Herbert L. Rosedale (Unknown - November 4, 2004) was one of America's foremost anti-cult activists. Director of the AFF (renamed ICSA), he worked closely with Michael Langone to assert their belief of "cults" as manipulative, self-serving organizations which harm their hapless recruits. Rosedale denied the existence of the anti-cult movement.

He gave speeches at the American Psychological Association, The New School in New York City, Columbia University School of Journalism, and the Association of Private Enterprise Education. Rosedale was counsel for the New York City Jewish Community Relations Council Task Force on Cults and Missionaries and the New York Interfaith Coalition of Concern About Cults[1].

Rosedale was a contributor to the book Recovery from Cults (book), and with Carol Giambalvo, author of The Boston Movement: Critical Perspectives on the International Churches of Christ.
