On February 11 Tony Ortega penned a heartfelt tribute to former Scientologist Ned McCrink who died of suicide.
Leah Remini tweeted a link to Ortega’s article accompanied by several posts describing McCrink’s life.
Here are her tweets:
Scientology’s twisted response is to accuse her of exploiting a suicide to spread bigotry and hate, neither of which can legitimately be found in Remini’s tweets. In fact she clearly states she cannot say for sure whether Scientology played a part in Ned’s suicide.
Where is the bigotry in Leah Remini’s tweets?
Tony Ortega’s eulogy of Ned McCrink showed nothing but kindness and sadness at his loss. Remini’s tweets only highlighted the points Ortega made. Information that came both from personal experience from Ned’s friends and from McCrink himself.
No lies. No harassment. No hate. No bigotry.
So where can the exploitation of a fatal tragedy be seen?
Exploitation of vulnerable people who struggle with mental illness is hate.
This is what hate, harassment and intolerance look like.
How low is this most ethical of religions willing to go in their vicious psychological terrorism against their former members?
Always, always consider the source.
