It states: “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem. “During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”

The other proteins and formaldehyde serve to activate the immune system and open up the blood-brain barrier. This is NOT a good thing."

Leah Remini reveals she left Scientology for her daughter's sake

In 2013, after more than 30 years as member of the Church of Scientology, Leah Remini made headlines with her decision to leave the religious organization behind. Now Remini's finally ready to reveal what, or rather who, motivated her to make the move — her 9-year-old daughter, Sofia.

“She was getting to the age where the acclimation into the Church would have to start,”
she explained in an interview with BuzzFeed.

For the actress, memories of her own early years in Scientology made that a difficult prospect to face.

“We were working from morning until night with barely any schooling,” she said of her experience. “There was no saying no. There was no being tired. There was no, ‘I’m a little girl who just lost her father and everything I’ve ever known.’ There was only, ‘Get it done.’”

And according to the star, "it" was no small job.

“If the church needed a ballroom wall knocked down, you made it happen because there were heavy repercussions if you didn’t,” Remini said.

Those tough times damaged her relationship with her own mother, who was often too busy with her role in the Church to be there for her child.

“I started thinking of my own childhood and how I grew up resenting my mother because she was never home,” Remini recalled. “It’s funny; somehow my father, the guy who left his kids and never paid child support, was excluded from my resentment and I grew up resenting my mother for not being home to make food, like all my friends’ moms were. But my mom thought she was doing something good; she thought she was helping the planet. That’s what the Church tells you.”

Ultimately "The Exes" actress didn't want history to repeat itself.

"In my house, it’s family first — but I was spending most of my time at the Church," she said. "So, I was saying ‘family first,’ but I wasn’t showing that. I didn’t like the message that sent my daughter."

So she ended her affiliation with Scientology, and with that, inadvertently ended her relationship with many longtime members the Church. But she didn't lose her relationship with her mother. That one just got stronger.

“The fact my mother stood by me after all her years in the Church totally took away any resentment I may have been harboring,” she said. “When it mattered the most, my mother was there for me."

From my experiences going to these organized, Babel church buildings - can't help but thinking that I went through the SAME thing that these people like Remini went through with their respective cults.

However you look at it, these Babel "Christian" church buildings system is the same thing, why? B/c that's all they get you to do - work, Work, WORK, and on and on and on. They may not be as abusive and blatant like these other cults like Scientology, but nonetheless they are very crafty in terms of knowing how to manipulate your guilt and weak flesh to make you put in so many hours of works-based nonsense, while these hireling pastors are building up their wealth and "prestige" for themselves, all at the expense of their flocks.

You just don't see any "The just shall live by faith..." in any of these systems.
