Elisabeth Moss reportedly stayed true to her Scientology roots with that Emmys f-bomb

Few religions sanction swearing on the reg, but Scientology is not one of them.

According to
The Hollywood Reporter

, Elisabeth Moss’s Emmys speech, which started with a loud f-bomb, was true to her status as a scientologist — in fact, it’s “almost a sacrament.”

“Scientologists are urged to communicate with ‘average people,’ and to do so effectively you have to ‘go down the tone scale,'” former Scientologist and friend of Moss’s from the church TIziano Lugli
told THR

.

“So they all use ‘fuck, fuck, fuck’ every time they talk. It’s fascinating. The quote-unquote philosophy behind it is you match the tone level in order to communicate on the same level of the people with whom you’re communicating. If you’re too ‘high-tone,’ people will not understand you.”

In other words, Moss threw out those f-bombs partly due to shock and adrenaline, and partly to communicate with normals like us. (Moss’ rep had no comment.)

“There’s no question that Scientology has this kind of throwback, hard-smoking, curse-language culture that dates to Hubbard being a Navy guy,” journalist Tony Ortega said in the article
. “Cursing in Scientology is almost a sacrament.”

Scientologists, according to Ortega, curse like sailors — because it came out of the Sea Org, a class of clergy literally composed of sailors.

Yet even within former Scientologists, the swearing is so ingrained that few are clear
as to why it’s so pervasive. The tone scale isn’t immediate, common knowledge, and most just assume prominent scientologists like Tom Cruise
swear for fun.

And here we thought Moss was just trying to prove the Eyes wrong.
