Former Scientologist explains why Scientology is not a religion

Actress Leah Remini describes the difference between Scientology and other religions

Leah Remini, who was on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert earlier this month, spoke about what differentiates Scientology from other religions.

Remini left Scientology in 2013 and has been an outspoken critic of the Church of Scientology ever since.

During the interview with Stephen Colbert, Remini was asked why she felt Scientology was not a religion.

“A system of thought, even if it’s destructive […] how is that less of a religion than […] my belief in angels,” Colbert probed Remini.

“You can choose to believe or not believe in angels,” Remini responded.

“Scientology is a business. You have to pay before you go up the chart of Scientology. By the end of this Scientology bridge, you’re in it a half-a-million dollars.”

“I have an issue with calling it another religion,” the 47-year-old former King of Queens star further added.

Remini reassured Colbert he should not feel bad for believing in angels.

“Don’t continue to put yourself in the same category [as Scientology] because it’s very different,” she said.

Watch the video above for the enthralling discussion, which ends with Remini sounding agitated with Colbert for “toeing the line.”
