More Videos From That Big Democratic Contributor "Ramtha"

(AKA JZ Knight.)

Along with a whole bunch of other links from the Freedom Foundation, which has been doing great investigative work on this scandalous woman.

J.Z. Knight and her Ramtha School of Enlightenment are in the news--and not in a positive way. You can't browse the internet today without seeing her name associated with a shocking video that shows Ramtha spewing anti-Catholic, anti-Semitic, and anti-gay rhetoric during one of her "enlightenment" sermons.

This story has come to light largely because of the Freedom Foundation's tenacity and research into local government issues in Thurston County. The Ramtha story came to our attention when a local activist contacted the Freedom Foundation asking how we could help shine some light on the cult activity taking place there.

The missing links in their list are interesting.  Three of our local TV stations, KOMO 4, Q13, and KCTS do not appear, nor does our on-line only newspaper, the Seattle PI.  There is no link there to any story by a Seattle alternative newspaper, the Strangler, which is a bit of a surprise since I think they would like Ramtha's anti-Catholic sentiments, and might be intrigued by her (his?) theory that: "All gay men were once Catholic women."

(Of course, the list might be incomplete.)

If you have watched any of those videos, you'll understand why I think posts on Ramtha are especially appropriate on Halloween.

(As far as I know, the Obama campaign hasn't given back her contributions, though other Democrats have donated theirs to good causes.)

1. I don't think the contributions were returned, in fact. I believe they were donated to other causes. Which... I'm OK with, actually.

I remember hearing that in a short blurb, feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

4. Jeff - I think you are right about that, at least for the donations I've heard about.

I'll correct the post.

5. Receiving contributions from that bunch is no different than taking funds from any hate group and the money should have been promptly returned. Taking it, using it, donating it or burning it all acknowledge and validate the group that sent it.
The same applies to Obama taking donations from Moslims and foreign contributors while scrubbing the source.

6. Now that everyone knows what kind of kooky hateful filth JZ Knight actually spouts, hopefully she will be radioactive in politics, and no one will welcome her money or endorsement. That said, I think the Republicans would have been equally happy to take Knights money and support at first, and equally inclined to toss it like a hot potato once the truth about Knight came out.
