7:41 am
mother, better sister, better friend. talking to ellen on the rift of speaking out. >> my story pales in comparison to what happens to other people. hue people are bulied into silence. we don't have 3 billion dollars to protect ourselves. what i have is i'm an actress and able to speak. >> in a statement, the church of scientology strongly denied her claims stating in part leah remini needs toe for her personal and professional setbacks and needs to fight for her own life. >> the church of scientology has created friends and foes. >> good morning. good to see you. i was thinking about this. you wrote your book and told
7:42 am
public battle with scientology. >> right. >> why? >> i think it's important. i sat back when i left the church and wrote my book and i thought it was done. i was watching what was happening to former members and former high ranking clergy of the church and watching what the church was doing in response. i felt i had a responsibility to help out where i could. i'm not a big fan of bullies. i was a fighter in the church. this is what they taught me so i will continue my fight. i'm on the right side of that fight right now. i want to send a message i'm not going sit back and allow it to go on. people are talking about their experiences of physical abuse and mental abuse. to be called a liar and victimize victims is not okay with me. >> obviously, the church denies the allegations.
7:43 am
who is this for? >> it's for the victims. for the people who have spoken out but also for the people who maybe don't have the strength to fight, feel they don't have a voice. it doesn't just have to be -- i'm getting a thumbs up, back at you. i want to give people strength, not just with this organization but with any bully. i just hope that's what the message is. >> thest what happened to you? you were a member of this church since you were a little girl. >> most of my life. >> what was it like to leave? >> it's difficult to leave. i'm lucky because i am an actress and i have a lot of support. for me, it pales in comparison to former high ranking executives had to deal with and parishioners had to deal with and average everyday
7:44 am
to this and now they're suffering for speaking out. >> i think that's something a lot of people who hear about this think i don't understand, if you're in any other church, you don't want to be in it anymore, you just leave. that's it. >> that's the difference here. if you speak out, you're labelled an enemy to the church and the church has policies on how to deal with its enemies and they go after them. it's in their own policies. so they don't know any different church. i understand that and have compassion for it. you do become a person who's very hateful and you're very judgmental towards any who isn't a scientologist. a critic of scientology is dealt with in a very specific way. that is unlike a real church. >> the church says it doesn't disconnect families or encourage people. >> well, they're sly. they are sly in that they are
7:45 am
of disconnection, as it's categorized in the press because the press doesn't know. if you're not in it your whole life you don't actually know the inner workings of their policies and their policy is very specific about how you deal with someone who has spoken out about the church of scientology and there is no option but to disconnect or you will get kicked out of the church. for members who were in it their holes lives, this is an everyday proposition, a quarter of average parishioners. the dedication it takes to be a scientologist is a lot. it's not easy to just walk away. most people say why not just get up and leave. you're leaving everything you've ever known, you're giing up your whole life because that is what it takes to be a scientologist and you're going to be losing your family because most of your family and friends are scientologists. >> the church has issued
7:46 am
about this documentary. i know you're familiar with them because your lawyer wrote back to them and said you inflicted damage on leah and asked for $1.5 million and the church said that amount is for extortion. we put the whole thing on for fairness. what do you say to that accusation you're in it for money? >> i'm not going to get a dime. i've given millions to the church and they amassed$3 billion. i think t organization, how they respond to its critics. it's not just me. it's any who has spoken out. any is called a liar, everyone is called an apostate and everyone is called the same thing. i'm in good company. they did to it anderson cooper and ellis gibney and award winning filmmaker, paul hagitz, oscar winner. i'm in good company. it say morse about them than me.
7:47 am
do this fight. >> yeah. i tell annie everyday i don't know if i want to do this. it's not an easy thing to do but i think it's the right thing to do. i'm not talking about myself, i'm talking about its victims and i feel it's an important message and feel this is the path i'm supposed to be on at this point in my life. >> leah remini. thanks for being here. the documentary airs tomorrow night on just ahead what you should never bring to work if you want your co-work others to have a
