On Mother's Day, Leah Remini accuses Scientology of 'destroying families since 1955' - 2019-05-12
Actress and former Scientologist Leah Remini used the occasion of Mother's Day to once again sound the alarm about Scientology's practices, sharing photographs of people protesting against the organization's "disconnection" doctrine that allegedly requires believers to cut ties with family members who stand in opposition to the group's teachings.
"To moms who can't see their kids today because of Scientology's Disconnection policy, I celebrate you for never giving up the fight to get them back," the actress wrote on Twitter. "And to the moms who disconnected from their kids, I hope you realize this breaks their hearts. You DO have a choice."
She then resurfaced posts from Twitter users who said they had been disconnected from their families as a result of Scientology, later charging the organization with "ruining families" since its founding by L. Ron Hubbard in the 1950s.
