The Top 25 People Enabling Scientology, No. 18: Mark 'Marty' Rathbun - 2020-08-29
In 2011 we spent the month of August counting down a list of the "Top 25 People Crippling Scientology." Nine years later, Scientology is still hurting, but church leader David Miscavige learned long ago that paid membership was only one resource that kept him in business. He also relies on a small army of enablers, some paid, some not, who help him stay in business even though they aren't Scientologists themselves. So we thought we'd recognize them with this countdown.
Nine years ago, former top Scientology enforcer Mark "Marty" Rathbun wrote a fiery article that was typical of his blog at that time.
In that piece which he posted on June 20, 2011, Marty wrote about how Tiziano Lugli, a former Scientologist, had been betrayed by someone he had considered a close friend, a motivational speaker and major Scientology donor named Grant Cardone.
