Guess Who's Back? The Evil New Agers


Neat! Megalomaniacal New Age preacher-shill Marianne Williamson has been mounting a comeback and I didn't even know it! She is a wingnut, and a former associate of the uber-wingnut Louise Hay, who—well, let her tell you her own parable of manifesting a sore throat because she wants to be pitied. You know, because we all make ourselves sick with our thoughts. HOW do you beat those thoughts? I'm glad you asked.

That's right. Got it?

Anyway, chick was made for the Twitter era. Me, I'm visualizing an end to cultish spiritual vampires. Listen, you KNOW I am all about the light and the love, and the puppies and the flowers, and the appreciating the moments. And whatever gets you through this weird, messed-up world! If it works for you, go for it. And nobody loves a sunset like me! I will love the hell out of a sunset. But there is such a thing as turning the corner with that stuff and then next thing you know, boom, you are a money mill and a spiritual leader with a couple big bank accounts. And books that make LITTLE SENSE, when they are not actively harmful.

ENJOY. And please cure your HIV and/or cancer, it's very off-putting, and I can tell that you don't love yourself.

Man. I went through this the first time around in California and it was really terrible.

Yes, but can she cure bacon with her mind?

@freetzy She might just have enough hot air in her to do this.

I think the only way to stop her is to stock up on Pepsi. Lots and lots of Pepsi.

@Matt Meanwhile we can read Newcastle Brown Ale's favorite Awl posts of yore.

Naught else but simple shit. I'm at present visualizing the anemic IQ of the person who would fall for this.

@RonMwangaguhung It was pretty heartbreaking to see the guys in the Castro toting around her "book" in the pre- drug therapy days.They weren't stupid, just desperate. That woman is a vulture and she profited from those poor boy's last hopes.

I got their Secret right here . . .

And for those of you that might wish to study her path, go to 2315 San Felipe in Houston, TX, which is the location the apartment where she lived with her Bouvier (the dog) before she moved to L.A. Interview the neighbors. The two story building was torn down to create car parking spaces.

@Choire: It's stuff like this that made me leave California also. Pretty sure the only antidote is a dry martini, up with a twist.

One of the most annoying things about OccupyLA was that the New Age contingent kept inviting Williamson to speak. Funny no one ever asked her about the Unity Church teaching that "money is God in action."

Also, please don't forget these evil New Agers who want to help "at risk youth" by inducting them into David Lynch's religion.
