… AND STILL DOES
It is advised that you read the following articles which give the documented facts of Rathbun’s squirrel activities which led to his removal and expulsion from the Church:
And You Wonder Why Marty Rathbun Attacks the Church?
As further background to what you are about to read, I quote Rathbun’s note written in 2001:
“It started with me blowing the Sea Org on November, 1993. I took advantage of a number of false reports I had put in place over years giving a false picture as to my role in handling external attacks and the IRS in particular. … The web of lies…is so complex it would take pages to recount. Suffice it to say refer to a passage from Science of Survival:
‘At 1.1 truth receives her severest drubbing; for here truth is confused, upset, used and twisted, hidden for fear somebody may make retaliation, until one understands that data from his level of the Tone Scale has only two purposes: to wreak the most harm upon others and secure the greatest safety for self. Here we have lies used to hide lies amid the most frantic protestations of honesty and noisy advertising campaign about the ethics of the speaker. Beneath the façade of honor, honesty, ethics and ‘one’s sacred word.’ One is apt to find a writhing cesspool of vicious and malicious lies calculated to do the greatest possible harm.’”
“I then engaged in a campaign to covertly and systematically take out and undermine any executive or staff who might expose me.”
Why would Rathbun go to such lengths to weave a complex web of lies as to his “role in handling external attacks and the IRS in particular?” What was he hiding? What had he done to cover up with a web of lies? What was so precious that he would then engage in a 10-year campaign to covertly and systematically take out and undermine any executive or staff who might expose him?
Why is he still lying to this day by playing himself up to rumormongering media as to his role in the IRS religious recognition of the Church? When all he did was carry bags and was otherwise mum.
As to why, we still haven’t uncovered all, but what we have found as been made known in previous articles. We do know this: Rathbun is now all friends and buddy-buddy with numerous past attackers of the Church and I am specifically referring to those attackers prior to 1993. In fact, they are giving him support.
And so it was in November 1993, just weeks after the IRS religious recognition, one of the greatest victories in the history of the Church, Rathbun up and blew. He took off because of some “complex web of lies.” He later returned to staff and for the next 10 years proceeded to carry out his “campaign to covertly and systematically take out and undermine any executive or staff who might expose me.”
While he was on the road during his desertion, traveling from town to town, bar to bar, as he put it, he wrote some notes.
I only present this as further evidence of his mental state and his continuous fight and war with anyone and everyone. To quote from Rathbun’s journal:
“I have never produced anything but chaos.”
“I created all [legal] losses.”
“One has to be constantly alert and constantly willing to create as much havoc as possible with the enemy to make it on those lines.
“I got to the point where I was constantly pushing against the CI [counter intention] of the enemy—always anxious I would miss an opportunity to strike a fatal blow.
“I guess my being in a tough guy valence was correct. I developed it for fear of ever being weak at the right moment.
“The other night I had several beers in a bar and couldn’t get anyone to fight. I wondered why and concluded my battle scars show. I’ll fight to the death and I guess it shows.
“And when the ridge from the enemy drops—i.e. IRS, I don’t know what to do. I’m primed to fight. And I guess I don’t know what to do without the enemy staring me in the face. I suppose something—but I’m not sure what it is.”
