Skip to comments.Karen Bass Praised the Church of Scientology and Leah Remini Stepped in to School Her

"I know that the Church of Scientology has made a difference because your creed is a universal one that speaks to all people everywhere," Bass said. "I look forward to helping you bring about the difference for everyone in this city, the Golden State of California and from here, the nation, and from the nation, the world."
Remini, who was raised in the Scientology religion and has a show dedicated to exposing the church's wrongdoings, said Americans deserve to have a vice presidential pick that stands "for the good and decent when its not convenient, who are willing to fight the Goliaths of the world."
"I too supported this criminal cult of Scientology at one time. But most of us believed we had no option to do our research for fear of being punished for looking -- just as it is in Scientology today. I was raised in it from childhood. What is the excuse for those never-in who lend their voice to this criminal cult? Are you denouncing Scientology or are you saying you still think this cult deserves your support?" the actress asked.

I heard it’s easy to get girls in those cults.
Brainwashing them helps :)
Saw a documentary on them a few weeks ago.
They have the equivalent of slave labor camps for those who do wrong and their intimidation tactics are incredibly sadistic
there was a Scientologist here who recently died.
I remember his really defending them when the topic came up when Jet Travolta died. But he later saw the light:
Didnt you use to be a Scientologist? Or at least defended them quite a bit many years ago.
Yeah, that’s me, and yes, I did defend the philosophy - if not the founder and the organization.
I publicly resigned from the organization six years ago, and in that time, my evaluations of the philosophy/practice itself have changed quite a bit. I no longer accept every bit of Scientology theory/practice/belief as being workable or valid.
Devout churchies would consider me to be a ‘squirrel’ - i.e., someone who alters Scientology practices.

Scientology is right up there with the Climate Change cult.
We watched all of the shows Leah did and I read a book recently by one of the folks who managed to ‘escape’. Weird as hell. Money maker though. Pretty sure admiral david miss-cabbage lives pretty high on the hog. Anyone seen Shelly Miscavage? No doubt L Ron is grinning looking down from the space ship.
I don’t know much about Hell but I’m pretty sure that it has an L. Ron Hubbard wing.
“We watched all of the shows Leah did...” “Weird as hell.”
We did, too. They were excellent. And it IS weird.
“Anyone seen Shelly Miscavage?”
Dirt nap, I expect.
the pictures of what happened to her are disgusting and I cant look at them
I could never be a Dr or Work at a morgue...or be cop or EMT or fireman..and on and on and on.
I remember some of the commentary during the show about her. It’s almost like they have “DI”. Democratic Immunity.
A lot there.
Bass will not be Biden’s choice....Joe will be replaced before the election for medical reasons...............
For Travolta, Clinton reportedly went to the extraordinary length of assigning National Security Adviser Sandy Berger to be the Administrations Scientology point man.
Isn't that the spaceship that looks exactly like a DC-8?
I watched her first season and also a separate HBO documentary that aired before her show started. I remember how actor Jason Beghe (an escapee) was embarrassed to admit that he used to believe their ridiculous BS. Hard to imagine any halfway intelligent adult signing up for it (which is probably why they attract so many actors).
Greta Van Susteren is a member. Go figure.
Scientology is the exact definition of a “CULT”.
Complete and total brainwashing.
There's a long-running story that "Scientology" was actually the result of a bet between sci-fi authors Robert Heinlein and L Ron Hubbard.
Just as long as you sign the 5 million year contract........
