[David Miscavige] has a heart of a lion. He has a lot of pride and responsibility for everything that he does. And he does not mince words, he doesn’t waste time, he gets it done. Ray, Photographer
There’s one thing that I’ve always heard behind the scenes that Mr. Miscavige says is, “You should see my inbox.” You know, meaning this guy works just relentlessly. I don’t even know—I’m sure he sleeps, but he is 100 percent, all the time, full throttle, there to make sure that Scientology is the way LRH intended it to be and making it accessible for the public to have and use. And he is the one that’s been behind all that.
I’ve been around him in public at events where—and people will approach him and he’s never like, “Oh, I can’t. I’m not going to talk to,” you know, “talk to you.” He’s always cordial. He always leaves time and gives time to everybody. And that to me is really sort of impressive, that you could be the leader of our Church and at the same time be an everyday guy.
When he is doing an event, where he’s preparing for an event, you know he goes out on stage, he’s talking to a broad audience. But when he’s talking to that broad audience, the way he’s talking to them, he’ll talk to you the same exact way. It’s the same exact person. It’s, there’s no showmanship. He’s not embellishing anything. He’s really passionate. He really cares. And you get that when you’re speaking to him one-on-one, too.
I realized that he has a heart of a lion. He is—has a lot of pride and responsibility for everything that he does. And he does not mince words, he doesn’t waste time, he gets it done. And just like a lion. You know, if you want to have a leader, you want a guy that’s there, standing behind you and is going to just go to bat for you. And he’s the guy that does that. And I don’t know anybody, I’ve never met anyone who even comes close to that when you speak about leaders, let alone friends or people that I know. But if some of these world leaders had just an ounce of what he has, I mean, the world would be a much better place.
