Would You Put Your Religion On Blast?

Normally I stay clear of controversial news but this battle between Leah Remini and her former religion Scientology has turned ugly. Remini has some strong allegations against her former religion some have been the following: “The policy of the ‘Church’ does not allow them to come to me,” she said. “Former high ranking Sea Org members like Debbie Cook and former members like Katie Holmes are forbidden to speak to other [suppressive persons, or ex-members]. Certain members are forced to sign agreements that does not allow them to speak to ex-members.”

“If you want to get them out there is no way to do it nicely. There is no way to do it quietly. You have to challenge them by saying, ‘If you can think for yourself, if you have truly accomplished what Scientology says you have accomplished, you should be able to speak freely on any subject.’ […] You should ask them how is it then that you can’t watch a movie called Going Clear or look on the Internet if you are the elite of the planet and handling the planet’s ills if you can’t think for yourself. I only hope that your challenge will get them to simply look.”

Scientology didn’t stand idly by on these allegations. They responded right back.

“Desperate for attention with an acting career stuck in a nearly decade-long tailspin, Leah Remini needs to move on with her life. Instead, she seeks publicity by maliciously spreading lies about the Church using the same handful of bitter zealots who were kicked out years ago for chronic dishonesty and corruption and whose false claims the Church refuted years ago, including through judicial decisions.”

Ouch!

So dear reader what about you? Would you if you were dissatisfied with your religion would you put them on blast like what Leah Remini did?
