Under The Influence
Of The Virgin Mary
Nicholaus de Koning
Here's another suggestion for your Goofy Religions page.
It's Roman Catholic, but pretty far out even for them.
Check it out:
The main premise is to sell copies of a book called "The Trial of America." Written by one Ms. Sampair, this book allegedly was written by her "automatically" while under the influence (so to speak) of the virgin Mary.
The message is that if "enough people pray the rosary, the Virgin Mary will save the world and the tribulations of the End Times will be averted." The website exists to promote sales of the book and rosaries.
I signed their guest book (in a facetious moment) and they sent me an e-mail asking for a "gift" to help send out more rosaries. "Remember, the more rosaries go out, the closer Our Lady comes to her goal of saving the world." I was nonplussed, to say the least. I e-mailed back some questions about this, but was ignored.
Keep up the good work!
