Understanding Marty Rathbun: For the first time, his full deposition of 2014 - 2017-03-16
On Tuesday, we examined the complete history of Mark "Marty" Rathbun's website, "Moving On Up a Little Higher," looking for some clues for what led the former top Church of Scientology official to go from one of church leader David Miscavige's most vocal and effective critics to give up that role so completely.
If you read our article Tuesday, you know that December 2014 was a very interesting time in Rathbun's journey. Earlier that month, he had been filming with Louis Theroux in Los Angeles when they were ambushed by Scientology operatives who tried to intimidate Rathbun about the adoption of a child the year before. That confrontation became the climactic scene in Theroux's film now playing in theaters, My Scientology Movie.
