Blog: "Return to Route Out Properly" - 2010-10-10
I've posted before that the Church's insistence that Ex-Sea Org Members "return to route out properly" is a trap. The latest evidence of this is the story of Daniel Montalvo posted on Marty's blog, and subsequently reported by the Village Voice, LA Weekly and Time Newsfeed.
You can read the whole story at any one of these links. Basically, Daniel blew from Bridge Publications, taking with him several hard drives containing his music and some work files from Bridge. Marty and others advised him to return them right away, which he did, via messenger service.
He then went to Florida to join Tom Devocht, who had offered to house him and find him a job. There, he faced pressure from Scientologists, including his own family, to return and "route out properly." Eventually, he called in to talk to his mother, but instead was put through to Scientology lawyer Kendrick Moxon, who threatened him with arrest for theft unless he returned and "routed out properly."
