I’ve been thinking of writing something on this subject for a while. I began thinking about it when I saw a Twitter post on Scientology’s “STAND” hate site saying that Leah Remini was “stripping Scientologists of their First Amendment rights of free speech.

And in fact, they SHOULD be better at speaking than others since one of the first “Grade Chart” levels any Scientologist attains is Grade Zero – a “Communications Release,” who, according to Scientology’s literature, attains the ability to “Communicate with anyone on any subject.” Well, if Scientologists are experts at communication and are able to communicate with anyone on any subject, and are perfectly free to speak, then that begs the question:
