Leah Remini Quotes:
“There’s a lot of things that are good in Scientology because I wouldn’t have been in it. And that’s the thing: a lot of people trivialize this thing, like, ‘Oh, it’s Xenu, and it’s a volcano, and it’s jumping on couches and acting crazy.’ These people are victims. We’ve been victimized. We believed in something because it starts out very normal.”
“I always was trying to make people laugh as a kid. I was a big fan of Carol Burnett and Gilda Radner. I watched them and I remember feeling as a child when I heard the laughter they got, a little jealous that they made someone laugh like that.”
“I didn’t want to raise my daughter in the church because from what I experienced and what I saw, the church becomes everything – your mother, your father, your everything. You are dependent on the church.”
“In my house, it’s family first – but I was spending most of my time at the church. So, I was saying ‘family first,’ but I wasn’t showing that. I didn’t like the message that sent my daughter.”
“My actions and the things I say and do, I wonder if they have an effect on my daughter and the way she’s going to be as a person. I just want her to be a good person.”
“The only way out of the Scientology church is rip the Band-Aid off and know that your eternity is not at stake and know that you’re doing the right thing and know that you’re involved in a damaging, hurtful cult. Just look outside, don’t listen to Scientology. They are not saving the world. Don’t give up your lives, don’t give up your families, don’t give up your friends for something that turns its back on you and is ultimately a lie. What’s Scientology’s selling is a lie.”
