And you thought the HBO documentary Going Clear caused quite the stir in the Scientology community. Well that will be nothing compared to the book Ronald Miscavige Sr will be writing in regards to his experience with the church and one more important detail in his life; he's the father of David Miscavige, the leader of the Scientology Church since 1986 after the death of L. Ron Hubbard. David Miscavige's title is Captain of the Sea Org. which makes him the highest ranking member of the church. And his dad is ready to tell the world his juicy details in a book titled "If He Dies, He Dies." Weird title, but there's a reason for it.
The title comes from a story Miscavige Sr. told the LA Times in which his son had assigned private investigators to keep an eye on his father because he had become estranged from the church and David. At one point, one of the investigators had allegedly seen Miscavige Sr. grab his chest thinking he might be having a heart attack. The investigator called the church asking if he should intervene and help the Church Leader's father. David Miscavige allegedly called back personally and said "If he dies, he dies." Oof.
Of course, all of this is coming from the father of one of the most talked about churches in history so who knows what you can believe but based on the title, it's certainly not going to be a love letter to the organization. All I can say is watch Going Clear if you haven't to get an idea of the stories you might get in Miscavige Sr.'s book.
I just hope there's a few chapters dedicated to this INTENSE handshake between Tom Cruise and David Miscavige. They're literally about to break each other's wrists.
