I am a Scientologist and a proud one at that. I’m also Jewish and as a Jewish person I never had to worry about being attacked for my religious orientation in America and surely would never imagine it being condoned by one of my role-model companies.
My name is Dominick Joseph and I am writing you today in an attempt to focus your attention on the negative effects that are being created in my life and the lives of people I know as a result of a show being produced by one of your channels, A&E, called “Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath.”
I decided to write you as I recently found out that A&E has just green lit another season of “Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath.” I’m not sure if you are aware of this or what this show is about, but I wanted to share with you how it has affected my family.
I have always loved Disney for their anti-bullying and anti-discrimination policies but not now that you are supporting a program which is only creating false information, bigotry, bullying and discrimination against Scientologists.
Why not do a show that shows the millions of people who have been helped by Scientology? Or the millions of people who have found personal relief and help due to the selfless humanitarian deeds of Scientologists? Rather than a handful of people who can’t get any other job…
At what point will someone at A&E step up and say, “Hey, wait a minute. We are paying a couple of ex-members of a thriving religion to get others to carry their message of hate. Is this the type of channel we want to be?”
Please rise to the occasion and close the window. Pull the plug on further shows that will only degrade your reputation. You may not realize the harm they do to individuals and families; I have seen it.
I have been a Scientology Minister since 1968. What you are doing by sponsoring this Leah Remini witch hunt against Scientology and Scientologists is all too familiar. You are harming a lot of good people who save lives and help people all over the world.
It is hard to conceive that Disney is in any way involved in such hateful, money-motivated messaging. It makes me wonder if amusement park owners in Germany actively worked to create hatred against Jews as you are doing with me and my family.
