[...]. I don't know how far she's gone up The Bridge, but if she's one of the 90% who haven't reached OT3, she likely doesn't know better (bear in mind, the Co$ insists that converts must learn about their new doctrine only at the speed they're willing to spoon-feed it to them, a term they call Gradient) and the higher-ups won't punish her for it, or if she has, they're probably okay with allowing it because it reinforces the claim that Scientology is compatible with all other religions.

Or maybe, since she hasn't done much since, she's currently stuck in The Hole for violating Miscaviage's whims.

It seems that all I had to do was to Google my question because other people were asking this, and Tony Ortega gave an answer a few years ago when the movie came out, and it seems that my hunch how "money is more important than Scientology integrity" was on the right track, because she already passed OT3:

Quote:We’re starting to get questions from readers about Erika Christensen playing a Christian convert in the movie The Case for Christ, which opened in theaters Friday.

Well, whatever you think of the movie, what is a Scientologist doing in it playing a Christian convert? As Thompson points out in his review, it’s an “amusing” bit of casting to put in it an actress who belongs to a church that considers Jesus Christ a figment of the imagination.

And part of that material they have to focus on once they pass through what’s called OT 3 — which Christensen has completed — is to learn that L. Ron Hubbard, in his own handwriting, described Christianity and the other world’s religions as false information that had been implanted in our minds millions of years ago.

So if that’s the case, how does a Scientology actress get away with appearing in a film that’s obviously meant to promote Christianity?

Once again, we will point out something we have to repeat again and again to readers: Scientology Rule No. 1 is that its celebrities can break all the rules.

The church will be thrilled that Christensen is earning a paycheck, and it wouldn’t dare tell her not to appear in such a film. Meanwhile, as she has many times before, Christensen herself will say that generally, Scientologists can also be Christians or Jews or Muslims.

This. Is. A. Lie.

But lying is practically a sacrament in Scientology, so Erika won’t be in any trouble for it. [And lying isn't a sacrament in Christianity? Has he watched "Case for Christ" like when they say to the audience how all Jesus' apostles died for him - that was a big fat lie.]

teachings of the Bible are so muddled and self-contradictory that it was possible for Christians to happily burn heretics alive for five long centuries. It was even possible for the most venerated patriarchs of the Church, like St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas, to conclude that heretics should be tortured (Augustine) or killed outright (Aquinas). Martin Luther and John Calvin advocated the wholesale murder of heretics, apostates, Jews, and witches. - Sam Harris, "Letter To A Christian Nation"
