Leah Remini Quit Scientology Because Of Tom Cruise

leah remini

Leah Remini quit Scientology last year after basically spending her entire life in the cult Church. She’s even writing a tell-all book that’s going to be so juicy and I can’t wait to read it. We all know Scientology is a crock of boloney that somehow has gained ground in Hollywood, convincing actors to give millions of dollars to some freakazoid who claims aliens brought us to Earth or whatever nonsense they believe. And look, I’m not here to shit on anyone’s religious beliefs regardless of my own, but we all know Scientology is NOT a religion; it’s a cult.

In any case, Leah has now revealed another little tidbit: Tom Cruise is basically the reason she finally left, in many ways. Turns out, he’s basically the Jesus Christ of Scientology, and the Church doesn’t take too kindly to anyone saying anything bad about him.

From 20/20 (via US Weekly):

“The decision to leave is… you’re giving up everything you’ve worked for your whole life,” she says in a preview clip of the interview, set to air on Friday, Oct. 30. “I think people need to understand that this was my whole life, and I want them to understand that this is how it happened.”

“As time goes on, you begin to lose touch with the real world,” she says. “The mindset begins to be ‘Us against them.’”

“Being critical of Tom Cruise is being critical of Scientology itself,” she claims, adding that anyone who dares to disparage either was deemed “evil.”

LOL at that. How does ANYONE see Scientology as viable in any way, or at all attractive? The star of Mission: Impossible is their “savior” and you can’t say anything against him? They want a ton of your income and control of your life? And what exactly does anyone get out of this, other than a weird version of regression therapy?
