Ex-Scientologist Jenna Miscavige Hill on ABC Nightline TONIGHT (UPDATE: Video Here)
Big hat tip to Dawn at GlossLip for notifying everyone that Jenna Miscavige Hill, ex-Scientologist and niece of current Scientology leader David Miscavige, will be on ABC‘s Nightline tonight at 11:35 PM.
Miscavige Hill rose to prominence when she began speaking out against the “Church” of Scientology a few months ago. Her first major statement was an open reply to Scientology spokesperson Karen Pouw who claimed that Andrew Morton’s claims in his Unauthorized Biography of Tom Cruise that Scientology encourages or forces Scientologists to disconnect from those who do not support the “Church” was not only untrue but anti-thetical to what Scientology promotes. Miscavige Hill said that Pouw’s statement was flat out false, and attested to the fact that the cult does disconnect families, as she has witnessed and experienced first hand. Coming from the niece of the head of the cult, this statement carried great weight.
Shortly after this statement and subsequent media appearances, Miscavige Hill in collaboration with other fellow Ex-Scientology Kids, Kendra Wiseman and Astra Woodcraft, launched the website ExScientologyKids.Com, which is dedicated to spreading awareness of how Scientology breaks up families and abuses “child Scientologists” (i.e., children indoctrinated into Scientology by their Scientologists parents), helping former and current child Scientologists come into contact with others with similar experiences for support, and helping child Scientologists escape as the cult as she and her co-site admins did.
Be sure to catch tonight’s Nightline to hear more about the cult from someone who was about as inside as one can get.
