For most of Leah Remini's life, she was a part of the Church of Scientology. But in 2013, she left the organization and has since been a vocal opponent to the church and its practices.

In 2015 she released her Scientology tell-all, detailing horrific accounts she experienced while a member of the Church.

Including many uncomfortable moments with the Scientology king, Tom Cruise and the Church's attempt to make her bestie, Jennifer Lopez, a member.

Now, Remini is continuing her condemnation of the Church with a new A&E docu-series, "Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath."

The docu-series features interviews from many former Scientology members who blame the church for their experiences with abuse, deceit, and sexual assault. The church is not sitting idly by as the "King of Queens" star continues to air her personal grievances and those of many former members. 

A spokesperson for the Church publicly denounced Remini and insulted her in a statement released to E! News

"Desperate for attention with an acting career stuck in a nearly decade-long tailspin, Leah Remini needs to move on with her life. Instead, she seeks publicity by maliciously spreading lies about the Church using the same handful of bitter zealots who were kicked out years ago for chronic dishonesty and corruption and whose false claims the Church refuted years ago, including through judicial decisions."

But Remini remains committed in outing the church for its abuse of power.

She admitted that there can be severe repercussions for speaking out, but after hearing the experiences of others who'd left the Church, she felt it was her obligation to be vocal.

"I was watching high executives, former executives of the Church leaving and speaking out about abuses and things that they've experienced while working for the Church, and I saw how the church reacted. I felt I had a responsibility to say, 'I'm not going to allow you to bully these people who were very brave to come out and tell their stories,'" she told Ellen. "And that's from executives. There are just average parishioners like me who leave and speak out about what they've experienced. They lose their family. The Church goes after their family to shun their family, oftentimes. I'm very lucky that that didn't happen to me. My family chose me."

Using her status, she's become the voice for those who aren't in as fortunate positions as herself.

"But again, my story pales in comparison to what happened to other people, how people are bullied into silence. We don't have $3 billion to protect ourselves, right? So, what I have is I'm an actress, and I'm able to speak, and I'm able to give a voice to people who might not have an "Ellen" to go on," she explained. "For that, I feel lucky and I feel blessed. That's kind of what my path is right now."

The series premieres November 29 at 10 p.m. on A&E.
