Elisabeth Moss is known for being pretty quiet when it comes to her involvement in the controversial religion Scientology.
But Moss’ religious beliefs have recently become a topic of conversation, as former Scientologist Leah Remini has been publicly questioning Moss on the subject.
“I don’t hold anything against Elisabeth Moss other than she’s continuing to support a group that is abusive and destroying families,” said Remini in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
Despite all of the recent public discussion, mainly brought about by Remini, Moss has continued to remain silent about her beliefs. But when fan left a comment about Scientology on one of Moss’ Instagram photos Wednesday, the actress responded.
The Instagram user moelybanks commented on the above photo, questioning whether or not “The Handmaid’s Tale” made Moss “think twice about Scientolgy.” Moelybanks wrote:
“Love this adaptation so much. Question though, does it make you think twice about Scientology? Both Gilead and Scientology both believe that all outside sources (aka news) are wrong or evil… it’s just very interesting.”
Moss then responded to the Instagrammer. Moss wrote:
“That’s actually not true at all about Scientology. Religious freedom and tolerance and understanding the truth and equal rights for every race, religion and creed are extremely important to me. The most important things to me probably. And so Gilead and THT hit me on a very personal level. Thanks for the interesting question!”
So it seems that Moss’ newest role has not shaken her faith in Scientology at all.
