Open letter to Kimberly Nelson, News Anchor ABC 4, UT regarding the scheduled airing of delusional panic-mongering

Dear Kimberly Nelson,

It has come to my attention that you, Kimberly Nelson, will be airing an interview with Judy Byington, author of a book entitled Twenty-Two Faces which purports to be the true story of one Jenny Hill, an alleged victim of the bizarre and controversial psychiatric condition known as Dissociative Identity Disorder [DID] (formerly listed as Multiple Personality Disorder [MPD]).
However dubious the legitimacy of DID, this diagnosis is by far the least of the problems with Byington’s book. Twenty-Two Faces is openly rife with archaic demonologies, and paranoid conspiracy theories being presented as root causes to the disturbances in Ms. Hill’s troubled mind. That Jenny Hill -- a former drug addict and prostitute with a history of mental illness -- is troubled seems indisputable, but Byington’s book seeks to expose an alleged satanic government plot behind Hill’s mental malaise that is tantamount to speculation upon who, exactly, is beaming voices into the heads of schizophrenics. Such an ignorant approach to therapeutic practice is harmful to mental health consumers, and your endorsement of such can hardly be of any positive value to your viewers.

Open letter to Dr. Phil: "a public mental health menace"

Dear Dr. Phil,

I write this letter to you with little hope of conveying information of which you were previously unaware. Rather, I write this letter so that the general public may be made aware of what you should already be well aware of, in hopes that they may appropriately measure your credibility following your scheduled broadcast of October 31st -- an episode which promises to be full of misinformation, delusions, harmful false accusations, and lies. ...READ THE FULL LETTER

Repeal the Opinion Entitlement: how the 'right to an opinion' cripples debate

Somewhere lurking amongst middle-American fears of local Al-Qaeda operative cells, satanic cults, and White House-hatched Socialist coups is the specter of the anti-American “entitlement”. Entitlements -- or “hand-outs” -- coddle the weak, foster a culture of dependency, and discourage healthy self-reliance. They mock the American ideals of hard work, independence, and self-determined grit.
...Or so we’re told by those who believe that they are entitled to their opinion on the matter. I believe, however, that this entitlement, too -- the Opinion Entitlement -- should also be questioned for the deleterious effects it has had upon those whom it is meant to protect.  Read the rest...

Lies can kill: Radical Islam and the mythology of Satanic Ritual Abuse

By: Plain Speaker, author,

In the past, I have written about domestic (North American) extremist groups exploiting Satanic Ritual Abuse lies & conspiracy fantasies to incite hatred of and violence against innocent persons in our society.
Today, I’m going to expose the reality of international extremist groups including Al Qaeda exploiting the same vile lies. Specifically, the fact that convicted Al Qaeda terrorist operatives have used the Satanic Ritual Abuse related lies – about America and other Western nations supposedly being controlled by satanic pedophile child-killers – to incite hatred and murderous violence. ...Read the rest...

Replies to '22 Faces' Claims: Hard Questions for Author Judy Byington

Recently, I was charged with the unfortunate task of reviewing a hysterical piece of supernatural horror crime-genre pulp "literature" entitled 22 Faces by Judy Byington. This proved to be an infuriating task. The book -- poorly written, poorly plotted, bloated with repetitious events, contradictions, and intellectually insulting cartoon-like caricatures -- claimed to be a work of non-fiction, though defying all reason with its consistent references to supernatural events. The protagonist of the book, Jenny Hill, is described as having been born under the auspice of prophecy, is claimed to have been saved from ritual murder by way of divine intervention... she has suffered demonic possession, dabbled in "levitation", possesses ESP, and has personally heard the guiding voice of God.
Naturally, my review expressed skepticism.
