    Default Martin Bentley ? - 2011

    I have just been told that Martin Bentley has died, apparently he was in a nursing home somewhere on the Gold Coast in QLD.

    The information I have is that Debbie Champion from the Sydney AO contacted his ex-wife to tell her.

    I sort of thought that was a bit strange since Martin left her after joining the sea org and taking up with another sea org member before being rpfed...

    Does anyone know any details?

    RIP, Martin

    I have many fond memories of him over the years we crossed paths in the cult.

    He deserved better than to be abandoned to a nursing home for his final years.

    Let him know that you are walking by his side
    And if he feels that all is lost and he is fallen
    Try to place that poor man's feet on solid ground
    Just remember he's some mother's precious darlin'
    Always lift him up and never knock him down

    Martin Bentley was abandoned by the CofS long before he ever got to the nursing home.

    The CofS simply abandoned Martin, a man who gave his life in service to scientology, once he was considered to be of no further value to them.

    A kind-hearted and caring Ex-scn'ist found Martin wandering the streets; homeless, bedraggled, ill with dementia and suffering from malnutrition. That person took Martin in and helped him regain some semblance of health and normalcy and finally helped him get situated in the Nursing Home.

    That particular Ex-scientologist did what the CofS should have done.

    RIP, Martin.

    How did Martin ever get into that state?

    This cult has a lot to answer for...

    I wonder what their motive is in contacting Renee?

    It's a long story and I don't know all the details, my friend does and may tell all someday soon. I'll ask.

    It's a typical scientology story in one aspect; a long-serving Staff and SO Member, Class IX Auditor, Class VII (Power Auditor), Highly Trained C/S etc etc gets steam-rolled because of disagreements with GAT corruption of the Tech... you know the story.

    This cult has a lot to answer for...
    It certainly does, let's keep asking the questions and pointing to the crimes.

    I wonder what their motive is in contacting Renee?
    Hmmm... lemme think, Life Insurance?

    RIP Martin
    Yes, he was a wonderful individual. Most who knew him will remember him fondly.

    I actually wondered if there was a "freeloaders bill" that they may try to see if she would be willing to contribute to?????

    I have mixed feelings.... he was very cruel to Renee when he left her for Julia... I read the letters he wrote her, she was crushed at the time the cult's work at it's finest once again....

    Your friend sounds wonderful, please pass on a message that what was done (to assist Martin) was very precious and appreciated by some here at ESMB, it is very upsetting to think of him wandering alone like that.


    Sleep well now Martin, because you certainly deserve to.

    I knew Martin well. In fact I did contact him when I got out in 2008. He'd been caught in a Nigerian scam and was confused and abrupt, I found out later that he soon became homeless and all that was the precursor to the dementia that was setting in.

    I heard that he was asked to leave the CofS Brisbane at one time as per their models he was type 3. Martin had done the old OT levels and the new bridge up to OTV, so of course the org staff thought he was insane and didn't even think that he might have dementia or get him appropriate treatment.
