Tough question coming up and I don't know who will ask or how but I feel it needs to be faced at some point : For the wealthy and famous Scientologists who leave and realize the cult is actually a harmful group , and the tech is actually a fraud with no benefit - how do they feel when they realize the intelligence / abuse / legal protection / criminal organization is actually entirely financially dependent on the mountains of money they donated to continue ? I see a cult as primarily needing slaves , but Scientology has a two pronged assault on society in my mind using slaves and financial resources to establish and continue its survival .
Without the resources to fight endlessly in court and take on governments and fight the IRS to a draw it would be playing a very different game of running to countries until it is kicked out .
I feel Leah Remini is a good person to start with ( if she is willing to discuss this - and like myself sees Scientology as harmful ) as I have no ill will toward her and frankly she is very easy for lots of people to be sympathetic toward because of her obvious beauty but more than that she comes across as someone who genuinely thought the tech and Sea Org were not corrupt .
In asking about DM's wife and then writing the report she shows a person who is not denying all of the evil she sees in blind obedience so we can see some goodness in her . Yeah , lots of guys get semi-crushes or whatever cause she's real purty ( I love my wife , I love my wife ) - but the important thing to me is lots of little things like reporting DM , asking about Shelly , expressing regret over time lost with her kids etc. .
These things humanize her in a way Grant Cardone would have a very hard time matching - if he ever woke up and left the cult . Or Tommy Davis etc..
So , if she were ever comfortable I would love to see an in depth interview with her with all of these issues addressed . Obviously Tony Ortega would be my first pick as he is the pro journalist best informed and qualified in my opinion . If you somehow read this Leah it would be a great help for lots of us to see what you think and feel about Scientology and unfortunately having financed the cult's terrorist activities . I do not want to upset anyone but I think we should be honest with each other - when we are ready and comfortable .
There are aspects of my past I discuss with very few people or no one and that is my right - Leah Remini and other exes also have the same right . Just because she is beautiful , rich and famous does not change that .
