Ran across this clickbait item and to me it seems just about every point about Scientology seems to have a parallel with Mormonism. Sometimes the words are just changed, or sometime there the same like "disconnection" from apostates (recall Clayton's 2017 BYU commencement speech).

Would love to see a Leah Remini-type in Mormonism to expose tscc for what it really is!

I watched most of the Remini episodes. I found I could only watch one at a time--not several back-to-back on demand. To say that I was triggered would be an understatement. The parallels are so consistently strong I found my blood pressure going sky high. How could I have been so stupid to have joined Mormonism?

You said it, Boner. I had the same experience watching Ms. Remini's show. Take care, my brother. -edz

Leah Remini and Steven Hassan are personal heroes of mine. I've met Steven, and I hope to meet Leah some day.

19th Century Mormonism had a number of individuals who "exposed" it in the same fashion as Remini has Scientology and Hassan has the Unification Church.

Some names to look for are William and Wilson Law, John Hyde, the Stenhouses, Ann Eliza Webb Young, and others...

Have no idea who the creators of this website are, but found this list Of cults in America to be pretty accurate. What do you think?

I could not sop watching the Leah Remini Scientology episodes. They didn't trigger me. It was validating. I was smart to leave. I was nodding my head constantly seeing the correlation between the two "religions". The LDS church truly is Scientology light.
