Robin Williams Probably Consorted With Demons, Says WND In Touching Memorial Ad
It's kind of beautiful how, in the midst of tragedy, some people can calmly assess the situation and find a way to make things just a little shittier. Consider the great minds at conspiracy wackaloon hub WND, who took the occasion of Robin William's suicide to pimp DVDs about the Satanic influence of pop culture.
The piece, an excerpt of a column/ad by one Joe Schimmel of "Goodfight Ministries," pretends to explain what REALLY happened to Williams, and why:
Everybody is currently talking about Robin Williams and his tragic suicide. Many are puzzled as to how a man, who made so many people laugh, could be so depressed that he would violently end his life. What people are not learning is the deeper truth about the insidious forces that tormented Robin Williams and drove him to suicide.
Robin Williams acknowledged that he had opened himself up to transformative demonic powers that aided him on stage. Without the aid of such demonic powers, it is likely that you would have never have heard of Robin Williams and many other famous celebrities. Williams also recognized that these powers had manifested a very evil influence on stage and that there could be a hefty price to pay for their assistance. Williams told James Kaplan of US Weekly:
“Yeah! Literally, it's like possession -- all of a sudden you're in, and because it's in front of a live audience, you just get this energy that just starts going…But there's also that thing -- it is possession. In the old days you'd be burned for it…But there is something empowering about it. I mean, it is a place where you are totally -- it is Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, where you really can become this other force. Maybe that's why I don't need to play evil characters [in movies], 'cause sometimes onstage you can cross that line and come back. Clubs are a weird kind of petri dish environment. I mean, that's where people can get as dark as they can in comedy -- in the name of comedy, be talking about outrageous stuff and somehow come out the other side. I mean, that's one place where you really want to push it” (Robin Williams, "Robin Williams,” by James Kaplan, US Weekly, January, 1999, p. 53).
Williams’ last statement quoted above answers the question as to why the demonic powers use entertainers. Their goal is to promote evil and darkness and increase mankind’s rebellion against God.
Or maybe members of the sane people community would know that Williams was saying that in Olden Times, superstitious, unsophisticated folk used to label just about anything out of the ordinary as "demonic," and that he was not "admitting" that he loved to dance skyclad with the Faerie Folk and to summon the helper imps of the Great Hornéd One so they could all have a Hollywood Orgy. Mind you, if Williams did dance skyclad, he'd have at least kept warm, since the man had as much body hair as Chewbacca.
Schimmel, of course, is pushing an informative DVD called "Hollywood Unmasked 2" for only $19.95 (or you can buy it and part 1 for a special low-low price), but it would be wrong to think he's just capitalizing on Williams's death -- what part of "Ministry" did you not understand? Did Jesus not build your hot rod? And with the excerpt at WND, Schimmel's pushing They Sold Their Souls For Rock N Roll, a three-hour DVD, for the special Dead Entertainer price of only $15.95, and there's nothing ghoulish about that, either.
We'd say something about the how the real cause of Williams's problems wasn't demons but depression, complicated by a recent diagnosis of Parkinsons, but Schimmel already advises us that there is no such thing as a medical treatment for depression:
Depression can have many sources, but has only one ultimate remedy. True joy can only come from a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ and the infilling of His Holy Spirit. The fruit of the Spirit is manifold and includes love and joy. Let us remember that there are a lot of hurting people out there like Robin Williams, who are filled with hopelessness and despair. May God make us sensitive to their needs and help us to show them His great love through our concern, willingness to help and sharing the gospel.
Also, please buy some shitty Jesus DVDs, amen.
