    I’ve never met Marty Rathbun, but I know people who know him. My impression of following Marty Rathbun (for many years) is that he doesn’t like drama. As an ex-Scientologist, his focus is the truth, without drama. He will be truthful, even if that means being un-supportive of questionable tactics by another anti-Scientologist (Rinder, Remini, etc).

    I believe there is no way Marty Rathbun is back in the clutches of Co$. He wouldn’t go back, and they wouldn’t take him back.

    Think about it… if he was accepted back with Co$, they would insist that he publicly support Co$. I haven’t seen that happening.

    Read some of his blog. Rathbun is a fair person, so any seeming ‘defense’ of Co$ is merely a desire to present the facts and to not sensationalize.

    Not all anti-Scientologists are in the same camp. This video of Rathbun explains the predicament of differing views by anti-Scientologists:

    I'm glad she has spoken out about this organization.......Louis Theroux's documentary is very illuminating (he did a deep dive on Scientology.)

    Just keep reading, and compare this outfit to other churches & other cults.

    Most cults operate on a shoestring budget and cannot attract wealthy people, own massive properties in several states (and countries,) and have highly trained security forces. Public figures who are members have disappeared.

    Churches, take your pick of differences. My denomination (PCUSA) has a lifetime contract, marriage, and recognizes a civil dissolution of that contract. Ordination as a pastor or elder or deacon is a lifetime contract, which can be dissolved by the parties.

    No billion-year contracts for Presbyterians....

    Good post!
    My denomination is United Methodist. The local UMC church where I am a member, is a "Reconciling Church" which means open and receiving to LGBGT which would include their memberships, marriages, becoming and serving as clergy, etc. etc., and I am proud to say it.
    I will add that we are asked to pledge contributions each year to the church, but if we don't pledge or if we can't fulfill our pledges, nothing horrible happens.
    We recognize the same marriage contract/dissolution and ordination as PCUSA. Ordination requires a special post college-grad degree similar to a Masters.
    And yeah, no billion-year contracts for U.Methodists, either.
    SMH.
