A former Scientologist and estranged niece of the powerful church leader David Miscavige, says actress Katie Holmes has good reason to fear for the health and welfare of her 6-year-old daughter Suri.

“My experience in growing up in Scientology is that it is both mentally and at times physically abusive,” said Jenna Miscavige Hill on her personal website.

Miscavige Hill, who left the controversial cult in 2005, said she recalls children “suffering mental anguish under the pressure of trying to process conflicting information forced upon them.”

Miscavige Hill (pictured at right) is sympathetic to the plight of Holmes, who hired new bodyguards to protect her against the threatening tactics of the cult.

“As a mother myself, I offer my support to Katie and wish for her all of the strength she will need to do what is best for her and her daughter,” the 28-year-old said on ExScientologyKids.com.

According to the NY Daily News, Miscavige Hill “said that as a minor she endured forced labor at her Scientology boarding school, forced confessions, detention in rooms against her will and long periods of isolation from her excommunicated parents.”

Holmes, who filed for divorce from her controlling husband, Tom Cruise, cited the Scientology religion as the reason for the divorce.

But Cruise, who is the highest paid actor in Hollywood, has launched into damage control. His reps tell gossip website TMZ.com that Scientology had nothing to do with Holmes’s divorce action.

      Scientology Leader David Miscavige’s Wife Has Been Missing Since 2006″

      I think if Katie had not said She didnt approve of the Stuff going on,She may of had reason to worry.However since she has Been vocal about Not approving and hiring NEW bodyguards she may have come up M.I.A just like the leaders wife!

      Situations like this is the reason the Lord God Almighty commands His chosen people ( descendants of negroes, latinos, and native indians ) to stay away from the heathen, and do not copy their ways…

      Don’t try to be like them

      Don’t worship what they worship

      Don’t celebrate the non-sense pagan holidays that they celebrate

      Don’t support nothing they do or say that falls OUTSIDE OF GOD”S COMMMANDMENTS!!!!

      Katie will be fine. Not even the CoS is bold enough to take her out now. The world is watching and they’d never get away with it.

      I do predict this cult’s downfall sooner than later. And I think Tom will be the cause of it. CoS is loosing it’s grip. It’s why John Travolta is in so much trouble. I heard he started rethinking his “faith” after he lost his son. I think now they are out to destroy his rep and his career cause he’s tired of their crazy bullsht. I think the same will happen with Tom. I will be glad to see that day. Very glad.

      ntology leader David Miscavige is often cited as Tom Cruise’s best friend. He was best man at Cruise’s ill-fated marriage to Katie Holmes and once threw the star a huge birthday party.
      But the numerous references to Miscavige left out one really sketchy detail: his wife, Shelly, hasn’t been seen since 2006.
      Shelly was another Scientologist who was rumored to have led the church’s search for Tom’s third wife.
      According to a recent New York Post article, Shelly set up Tom and Katie:
      After the Cruz breakup, the lovelorn actor turned to his best friend, Scientology leader Miscavige, for help in finding a new wife. The diminutive church boss, who has a notoriously volcanic temper, became irritated with constant calls from Tom. As the head of a multibillion-dollar operation, he felt it was below him to be seeking out women for the Hollywood star. He deputized his wife, Shelly, to take over the task.
      The New Yorker’s Lawrence Wright reported that last year Shelley has been missing since 2006 and “her status is unknown.” Just before she went missing, she had supposedly filled several job vacancies without her husband’s permission.

      Misbehaving Scientologists have been known to allegedly be locked up in “The Hole,” a group of buildings where people are held captive. The church denies it exists.
      Miscavige also has allegedly violent tendencies, according to the article:
      Twelve other defectors told me that they had been beaten by Miscavige, or had witnessed Miscavige beating other church staff members. Most of them, like John Peeler, noted that Miscavige’s demeanor changed “like the snap of a finger.” Others who never saw such violence spoke of their constant fear of the leader’s anger.
      So far, Shelley hasn’t surfaced.

      If Will and Jada are Scientologists then you are talking about the same religion.

      The CoS believes that parents are only vessels to deliver their children to this Earth. Because all humans are just ancient alien souls so they’ve been there and done that for centuries. They don’t need to be “raised” as if they are brand new. Or some bullsht like that. :lol:

      I think that Will and Jada ARE scientologists though they have never directly answered the question other than something regarding all religions. They donate a lot of money to scientology and their schools as well.

      The whole thing is a cult in the way they indoctrinate people and discourage any disagreement within their ranks or from “outsiders”. It was “founded” by a science fiction writer. That right there should be enough to keep people away. But they promise money and power and “miracles” and you’d be surprised how many rich folks fall for it. Poor folks can’t afford to be saved by Scientologists.

      Google David Miscavige if you want to know the ugly side. He’s the head of that snake of a so called church.
