Church of Scientology

BLASTS LEAH REMINI

Over Missing Person Report

The Church of Scientology is spewing venom at Leah Remini for daring to file a report with the LAPD ... claiming the wife of Scientology leader David Miscavige is missing.

A Church rep claims Leah cooked up the allegation "with unemployed, anti-religious zealots."

Leah -- who broke ties with Scientology last month -- was alarmed that Shelly Miscavige hasn't been seen publicly in 6 years.  The LAPD closed out its investigation last night, and as TMZ first reported, cops say they had a face to face with Shelly.  They did not indicate if they probed as to whether Shelly was being held against her will.

The Church rep calls Leah's actions "an inexcusable distraction for the LAPD." 

And the Church took this shot:  "Sadly, rather than move on with her life and career, Ms. Remini has aligned herself with a handful of untrustworthy, lunatic tabloid sources who obsessively harass the Church to advance their selfish agendas."

Someone is pissed.

All they have to do is produce the wife. The more they talk crap but the wife doesn't show up, the more people will wonder where the wife is and what happened to her.

Leah needs to be brought up on charges. I agree that Scientologists are nutjobs but I have to say that former Scientologists are as nutty.

Scientology wastes the LAPD's time constantly. They fabricate crimes so that people will be investigated loudly so that they stop protesting or speaking out. Google "fair game"

Hope she doesn't wake up to find Mr. Cruise standing at the foot of her bed some night. He's kinda scary looking in his black turtleneck :D

"with unemployed, anti-religious zealots." Add in gay and fat, and that describes many of the commenters here.

Please, don't call this criminal organization a church, these individuals are not church-goers and the only thing in the world that drives them is greed not faith.

I could care less of their beliefs, it's what they do to their own people that is sick! ACTORS/CELEBRITIES who endorse this cult has blood on their hands! (also what religion has a celebrity center? come on!) they have blood on their hands for people not getting correct medical treatment and dying, their "leader" beats people and keeps them locked up, they pay people at their "Sea Org" what.... 17 cents an hr? Get your head out of the sand people! Believe in aliens if you want, that's fine by me, but the other stuff is sick! ALL CAN BE VERIFIED by court papers in the past and present - yet we take their word on Shelly?? Oh and yeah, I'll say it again LAPD IS CORRUPT!

Not a religious person myself, so perhaps I can't understand, but why would you join Scientology if not for a financial incentive? All of these actors cannot be that blind.

So....where is Shelly? Quickest way to stop this rumor is to have the woman show her face.

If this woman would have just gone to Leah Remini and said, "Thanks for the concern, but I am fine", then all of this could have been avoided.

TMZ needs to put up a Scientology poll. Those in favor of Leah vs those not. It will be 99% to 1% in favor.

How do the police know it was her? Did they do an DNA test? Did they meet with her off site (as in AT the police station) without an Members present?
