The delinquents are back.
Letter to A and E :
Dear Mr. Hoberman,
It has come to my attention that your latest Leah Remini/Mike Rinder prankster production may be targeting me with accusations of a discreditable nature.
By way of background, when I last dared to raise objections to similar conduct on the part of Remini, Rinder, A & E, and IPC your two noble ‘activists’ targeted my family for retaliation. Remini’s anti-scientology Facebook page was used as a forum to launch phony, vicious attacks to undermine and destroy my wife’s fledgling, family-run bakery. Upon being called out on their hijinks, Remini and Rinder went silent. Very silent. They created a private (members only) Facebook forum from which to continue with their juvenile-delinquent behaviors. So much for their continual refrain about the sanctity of family, the atrocity of targeting people for harassment who dissent from particular doctrinal views, and those with alleged obsessions about secrecy.
Rinder and Remini also participated in a blackmail scheme to silence my dissent from their preying on emotionally weak people with hysterical and misleading portrayals of their own experiences in and concerning Scientology. I was informed by the leading financier of Rinder and the anti-Scientology Cult (ASC, of which Remini and RInder are the leading lights) that if I did not remain silent about the group’s duplicity my ‘crimes’ committed while in Scientology would be ruthlessly exposed. Having myself already thoroughly disclosed any untoward behavior I may have engaged in while affiliated with the church of Scientology, my response was ‘make my day.’
Months later, in January 2017 I was informed by ASC’s chief propagandist Tony Ortega that an ABC Leah Remini special scheduled to air the next day was targeting me for alleged crimes I had committed while in Scientology – and that Ortega was set to flank the show on his hate site. I learned that one Sergio Gil was filmed announcing that while I was in the Church I forced him to cooperate in a cover-up of an alleged sexual assault he had been victim of. I informed ABC that I did not even know who Sergio Gil was, had never witnessed anyone being sexually assaulted by anyone, never received a report of such an act, and never participated in any cover up of any such incident. ABC investigated and wisely chose to edit the segment out of the Remini production. It turned out Gil had been publishing his accusations on a private Facebook page operated by ASC’s financier and regularly frequented by Rinder and Remini.
A concerned citizen recently sent me two postings on Remini’s secret site that are the cause for my current concerns. Those were a post from Gil and a post from a Remini minion showing Gil as a participant in your upcoming anti-Scientology smear job. In Gil’s post, he has rolled out a brand new series of accusations about me. Remarkably, the new charges are one hundred and eighty degrees the opposite of what he charged in 2017. Now, Gil does not claim that I participated in covering up sexual misconduct, but instead that I specialized in uncovering and exposing it. He claims that I trained him and others on how to do the same.
Quite the trick considering that Gil is somebody I never met, never knew, and never communicated with. The entire post is strewn with misrepresentations starting with a position I allegedly held that I never did and have never even heard of to the procedures he recounts being taught to the existence of such a ‘school’ where his imagined accusations took place. I understand that Gil has boasted of the psychiatric treatment he has received since leaving the Church. If true, his continued public prancing about with such wild hallucinations is a severe indictment of the psychiatrists concerned.
More likely , given their treatment of me and my family in the past, Gil’s real problem is his affiliation with Remini and Rinder whose stock in trade appears to be cultivating and promoting such delusions.
Incidentally, more than a year ago I posted a video wherein I pointed out a glaring absurdity about your plethora of sexual abuse and cover-up claims. That is, the person who would have been in a position to know of the particulars of them all, if there were any, was the very joker producing this litany. Mike Rinder. By his own descriptions of the positions he held for decades — the duration within which virtually all your claims allegedly occurred — Mike RInder would be the only person capable of corroborating all them and the most authoritative – evidenced by the size of his Remini production salary – to boot. I pointed out Rinder had not taken responsibility for a one of them, nor even acknowledged that any corner of what was alleged actually occurred. Since then, how many particulars has he copped to? In fact, Sleepy Mike’s silence is further corroboration of the facts I state concerning the accusations against me.
If for some reason Rinder has a sudden bout of that rare affliction called ‘memory’ and cooks up an act for you, in light of the previous paragraph (and after your countenance of Rinder’s three-year hiding in plain sight schtick) and you go ahead and air any such accusations concerning me – even with a notation that said that I never heard of the individual – I very well may sue you.
Mark C. Rathbun
Thanks for the update, Marty. Good to hear from you.
Thanks for another signature post, telling it like it is.
I fully appreciate your taking time to tell us your side, which I happen to have no problem believing as I watch more and more “ex’s” enter a similar scenario as the political arena whose sole purpose appears to be Divide and Conquer and stir up as much sh– as possible……Entheta is their middle name. Thank you Marty. I was wondering where you went. Absence allows fill in to occur. Thanks for showing up.
I say the same as Sharon.
I have not stopped following the drama and story of the SO as it was such a vital part of my life. Everything I read online, on website, in magazines is of course parsed through my own lens, my own story and my own memories. And yet, I’m astonished over and over how MUCH of the “story” just isn’t ENOUGH of the story … I know personally so many of the early players …
The duplicity is breathtaking.
In keeping with earlier posts of mine — my latest read (am listening on audible):
“Solve for Happy: Engineer Your Path to Joy” Mo Gawdat – former Chief Business Officer, Google (x)
His approach has brought me nearly full circle … to a faith based belief in no death … lifetimes …
I am so grateful that Mo took his own unfathomable heartbreak and turned it into something a positive …
Good one. BTW, maybe I wrote you privately (don’t remember), but in any case, after your last long series of videos I finally decided to stop following all this nonsense as a daily ritual, as I had for years since discovering your blog. It was a full circle realisation of the whole ‘fake news’ syndrome, no different in the mainstream than in the new anti-scientology movement. (to be clear, this is a compliment. I felt you were always more truthful than the rest and that series–despite the recoil that came back on you because of it–was ire honest than all the rest of the no so-called experts on Scn). And, in truth, I haven’t checked back for years. Maybe once or twice in a few years out of curiosity but finding that nothing is really new. Strangely, on those few occasions I found your site had long gone quiet. Tonight was one of those times I checked back. So again, good one. Gawd, they’re still droning on. Must be exhausting to keep following this drivel.
Hi Marty, it would be nice to get back to your inspiring writing; the writing that occurred before all this animosity. Just a thought. You have a good mind, and a presence to share. Good luck…
Who is the financier?
Hi Marty – I really enjoyed your memoir – what is Texas Tropics all about? You are an excellent writer. Wishing you well.
I just have one comment for you my beloved Mark, and this is it, and you have to deal with it !
Marty Rathbun my Brother from another Mother I will put this up on Why We Protest for better or worse, I am so happy to have you back.
I will leave you with my almost favorite song: Later Mark

Thanks for the public statement on this issue, Marty. About what I had figured, actually. 😡
I am Proud of you
Hey Marty, good to see you’re posting again. Hope all is well with you and the family.
Today I came across this article on The Daily Beast site titled “How Nicole Kidman Almost Got Tom Cruise to Leave Scientology”. It was posted on Dec. 28, 2019. So about five days ago. Yes, you can tell by the title that The Daily Beast obviously doesn’t have enough other important things to cover, so they dredge up this tired 20 plus year old story.
Anyway, you are in this article of course. The main reason I’m bringing it to your attention though is because the author just matter-of-factly says that you have rejoined the CoS. You know, like it is just a proven fact. Obviously it is not a fact.
Here is the link: https://www.thedailybeast.com/how-nicole-kidman-almost-got-tom-cruise-to-leave-scientology?ref=scroll
I was planning to send this to you via email, but I no longer have your address and I couldn’t find it on your blog here. Feel free to delete this post if you don’t care to call attention to this story from your site. I will understand.

Mark in the end we all know Scientology will not repell old age. I hope you and your family will move through time gracefully and not emd up like people who belive in their own greatness. You know who they are. This migt and I say might be my final message to me my strange ally. I always defended you on WWP when it was relevant and ditto on the Ex Scientology Message Board. I saw your struggle and I saw your pain. I alsoo saw your loss in having found something you could believe in that spit you out in the end and haunted you viciously afterwards. I salute your fight. But you have done enough. I wish you a hapyy live with your live. I will be so presumptious to call you my friend Mark. I say Goodby to you and I will miss you,your toughts, your honesty. your intelect, your willingness to change your mind.
You and your family will always be in my mind. In another world we would be the best friends ever.
Sinceraly yours: Cornelius Anthonius Martens.
