In the last year, we’ve been bringing up this quote frequently on social media, and someone who apparently noticed was Leah Remini, who cited the quote recently on her A&E series, Scientology and the Aftermath.
Leah has been working hard to bring to light shocking cases of child abuse and child molestation in Scientology, an organization that has a long track record of keeping allegations of abuse from reaching law enforcement agencies.
Thank you for what you continue to do to bring all of this to light.
UPDATE: Have to admit, we didn’t expect to see this — Scientology’s own official response to this passage.
