• Ron Miscavige •
    As Debased As They Come
    A Man with a Sordid History of Domestic Violence

    Ron Miscavige whitewashes his sordid history of domestic violence on his late wife and his two daughters. The many who know Ron, or have seen him when he is in a tight spot, know Ron Miscavige is as debased as they come.

    For instance, millions watched Megyn Kelly press Ron about hitting his wife and Ron admitted his history of wife beating. When she pressed him on how many times he punched his late wife, Loretta, Ron responded with the jaw-dropping admission, if only a partial truth, that “Maybe all the time, over a 10-year period—would happen maybe once a month or something like that.”

    That comes to a staggering 120 times that Ron Miscavige admits to punching his wife! But according to his daughters, Ron beat their mother far more often, on average twice a week.

    Ron Miscavige admitted to not only hitting but to choking his late wife.

    Ron’s own words from three decades ago also paint a more than dishonorable picture—that of a man with no restraint, a man who lost control and a man with no morals.

    Ron Miscavige admitted to not only hitting but to choking his late wife. In a moment of introspection, on February 27, 1977, Ron authored a handwritten account as part of the family’s effort to deal with his violent behavior; behavior that erupted after his younger son, David, the family’s moral compass, left home to join the religious order. Ron wrote:

    “I hit Loretta and lose control of myself at times (this was reported before but I have done this again since reporting it) 4 or 5 times. Also, have choked her at times when I can’t get her to ack [acknowledge] my originations [ideas].”

    Ron never got honest. While on air, he insisted to Megyn Kelly that he stopped abusing his wife altogether by proclaiming “I never again even had the urge to strike her.” That’s a lie. He said in his own words: “I used to beat Loretta up prior to Scientology and have punched her several times since.”

    The real truth is that Ron’s younger son, David, brought some moral compass to Ron. But when David left home, Ron was no longer held in check and lost control by resuming his domestic violence.

    Ron also lied on camera that he never punched his daughters. But Ron himself, and other members of his family, described in detail how Ron used to beat his daughters. On September 26, 1972, Ron wrote: “…I used to hit the kids a lot… Now if I see it’s the only thing I can do, I’ll give them a punch.”

    Further evidence that he lies in interviews about beating his children (after his younger son, the religious beacon, left home) are shown in the words of his late wife, along with his older son, Ronnie, and daughter Denise. Some 30 years ago they wrote:

    • “One time last weekend he hit one of the kids for answering him back.” – Loretta
    • “My father, Ron Miscavige […] beat Denise up with a belt buckle recently, a couple times. I don’t know the exact number.” – Ronnie
    • Took me up, beat me with a strap, bruised my whole back and sent me to bed…This morning again he hit me again, I can’t remember for what reason…We are (I am) afraid my dad will hit us.” – Denise

    That is certainly more than the revisionist history Ron tells now: that he “spanked the girls occasionally, but didn't abuse them.” Right.

    It is shameful that Ron Miscavige whitewashes his sordid history of domestic violence. What kind of “dad” does that? It tells the true picture of who Ron is and what he stands for. It is no surprise he is the black sheep of his family. Who would want such an unreformed, unrestrained and unrepentant man near them, near their daughters, near their grandchildren? Certainly not women of honor.
