Leah Remini isn’t afraid of the Church of Scientology.
The actress took to Reddit on Tuesday ahead of her new A&E docu-series to answer fans’ questions about what really goes on in the controversial church.
“Do the higher ups know it’s a scam or do they really believe this crap?” one fan asked.
“The higher up is singular. And he definitely knows. however I believe most parishioners and Sea Org members (people who work for the “church”) are int he dark and believe that they are doing amazing things for the world. And David Miscavige is directly responsible for that fraud,” Remini answered.
According to the actress, the church can turn against those who chose to leave the faith. Members of the church have also been accused of physical violence. That’s something that worried one fan of Remini’s, who asked about her safety.
“Do you personally feel like you’re being watched/tracked/etc by the church for doing everything your doing?” the Reddit user asked.

“I am. I’m okay with it because I knew what I was getting into and I knew the policies of the ‘church’ and what would happen by my speaking out against it,” she wrote.
Another user asked if she feels safe and Remini replied, “Yes, I feel very safe. I have the support of my family and friends. And, I feel strangely protected by the world at large.”
According to Remini, her views of Hollywood also took a hit when she decided to join the church years ago.
“When I was a Scientologist I saw Hollywood as a dark, lost bunch of souls that needed saving,” she wrote. “Now I see it as any other business and that we’re all just trying to do right by ourselves, right by our friends and family and that people outside of Scientology are not bad.”
As for Remini’s decision to leave the church, she admitted that it was a long time coming, rather than one breaking point that ended it all.
“Long term struggle [with the decision], however, seeing the ‘church’ attack those who were speaking out, those who gave their life, life savings, their children to this organization that were once considered exemplary Scientologists or staff members of the church to being liars, bitter apostates, and what ever vile sophomoric, vitriolic adjective they can find overnight says a lot about the organization,” she wrote.
