Blog: Settin' the Record Straight - 2011-10-11
Rachel Denk is a productive member of the independent community, having contributed finances, meters, books, lectures on CD, lectures on cassette tape, an LRH framed photo, friendship and advice, and lots of data. She comments on this blog as Hallelujah and TheWidowDenk. It is her sincere hope that – through her contributions – others are made aware of the gross misapplication of Source by Miscavige and his minions, and find the initiative and wherewithal to do something about it. She has shared with me the facts surrounding the church's treatment of legendary Scientologist, L Ron Hubbard's personal doctor, and her husband Dr Gene Denk.
Dr. Denk was head of the Shaw Health Center. His many years of service to Hubbard, Sea Org and staff members, and public Scientologists created a large, loyal patient base. Chiropractor Stephen D. Price was Dr Gene Denk's partner and, supposedly, his friend.
After Hubbard died and Miscavige anointed himself king, Stephen Price apparently began to value another "friend" more highly than Dr. Denk. Stephen became a personal pet of Miscavige, visiting him every weekend at the Int base since the eighties to the present. Stephen gave Miscavige chiropractic services and special, lengthy massages. He also regularly went out to play golf and go to the movies with Miscavige, and when at the Freewinds they would go scuba diving and to lavish dinners with one another. Miscavige had Price hang around the base all weekend long (almost every weekend, and many times extending into the work week) for years waiting for whenever Miscavige needed or wanted Stephen's magic fingers or a recreation break from his fellow Sea Org members whom he considered to a one to be riff raff. For the last two decades Price has regularly accompanied Miscavige on his trips around the world, along with Miscavige's entourage of hairdresser, stewards, and chefs. Whenever Price happened to mention a personal problem with any org, Miscavige would be on it like white on rice, as if Tom Cruise himself had squealed like a stuck pig.
