Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath

sci-and-the-aftermathLeah Remini is an US actress, known to the public for various roles, principally as one of the leads in the TV series, “King of Queens.”

She was ‘born into’ Scientology and participated for many years. Recently, however, she left the organisation.

The details of ‘the straw that broke the camel’s back’ are bizarre. A decade ago, after a dispute with her husband, the wife of the current leader of Scientology disappeared. In 2013 Leah Remini wanted to know where her friend had gone – and was aggressively blocked. The fact that she did so during a celebrity wedding which Miscavige was attending made matters worse.

Eventually, Remini filed a missing persons report with the Los Angeles police. Informed sources place Shelley in an isolated Scientology facility, which includes an underground bunker. This place is dedicated to preserving he writings of the founder of Scientology L Ron Hubbard.  The police cast no light on Shelley’s whereabouts. They  claimed to have determined that she was not under duress, and therefore her location was confidential.

After leaving Scientology shortly after these events (with her family, who refused to ‘disconnect’ from her, as per Scientology policy) Leah Remini produced a eight-part critical TV series about Scientology, which is now being broadcast. This is different from previous examinations (e.g. “Going Clear”) . It does not take a documentary approach, but is based upon first hand experience and interviews with ex-Scientologists. It promises to bring the abusive behaviour of the Church of Scientology to a new, wider audience, and add a human dimension.

    • You’re most welcome. With Monday’s ‘bonus episode’ thre are still 6 more to look forward to! I will get them up as quickly as possible, but it might take until two days after broadcast.

    • You aren’t alone. Critics who are following this series seem to be watching each episode several times. I think this is due to the way in which it leads with a human story which it gradually fills out with facts, rather than taking an academic/historical approach which often leads to yet another potted history of Scientology, drawn from the same, familiar sources.

      • Leah Remini adds a personal touch to her A&E series as she uproots and debunks scientology. Ms. Remini has a heart bigger than anything that cult can conjure up. Some people fight fire with fire; Leah Remini overwhelms the enemy and the airwaves with love.
