Ex-Scientologist Leah Remini Declares: ‘No One Is Going to Tell Me How I Need to Think’
Actress Leah Remini is continuing to question Scientology less than a month after she famously left the controversial Church.
“We stand united, my family and I, and I think that says a lot about who we are, and what we’re about,” the 44-year-old told PEOPLE at an event over the weekend.
I believe that people should be able to question things. I believe that people should value family, and value friendships, and hold those things sacrosanct. That for me, that’s what I’m about. It wouldn’t matter what it was, simply because no one is going to tell me how I need to think, no one is going to tell me who I can, and cannot, talk to … It doesn’t matter, it could be anything. I thought about the family being broken up for some other cause, and I’m not about to shut up.
Remini reportedly parted ways with Scientology after she began questioning its leader, David Miscavige. Her counterparts have since banded together in weird and mysterious ways.
