John Sweeney Talks The Church of Fear, Which Comes Out Today - 2013-01-07
Scientology's "pope" a foul-mouthed, violent bully?
A new book coming out today by BBC newsman John Sweeney makes use of secret electronic communications that portray Scientology's leader, David Miscavige, berating his underlings in texts with phrases like "You Suck!" and "Counter-Intentional Cock Sucker!" and "You Suck Cock on Hollywood Boulevard!"
Sweeney is famous for blowing up in a temper tantrum while filming his 2007 BBC Panorama special, Scientology and Me, and says he's wanted for years to write a book about his experiences making that documentary and its followup, 2010's The Secrets of Scientology.
