Didn't we already do this one, or is there another mummified cult leader lying around?

Ms Carlson appeared on an episode of Dr Phil in 2020, when she told the television host she had performed spiritual brain "surgeries" and had been reborn more than 400 times.

Inventory on crazy seems pretty high right now so who knows?

Child abuse charges follow

Because of course they do.

Love Has Won cult? No wonder Rodgers is pissed at Gutekunst.

The corpse was decorated with Christmas lights.


ummm....ok....

How is mummification and building a shrine abuse of a corpse?

I'm sure it was all rather reverent actually

wacky but reverent

when I go I'm jamming the heater in my sauna
everything except taxes is on auto pay
I'm hoping I'll lay there undisturbed for at least 6 months
likely won't smell at all

She claimed to be the "Mother of God?" That's pretty out there. I once had a psych. pt. telling us her boyfriend, that was also with us, was "the Lamb of God." Of course she was pretty out there. I'd only ever heard him claim to be a swami.

I do not "play" with a dead body. Mother sits in her chair all day and I Leave her alone.

depends on how its done. it is legal to do.  But  have to follow safety laws bout.  just taking the body and doing it yourself is a no no.

That's only proper when it's Rick Santorum taking a dead fetus home for a play-date with his kids.

jumac: zepillin: How is mummification and building a shrine abuse of a corpse?

I can see how the legal phrase "abusing a corpse" would refer to exactly that

sort of like how "presumption of innocence" actually means presumption of not guilty, assumption of guilty at trial

and not the other way around

And religious people call us non-belief people "unnatural" and "abhorrent". *shakes head*

It's one of those things that's just so goddamned insane, I need to reference it now and then so other kind people like you can confirm that I didn't confabulate the knowledge from nothingness.

Before we cast judgement, were they more the tasteful LED small white lights variety or the tacky big bulky multi-color incandescents?

A cult that kills its leader instead of other people is a refreshing change that I can get behind.

/instead of her being in a sleeping bag dirt napping, i would imagine her
sitting up like Norman Bates' mom with the lights plugged in for a festive display.

Also known as "sky burial", the body is disassembled and fed to wild birds of prey. It's a practice most associated with Tibet.

Hm, good point. I guess I saw the Manson-looking mugshot and made the assumption

Possibly NSFW, or if the idea of being fed to birds is disturbing to you:

Prison is an appropriate punishment for subjecting children to this.
 
2021-05-07 7:46:46 AM  
It looks like she died, they played too much Skyrim and tried to keep her around as Mother, and the child abuse is just* "you can't have mummies if you have children".

Honestly, none of the charges mean much to me. I'm glad any cult gets broken up, but I really couldn't care much less about mummifying a loved one.

*Which, I mean, is only child abuse if you think "teaching your kid crazy stuff is child abuse" but as an atheist who doesn't believe in magic or the supernatural I don't quite know where I'd draw such a line.

I figured you meant that.

At least they weren't ritualistically eating her body or hanging knick-knacks of her being killed around the house.

I looked it up and it seems that she announced she had advanced cancer a few months back.  Unless they snuffed her early it might have been natural causes.

And they did modify the corpse on their own time too. Reports that they at least melon balled her eyes out.

Yeah, this. It's weird and creepy to teach kids it's okay to mummify a corpse and keep it on display, and yet millions of people all over the world practice ritualistic cannibalism with their kids every Sunday mass. Like, okay, it's not really human flesh and blood, but they sure think it is, and they're teaching their kids that, so...

Or even just prayer.

Praying to Jesus, praying to the nightmother, who cares?
