Set in sunny Los Angeles, Tuesday’s Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath shared another dark account of a former parishioner’s time in the Church.

Leah Remini revealed some startling aspects of Scientology during a Reddit AMA promoting the premiere of her new A&E series, "Leah Remini : Scientology and the Aftermath," on Tuesday. The AMA covered the actress' 30 years of experiences as a member of the Church of Scientology and her ongoing mission since leaving the church behind to expose the organization for its alleged mistreatment, abuses, and suppression of its members and those who have left the church.

In a new A&E docu-series which she executive produced, Leah Remini : Scientology and the Aftermath, Remini interviews former members of the Church of Scientology about their experiences as followers and their lives after leaving the religion. Here are seven major allegations from Tuesday's premiere episode. 1. Statutory rape went unreported to the police. Amy Scobee, who said she was in charge of Celebrity Centres, didn’t go to high school and became a member at 14.

The latest episode of the A&E docuseries introduced viewers to Brandon Reisdorf, a sufferer of mental illness who alleged he did not receive the proper care from members of the religious organization.

“From a psychiatry point of view, he had bipolar issues,” Brandon’s mother Lois, a Scientologist for 22 years, confided to the camera. “We didn’t even know that at that time. All we knew is that he was having problems. So even though we had left the Church, we were trying to handle it with Scientology.”

“The Scientologists don’t believe in mental conditions being treated with drugs,” Remini claimed in an interview. “They believe they have the answer, and so they will handle this disorder with Scientology auditing, assists, and or vitamins.”

Nadal saddened by alleged match-fixing

“They constantly invent new things,” Remini said. Kahn had to repeat "The Bridge" herself, but she became fed up with the constant pressure to pay more exorbitant fees. At one point, she alleged a fellow Scientologist charged her credit card without her knowing and said he did it because he needed to meet his financial goal for the church.

The first episode of Remini ’s new docuseries also addresses this topic, in telling the story of a woman named Amy Scobee. Scobee had joined Scientology at the age of 14, and alleges that she was sexually abused by a man, her boss in the organization, who was 35 at the time. USA Today asked the Church of Scientology to comment on these allegations ; the church responded to say that Scobee’s claims are false. 4) Remini says she knows that Scientology sounds bizarre, but also understands why it succeeds.

Remini’s partner for the project, Mike Rinder, alleged that the religion’s founder was the reason parishioners disagreed with psychiatry. “Scientology hates psychiatry so much because L. Ron Hubbard said that Scientologists should hate psychiatry,” Rinder claimed to the camera. “L. Ron Hubbard offered Dianetics (a book he penned) to the American Medical Association and the American Psychiatric Association in 1950, and they laughed at him. He then determined that they were the enemies of mankind.”

However, Scientology’s website explains its “objection to psychiatry does not stem from any desire to deny the insane treatment. Rather, the Church objects to the mistreatment of the insane…”

U.S. appeals court revives antitrust lawsuit against Apple

  U.S. appeals court revives antitrust lawsuit against Apple <p>iPhone app purchasers may sue Apple Inc (APPL.O) over allegations that the company monopolized the market for iPhone apps by not allowing users to purchase them outside the App Store, leading to higher prices, a U.S. appeals court ruled on Thursday.</p>The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruling revives a long-simmering legal challenge originally filed in 2012 taking aim at Apple’s practice of only allowing iPhones to run apps purchased from its own App Store. A group of iPhone users sued saying the Cupertino, California, company's practice was anticompetitive.

Leah Remini spoke very publicly about her time as a member of the Church of Scientology in her 2015 memoir Troublemaker, and now she is helping other former members tell their stories. In her new docu-series Leah Remini : Scientology and the Aftermath, the actress will sit down and speak with ex-Church members who claim they have been the victims of sexual assault and emotional and physical abuse. The trailer for the new program even features one man who claims that he was 'hammered' in the face by none other than David Miscavige, the leader of the Church.

Leah Remini , who wrote a memoir in 2015 about her decision to leave the Church of Scientology , premiered her new series on the topic on A&E Tuesday night. The series, Leah Remini : Scientology and the Aftermath, focuses on victims of the church’s alleged secretive abuse who are now speaking out about their experiences with the religion. Story continues below. For The King of Queens actress, who was a member of the church for more than 30 years, the series is a way to help her make amends for the damage she caused while being part of the church that, Remini says, she “promoted

“Being born into Scientology, it’s kind of passed down that psychiatry’s not the answer to any spiritual problems or mental problems or whatever,” Brandon told Remini and Rinder, “and so the Church gave me their solution to that problem, which is called the introspection rundown.” This process was defined in the docuseries as, “Scientology’s method of treating a psychotic episode wherein the subject is isolated then put through rigorous auditing.”

In a conversation with Remini and Rinder, Brandon claimed that he was at the home of two Scientologists trained in the process for approximately six weeks, and that he was watched “basically for 24-hours around the clock.”

“I was locked in a room for 24 hours a day,” Brandon shared, “experiencing craziness in my mind. It was just colors and pictures and hallucinations.”

He said the Church’s goal is, “to just let it go, and they claim (the episode will) run out eventually and then you’re fine again. It’s hard to explain. I should’ve been in a psychiatric hospital.”

At the time, Brandon’s bipolar disorder was not diagnosed.

Leah Remini is exposing shocking secrets from the Church of Scientology . In a new docu-series on A&E, “Leah Remini : Scientology and the Aftermath,” she dives into the underbelly of the powerful religion. “My whole life I was a very dedicated Scientologist . Allegations of abuse, both physically and sexually will be discussed in the upcoming series. “I was 14 when I started in Scientology . And, I had a boss who was 35 years old and we had sex. And, the organization didn’t tell my mother, they did not the police.

Leah Remini revealed some startling aspects of Scientology during a Reddit AMA promoting the premiere of her new A&E series, “Leah Remini : Scientology and the Aftermath,” on Tuesday. The AMA covered the actress’ 30 years of experiences as a member of the Church of Scientology and her ongoing mission since leaving the church behind to expose the organization for its alleged mistreatment, abuses, and suppression of its members and those who have left the church.

When Brandon chose to leave the Church after his parents were allegedly declared Suppressive People in 2016, his brother Craig remained a Scientologist. The idea of losing his sibling sent Brandon into a spiral, and he threw a hammer through a Scientology Church window.

Brandon said after the incident he was placed in a psychiatric ward for 19 days, where he reluctantly took medicine that helped in his recovery.

“I did protest taking the psychiatric drugs ‘cause I was still a bit brainwashed about it," he said. "They had to get a federal court order for me to take it and so I took the drugs after I lost that.”

The Church of Scientology discredits Brandon’s parents on a website, alleging they were removed from the organization “for dishonesty and unethical behavior.”

“Now, frustrated that their son Craig remains in the religion and that he refused to let them run his entire life, they are resorting to Leah Remini’s hate-filled reality TV show to lie,” the Church’s statement reads.

“Rather than accept responsibility as parents, the Reisdorfs use the program to offer excuses while allowing warped hatemongers Remini and Mike Rinder to actually try to blame their former religion for a violent attack against the Los Angeles Church by their son Brandon in which he was arrested and charged by authorities before pleading guilty.”
