Notable participants[edit] David Miscavige
David Miscavige
is the leader of the Church of Scientology.[4] Since he assumed his leadership position, there have been a number of allegations made against David Miscavige. These include claims of forced separation of family members, coercive fundraising practices, harassment of journalists and church critics, and humiliation of church staff members, including physical assaults upon them by Miscavige.[5][6] Miscavige and church spokespersons deny the majority of these claims, often criticizing the credibility of those who bring them.[7][8] [5][6] Mike Rinder
Mike Rinder
is a former senior executive of the Church of Scientology International (CSI) and the Sea Organization based in the United States.[9] From 1982 to 2007, Rinder served on the Board of Directors of CSI and also held the post of Executive Director of its Office of Special
Special
Affairs, overseeing the corporate, legal and public relations matters of the Church at the international level.[10] Rinder left the Church in 2007 after becoming disillusioned with what he perceived to be the increasingly authoritarian nature of senior management under David Miscavige.

He has not been seen publicly since 2004.[14] Shelly Miscaviage, the wife of David Miscavige, has made no public appearances since August 2007.[15] [16] The Church of Scientology denies that she is missing and states that she is working for the church out of the public eye.[15] Reception[edit] Saturday Night Live[edit] The video was parodied by Saturday Night Live

(with the organization's name changed to "Neurotology" for the video), updated with supposed on-screen annotations as to where each individual in the music video currently resides and what they're up to. Many of the footnotes are satirical towards Scientology
