Canceling my subscription to A&E
I’ve always believed that hate begets hate, and Leah Remini’s one-sided program sends America a message that it is okay to terrorize someone because of their religious views.

Dear Mr. Buccieri,
I am writing to you to express my displeasure with the A&E program “Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath.” As a Scientologist and an A&E viewer I am sure you can understand this presents some problems for me.
I have been a Scientologist for nine years and 1. have never experienced any of the issues portrayed in Ms. Remini’s show and 2. have never been bullied so heavily as I have been since this show has aired.
My family, who have watched me flourish and prosper in Scientology, since watching the grossly false claims in A&E’s show, are now not only worried about me, but very hostile towards my religion. The idea that in 2017 we have a TV show on one of America’s mainstream TV networks that is promoting discrimination and religious intolerance is quite appalling. I’ve always believed that hate begets hate, and Leah Remini’s one-sided program sends America a message that it is okay to terrorize someone because of their religious views.
I urge you to look into the past of these “victimized” ex-Scientologists. I have, and learned about their alarming crimes against not only the Church but their own friends and family.
As a result of pursing a life with Scientology I have been able to improve my relationships with others, build a very successful company and help others. As disappointing as missing the new season of “The Bates Motel” will be, I have cancelled my A&E subscription and deleted my app. I simply cannot support a network that is hypocritical and has false morals, and that would promote false/unsubstantiated claims against a religion purely for profit and the mongering of fear and hate.
