Victory is so sweet!

I haven’t had much time to write recently, but I’ve had time to read — and oh, how I am enjoying Marty Rathbun’s frustration over the refusal of “The Media” to separate Scientology from… well, from Scientology.

Marty writes:

“It is unfortunate that there has not been time, nor the inclination on the part of media, to differentiate Miscavige’s cult and its conduct from the philosophy of Scientology.”

Ah, but Marty, bubby, clearly they are taking the time — the time to properly reasearch Scientology. Rather than take your attempts to whitewash Hubbard at face value, they are taking the time to read more about the subject, and at the very least realize that, Slappy Miscavige or not, Scientology is still a bug-nutty UFO religion. You can write all the books you want, Marty, but you can’t change that fact.

Unfortunately for Marty and other Hubbard apologists, the proof is in Hubbard’s own prolific writing. Go back through the archives of this blog and you’ll see countless examples of Hubbard policy dictacing the wrong-doing that these clowns attempt to blame on David Miscavige. Is Miscavige bad? Hell yeah, he is — he’s scum. But Hubbard is far, far worse, a lying, scheming, glory-seeking con man whose money-making, tax-evading scam persists even decades after his death.

And now one of Marty’s minyans wants to start an Indie youth group? Fuck me.

Marty Rathbun has been saying for years now that the organized Church of Scientology is dead. Clearly, it isn’t, not yet at least. But perhaps I can take this opportunity to do what Marty does, and declare Scientology dead. It appears we’ve hit the tipping point where the mainstream media is no longer willing to accept Rathbun and the other vocal Indie’s insistance that Scientoloy is good, and Miscavige is the problem. That hackneyed old story has sprung so many leaks that there just aren’t enough Independent thumbs to plug them all.

Of course, Scientology isn’t dead, and we should not rest until everyone understands that it is nothing but a self-help scam designed to enrich its long-dead founder. And when I say everyone, I mean even the people who really don’t want to see it — the Indies themselves.

Marty, if you’re reading this, I know you like to read non-Scientology books (and I commend you for that). Why not read this one and comment about it on your blog?

  1. No review of Marty’s book yet?

    • I keep going back and forth on whether I should buy it. On the one hand it’d be good to see what Marty is up to. On the other hand it might just piss me off, because I’m pretty sure I know what I am going to find. Plus I have issues with giving Marty money. 🙂 I’d love to debunk it chapter by chapter but I don’t know if I have the time!

  2. Does Marty even have a Minivan ?

    What say you Aaron Saxton ? I know you are lovin all this like I am.


    Marty – you are a prick.

    You see, children need to be told what is, and what isn’t so they grow up being obedient to ideas of radical men.

    So Hitler started what was called the “Hitler Youth”. LRH thought it was a great idea, so not only did he create his own made-up war eye injuries like his idol AH, he too thought a Sea Org youth would be a great idea – he called it the Cadet Org.

    Now, you see, Marty can’t convince adults about his ideas and he is getting very frustrated with intelligent people who actually can see the connection between Scientology and Scientology. So, now Marty will do what LRH did, what Hitler did and create a place where children can be taught good and proper, so the bad ones can be weeded out – or straightened out through auditing and training until they fucking comply to the way Marty sees the world.

    If Marty started a youth group, I swear, I will go after him so fast, his underwear will be stained when he shits himself at the trouble I will cause that lad.

    That’s a promise to any indi too that supports him – you will wish you hadn’t.

  4. Thank you, Aaron. Seriously!

  5. I wonder if in Marty’s TV appearances, he’s been trying to squeeze some pro-cult drivel in. If so, they are just editing it out. It would be confusing to viewers. People at home have enough trouble sorting out the rogue’s gallery of characters (including Marty) and fathoming that Scientology has this much control over celebs like TomKat. The news people know enough not to drag Marty’s it’s-all-Miscavige’s-fault crazy into the mix. It’s enough if they say that he’s still a believer. They aren’t going to “disseminate the tech.”
