Scientology may be based on a series of Roger Ramjet cartoon plots, but they don’t fuck around when it comes to protecting the name brand. Within moments of Leah Remini announcing her A&E Scientology documentary series, the Church produced a website to tell the true story of why Remini is such a twisted lying backstabbing self-serving bitch. Though that domain was taken, so they went with www.leahreminiaftermath.com. Not saying the site isn’t chock fully of Soviet era propaganda pieces, but in a couple days they built one superior to this site. Kudos, team Xenu.
Scientology claims Remini didn’t leave the religion, she was asked to leave for unethical conduct. No further explanation needed apparently. Nor a mention of which astral plane is currently holding the three million she contributed during the course of her tenure.
Leah Remini has repeatedly disparaged and exploited her former faith for profit and attention through a series of failed publicity stunts, culminating in her reality TV show featuring a cast of admitted liars who to make a buck have been telling differing versions of the same false tales of abuse for years.
That sounds serious. There’s no end to what one middle aged pudgy TV actress can do against a multi-billion dollar religious empire with a shitload of D-batteries in their storage closets.
To be fair to the nuts at Scientology, nobody’s ever found a smoking gun against them. Lots of innuendo and recounts of threatening phone calls and weird dudes staring at you from across the street. My college alumni fundraising associations does worse. Scientology forces you into cloistered living situations, but it’s largely voluntary. You can’t get your money back, but neither could Catholic parishioners when they learned their tithings were going toward priest sex abuse settlements. Laissez-faire.
She called Travolta a chickenhawk in front of others, right?
