Leah Remini Opens Up About Her Past in Scientology
Leah Remini has revealed a lot of jaw-dropping secrets about Scientology in her TV documentary Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath. Best known for her role as Carrie Heffernan in the comedy series The King of Queens, Remini has been an anti-Scientology activist since leaving the church in 2013. She’s written a memoir and created a platform for other former Scientologists to discuss their experiences.
In Remini’s documentary, we’ve discovered many shocking stories about Scientology.
For example, there’s a long list of Scientology courses titled “The Bridge to Total Freedom” which is unbelievably expensive. Each required course costs about $650 and requires a full week of participation from 9 am to 10 pm every day. The church claims that people would be able to cure cancer in themselves if they’ve taken enough courses to reach the top of the “Bridge”.
Ironically, the “Bridge” courses change every so often that it’s impossible to reach the top. You have to repeat the courses whenever Scientology changes or updates the books.
In addition to courses, Scientology also requires members to attend “auditing” sessions. An auditor would record these sessions while interrogating the members, forcing them to admit to some sort of wrongdoings. If a celebrity was to speak out against the church, Scientology can use those videotapes against him or her.
While these stories seem morbidly realistic, Scientology has declined every allegation in the documentary.
