Aaron’s—It Is Time to Cancel Your Subsidy of A&E’s Anti-Religious Hate-Propaganda TV

The hatred and intolerance being spread by the A&E/Leah Remini show currently airing takes bigotry to a whole new and dangerous level.

Dear Sir,

Please immediately stop advertising and supporting Leah Remini’s show on A&E. A young Scientologist was murdered last week because of the discrimination Remini is spreading.

I have been a Scientologist for nearly 40 years. I’ve seen various media attacks on the Church throughout that period of time and in spite of those, the Church of Scientology has continued to thrive and expand all over the world. However, the hatred and intolerance being spread by the A&E/Leah Remini show currently airing takes bigotry to a whole new and dangerous level.

There have literally been hundreds of threats against my Church as a result of A&E’s anti-Scientology hate program. These include bomb threats and death threats.

As an American and a woman of faith, I will not allow bigotry to prosper and will therefore boycott any company that continues to advertise on Remini's program. Please make the right decision and stop supporting hate, intolerance, prejudice, harm and murder through your advertisement.

Sincerely,
Ann Pearce
Seattle, Wash.
