Famous Ex-Scientologists

Leah Remini's A Hero

8/10/2013 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Leah Remini
is the new QUEEN of the ex-Scientologists -- according to two famous defectors ... because she had the iron gonads to stand up to the Church.

As you know ... Leah filed a missing person's report with the LAPD ... claiming Shelly Miscavige, the wife of Scientology leader David Miscavige ... hadn't been seen for 6 years.  Detectives found Shelly and determined she's fine.

Marc and Claire Headley -- two outspoken, former high-ranking Scientologists are praising Leah for her testicular fortitude. Claire tells us, "Shelly was seen for the first time in 7 years. At least we know she's alive."

Claire is skeptical that Shelly is exercising free will, and believes the outreach by Leah will show Shelly that people care about her "on the outside."

Marc believes Shelly was "trotted out" to LAPD officers by Scientology handlers, but a source connected to the Church tells TMZ that's ridiculous.  The LAPD also tells TMZ ... they have concluded Shelly is not being held against her will.

Unfortunately the "Shelly Miscavige" that has so miraculously reappeared on the planet Teegeeack recently (mere hours after an official police inquiry was filed by a celebrity apostate) following years of legitimate public concern regarding her mysterious disappearance has clearly been allowed by the LAPD to return to her captors, unvetted. Of course we're to expect that this "Shelly 2.0" will faithfully back up the CO$ because she's clearly been mind-raped to believe that she's doing mankind an eternal service by preserving L Ron's "fiction" for all post-apocalypse society... and that's exactly what she's been doing all this time! Don't be fooled by the unsubstantiated stories of her disappearance... the LAPD clearly wasn't!!! She obviously hasn't been under any mental or physical duress, she's been happily etching all of that "life-saving" absurdist fictional dross onto atomic-resistant plates so that the future of mankind can ALSO benefit from the virtues of invasive auditing procedures, hazardous sauna purification, outrageous behavior modification, and criminal disconnection; to be preserved alongside the core Scientology tenets of slave labor and forced abortion, naturally! I would also mention the preservation of the so-called "esoteric" scriptures (per Scientology proper) but I wouldn't want any low ranking parishioners reading this to catch their death from pneumonia by hearing about Xenu and his accompanying space opera... so I won't! But come on guys, it's only a couple hundred thou$$$and up that step on the bridge! Don't be cheap... your "church" is under attack right now and needs ALL of your $$$ to bankroll attorneys, law enforcement, and government officials in order to ensure that we can clear all of mankind of its clam traumas until the end of time! You can thank Shelly Miscavige for all that hard work and dedication... AND THE LAPD FOR NOT ASKING ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT HER "DISAPPEARANCE!!!"

Oh look --- according to, LAPD's Gerald Chaleff is in bed with scientology! What a shocker.

"Chaleff, formerly Scientology Inc lead paid lying mouthpiece…uh, lawyer, is actually on staff now for the LAPD as a lawyer and member of the command team. (1) Some consider him in the #2 position in the LAPD. He formerly was the president of the LAPD police commission before Mayor Riordan fired his butt in 2001. Apparently he held that position the same time he was lead counsel for Scientology Inc. "

►"The LAPD also tells TMZ ... they have concluded Shelly is not being held against her will."◄

BUT WAIT, TMZ just said in another story that...

"One question we asked that we could not get answered ... Did cops determine Shelly was or was not being held against her will?"

So TMZ which is it?

From what I have read on Scientology and the billions of money and global real estate they have, and how they stalk and intimidate members. Really horrific stuff! They tap phone lines, have survallience everywhere, on and on. The only reason they became a "church" was to get out of paying taxes. Landmark court case. They also believe they are above the law. One can only hope they leave Leah alone and let her perform on the show without creating underground problems....
