Jesus Christ, but I hate these slimebags

I got email just now from Evolutionary Leaders. The source sounds promising on the surface, so I opened it. Big mistake. Bad for my blood pressure.

Are you tired of sitting around while our environment is being destroyed?

Yes! Yes, I am!

Do you feel helpless, angry or powerless to make a difference
as you watch millions of gallons of oil pouring into the Gulf every day
with no end in sight and thousands losing their lives and their livelihoods?


Join The Gulf Call to Sacred Action!

Yes! Wait…”sacred” action? Huh?

The Evolutionary Leaders: In Service to Conscious Evolution have joined together
to be a loud and important voice for all who feel powerless.

The People Need You ~ The Gulf Needs You

And then there’s some fol-de-rol about working via telephone and internet with tens of thousands taking action and making a “powerful impact for the good of humanity” without any of explanation about what will be done. Until we get to the meat of the story.

We begin by setting our collective intention. Join Deepak Chopra to set our powerful vision and participate in a worldwide Intention Experiment with renowned author and scientist Lynne McTaggart. Explore how our collective intention, our voice and our commitment can impact the cleanup of the oil spill. And then we will be graced by Jean Houston who will share with us why this time matters and why we matter.

Jebus. Deepak Chopra. They’re going to get a bunch of people to sit around and wish the problem away. These people are Newage dead weight.

Our collective prayers and thoughts have the power to cause a profound shift on the planet. Pray with some of the most powerful spiritual thought leaders — Reverend Michael Bernard Beckwith, Joan Borysenko, James O’Dea and more. Together we discover that we have the power to change the world.

Prayer will never, ever change the world. Prayer is an excuse to lie about doing nothing and pretend you are making a difference.

Open up and connect to the deeper heart of our planet where we hear our individual and collective call to action. Together with sacred activists Barbara Marx Hubbard, Gregg Braden, and Andrew Harvey, we will take back our power and move into powerful action that will forever change our lives and the lives of generations to come.

Demented fuckwits, every one. You know, none of these cretins are fundamentalists, they probably smile a lot, and what they all propose is absolutely harmless, in the sense that it doesn’t do anything, anything at all…but they are the killers, the mind-rot, the lazy brained lotus eaters who will watch civilization crumble away while chanting that we’re becoming closer and closer to Mother Nature. I’m less worried about the ranting theocrats and openly anti-science thugs than I am these numbing, mindless, happy-talking liars who lead the gullible down an easy, cheerful path to destruction. At least the fundie kooks do their best to make their way look really hateful and hideous.

Get in the feckin’ sack, Newage know-nothings.

There. Dara O’Briain always makes me feel a little better.
