F0.png Critical Q&A #126 September 17, 2017, Chris Shelton, Critical Thinker at Large

The weekly show where I answer viewer questions left in the comments sections of my Q&A videos or sent to me by email to This week, the questions I answer are:

(1) Hi Chris! I've been following you since day-1. My friends think it's really strange that I'm so into Scientology news. I wish I had an outlet or someone to talk to about it with. Due to your recent podcast with the Scientology-watcher who hosts the podcast "Come Get Sum", journalists like Tony Ortega, and the new Leah Remini show, I'm realizing it's not that strange that I'm a Scientology-watcher. I live in the San Diego area now and I'm wondering if people ever meet up to chat about it—outside of the internet. Do you know of any resources like that? I've heard of Howdy-con and I'd love to go to that if it ends up near me this year or my resources are right to travel to it. Thanks a lot for your thoughtful and articulate responses to everybody's questions!

(2) I wonder if you have noticed the anti-Leah Remini and her show attack ads on Youtube. I seem to get them when I'm watching videos by ex-Scientologists, as well as with some other videos. I have to admit that I haven't actually watched any of them because I skip them after 5 seconds. Is the church responsible for these ads? I noticed one of them involves her dad talking, I assume about what a bad daughter she was. Is this video taken directly from her hate site?
