Leah Remini Hints At Why She Left the Church of Scientology

Leah Remini has offered the first hints about why she publically left the Church of Scientology, telling People magazine no one is going to tell her how to think or who she can speak to.

Remini - best known for starring in 'King of Queens' - split from the controversial church after three decades, thanking fans and colleagues for their support though giving no real indication as to the reasons for the departure. However, speaking to People magazine at an event in California on Saturday (July 27, 2013), the actress said: "I believe that people should value family, and value friendships, and hold those things sacrosanct. That for me, that's what I'm about."

"It wouldn't matter what it was, simply because no one is going to tell me how I need to think, no one is going to tell me who I can, and cannot, talk to," she added.

In a story at the time of her exit, the New York Post said the actress left the church after "being subjected to years of interrogations and thought modification" for questioning leader David Miscavige's rule.

When contacted by Contactmusic.com, representatives for the Church of Scientology made no comment.

"We stand united, my family and I, and I think that says a lot about who we are, and what we're about," added Remini over the weekend. 

The Church of Scientology lists Hollywood actors Tom Cruise and John Travolta amongst its members.

What is a SCIENTOLOGIST? (Also-known-as A RONBOT) He/she is a person who now believes that all Illnesses, accidents, foul-ups come ONLY from being associated with a Suppressive Person (SP) or Critic. If ORDERED he will permanently disconnect from family and/or friends accused as being SPs. That also includes ABANDONING children who may criticize the cult and ABORTING babies. His children as young as 8 years old will be imprisoned if he disobeys, in special “Rehabilitation Project Force” camps, and made to work 10 hours 24/7 without pay. He too will be imprisoned for thinking or acting as a Free-man or a Free-woman. He is NOT allowed to read, talk with, listen to, research, Google, marry, date, work, donate, help any SPs or view websites critical of the cult. But he will attack, abuse, felony stalk (Fla. Stat § 784.048.), lie, Cyber stalk, betray, cheat, steal, harass and do any crime to protect the cult. He is a brain-washed trapped sub-human, because his confessionals WILL be used to ruin his job, career, fame or reputation or freedom if he does not do as ordered. INDEPENDENT SCIENTOLOGISTS are free thinking men and women and NOT slaves or Ronbots. Celebrities are never allowed to know the real Godless Cult of Greed and Sin.
