The show has aired, my laundry has been hung out for all to see, and now it’s on to Episode 3.
As always, I am interested in your views – including criticisms and things you think might be better explained or covered (and I will try not to respond to everything with “it’s in a later episode.”)
I also suspect there are quite a number of new people who are coming to this blog for the first time. To all of you, welcome.
I thought you might find it instructive to be directed to some earlier postings I have done that may help explain some things if you just watched the show or are curious about the bizarre scientology statements about Leah, me or anyone who has a differing opinion of their infallibility and dares voice it.
Perhaps most important is to understand the mindset scientologists have about those who criticize any part of it:
And here is a fairly short explanation of how disconnection is used in scientology (and how they try to spin the practice):
An overview of the efforts by scientology to smear Leah Remini:
And finally, my telling of the incident when 9 people showed up the parking lot of my wife’s doctor to attempt to intimidate me and her. This eventually became the basis for them calling me “Lady Killer”(?), “wife-beater” and physically assaulting her “causing permanent nerve damage”…
Additional thought this morning:
Thank you to all who have sent messages of support and love by text, phone, email, FB, twitter, instagram and courier pigeon. It has been quite overwhelming. I cannot hope to respond to everyone. I try to read everything and that alone is a challenge. If I do not “Like” your comment or Tweet or respond to your message, please understand it is appreciated.
Many wonder what they can do. Call or write to your Congressman and Senator to do something about the ongoing abuses. Write to the IRS. Support and comment on media articles and blogs that cover the abuses (like Tony Ortega at the Underground Bunker and any others that are helping raise awareness of the truth about scientology). Watch Scientology The Aftermath every week and tell your friends to do so and support A&E for stepping up and taking on scientology.
Don’t ever think you have no voice or there is nothing you can do. There is plenty.
The support of Leah and Amy and me and those you have not yet seen is invaluable and appreciated. Keep it up. Knowing there are a lot of people out there on our side is comforting and gives strength.
