The religion of Scientology has been capturing tabloid interest for many years now. Before, it was just due to some outside speculations of what the church does inside, but now, people who have been raised in the religion that the famous actor, Tom Cruise, is in, are speaking out about their stories and why the religion must be deeply investigated.

Although the actress had since left the church after Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes’ wedding happened, she was met with negative comments and reaction when she asked about where the wife of the church leader David Miscavige is.

Since her friends from the religious group had promptly disconnected from her, she was able to dive into the biographical memoir and has received favorable reviews that made her continue in the show’s second season. In it, she hopes it will raise more awareness and publicize more pieces of evidence to allow a number of people to understand the abuses going on in its church.
