Scientology's homophobia and its disconnection policy - still producing refugees today - 2018-07-06
One of the questions we've run into numerous times since Leah Remini's series began airing come from people not very familiar with Scientology who ask why it is that the people who appear on the show all seem so prosperous and living in lavish homes.
We've explained to them that some of the homes used in the program were selected by the production company and weren't actually where the interviewees were living, but we did want to address the idea that former Scientologists are all prospering since leaving the church.
That isn't always the case. We hear from people who have struggled mightily after leaving the church or the Sea Org, and who have had a difficult time adapting to a very different world than the one they might have grown up in.
