HBO's explosive Scientology documentary, "Going Clear," has shed a new light on the controversial church.In the film, director Alex Gibney is especially critical of famous church members Tom Cruise and John Travolta for allegedly turning a blind eye to the reported harassment suffered by church members.“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," the actress told People Magazine."I thought about the family being broken up for some other cause, and I’m not about to shut up.” Her outspokenness has some other ex-Scientologists piping up too.The Ethics Officers are working overtime, but Miscavige’s personal troops, the ‘OT Ambassadors,’ are also being sent forth to do battle with the forces of evil,” he wrote, referring to the Scientology term “Operating Thetan,” which involves members achieving a number of different levels.
