Dear Mr. Knapp:

As a cable TV subscriber for many years and a Scientologist for over 44 years, I am disgusted to see the religious hate and bigotry campaign that Leah Remini is promoting in her so called “docuseries.”

It is totally false and has twisted information designed not to resolve any problem or issue with my Church, but to suppress and harm my religion.

This fake reality TV series that incites religious bigotry, and has resulted in harmful consequences, needs to be removed from any sponsor’s list of programs to advertise on.

In an era of “fake news,” this is the worst. That you advertise on this program shows your support for this kind of religious hate. Your association with this program indicates that you agree with religious hate. Do you really want the products that you advertise on this show to reflect that type of image of your company?

I strongly recommend that you remove your support for this program, which is a source of religious hate. How can any sponsor support such a campaign?

I am strongly considering cancelling my cable subscription and relying on some other medium than cable, and not purchasing any products from the sponsors that support Leah Remini programs.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Sincerely,
Edward Maher
Quincy, Mass.
