Top Scientology leaders caught on video harassing an ex member at L.A. airport

A former executive of the Church of Scientology has posted video footage showing high-ranking members of the church yelling obscenities and harassing him in a Los Angeles airport.

The video is the first public glimpse of the secretive church’s top management in four years. The footage, posted by Mark Rathbun this Sunday, shows Marc Yager, Dave Bloomberg and Jennifer Linson Devocht — three executives who report to church president David Miscavige. The church members can be seen yelling at Rathbun, telling him to “get a life,” that his criticism of the church has had “no effect,” and “nobody gives a f*ck about you.”

Mark Rathbun has been a vocal critic of Scientology since he defected from the church’s leadership back in 2004. During his 27 years in the church, Rathbun rose to the top echelons of leadership, where he was responsible for “auditing” new recruits.

The video gives “a very rare glimpse at the personalities who are actually running Scientology at the highest levels,” Rathbun told the International Business Times.

According to Rathbun, Scientology’s top leaders have not been seen in public since appearing on a CNN exposé in 2010. “No one has [seen or heard] of them since.”

This isn’t the first time Rathbun has experienced intimidation tactics by church executives. In 2011, members of the church appeared at Rathbun’s house in Corpus Christi, Texas armed with video cameras, and proceeded to harass Rathbun on his front porch.

    These people, especially the woman, seem to feel they are especially entitled for some reason. Whatever could that be? Does religion really make them “special?”

    That is one SERIOUSLY ugly woman. Yike! And those two guys look like they’re stoned out of their minds. If these three jackasses are running the Scientology cult right now, it’s no wonder it’s become such a worldwide cosmic joke. They’re laughing stocks. And she should never go out in public without a bag over her head.

    Crazy cultists will be crazy cultists. With all the information that is public and what you can observe yourself and any of their higher profile centers, there should be no doubt… These people are insane narcissists .

    So Rathburn’s criticism has “no effect,” except that some major cult representatives are harassing a guy in public? Kind of proves his point that his criticism DOES have an effect!

    If you want to slow down the recruitment by the Scientologists, stop showing Tom Cruise and John Travolta, and start showing these ones. All of the allure will instantly evapourate.

    If no one cares about him and he means nothing why even bother meeting him at the airport to harass him? These three are creepy as heck.

    Many religious people feel they are the chosen of god and therefore special and do not need to bother with civility or good manners.

    you could replace it with christianism, judaism, islamism and any other “ism” you can think of, and you would still be correct. ALL religions are a fraud. Just smoke and mirrors. There are no thetans living in your body, just like there is no invisible friend in the skies.
