While Ronald T. Miscavige (Ronald Sr.’s) book is a fraudulent narrative from beginning to end, perhaps the clearest and most glaring lies concern his cover-up of his own acts and those of his oldest son Ronald Jr. (Ronnie) (READ THE POLICE REPORTS). And those lies set the stage for the false premise of his alleged reason for writing the book: the personal decisions by his daughters to have nothing further to do with him.
Ronald Sr. writes that he believes the Church ordered his daughters to “disconnect” from him. In fact the opposite is true: it was he who cut off communications with them, after moving into Ronnie’s house, an act anathema to his daughters.
Ronald Sr. left the Sea Organization in violation of its requirements for
ending one’s tenure in the Church’s religious order, his daughters, in an
attempt to reconcile with their elderly father, asked him to move to Florida to
be near their families. This was despite
his history of having beaten them and their mother for years. Arrangements were
even made so Ronald Sr. could live a comfortable and good life in Florida. He refused.
His daughters then implored him not to go live with their older brother
Ronnie, whose unforgivable behavior toward them seared through their memories
for a lifetime. They made clear to their
father that they would consider such an action on his part to be a personal
betrayal. Again, Ronald Sr. ignored
their pleas and left to live with Ronnie.
sooner had Ronald Sr. arrived to live at Ronnie’s house than Ronnie was
arrested by police in Hampton, VA., as part of a larger FBI sting into drugs and prostitution. This, of course,
was the same category of abusive and immoral behavior—sex crimes—to which Ronnie’s sisters
had been subjected to years earlier, thereby affirming their reasons for
objecting to their father going to live with Ronnie. As stated in the police records, the Court
disposition for Ronnie’s soliciting prostitution from a known human sex
trafficking victim reads “GUILTY W/H/F UNTIL NOV 2013.” The report elaborates that there were at
least 30 such incidents in just a two month period with single
prostitutes and even one instance of a threesome involving “everything.”
The police documents show he used a cell phone
with the same phone number he uses as a Manager of Long & Foster.
Ronnie admitted to the police that he “was afraid . . . to answer
the[ir] question truthfully” because he “was afraid that he would get in
trouble if he did so.”
Ronald Sr. cannot claim ignorance of these events. WHEN THE POLICE ARRESTED RONNIE, RONALD SR. WAS LIVING AT RONNIE’S HOUSE, having ignored the despairing pleas of his daughters that he not live with the brother. And Ronald Sr. continued to stay with Ronnie even after the arrest and even after Ronnie’s wife Bitty left him shortly thereafter and moved across the country, while Ronald Sr. helped conceal the entire matter from the rest of the family.
Indeed, after Ronald Sr. left to live with
Ronnie, he did not communicate with his daughters at all for the next two
years. It was he who
discontinued the relationship, with guilty knowledge, but unconcern, about how
he had ignored their pleas and caused them immense pain. Then, in a setup
obviously designed to set the stage for the book he already was writing, he
appeared unannounced at the door of his eldest daughter, whose husband, in her
absence, told him he was not welcome.
only that. Having chosen to discuss Ronnie
in his so-called memoir, Ronald Sr. fails to disclose the facts of Ronnie’s
arrest on charges of moral turpitude at the very time that he was visiting his
son’s house. Instead, astonishingly, Ronald
Sr. writes in his book that during that time,
“I got along great with Ronnie and Bitty, and life was good.”
He even goes as far as to say:
“I don't think Ronnie ever gave anybody reason to dislike him.”
Life could not have been too good for Bitty, who certainly had reason to dislike him after his arrest, following which she moved away and then divorced him. And life could not have been too good for Ronald Sr.’s daughters, who once again were betrayed by a father who chose to live with their nightmare of a brother.
Ronald Sr., however, ironically was quite correct in writing that:
“I have been told that, as adults, Ronnie and David couldn't be more
the very time (the same day) that
Ronnie was being arrested and charged with a sex crime (while Ronald Sr. was
living with Ronnie and witnessing the shameful events), David Miscavige was
opening a magnificent Church of Scientology in Israel in a landmark building in
Jaffa that the Church had restored to its onetime distinctive beauty. And at that opening, representatives from all
sectors of Israeli society, including local officials, a representative of the
government, a representative of the peace movement, and a representative of the
Israeli Arab community, warmly welcomed the presence of the Church and
expressed confidence and hope that the Church would play a vital role in
restoring peace and harmony to the Holy Land.
As for his father, no further comment is needed.
