Post Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath - Season 2
If you're interested in the subject, this series is recommended. Not sure when Season 2 starts, but the 2 hour preview is worth watching on A & E. I used to think the worst of Scientology came out after David Miscavige took over, but this preview documents the psychotic aggressive actions against outsiders has been official policy since L. Ron Hubbard wrote them 1955 - 1959. Leah Remini and Mike Rinder (former Scientology enforcer) are working on a major lawsuit against that organization.

“Engaging in litigation with Scientology is not something that anyone but a fool does lightly." Mike Rinder

I'm LOVING the show! My wife and I and lots of people we know are pretty fired up about a potential lawsuit. I can't believe they've been allowed to cause the harm they have caused for so long. Leah Remini is impressing the hell out of me. Mike, on the other hand, scares me. This guy did so much wrong for so many years that I struggle to forgive him. How about you, LanDroid? Oh, and on a superficial level I find Leah Remini to be really gorgeous.

I think all religions are basically tribal units. It is beyond my understanding why anyone would voluntarily choose to join or remain in an abusive religion and not seek a better one.

I understand the draw of the tribe but to join Scientology turns my small amount of tribal understanding on it's head.

Care to speculate on the poor psychology of joining such a religion?

Regards
DL

Post Re: Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath - Season 2
I am enjoying this season. The info is even more damaging than the 1st season. Currently a few episodes behind, but I am interested in the lawsuit. Unfortunately I figure if something major was about to happen, the media would have already picked up on it.

Somehow my wife got onto a local Scientology mailing list. They butcher her name as "Houant," so who knows where that came from. Here's a photo of the materials received a day or two ago.

Out of morbid curiosity, my daughter set up an anonymous account and took the personality test. More on that later...

Post Re: Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath - Season 2
I agree about a possible lawsuit. If it were to be a big lawsuit targeting the whole church we'd have heard about it. Something tells me it will be a small suit where one victim seeks some sort of restoration/settlement. That won't impress me much. I'd like to see the church attacked for taking children away from their parents, forcing abortions, locking people up in "the hole," physical abuse by COB, etc...
