Mark Marty Rathbun Thinks He’s Always Right

Mark Marty Rathbun is ready to implode under the weight of his own self-centeredness. He puts on a front that he is an extremely busy man, and he pushes that image as hard as he can.

The truth about Mark Rathbun is that he greatly exaggerates his own self importance. In the world of Rathbun, he can do no wrong. Nothing is ever his fault and Rathbun pulls all the strings.

Any sane person can take a simple moment of self reflection and realize where one has made mistakes along their path. Rathbun is incapable of this action, and only defends his words and actions no matter how insane.

Marty Rathbun lives in his own delusional, self absorbed world where he can do no wrong.

The Rat Mark Marty Rathbun

Marty Rathbun’s internet postings follow a predictable pattern.
When not venting about the “injustices” done to him (those of his own making), he sometimes features a mind-numbing post from some so-called adherent of his self-styled “indie” group. They are long and tedious diatribes written by nobodies, often chock full of basic spelling and grammar mistakes.
In a word, they are dreadful.
That these people gave up on the Church years, if not decades ago, doesn’t matter to Rathbun. It gives him fodder for his blog and, presumably, a new “counseling” client to pay him a few bucks.
But recently Rathbun’s clientele has significantly declined. There could be multiple reasons for such a decline.
First, Rathbun i sjust lazy – something that his best good buddy Mike Rinder perfected into an art form. Rathbun’s personal history since being removed from the Church in 2004 also shows us a slothful streak.

Living off an inheritance, Rathbun became a drifter, spending all his money on junk food and motels before taking up residence in the Texas Gulf area. When the money ran dry, the former external affairs staffer worked a series of odd jobs – as a newspaper cub reporter and a beer hawker in a ballpark, among others.

These jobs were perfect for Marty as they require little effort, and no resume is necessary. In fact, they were the only jobs available to someone like Marty Rathbun.

Even acquiring a girlfriend was just a few clicks away. After a couple of dates, a fake wedding, a drunken and disorderly honeymoon in New Orleans and the rest is history. Along the way “wife” Monique got a new name, “Mosey.” The derivation of that name could even have something to do with Rathbun’s laziness in “Could you mosey over to the fridge and grab me a beer, honey?” Anything’s possible.

Another reason might be his horrific “counseling abilities” and his clients have began to experience bad “counseling” and are indeed smelling a rat. As a self-proclaimed guru, Rathbun is little more than a legend in his own mind with no bona fides to establish him as a counselor of anything.
Ironically, Rathbun’s “father-in-law” James Banks is in the counseling business in New York, but at least he has an education which gives him state licensing to run his enterprise. It would be curious to learn what Banks thinks of his “son-in-law” being in the business, so to speak, given that Rathbun is just a non-certified freelancer with an Internet hook-up.
Yet another reason for Rathbun’s lack of clientele might be his “warrior” personality. Rathbun has admitted that he sees himself as a warrior who is at his best when there are wars to be waged and battles to be fought. Others might differ with that observation, pointing out that Rathbun is at his worst as a warrior because that’s when he does the most damage to innocent parties.

Whatever the case, the wars are over and the world has moved on. As for the few so-called “indies” out there, they are quickly learning that Marty Rathbun, far from being a “counselor,” is just your run-of-the-mill scam.

Mark Marty Rathbun Descent into Abyss

“Marty Rathbun’s descent into the abyss of insanity was by no means a sudden, over-the-edge plunge.Few were able to see his slow and inexorable slide into the depths of irreversible irrationality.

For years Rathbun managed to keep his madness hidden. His cleverness had grown all but demonic and what he unleashed was kept isolated and behind closed doors.

But by winter of 2004, the year of his desertion from the Church, he could no longer keep his malady veiled. The cunning was gone, the rage unchecked, and so it was that a whole host of co-workers finally bore witness to what Rathbun had become. That was the evening when all of them shockingly saw, and then promptly stopped, his attempt to kill Mike Rinder with his bare hands.

“Organizing” With Marty Rathbun?

Rathbun is actively trying to divert resources away from the Church of Scientology. He believes that he can organize a better system than the one LRH has had in place for many years. Rathbun is convinced that he can get good standing members to leave and join his splinter group by spreading lies.

If Rathbun had a written program he was following, you would probably see this particular Suppressive Act as one of his Major Targets.

Squirrel Marty Rathbun: Mr. “Case on Post”

Marty Rathbun confuses staff discipline with how a PC is to be audited in session. He complains that staff members aren’t being treated the way a PC is handled by an auditor. He’s hoping that the uninformed (and I include here the “independent” practitioners he pretends to be aligned with) don’t notice that this is just another ignorant twist of his in an effort to criticize and degrade.

Being on staff is NOT, of course, being a PC. A staff member conducts himself as though he has no case at all. The policy is that “there is no case on post.” This is basic staff rigor, at any and all levels, and one of the primary reasons that Scientology organizations are as effective as they are.

Rathbun likes to gnaw on this point largely because his conscience is gnawing on him. Rathbun was and remains notorious for the way in which he mistreated fellow staff whenever COB’s back was turned.

Rathbun Cannot Stand Against LRH

No less a dedicated propagandist than Joseph Goebbels once inspired Marty Rathbun in his campaign of hatred against Scientology and L. Ron Hubbard. “If you repeat a lie often enough, it becomes the truth” seems to be the guiding principle of Rathbun’s transparently perverse representation of himself and his purposes.

We’ve heard from him for several years now that he is “pro” LRH. In fact, hearing him say or imply this in numerous ways is the ONLY indication of that “pro” stance. His actions have virtually all been to the contrary, and clearly show that he is as much of an LRH hater as has ever existed.

For some background on this, see my article “Marty Rathbun Confirms He’s Anti-LRH Once Again.”

Aside from the fact that Rathbun is actively befriending and supporting the most unequivocal LRH-haters in the world today – Ursula Caberta, Mark Bunker, Tony Ortega, SP Times, Sweeney, Berry, etc. – his bastardization of the Tech of Scientology itself (while posing as an “authority” on it) tells the real story of his intentions toward LRH.

The number and degree of his technically squirrel actions alone show that he has utter disdain for the miraculous tech LRH created, as well as for the Administrative and Ethics procedures he put in place to keep the tech effective and pure. No amount of silly assertions of being “standard” by Rathbun can overcome the facts of his malpractice of Scientology and its Tech and principles.
