Shame on bigots Bill Maher and Leah Remini

Such a cheap shot made out of left field shows that neither Remini nor Maher knows anything about Scientology or its belief system and that their only interest is in creating religious hatred. Imagine someone making the statement that “Mel Gibson could end Catholicism” or “Woody Allen could end Judaism.”

Dear Megan,

The article published on your site “Scientology critic Leah Remini says Tom Cruise could ‘end this’ if he wanted” is nothing but a vile and bigoted anti-Scientology attack on my religion.

Such a cheap shot made out of left field shows that neither Remini nor Maher knows anything about Scientology or its belief system and that their only interest is in creating religious hatred. Imagine someone making the statement that “Mel Gibson could end Catholicism” or “Woody Allen could end Judaism.

In truth, this is just pure bigotry and hate.

The web page of the United States Department of Justice dealing with religious freedom doesn't say “Protecting the Religious Freedom of All, Except Scientology.” It states, “Protecting the Religious Freedom of All.” It is all-inclusive because that is the overriding all-embracing principle at the heart of our democracy.

Bigotry of any kind has no place in our society.
