Support for Leah leaving Scientology

2013-07-13 13:24
Los Angeles - Actress Leah Remini is expressing appreciation to fans and others following word of her decision to leave the Church of Scientology.

In a statement issued on Thursday by her talent agency, the former King of Queens star said she was grateful to the media, her colleagues and fans around the world for their "overwhelmingly positive support."

The statement made no mention of Scientology, and the APA talent and literary agency said Remini had no further comment.

But a person familiar with Remini's decision said the statement referred to her break with the church and public reaction to it. The person, who wasn't authorised to comment publicly, spoke on condition of anonymity.

A message seeking comment from the Church of Scientology International in Los Angeles was not immediately returned Thursday night.

Remini has been a longtime member of the church. When she joined CBS' daytime programme The Talk in 2010 as an original co-host, she told a news conference that she didn't intend to make her religion part of the show.

"I love to make people laugh, entertain them. That other thing is something that is not even part of my discussion," said Remini, who was with The Talk for a season.

She co-starred in the freshman sitcom Family Tools, which ended a brief run this week, and in the 2007-08 comedy In the Motherhood, and starred opposite Kevin James in the long-running King of Queens that aired from 1998-2007.

    One less fool in Hollywood

      It's not just Hollywood. I bought a house from a person who had been a Scientologist for a couple of years then pulled out about 3 years before I bought. It took me 5 years, phone calls to the USA, phone calls to SA Scientology offices and eventually a lawyer's letter delivered by hand to the local Scientolgoy office to stop them from sending their bumpf to my house. Once they have a hold of you it is tickets!

    There are hundreds of Scientologists in prison in the Rehabilitation Project Force (RPF) detainment camps right now. These are Free Thinking Scientologists that finally became aware and freed themselves from being dead-head, brain-washed Ronbots, that it is all a scam, and a fraud upon the people. Also to be imprisoned, they must have discovered the fact that the Copyrights of the Cult are owned by EX-IRS agents assigned by the Federal USA, Inc. to take it over and run it as a Science Fiction Cult. But the socialist media will not expose this, and the Feds will not free them. All of the missing high ranking staff are there or buried there. The GOD RON was there until they broke his spirit and was forced to sign all the rights and ownership of the cult to them. These hidden facts are even kept from the members and ex-members by the Office of Special Affairs, which is the cult’s spy and attack war machine. There are even some ex-members that pose as Leaders of the Cult that won’t disclose these facts to you. There are traitors both in and out of the cult that have been in violation of US Codes 18; 241, 242 & US Code 42; 1983, 1985, 1986, and are in treason. The crimes of the cult run deep. All the hidden secrets of Scientology are exposed here. http://theronbothunter.wordpress.com/2013/03/01/every-fraud-scam-dirty-trick-ttreason-and-crime-by-scientology-exposed/ THE RONBOT HUNTER ALL RIGHTS RESERVED
