    I'm going largely on what Jesse Prince has said about Marty's past and experience....especially in the early days. For one thing a women was blown away sitting in a car next to him by a deranged SO member. That's according to Jesse. Not a book.
    we are on the same page.

    I understand. I know I'm skating on thin ice. I also understand and even empathize with those who still have hard feelings towards Marty Rathbun. But when he his called a "motherfucker" when he's not even here to respond....well it ticks me off. Engage what Marty did while still in without the personal insults...fine.

    I think Marty is at least trying to help undo what he did. Which is more than what most of us here are doing. Hammering away on a message board. Yeah...that's real effort.

    SP83 can just not watch the upcoming HBO film then. After all, Marty and Mike both are featured in it. They were both "evil" back in the day. So don't watch it. If you do, then you're a hypocrite. SP83 is....not Mod3.

    I'll give myself a vacation from ESMB to save you and the other Mod the trouble.

    There's no need to take a break. Just tone it down, which isn't the same thing as make it downtone, lol. I like your passion, it's refreshing to me. I like your humor, I can use all the laughs I can get. I like the people here and hate "disciplining" anyone.

    I hope Moderator 3 will let us know when it's OK to criticize and question Marty again.

    I agree that Marty is evolving and improving, and that deserves to be acknowledged.

    And I too was touched by his recent emotional video.

    When the time is right, I hope Marty will spill the rest of the beans. There's much more than he has said so far.

    That is when the time is right.

    This is Bullshit, Veda, and you know it. The friendly warning was to two posters here who were flaming each other. Your spin/interpretation on that friendly warning is just odd.

    Veda, I don't think Mod3 ever had a problem with criticizing or questioning Marty. If you're referring to the other thread, I saw it as frustrating, because there was no debate allowed by the other party posting and those who questioned that poster received long replies that did not answer the questions. It was like a running monologue. That's okay for a blog post, but in a forum, it's supposed to be a debate or conversation.

    But maybe we all agree that there is more for Marty to say. I don't have a problem with him leaking info through other sources though, and with all he's gone through and done recently, it's only human to give the guy a break and help and support him.

    But I couldn't agree more with you that right now is bad timing for that - all the way around.

    Yes, a little snarky. I liked the post in terms of him wanting Marty to continue to spill the beans but I think that he's moving along that track already so no one is going to push that process along any faster by commenting on a message board I dare say.

    That how I see it. Currently, I don't feel safe questioning or criticizing Marty on ESMB.

    Your warnings predate these latest two warnings.

    That's why I've decided to abstain from questioning or criticizing Marty on this forum at this time.

    They could have slinked off into the wildernes, never to be heard from again. The only people (in my opinion) who I have a good understanding of why they might hold onto some anger (or desire for these guys to do more) are those who were personally victimized by these people.

    So, maybe you are one of those people?

    Regarding the fact that you believe Marty has crimes where he belongs in prison, possibly murder, is there some cold case that the authorities are trying to solve that you have special knowledge about where Marty is the perpetrator?

    It's already known that Marty obstructed justice in the McPherson case, he's admitted it and so far, no one is coming after him for this but he didn't "murder" Lisa. That's a huge accusation.





    Ok, seems things are stuck on "murder". Kidnapping, extortion, false imprisoments are also serious crimes. I don't have any knowledge of specific crimes. But don't tell me there isn't enough smoke to at least SUSPECT a fire. The pattern of criminal behavior among scn execs is well known by many. Specific crimes would need investigation.

    If you want to know what would satisfy me, this would do it: Marty Rathbun in the witness chair with David Miscavidge at the defense table. Regardless of the jury verdict, I would sing his praises to the heavens.
    After watching the way that religions are so protected here in the US, I have recently come to the conclusion that they truly do have their own rules in a certain sense. I am going to say something that will piss some people off but the way I see it, other than those born into the cult (which, if I am not mistaken, you were born in, right?) there are no other 100% pure victims and I don't even think I can say that those born in, of course without consent, are 100% victims (but close enough).

    The rest of us all quickly initialed our rights away and signed those enrollment and other agreements usually without even reading them. We trusted our cult. We all played on the field. Some people played fiercer games than others but we all agreed until we didn't agree anymore.

    No, most of us didn't agree to all the shit OSA, RTC, INT MGMT were doing. We didn't know about it until we left but those who moved up the line started playing by different rules, LRH advices and Flag orders, etc. that the rank and file were never privy to. Once one got up in that stratosphere, imagine how much weirder it got and how much harder it got to leave. What a mind fuck.

    Marty does not have a warrant out for his arrest, he has not been convicted of any crimes and is not a menace or danger to society. He's already living a certain hell. He will surely reap everything we sowed simply because he's actually allowing that to happen.
    The pattern of criminal behavior by upper management is well documented. Specific crimes would need to be addressed. I don't know how many ways I can say I will forgive him. If you know what it will take, here it is: Marty in the witness chair with Miscavidge at the defense table.

    If you know how the RICO statutes work, you know that in a corrupt organization, one can go to prison just for association. He would need a grant of immunity for his testimony which I would happily accede to. A prosecutor would have to understand that scn is a rackett and corrupt. These are the "R" and "C" in RICO.

    There may be lesser things he could do to satisfy my sense of justice. The above is just one possibility.

    And if you judge me for not easily forgiving someone who did the things we all KNOW he did, aren't you being judgemental and self-righteous, as I was accused of? Just askin.

    I'm sorry moderator but I flamed no one. I politely asked him not to flame me and said I would ignore him if he did it again.
