Marty Rathbun

In Defense of Marty Rathbun

Marty Rathbun is as flawed as any one of us. And no one has been a bigger critic of him than I have been. But Marty Rathbun has achieved as much or more than any other critic of Scientology in its entire history – going all the way back to Joseph Winter.

Marty and Monique Rathbun

Is the Take-Down of Mark & Monique Rathbun Complete?

After throwing darts in every direction, the bumbling duo of Tony Ortega and his anonymous sidekick “TexasLawyer” continue their speculation even after the last papers have been filed in the Monique Rathbun legal case, leaving their “commenting community” just as vengeful and confused as they were before. Obviously, Monique and Marty Rathbun have not done […]

Karen De La Carriere Caught Lying Again

A couple of weeks ago it was revealed that fanatical supporters of Mike Rinder and Leah Remini fair-gamed Monique Rathbun’s new bakery business. Marty Rathbun, myself and others showed how these anti-Scientology fair game activities were planned and carried out in Karen De La Carriere’s secret Facebook group “The Outer Banks”.

Scientology: It’s Always Worse Than You Think

The exposure of Scientology is a repetitive business. Every year, there are new people coming out of the Church who, no matter how highly trained as an auditor, no matter how many years they’ve spent on staff or in the Sea Org, know very little about the actual subject of Scientology and what it really […]

One Moon

It is said that there is only one moon. It is also said that there are as many moons as there are individuals who are looking at it. Maybe there is one objective reality called The Moon. But I don’t think that even Neil Armstrong has seen it. – Alanzo

Haydn James: The Outer Banks

Scientologist Haydn James on Why Scientology Does Not Work

Mike Rinder posted an article on his blog today that Karen DeLacarriere gave to him from “The Outer Banks”, a super-secret Facebook group that I was joined into without my permission, and then kicked out of because it’s only for the “Key Players”. The guy who kicked me out, Ronn Stacy, told me this three […]

Sacred Cows + Siege Mentality = Sheeple

Sheeple. An actual mathematical formula for them. I’m not kidding. I think Carl Sagan wrote about it once: Ask Neil Degrasse Tyson. It describes a fundamental property of all human groups: not just Scientists and Scientologists. As social animals, human beings set up rules, both tacit and expressed, to coordinate their efforts in pursuit of […]

My Mind is Goin Through Them Changes

It never stops, no matter what cult you’ve been in, or how old you get. This is what Buddy Miles had to say about it a few decades ago. We are not rational animals, no matter what ideal L Ron Hubbard, or greek philosopher, tried to force you to accept. The reactive mind was never […]

4 Steps to Stop Thinking and Feeling With Scientology

Scientology, as created and maintained by L Ron Hubbard, seeks to take over and dictate every thing that the Scientologist thinks and feels. If you were ever a fervent, KSW believing Scientologist, then you probably adopted Scientology to do your thinking and feeling for you. As a result, you may have had difficulty dismantling this […]

Re-Evaluating My Wins in Scientology

Re-Evaluating My Wins In Scientology

The other day, more than 14 years after leaving Scientology, I realized that one of the biggest wins I had in Scientology might not have been as valuable as I’ve been thinking it was. In the 1980’s I was the Executive Director of the Peoria, Illinois Mission. As ED Peoria, I’d written High Crime Reports […]

Kindness vs Cruelty Smackdown on the Post-Scientology Internet

I recently pissed off a Fierce Anti-Scientology Internet Warrior about her use of cruelty. I asked her a lot of questions to try to understand exactly how she thought about it. From what I could gather, I found that our motivations to be cruel to others on the Internet were very similar. I found that, […]

How Big is Scientology – Really?

Mike Rinder posted a graphic which proves that the Church of Scientology lies to the world about their size, and the rate of their growth. They, in fact, are shrinking, while they tell the world, and the world’s media, that they are growing. Jefferson Hawkins of SkyHawk Studios created this graphic from statistical data that […]

Non-Confront of LRH Can Lead to Using Scientology to Harm Others

Here’s how: L Ron Hubbard wrote some very abusive technology meant to do others harm. He even taught Scientologists to never fear to hurt others in a “just cause”. Any time I see a group of Independent Scientologists who refuse to allow LRH to be criticized, and can not acknowledge legitimate criticism of LRH, I […]
