    Mark "Marty" Rathbun - Former Inspector General of the Religious Technology Center

    Mark C. "Marty" Rathbun (born 1957) is a former senior executive of the Church of Scientology who last held the post of Inspector General of the Religious Technology Center (RTC), the organization that is responsible for the protection and enforcement of all Dianetics and Scientology copyrights and trademarks.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_Rathbun

    Mark "Marty" Rathbun is 54 years old and lives with his wife Monique in Ingleside on the Bay, Texas. Since April, Rathbun and his wife have been undergoing a daily siege by an intimidation squad sent to film them from just outside their house. It has been established now without any real doubt that this squad has been sent and is being directed by the Church of Scientology. Members of the squad have been flown in from around the country. They are being housed, equipped, fed, and if one whistleblowing videographer's testimony can be believed, paid well. The sheer cost of such an operation -- which includes the use of private investigators and local law firms -- has to be fairly staggering.

    I was a member of the Sea Organization for twenty-seven years. I learned how to audit and troubleshoot virtually any technical problem at every level of Scientology. For years prior to leaving the Church I was regularly called upon by its top-ranking members to resolve its toughest and, in many instances, most high profile cases.
    Having dug myself out of the dark pit where many who leave the Church land, I began lending a hand to others similarly situated.

    We still don't know why Marty and Mosey dropped their lawsuit against the COS. They were winning. Something happened, but I suppose it is not our business. It is just disappointing because it looked like they were going to win against the church.


    Adji, you are not forgotten and you are loved.

    Scn is a rabbit-hole. 5 ga-zillion YouTube videos (including a bizarre deposition by Marty and a frightening deposition by the PI's that followed Ron Miscavige), websites, blogs...I'm a "wog" (never-in) and I feel like the only thing I have left to learn is how to hold the cans and float my needle. The internet is a university of Scn info....which is what is ultimately bringing it down.

    There is so much evidence of people being brainwashed/beaten down by this CULT! People have been speaking out for years. I don't know what it's gonna take for the authorities authoritah's to actually DO something! I hope Leah can continue to use her voice as a platform and finally bring them down by getting their tax exemption taken away.

    Here is a article written in Vanity fair in 2012. VERY interesting.

    I don't know if people know this but Marty Rathbun still believes in Scientology, for the most part. Did you notice the shirts that these harassers wear? Squirrel Busters. A squirrel is someone who uses scientology tech outside of the CoS. Marty is still an auditor, former scientologists come to him to do that e-meter crap. He left because of Miscavige and thinks he is destroying CoS, but he would probably go back if Miscavige stepped down, was removed, or died.

    Marty was practicing as an indie for a while, but then started to slam/renounce Scn tech all together. He's been all over the board in the past year. For all we know he's now a devout Lutheran. And he'll be a devout believer in the Annunaki next week.

    Have you been watching his videos criticizing the Lawrence Wright anti Sci/Miscavage book and film? He has done a 180 about everything he was against. It's baffling.

    I don’t think that Marty Rathbun has returned to the Church of Scientology as an enforcer, but he has clearly changed his tune.

    Agreed, and he couldn't just pop back in without a massive sec check and loads of auditing anyway. Even if Davey boy and he are bosom buddies again, appearances must be kept up and the devout would expect Marty to be making amends LRH style.

    He can keep in touch with family outside as long as they don't speak ill of Scn. If you mean family inside, then yes, all formers lose family and all formers want desperately to talk to their family that are still in. But that's no excuse for what Marty has done to Mike and Paul Haggis, who were supposedly dear friends.
    The best explanation is that he & Mosey were about to open a gaping hole in Scn's ability to lean on the 1st Amendment, and Miscavige would pay just about anything to keep that from happening. If a payoff hadn't happened, why don't M&M hand over their financial records to Ray Jeffrey to prove they didn't stiff him?

    ETA-while noting the disconnection policy, Marty isn't unique:
    Bernie Headley has not seen his daughter Stephanie in 4,958 days.
    Brian Sheen has not seen his grandson Leo in 104 days.
    Clarissa Adams has not seen her parents Walter and Irmin Huber in 1,167 days.

    Joe Reaiche has not seen his daughter Alanna Masterson in 4,922 days

    Cindy Plahuta has not seen her daughter Kara in 2,382 days.
    Claire Headley has not seen her mother Gen in 2,357 days.
    Ramana Dienes-Browning has not seen her mother Jancis in 713 days.
