Stop Hate—Don’t Discriminate
The irresponsible and vitriolic Leah Remini A&E show’s incitement of religious discrimination and hatred results in real, physical-world consequences. People suffer. Parishioners, their children, the Church, and officers of the Church experience those results directly ranging from passing discriminatory insults to extreme threats of violence that require the involvement of law enforcement. Read some of their heartbreaking personal stories below, of how the dishonest and untrustworthy Leah Remini A&E show has spread hate.
A Real Story A&E TV Doesn’t Want You to See
I run a website about Scientology and parenting. If you Google the terms “Scientology” and “parenting,” it’s the first thing that comes up. It’s pretty obvious to the laziest and most incompetent researcher possible.
A&E Attacks Religions. Yours Could Be Next.
Where does A&E CEO Nancy Dubuc draw the line for hate-based propaganda on their network? Apparently nowhere. The financial beneficiary of their slanderous attack show against Scientology has just announced plans to expand the hate-mongering to other minority religions.
A&E: When You Pay for Hate Speech That’s Exactly What You Get
It’s obvious why journalists are wary of those who offer to trade information for profit— such people are all too likely to say what they think the person paying them wants to hear, regardless of the truth. Put in cruder terms than in the SPJ’s Code: “You get what you pay for.”

“Cult” Defined: Any Religion Practiced by Others
The effort to make these religious groups seem dangerous, threatening or just plain weird was prodigious. And didn’t really work on me, to be honest—my husband’s family includes a large branch of Jehovah’s Witnesses and they all seem perfectly normal to me.
Disney Has a Problem
As a sad testimony to the bloodthirstiness of a portion of America’s viewing public, Remini’s show had a few people watching for a while. But the viewers had a short attention span for eavesdropping on an obsessed actress piously peddling her pet peeves and have moved on. The ratings have tanked.
Disney: It’s Time to Pull the Plug on A&E
The loss in viewership, attributed to A&E’s cancellation of its police show, Live PD, exposed a suppurating inoperable tumor in the network’s gut: a penchant for bigotry, violence and sensationalism. That penchant spawned an ultimately fatal addiction to shows featuring crime on the one hand, while whitewashing discrimination and hatred of minority religions on the other.
Disney’s Latest Family Value: Hate
