Blog: 5 More Reasons "Scientology and the Aftermath" is More Important Than You Think - 2017-08-17
The second season of Leah Remini's Emmy-nominated Scientology and the Aftermath has now debuted on A&E and the first episode was a heavy punch in the gut to anyone with a heart or an ounce of humanity. The stories that Saina Kamula and Mirriam Frances told were horrifying and unfortuantely, are not isolated or singular instances. This, of course, is the point of telling these stories in the first place. Leah's show is a call to action to all of us to step up and do something. We can't change the past, but we can certainly act to stop these abuses in the future but only if we are aware of what the supposed "church" of Scientology is really all about.
This past week, before and after the premiere, Scientology and its enablers took to social media, Reddit and other forums in a vain attempt to denounce Leah and the guests on her show as liars and bitter apostates, a strategy that did not work in Season 1 and frankly, has never worked. Anyone with an ounce of common sense can look at what was portrayed in Season 1 and now what is rolling out in Season 2 and see that Scientology is a group that condones sexual and psychological abuses because its members are under the horribly mistaken notion that the philosophy and mission of Scientology are more important than the well being of its members, even its children. This is a pretty sick way of looking at the world and as a former member, I know because I used to be there.
Last year, I posted a video laying out five reasons Scientology and the Aftermath is more important than you may realize. A link to that video is below. Now here are five more reasons that Season 2 is even more important than Season 1.
