Mark Fisher was in Scientology for more than 15 years. He ended up becoming a corporate liaison to Miscavige, supervising his household and carrying out special assignments. So he worked with, for, or near to Miscavige.
Even for Fisher though, the Church of Scientology experience soured and went south fast. It got to the point where he wanted to leave the Church. He was one of the ex-Scientologists interviewed for the Tampa Bay Times exceptional Truth Rundown series. If you haven’t seen it yet, it’s a must-watch and -read.
Mark Fisher was assaulted by David Miscavige, an experience which shocked him. It’s worth repeating… a man who calls himself the leader of a religion ASSAULTED a parishioner. This is conduct worthy of Jim Jones, but less so of the Pope, Dalai Lama, etc. etc. It was the straw that broke the camel’s back, in Fisher’s case.
Soon after, Mark Fisher left and ended up in Las Vegas with several other ex-Scientologists. Miscavige ended up having him followed and stalked… but that’s for another post (or 10).
