Hershey’s Actions in Support of Anti-Scientology Hate on A&E are Disgusting

I’m profoundly saddened and disgusted that you have chosen to advertise on A&E during Leah Remini’s show that promotes intolerance and bigotry. In light of the recent events occurring in our country, that you would support a program that seeks to marginalize members of any religion is nothing short of hateful and dangerous. I’m both Jewish and a practicing Scientologist, and I can assure you your actions have been deeply noted.

Dear Sir,

I’m profoundly saddened and disgusted that you have chosen to advertise on A&E during Leah Remini’s show that promotes intolerance and bigotry. In light of the recent events occurring in our country, that you would support a program that seeks to marginalize members of any religion is nothing short of hateful and dangerous. I’m both Jewish and a practicing Scientologist, and I can assure you your actions have been deeply noted.

I’m sure you’ve done very little research to determine the validity of what A&E is airing. Most of Germany didn’t either when Nazi propaganda was being spewed everywhere. I could enlighten you on all the humanitarian programs the Church of Scientology supports—our incredible drug education program, Truth About Drugs, that is recognized internationally as one of the most successful drug awareness campaigns for children. Are you against that as well?

Suffice it to say, I will be boycotting your company if you continue to advertise during a hate program and I’ll make sure to enlighten my friends and family of your intolerant views as well.

In a time in our country when religions are being attacked because of the current political divide, we should be seeking actual understanding and tolerance, not supporting the promotion of hate and falsehoods with our advertising money.

History will remember your stance on this. So will my wallet.

Sincerely,
D.B.
