Leah Remini reveals reason for leaving Scientology

leah-remini In an interview with BuzzFeed, Leah Remini has opened up about her reasons for leaving Scientology.

The 43-year-old actress, who was a member of the church since childhood, says that the religion is a “lie” and explains why she decided to walk away from it.

“I’m not trying to bash anybody and I’m not trying to be controversial. I just want people to know the truth,” she says.

Leah lost many friends because of her decision to leave Scientology. She continues: “They only cared that their lives would be disrupted if they stood with me. They didn’t care about doing the right thing. We had a chance to make a change from within, but they didn’t want to. That showed me they didn’t actually care, which went against everything I thought we stood for.”

“In the church, you’re taught that everybody is lost,” Leah added. “They say they’re loving, caring, nonjudgmental people, but secretly, they were judging the world for not believing what they believed. That’s a judgmental person, and that is the person that I was. I was a hypocrite, and the worst thing you can be in this world is a hypocrite.”

    Well, I believe Leah did the right choice. This is so true about any religion, as it is not actually about the religion, but people. It is hard for people to be non-judgmental. Apteral, we are all sinful. People who are close to God just try hard to be better and that is. Still, the human nature Is all eth same. People, ho have reached the high stages of enlightenment can boast better results, but for the most part people in church are hypocritical and this is what really turns me off. When a person leaves the church they do not care for the person, but themselves not to communicate with the ‘fallen’ member of church. And this contradicts any aspect of Bible or any religious wiring.
