. What do they have to hide? One has to only ask people that knew Cruise from the New York City's Limelight nightclub in the 80s. Problem is they are so scared of being sued, they have refused untold amounts of money over the years from tabloids seeking the truth. To check out Gawkers ground breaking story and video,

SCIENTOLOGY LEADERS DEFEND TOM CRUISE

Tom Cruise

Scientology leaders are getting ready for battle and have prepared a seven-page statement damning Princess Diana biographer Andrew Morton's new expose on church member Tom Cruise.The British writers new book, Tom Cruise: An Unauthorized Biography, hits bookstores across America on today and features wild claims about the movie star’s personal life, his marriages to Nicole Kidman and Katie Holmes and his Scientology beliefs.Church leaders are determined to dismiss the book, by revealing Morton didn’t interview anyone close to Cruise or even any of the directors the actor has worked with while researching what they call a "bigoted, defamatory assault replete with lies." Morton accepts he didn’t interview the major people in Cruise’s life, but insists he did try.The author says, "Most people in Hollywood are scared of talking publicly and candidly about Tom Cruise." Morton also defends himself against the Scientology leaders’ new accusations that his Cruise biography won’t be released in the writer’s native Britain because publishers there rejected the project.Morton insists the book will not hit shelves there because libel laws in the U.K. favor plaintiffs far more than they do in America and other parts of the world.

WILL SMITH ON SCIENTOLOGY CHURCH

Will Smith

Will Smith has distanced himself from Scientology.The 'I Am Legend' star and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith were introduced to the bizarre sci-fi cult by friend Tom Cruise, but Will has chosen not to become a follower. He said: "I don't necessarily believe in organized religion."I love my God, my higher power, but it is mine and mine alone, and I create my connection, and I decide how my connection is going to be. I believe that my connection to my higher power is separate from everybody's."I don't believe Muslims have all the answers and all the beliefs. I don't believe Christians have all the answers and beliefs, or that Jews have all the answers."Despite his scepticism, Will - whose wife Jada is still believed to be an active member of the Church of Scientology - insists everybody has the right to believe whatever they want.The 39-year-old actor added to US TV show 'Access Hollywood': "I was introduced to Scientology by Tom and I'm a student of world religion. I was raised in a Baptist household, I went to a Catholic school, but the ideas of the Bible are 98 per cent the same ideas of Scientology, 98 per cent the same ideas of Hinduism and Buddhism."When I sit and I talk with Tom, he is one of the greatest spirits that I've ever met - someone who is committed to making the world better."You have people who are attacking and want to fight that don't know nothing - how you going to not know nothing about Scientology and attack somebody? It's dangerous and it's ignorant."How can I condemn someone for what they believe and I believe that God was born from a pregnant virgin?"

TOM CRUISE WON'T SAY NO TO HIS SURI

The Cruise family

Tom Cruise can't say no to his daughter Suri because Scientology forbids it.The 'Top Gun' star and his wife Katie Holmes are encouraged by the sci-fi-cult, of which they are both devout followers, to "support" their 18-month-old child, not scold her. A source said: "Tom and Katie have a hard time saying no to Suri. It's all about being positive and supportive. Scientology advises parents to try to be the child's friend. They don't scold their children, but instead explain that bad behaviour is the 'wrong action'."Tom and Katie are very lenient with Suri and don't like to give her too many rules. Suri pretty much does whatever she wants, whenever she wants. If she fusses before bed, they let her stay up later. If they want her to go swimming and she cries, they'll take her out. If she whines about food,they'll ask her what else she wants to eat. They always want to please her."Suri, who is still too young to take Scientology classes, is also constantly surrounded by Scientologists and her two nannies are members of the 'religion'. The source added to Us Weekly magazine: "Tom doesn't like associating with people who aren't Scientologists."Tom, who has been hailed by leaders of the faith as the "chosen one", reportedly sent his two adopted teenage children to Scientology summer camp this year. A source revealed: "The summer camp is part of Scientology's 'get them while they're young' campaign."A Scientology representative has denied the faith interferes with the disciplining of its followers' children. The representative said: "How a parent disciplines their child is left up to the parent."

JOHN TRAVOLTA WON'T GIVE UP AIRPLANE TO HELP STOP WORLD GLOBAL WARMING !

'Not Gay' John Travolta in his Cockpit

John Travolta has revealed his bizarre solution for global warming - move to another planet.The actor, who is a follower of Scientology, thinks the only way mankind may be able to survive the impending environmental disaster is to colonise another world.Travolta - who infuriated environmentalists by flying his private jet to the London premiere of his new film 'Wild Hogs' - told BANG Showbiz: "I think that everyone can do their bit, but I'm wondering if we have to start thinking about other planets and also domed cities, because I don't know if there's a way to repair these holes in the sky."Despite his concerns, the 53-year-old actor - who owns and flies his own Boeing 707 - doesn't plan to cut down on his own carbon emissions by flying less. He said: "The thing is, I use them as a business tool. Maybe aviation will move into not contributing to those factors, but for the next 50 years, at least, that will be a fact."The founder of Scientology , American science fiction writer L Ron Hubbard, claimed that extra terrestrial beings were sent to Earth by intergalactic ruler Xenu, who then blew up the aliens with hydrogen bombs in a volcano.

JOHN TRAVOLTA SAY'S CULT SCIENTOLOGY COULD HAVE SAVED ANNA NICOLE SMITH

John Travolta-Danny DeVito-Anna Nicole Smith-Phil Jackson


John Travolta says Scientology could have saved Anna Nicole Smith.The actor insists the late Playboy Playmate may still be alive if she had checked into the controversial Scientology drug and detox programme Narconon. John, who worked with Anna Nicole on 'Be Cool', said: "It's so sad. We could have helped her with Narconon but didn't get the chance to. I wish we had."Narconon has been widely criticised for its unorthodox methods which are inspired by the teachings of Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard.The treatment includes taking large doses of vitamins, an intensive running program, and long sauna sessions which "run out" drugs and "radiation"from the body. Scientologists insist Narconon is 85 per cent effective, but it has been alleged the method has been used to convert vulnerable drug addicts to the bizarre sci-fi cult. A toxicology report from Anna Nicole's autopsy is yet to be released.The model-and-actress died on February 8, after being found unconscious in Hollywood's Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. Methadone and prescription drugs were found in her hotel room.
You should have sent a spaceship to pick her up !

JENNIFER LOPEZ'S FATHER IS SCIENTOLOGIST

Jennifer Lopez has revealed her father is a Scientologist.The Latino actress-and-singer has said that although she is a Catholic she thinks it a shame that Scientology has such a negative public perception. J.Lo said in an interview with US TV channel NBC 6: "My dad has been a Scientologist for 20 years. It's weird people want to paint it in a negative way. I, myself, am Catholic. But it's just sad that people would look at it Scientology in that way."'The Wedding Planner' star attended Tom Cruise and Katie Homes' Scientology wedding in Italy last year, and defended the ceremony which had received some public criticism. She said: "It was a great celebration of their love. It was good. It was beautiful."Earlier this month, the 37-year-old actress attended the Golden Globe Awards with her husband Marc Anthony, despite not being involved in any of the films nominated, or being asked to present a prize. J.Lo, who wore a glamorous couture gown to the ceremony, is adamant she went to the event for her own enjoyment and not just to parade around as a fashion icon. She said: "I just went for my own pleasure. Of course I'm aware people will see my dress. As long as I feel good in it, that' s the most important thing."
