I think many of you guys might know about the satanic ritual abuse panic back from the 1980s and 90s, its champions like Lauren Stratford and Mike Warnake terrorized many children and even got people in legal trouble. However they never would have gotten their rise with out the help of Johanna Michaelsen, a fundamentalist writer who became famous after supposedly coming out of the "occult" who her self had connections to Hal Lindsey. The fall of these two characters in the 1990s also made Johanna go away... until now! She is trying to make a comeback warning fundies about the dangers of Yoga since its gotten so popluar and "crept" into their churches.  I heard she is even trying to republish her book that tell about how she was an "apprentice" to a "psychic" surgeon, I talked about this on this forums a few years ago so search it up if you want.

I think I found plenty of evidence that she is lying delusional (don't think too much is needed to prove so) but I think its good to let everyone know a discredited conspiracy believing fundamentalist Christian is trying to make a comeback

If there is a buck to be made and fools around, these kinds of people just repackage the same old shit and dish it out.

Oh, hail Satan.
Yo, put that in your pipe and smoke it.  Quit ragging on my Lord.

what always bothered me about her was trying figure out was she just deluded or a con artist who wanted money and attention, maybe a bit of both? someone believed their scams were okay because they taught people about Jesus?

There are times when I actually get a little annoyed at myself for not being able to convince myself that it's ok to profit off of idiots. They're sitting there, just begging to be exploited and gawddammit, I know how to do it!!!!!

Sigh. Me and my stupid ethics.

i don't know why but I think I waste way too much time on her, ugh..... I mean after I found out no one has really debunked her before I went over board in trying to refute her.
