On Tuesday night's second season premiere of A&E's Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath, two women born into Scientology gave their accounts of sexual abuse at the hands of members of the church, and alleged that other church members ignored them when they shared what had happened.

Saina Kamula, who appears first in the video above, said that she was bullied when she began attending the Scientology-run Apollo Training Academy (which she described as "basically a school," with a laugh). When she was 8, she says a teacher took her under his wing, only to begin touching her inappropriately and kissing her on the neck. When she told her mother she didn't want to go to that school, Kamula recalls, "She didn't ask me why. She just said, 'You're being counter-intention to my dreams, to my purpose.'"

Kamula then alleges that she attempted to tell another teacher, who accused her of "nattering"—Scientology speak for "negative chatter."
