(Tea Party 247) – Why is it that behind every wealthy and powerful leftist, there’s a sex criminal?
Has anyone else noticed this?
A spiritual healer in Brazil who goes by the name João de Deus, or John of God and who has been featured in an Oprah special has been sentenced to prison.
On Thursday, a judge in Goias handed down a 19-year sentence for the numerous incidents of sexual abuse that had been levied against him.
This “John of God” was convicted of raping four different women, according to a statement from the court.
The 77-year-old’s lawyers said that they plan to appeal the decision in a statement.
João Teixeira de Faria drew people from all over the world to his small city two hours west of capital, Brasilia, with promises he could treat everything from depression to cancer, and attended to as many as 10,000 patients per week. Hundreds of women, including his daughter, alleged he regularly engaged in abuse ranging from groping to rape.
Is there anyone sicker than someone who deceives people into believe he has true healing powers from the Creator of the universe and uses that power to commit the most despicable crime you can commit against someone else short of murder?
Well, among his huge following was none other than Oprah Winfrey, the American talk show icon who has gotten decidedly left-leaning over the years.
Even Oprah Winfrey visited João de Deus in 2012 to interview him for her talk show, and called him “inspiring.” After the accusations surfaced, Winfrey issued a statement saying she sympathized with the alleged victims and hoped they receive justice.
João de Deus is facing additional cases related to 10 sex crimes, according to the court’s statement.
Oprah has long been a hugely influential teacher of the new age, an occultish teaching that leads many into cult-like following of figures like this rapist.
CBN writes of a documentary that exposes the occult-side of Oprah’s teachings:
In Don’t Drink the Kool-Aid, Steele offers a quick overview of some of the pervading philosophies presented by Oprah to her audience. These supposedly “new” ideas are really just old schemes of the devil wrapped in pretty packaging. New agers recycle the same idea that every man is a son of God, man can be like God, and that we are the source of our salvation.
Most recently, and arguably most lethal, Oprah launched a virtual classroom to promote and encourage Tolle’s A New Earth, which is a selection for her book club. Ten million-plus students met online once a week for 10 lessons earlier this year and became “awakened,” or mind trained by Tolle and Oprah. This interactive teaching is still available on Oprah.com.
Basically, Tolle teaches:
- A glimpse will initiate awakening, which is irreversible.
- We are the light.
- Sin means missing the point of exit.
- We have a choice: evolve or die.
- Heaven is not a location but an inner realm of consciousness.
- The source of all energy is within you.
- Jesus is an archetypal figure. He is every man and woman.
Of Tolle’s A New Earth, Oprah says, “Being able to share this material with you is a gift and a part of the fulfillment of my life’s purpose.”
