Hello! I'm Ashley.

I'm passionate about loving Jesus and partnering with my husband in bring the flavor of His kingdom to the world. I seek to do this through promoting truth-seeking expeditions, advocating gender equality, educating the Church on abuse, and aiding the rescue of men, women and children from spiritual, emotional and physical poverty.

Welcome back to Christian Feminism Weekly with Ashley and Charlie!

The Church of Scientology has been in the news quite a bit lately due to Leah Remini's mini documentary series exposing the abuse that happens in the church (or cult). This week, Charlie and I are discussing the Church of Scientology and how it is similar to many Christian churches. 

"What really fascinates me is that I see Christians posting online and on social media about Scientology and how terrible it. I see that they are recognizing the abuse and the manipulation in The Church of Scientology but it seems to me that they are ignoring what is happening in Christian Churches. Because it's interesting, as Ashley said, a lot of the same things happening in Scientology are happening in the Christian Church as well."
