Scientology Cult of Confusion filming by Bert Leahy Productions a success
Videographer, Bert Leahy, once hired by Scientology as a ‘Squirrel Buster’ to film the harassment of former Scientology executive Marty Rathbun, may be another nightmare for the cult’s leader, David Miscavige.
Bert Leahy could feel something wasn’t right when Marty Rathbun was being harassed by the ‘Squirrel Buster’ thugs, and quit after only a few days. Leahy says it just felt wrong, and he told his employer that he couldn't be a part of it anymore. Scientology stalked and harassed Rathbun for one hundred and ninety nine (199) days, non-stop.
Leahy knew nothing about Scientology or their Narconon drug rehab network until after he quit his $2,000 per week stint with the ‘Busters’. But once he returned home and did some online searches of Marty Rathbun, he discovered his own mug image was circulating the internet.
This Texan had no idea the impact it would have, on the Internet, and the news stories. Leahy's name was on thousands of web pages, associating him with Scientology. And once he met the parents whose children had died inside Scientology’
Bert Leahy became a ‘man on a mission’ to expose the dangers and abuses in Scientology and Narconon.
In August, 2012, I flew from Montreal to Oklahoma’s Narconon Arrowhead to meet Bert Leahy at a protest event he was filming. The minute I met Leahy, I knew he was a man of integrity, but also a person who cared about the victims, the grieving families, and his heart showed a face with deep empathy for his fellow man.
This month, I spent another 2 weeks with Bert Leahy and Colin Henderson as they travelled 4,000 miles across America’s heart land to film a documentary, “Scientology Cult of Confusion” in nearly 27 cities. It was an amazing adventure of emotion and incredible interviews with numerous Scientology victims of abuse and death.
Bert Leahy Productions will now have professional editors prepare the 80 hours of film into a one or two part documentary that should indeed tell a story of pain and suffering that can, and must stop. Leahy has posted online comments, thanking the countless people for their support and love on his journey to expose the real truth through the lenses of his camera and soul.
