Meet the World’s Most Powerful ‘Witch’

A friend on Facebook pointed me to the amazing website of Kevin Carlyon, who declares himself to be “the high priest of British white witches” and “possibly one of the world’s most powerful witches and spellcasters.” I like the “possibly” — you don’t want to be too brash about these things, you know. Just reading …

WND Cites ‘Expert’ on ‘Demonology’

It’s Halloween time and you know what that means. It means we get treated to the bleatings of Christian fundamentalists who think that participating in Halloween opens children (and adults, presumably) up to demonic possession. Whatever the hell that is. The Worldnetdaily is concerned with more than Halloween, though; they’re concerned about the popularity of …

Jacobs’ Son Prevents Presidential Assassinations

It turns out that Cindy Jacobs’ amazing powers are not limited to just her. Her 6-year old son also has the special magic. He can even prevent the assassination of the president through the overwhelming power of his prayers. Seriously, I can’t imagine why anyone takes this woman seriously.

Pat Robertson on Healing Deafness

They really need to stop having Pat Robertson answer questions from viewers on the 700 Club. It seems every time he does he says something that’s either idiotic or vile. This one is both, as he tells a mother that she must be doing something wrong if her prayers to heal her deaf son aren’t …

Driving Makes Womens’ Pelvises ‘Roll Up’

Pat Robertson and Faith Healing

As a teenager I watched the 700 Club (literally) religiously. It was on in our house every day and almost always included Pat Robertson closing his eyes tightly (the tighter you close them, the better the connection to God, apparently) and telling no one in particular that God was healing them of vague maladies. He …

Cindy Jacobs continues to make outlandish and ridiculous claims about her magical power to heal people, with no evidence whatsoever to back them up. Her latest is to claim that she once made a woman grow a new cheek bone and her own tumor that the devil had placed “behind my female organs or whatever.”

Fake “exorcist” and con man Bob Larson’s current meal tickets, his teenage daughter and her two friends that he markets as the Charlie’s Angels of exorcism, are hitting England on their world tour of nonsense. And they’re blathering on about Harry Potter books and sexually transmitted demons.

Fun With Cindy Jacobs

Our old friend Cindy Jacobs unleashes the “whirlwind of God,” knocking over credulous audience members and delivers a message from God that He will “kiss the ground of Kansas.” This kind of thing cracks me up to watch. It’s such a transparent scam that I continue to be astonished that anyone could fall for it. …

Pat Robertson’s Operation Blessing Scam

Pat Robertson and his followers make a big deal about Operation Blessing, his longtime charity wing that makes all kinds of claims about all the good things they do. Critics have long accused him of using that charity to further his financial investments, especially in African mining. A new documentary provides evidence for those criticisms, …
