Paul Haggis Wrote An Open Letter To Leah Remini

When Paul Haggis left Scientology, apparently Leah Remini still maintained contact with him despite explicit instructions from the church to treat him like he has full Klaknor shingles. And now in light of her recent deflection, he’s written an open letter to The Hollywood Reporter offering her support for questioning where the hell David Miscaviage‘s missing wife went and recalling the horseshit he went through after he left. Horseshit like being shouted down after daring to suggest David Miscavige is a human being:

What was new to me was the report that Leah had run afoul of the church by challenging Scientology’s leader, David Miscavige, who is held to be infallible. When I was leaving and was visited by waves of angry friends and a phalange of top Scientology executives, trying to convince me to tear up my letter and resign quietly, I made a similar mistake by insisting they look into the charges of abuse detailed by the Tampa Bay Times. I was working on a film about Martin Luther King Jr. at that moment and made the polite suggestion that even great leaders like Dr. King were human and fallible. Two of the senior church leaders leapt to their feet and shouted at me, “How dare you compare a great man like David Miscavige to Martin Luther King!” I ended the meeting at that point, thanking them for coming.

“What the hell, Paul Haggis? How dare you compare David Miscavige to a lowly human? Do you forget the sacred texts of the day in 3415 when under the express instructions of L. Ron Hubbard’s cyborg form, David Miscavige fired a powerful laser beam into the mind’s eye of the Creator of the Universe and remade us all in his image? Then how dare you compare him to someone I’m pretty sure you made up. Martin Luther King Jr.? There’s no way that’s real.” – How that conversation went and there’s no telling me otherwise.

Haven't there already been like 10 tell-alls about this group? They're like the Star magazine of cults. I'm sick of hearing about them.

R3, There are so many books about the cult because no one can believe it's that over-the-top ridiculous, and that US allows it to violate so many laws.
