Leah Remini Opens Up About Her Fight Against Scientology

Leah Remini is continuing to speak out about her experience with Scientology and fight for the victims of the church.

The 46-year-old King of Queens actress has a new A&E docuseries that goes into the aftermath of her decision to leave Scientology three years ago.

“I just felt that I had a responsibility to help out where I could,” Leah said on The Today Show. “I’m not a big fan of bullies. It is part of who I am and I was a fighter in the Church, this is what they taught me, and so I’m going to continue my fight. But I’m on the right side of that fight now. I’m sending a message that I’m not going to sit back and allow it to go on. … If you speak out you are labeled an enemy of the Church. [The] Church has policies on how to deal with their enemies and they go after them.”

“For me, it pales in comparison to what former high-ranking executives and parishioners had to deal with,” Leah added. “It’s not easy to walk away… You are leaving everything you know. You are giving up your whole life because that is what it takes to be a Scientologist, and then you are going to be losing your family because most of your family and friends are Scientologists.”

You can watch Leah‘s docuseries, Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath, on A&E on Tuesday nights at 10/9c.
