VIDEO: Actress Leah Remini Breaks From Scientology, Calls the Church ‘Corrupt’

According to a report this morning in the New York Post, Scientology has lost another celebrity member.

King of Queens actress Leah Remini has reportedly made a “dramatic break” from the controversial religion, with The Post going on to report that the actress and former talk-show host questioned and objected to many of the practices within the church — even criticizing its infamous leader, David Miscavige, which resulted in many years of “interrogations” and “thought modifications.”

“She is stepping back from a regime she thinks is corrupt,” a source from The Post is quoted as saying. Remini had condemned and “questioned the validity of excommunication of people,” the source says. “She thinks no religion should tear apart a family or abuse someone under the umbrella of ‘religion.’”

The church’s rift with Remini allegedly began at the wedding of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes in Italy back in ’06. According to reports, Remini asked about the whereabouts of Miscavige’s wife Shelley, who had not been seen in public since 2007.

Remini was aggressively scolded for the inquiry, and as a result she was subjected to “interrogations and blacklisted within the church that she donated millions to and that her family has spent their lives in. She was put through ‘thought modification’ for five years,” The Post’s source said.

The source went on to say that friends Remini had within the church for decades “wrote internal reports” about her that “caused an investigation on her family.”

“She’s from Brooklyn. The church can’t hurt her,” the source concluded. “They don’t have her family, that’s all that matters to her. […] The issue is that [Miscavige] is taking down this church and hurting families.”

    All religions are corrupt and the source of wars since the beginning of time. Scientology is one of the most outrageous and totally mystifying how they keep members other than through intimidation and abject terror.

    Stop calling this cult a church. Even this article adds to its legitimacy

    I have never believed in these corrupt and controlling ‘groups’ of people. Organized religions are for people who can’t think for themselves and Scientology has always been one of the worst. I’m saddened that such a manipulative group of people sucked her in!

    Unfortunately, there is nothing new about a particular type of “organized religion” being corrupt. All of the wold religions (and organizations referred to as cults) have negative aspects and are certainly no where near perfect. Many people, myself included, do not take part in organized religions for this reason and a whole host of other reasons, as well. If people find comfort and get their spiritual needs met by belonging to a church, I find no fault with their choices.
