Blog: David Miscavige: "The Adulterer"? - 2009-09-29
The latest series of posts on Marty Rathbun's blog reveals that David Miscavige may well have sent his own wife off to a "re-education" program at a confidential location, meanwhile carrying on an illicit affair with his "Communicator," Laurisse Henley-Smith (formerly Stuckenbrock).
Sure, maybe if Miscavige were a Washington politician or a corporate CEO, we could dismiss such peccadilloes as "human nature." But it's much more serious than that. Let's put it in context.
When a group of former Int Base staff recently spoke out against Miscavige's violence and abuse in a series of articles in the St. Petersburg Times, the Church's response was to attack and vilify those former staffers. One in particular they branded 'The Adultress," stating that she had repeated extramarital affairs.
