Giving too many chances

People can be very forgiving perhaps sometimes even too forgiving. Such is often the case in Scientology. We try to give a second chance whenever possible and that second chance often extends to third, forth, fifth and more chances.

Such was the case with Mark "Marty" Rathbun. Despite his really bad behavior he was given many chances but eventually he decided he didn't want any more chances and left the Church. It was his right to do that, no one can force you to be a Scientologist. But then he saw an opportunity to make a quick buck out of Scientology's huge popularity and his former position in the Church and so began his campaign of lies that culminated in a ridiculous news article (see "Inside the S.P. Times") and a TV show that really shows how bad journalism can get (see "A History of Lies")

Of course, there will be those who, despite the overwhelming evidence to the contrary, will insist that Rathbun's unsubstantiated accusations are true. Unfortunately for such people, Rathbun just went out of his way to prove how untrustworthy he is by getting himself arrested (Mark "Marty" Rathbun arrest documents) and then took no responsibility at all for his actions.

This nine-day-wonder is nearing the end of his ninth day and will soon relapse back into obscurity along with his lies and money making hopes. Personally, I can't wait for midnight to strike.
