• Mike Rinder
    An Imposter Who Wanted Importance

    Rita Parkin

    When I knew Mike Rinder, I observed him get so many chances and help despite his mess-ups, being a parasite, a liar and abusive with his staff. Had he worked in an outside job, he would have been kicked out many times over.

    He never understood what it is to call oneself a Scientologist and couldn’t have been one, but was an imposter who wanted importance. I remember when I was his secretary for several months. He had access to service in our staff dining room, but this was not good enough for him and I would have to prepare his meals.

    That is the only time I was able to move from my desk for a period of time. He couldn’t care less if I had eaten or not.

    At that time he was stuck in a certain time period in the past and decades later he is still
    at the same place.

    He would eat in his office where he spent most of his time “reading and editing” materials while actually sleeping. Or he would be ordering his staff around or verbally abusing them. At that time he was stuck in a certain time period in the past and decades later he is still at the same place. He is definitely not in the year 2017!
