It’s Katie’s worst nightmare — her daughter being indoctrinated by Scientologists. That’s the warning from former top Scientologist, Marty Rathbun, who says Suri would endure a life of physical and mental abuse, and would be taught to turn against her mother.
As Scientology surfaces as one of the main culprits behind Katie Holmes, 33, filing for divorce from Tom Cruise, 50, a new report says that the former Dawson’s Creek star has every reason to fear losing her 6-year-old daughter, Suri, to the religion.
“The two dangers I see are having her child turned against her and people pulling strings behind her back to screw up her career,” said former Scientology Inspector General, Marty Rathbun, in a New York Daily News story.
According to the report, Rathbun had left the church after enduring physical abuse and stints in “The Hole,” a prison where he slept on the floor and ate cold leftovers.
He warns that Scientology members “want to get Suri indoctrinated to lose affection for her mother and go out of communication with her.”
Another former Scientologist, Jenna Miscavige Hill, the niece of current church leader David Miscavige, said she is still scarred from her Scientology upbringing and warns Katie that Scientology is no place for an innocent child to belong. When Jenna was a kid she was sent to Scientology boarding school and endured forced confessions, detention in rooms against her will, and periods where she wouldn’t see her parents for weeks or years. The 28-year old is one of Scientology’s most vocal critics, as a co-founder of the website exscientologykids.com.
