Actress Leah Remini is having a pretty big year thanks to her recent promotion to a series regular on the reveal Kevin Can Wait. However, the superstar has a second present running in tandem with the sitcom, and the subject matter is a lot more serious.
Following her nine-year run on CBS The King of Queens, Reminis profile dipped a with merely a few failed sitcoms and a run on The Talk. Her starring rose again when she turned her opinions on Scientology into a TV show. The 47 -year-old actress spent most of her life in the Church of Scientology before having a very public split from it in 2013. Last year, she debuted Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath. The series gained a lot of acclaim for featuring stories about people, like herself, who say they were shunned from the church. Undeterred, she lately told The Hollywood Reporter that Season 2 of the present, which premieres August 15, will take a step into the realm of activism. She claimed that the new episodes will glisten a light on what she calls, the abusive practises of Scientology.
When requested information about these abusive practices, Remini shares some graphic details about what she says the churchs outlook is on such things as molestation.
Scientology policy dictates that children are grown men and women in little bodies. They believe a 7-year-old girl should not shudder at being passionately kissed. That’s in Dianetics, ” she says, referencing church founder L. Ron Hubbard’s 1950 volume. If you join the Sea Org[ a clergy class with a nautical heritage] as small children, your mothers give you over to Scientology. Children are treated as crew. They are assets. And if a child is molested, that child and/ or mother cannot go to the police, because it’s against policy. They handle it in Scientology. They will usually bring the molester in and give them spiritual ‘auditing, ‘ or counseling.”
The star says that, with her work on Season 2, she hopes to cause enough of a stir to warrant some kind of federal investigation into the church and its practices.
