Here’s another reason why you shouldn’t put too much stock in the mainstream media when it comes to honest reporting – the Washington Post’s elite religion writer has just revealed that she has been a life-long enthusiast of the occult and thinks all religions are "magic."
Breitbart is reporting on the revelation of Sally Quinn, whose late husband Bill Bradlee was the former executive editor of the Washington Post, and who has been handling religion coverage for the publication for years. In her new memoir, she admits to practicing the dark arts, such as voodoo and the Ouija board, has consulted psychics and even mediums to contact her deceased husband.
Even though she presented herself as an agnostic to Post readers, her memoir reveals that she has been a believer in the occult and black magic since her youth and has regularly engaged in these practices.
In fact, she is so certain of her own dark powers, that she believes she possesses the power to murder people. This is based on the admission in her memoir that she has put a hex on three people who died.
As Breitbart’s John Nolte reports, the three unfortunate souls involved “ . . . [A] young woman who committed suicide after flirting with Quinn’s boyfriend; a magazine editor who published an unflattering profile of her, who decades later died of cancer; a psychic who died of a cerebral hemorrhage before the end of the year after telling Quinn something she did not want to hear.”
But wait! According to a glowing interview and book review published by the Washingtonian, she swore off the dark arts when her third curse resulted in a death. She suddenly panicked, believing that the curses she had placed on people were responsible for her son’s illness so she vowed never to dabble in the dark arts again.
Her son, Quinn, was born with velo-cardio-facial syndrome, which causes a variety of symptoms such as heart problems, developmental delays, learning disabilities and frequent infections.
Does this mean she repented? Absolutely not! She’s just looking out for her own hide – and that of her son – and claims to have stopped practicing it – but that doesn’t mean she stopped believing in it.
As she recently told USA Today, she had an epiphany that “all of the things that I had believed in, all of the magic that I had believed in, was just as legitimate as organized religion, of Islam or of Judaism or of Catholicism, or of Protestantism. And it was just that it wasn’t organized in that way and that therefore didn’t have that respect. So I began to see that all religion was magic, and it is.”
Why on earth would a major news publication allow someone so seriously confused about the spiritual life to be the author of a column on faith? And then to do so without properly informing readers of her true background!
Without being made to reveal her true beliefs, Quinn was permitted to publish blistering critiques of Christians such as one on Sarah Palin in which she ridiculed the former Alaska governor for her decision to put her life in the hands of her Creator. She also wrote articles such as Mitt Romney’s God problem and Will the Catholic Church become it’s own relic?
“What in God’s name is going on here?” asks Nolte. “We have just discovered that one of the primary movers and shakers of the last half-century is a practicing occultist, and…nothing. Nobody cares. The information is dropped as though Quinn’s tell-all is the usual-usual about plastic surgeries and sex.”
Even worse, people are now asking Quinn to put a deadly hex on President Trump.
The only good news in this story is that “Quinn is not a very good or persuasive writer,” Nolte writes. “Everything she argues has the stench of a dilettante, a socialite with Big Thinks who is allowed to share them through a newspaper obligated to pander to the boss’s wife.”
But she did indeed pen articles for years that were marked with “a forked serpent’s tongue” and which had a particular vengeance for Christianity which she claims she wants to see succeed. But the only way this can happen is if we stop being Christian, she says.
“In a free country, I am perfectly fine with a practicing occultist, even one who believes she has murdered three innocent people, working for a newspaper, even writing about faith and religion,” Nolte writes.
“But if the High Priestess of D.C. Society is going to write about faith, lecture on faith, and use the power of the Washington Post to try and persuade others, at the very least, readers should be informed of that writer’s religious beliefs. Not only were we not informed; we were misled and outright lied to … for years.”
He rightly concludes: “No wonder, for even Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light.” (2Cor 11:14)
