Leah Remini on Leaving Scientology: "I'm Not About to Shut Up"

Leah Remini is continuing to speak out about her split from the Church of Scientology, despite efforts on the part of church leaders to silence the actress. "I believe that people should be able to question things," Remini tells People. "No one is going to tell me how I need to think, no one is going to tell me who I can, and cannot, talk to."

Leah Remini quits Scientology, thanks fans for support

Remini announced she was quitting Scientology earlier this month, claiming she had been subjected to years of "thought modification" and "interrogations." The Church of Scientology has denied her accusations.

TheKing of Queens and Family Tools star fell out of favor with the church in part because she questioned the leadership of highest-ranking member David Miscavige and challenged the church's policy to isolate its members from their families.

"I believe that people should value family, and value friendships, and hold those things sacrosanct," Remini says. "It doesn't matter, it could be anything. I thought about the family being broken up for some other cause, and I'm not about to shut up."

Miscavige's niece, Jenna Miscavige Hill, has spoken out in support of Remini. Hill left the church in 2005.
