Tonight’s 2nd Reddit AMA is the final show we have shot for this season of Leah Remini Scientology The Aftermath. A&E has another special coming about Leah, but it is a bonus, not considered part of this “series” of 7 episodes and 2 Reddit AMA specials.
It has been a wild ride — the response has been beyond anything we could have hoped for. What I said at the end of the show is absolutely correct. I am not stopping. This experience has only motivated me to push harder. Though it is on everyone’s mind right now, I cannot tell you that there is a Season 2 yet, nothing has been finalized. But I will certainly let everyone know if things all work out and that is confirmed. There are so many more stories to be told, and so many people who have come forward that something has to be done!
We wanted to take the opportunity with this last Q and A to answer some of the most often asked questions and air some things (like the Debbie Cook testimony and information about L. Ron Hubbard) that are not NEW, but have not been seen by the audience this show now has.
As always, I am interested in your views of this show and now the entire series – including criticisms and things you think might be better explained or covered.
As always, for new readers here I thought you might find it instructive to be directed to some earlier postings that may help explain some things about scientlogy.
To begin to understand the mindset scientologists have about those who criticize any part of it, read this article:
And then read this one:
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 this is a post about the lies they tell about their “expansion”:
What You Can Do
Call your Congressman and Senator to do something about the ongoing abuses. Initiate a Congressional Hearing. Ask them to demand the FBI or IRS look into things with the church. Write to the IRS. Support and comment on media articles and blogs that cover the abuses (like Tony Ortega at the Underground Bunker) and express your support to A&E for stepping up and taking on scientology.
If you are the victim of a crime, report it to law enforcement (local police/sheriff and/or FBI).
Don’t ever think you have no voice or there is nothing you can do. There is plenty.
Your support of Leah and everyone else involved is invaluable and appreciated. Please don’t stop. Knowing there are a lot of people out there on our side is comforting and gives strength.
