David Miscavige Comes Out of the Shadows on the First Night of Scientologys TV Network - 2018-03-13
David Miscavige, leader of the Church of Scientology and boon companion to Tom Cruise, has a deep, honeyed voice, a kindly smile, and penetrating sky-blue eyes that go together well with his expensively tailored blue-serge suit and muted gray tie.
And although he is quite compact—an impression made unavoidable by the many photographs of the blond-pompadoured Miscavige grinning and standing an inch or two shorter than his already-diminutive movie-star pal—he radiates Alpha maleness, a comfort with power and, one has to admit, a certain charismatic charm.
"We're not here to preach to you, or to convince you, or to convert you," the 57-year-old Miscavige—whose formal title is Chairman of the Board of the Religious Technology Center—declared as he introduced Monday night's launch of the Scientology Network. The premiere of the round-the-clock television channel starting at 8 p.m. was carried on DirecTV to some 20 million subscribers as well as on a variety of web platforms and apps.
