Actress Leah Remini (“King Of Queens”) Files Missing Person Report On Shelly Miscavige, Wife Of The Leader Of Scientology
Shelly is the wife of David Miscavige, Tom Cruise’s “best friend” and best man in his wedding to Katie Holmes. After going missing in late 2005, early 2006, she was seen briefly in 2007 at a funeral with “minders” who did not allow her to talk to anyone else. When Remini asked about her, Remini was subjected to five years of interrogations and behavior modifications by Scientology, before she finally left them last month.
Shelly Miscavige reportedly has not been seen in public in six years, and Remini questions whether she is being “punished for her own shortcomings.”
After her public break with Scientology last month, Leah Remini has taken action and filed a missing person report for the wife of the controversial religion’s leader, David Miscavige, The Hollywood Reporter confirms.
The Los Angeles Police Department confirmed only that an investigation regarding Shelly (Michelle) Miscavige is ongoing, but a source close to The King of Queens actress confirms that Remini filed the report herself.
According to writer Tony Ortega‘s website, The Underground Bunker, which focuses on the inner workings of the secretive organization, Shelly Miscavige has not been publicly sighted in six years.
According to Ortega, Shelly Miscavige allegedly was transferred from Scientology’s headquarters near Hemet, Calif., to a secret compound near Lake Arrowhead in late 2005 or early 2006. The compound, known as the Church of Spiritual Technology, reportedly houses about a dozen Scientologists who are said to be completely cut off from the outside world. Miscavige and his attorneys have not publicly confirmed Shelly’s whereabouts. According to Ortega’s report, Remini questions whether Shelly has freedom of movement or is being “punished for her own shortcomings.”

(CNSNews.com) – Secretary of State John Kerry announced Wednesday the formation of the Office of Faith-Based Community Initiatives, which will be headed by Shaun Casey, a former religion advisor to President Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign and a liberal professor who last year touted the end of ‘civil religion’ in the United States.
“I, frankly, am glad American civil religion is dying,” Casey said at a discussion last year at the Center for American Progress focused on “God and Politics” in the last presidential election.
Kerry introduced Casey as a person who cares about faith in American society.
“Over the years, I’ve come to appreciate Shaun as a deeply thoughtful person who cares about the place of faith in our public life,” Kerry said.
