L. Ron Hubbard must have been one hell of a hypnotist. I was reading some bits and pieces today about his wives and lovers. He slept with quite a lot of women, some very beautiful. Of course none of these women are acknowledged by the Church of Scientology except for his last wife – Mary Sue Whipp, and even then she barely gets a mention.
As we know Mary Sue took all the heat for Hubbard after the FBI raids and did jail time while he escaped the law and went into hiding. She was a faithful and dutiful wife and by all accounts loved Ron Hubbard very much.
Scientologists like to romanticise MSH. There are several websites that pay tribute to her. Those websites however tend to omit much of her legal troubles (funny about that).
I couldn’t find much about how they met. I recall reading once that she was on a Dianetics course when she met him, or she was on staff or something (I can’t really remember). Today I came across this video which I had not seen before, and judging by the amount of views it has, neither have many others.
This is the romantic story of how Ron & Mary Sue met, as told by an old friend who was there at the time:
Doesn’t it just make your heart swell!
A few days ago I wrote an open letter to Monique Rathbun. So far I’ve had no response, but as I said, Monique doesn’t owe me or anyone else anything. I wish her well for her future.
