Meet the LMT
Bob Minton is a 54 year old retired investment banker
from Boston and Sandown, New Hampshire, who became a critic of Scientology
in early 1995 after one of Scientology's attorneys tried to cancel a
newsgroup on the Internet on which critics of Scientology were posting.
Starting in March, 1996, he began committing substantial financial
resources to oppose what he calls the evil abusive, deceptive and
harassive tactics used by Scientology to suppress its members and critics.
To date, Bob has committed over $4 million of his own funds to defend
himself against Scientology's campaign to destroy him, and to assist
others in their opposition to Scientology.
Bob's crusade has caused Scientology to label him their Public
Enemy number 1. His work has been extensively documented in the media
through NBC Dateline, A&E, SAT1-TV in Germany, The New York Times,
Boston Globe, LA Times, Baltimore Sun, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution,
Chicago Tribune, St. Petersburg Times, and the Detroit News.
In January, 2000, Bob Minton opened a Scientology watchdog group in
Clearwater, Florida where Scientology maintains their worldwide
"spiritual" training center. He called it the Lisa McPherson Trust in
honor of a 36-year-old victim of Scientology who died after a
seventeen-day stay at Scientology's headquarters in Clearwater. Although
Scientology successfully intimidated the Pinellas County medical examiner
into changing her autopsy report, thereby causing a criminal case against
Scientology for her death to be dismissed, Bob is funding a wrongful death
lawsuit that the family of Lisa McPherson has brought against Scientology.
