Danger from The Occult!!
Whistleblower — a Christian Right magazine — has a preview of their upcoming “exposé” of the ever-growing and menacing Death Movement in America. This feature story begins with Terri Schiavo being brutally murdered by wicked judges, and then expands into physician-assisted suicide, abortion and stem cell research.
Underlying America’s expanding Death Movement is, of course, the Occult! Ooooohhhh!!! You know the drill — an Eagle Scout listens to something by Slayer, and instantly turns into a bug-eyed, cat-torturing fiend.
Apparently just before Terri Schiavo died, Michael Schiavo’s attorney described her as looking “beautiful” and “peaceful.” And that’s all it took — the right wing hysteria machine went into high gear.
This lawyer used to be a hospice volunteer, and he wrote a book describing some of his spiritual experiences with dying patients. The Whistleblower article — and their description of his book — is using out-of-context quotes to conjure up this vast evil occult conspiracy to take over America. And of course the press is guilty because they failed to publicize the lawyer’s New Age beliefs. This evil menace was kept hidden from the public by the godless liberal media.
There’s a sharp clash between Christianity and New Age/Occult philosophies. One believes that you’re just a sinning sack of S&%# who needs to turn to God for mercy and guidance. The other believes that you have a large degree of knowledge and power over your personal life; that you create your own destiny. And the Christian Right believes that “there ain’t room in this town for the two of us.”
A lot of Christian leaders hate the New Age movement more than anything, and they’ll use every available Rovian/Joseph Goebbels technique to smear it and suppress it.
