The Hollywood connection to Scientology has always been pretty strong, but Leah Remini hopes the new documentary “Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief” will help to tell the real story of the controversial cult.
Having left the church back in 2013, the “King of Queens” actress is glad that some of the closely-guarded secrets are now out in the open. On Sunday (March 29) Remini tweeted, “Thank you to the brave who did something about it. And to those who didn’t have a voice, you do now.”
In an interview, documentarian Alex Gibney declared, “You know, there’s a doctrine in the church called ‘fair game,’ which means that if there are critics of the church, it’s fair game to go after them in any way you can to slander them. It’s interesting to me that a church, which is a religious organization in theory, would spend so much time trying to provoke hatred.”
