Dear Sir,
My name is Chris and I am a professional musician in Los Angeles and I have been a Scientologist since I was 18 years old.

I’m writing to you in regards to the A&E mini-series “Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath.” I mostly just wanted to share my personal story on how Leah’s constant bigotry has affected my life and some of my relationships.

Over the last few years, I’ve had two long-term girlfriends who were negatively affected by Leah’s unfair portrayal of my religion.

What happened in these two relationships is that whenever Leah would speak out against Scientology, I would have to talk to and go over in exact detail what they heard and explain to them how it’s actually not true or how she has twisted something to make Scientology look bad.

The point I want to make you aware of is that she is positioning herself as an authority figure on Scientology and it makes it extremely difficult to tell another side to the story, one where people benefit and get something from a religion and are in no way harmed. I would like to live in a world—and I’m sure I’m a dreamer—where it’s ok for people to disagree but they do it with respect and politeness for other people’s beliefs.

I hope you have a wonderful day and I appreciate you taking the time to read this letter.

Sincerely,
Chris
Los Angeles, Calif.
