Disney, Leah Remini is About Hate Not About Love

I find it very strange at this point in history that any company would produce a show that would so viciously attack a recognized religion, especially one that has done so much to help mankind. I mean, come on—this is 2017, not 1930 (Germany), 1605 (religious persecution in Europe) or 1300 (Inquisition).

Dear Mr. Sherwood:

I recently heard that an outrageous Emmy nomination has come out and it is now time for me to speak up about Leah Remini and her hate-mongering show. I find it very strange at this point in history that any company would produce a show that would so viciously attack a recognized religion, especially one that has done so much to help mankind. I mean, come on—this is 2017, not 1930 (Germany), 1605 (religious persecution in Europe) or 1300 (Inquisition).

Since when does a hateful show that is anti-religion deserve an award?

There would be so much uproar if you produced an anti-Jewish, Baptist or Muslim show, yet this hateful propaganda is being thrown against Scientology and its members. This violates my most basic American rights when someone is trying to destroy me and my family’s religion, create prejudice against us and deny us our right to practice our religion of choice.
