I always reckoned narco billions were behind some of their more slick propaganda efforts.

This is what I meant by the Thread "Is Spiritualism becoming Spiritism, and Spiritism becoming ______ ?"

Spiritualism seems to have picked up the Spiritist belief in reincarnation, and Spiritism seems to be degenerating to voodoo.

Whoever they got in to carve those statues wasn't much cop. They all look the same, like a row of tooled up lawn jockeys.
Full page ad in May TW in colour inside front cover. One of their Billy Grahams doing a one nighter in London. Free will contribution 5.00.

I can see this type of thing appealing to expat Spanish chambermaids and the like but it'll never catch on amongst the native English. Far too alien and exotic!

With all due respect you seem to know nothing about spiritism in Brazil.

I think he may be a Spiritist and this piece does paint a pretty negative picture but thn talking to a Brazilian Spiritist he did point out that Spiritism covers the same broad ground Spiritualism does from semi Catholic through traditional Spiritism and out beyond voodoo.

Now my memory was that this video is not based in Brazil

I can not figure why someone would become a member on this website, navigate to a year-old thread about Spiritism and then post only a single sentence on the subject.... Question

I guess it takes all types to make a world. Neutral

We've been having a bit of knock-about fun with the new member but, on a serious note, the link below came from a thread elsewhere. I found some of the short video sections fairly illuminating:

The original fotos posted aren't on this site. I had to type in The Holy Thugs in my search engine, and the article that LeftBehind (with the fotos) showed up. I must say, it was rather interesting. I would say this isn't Kardecianism, but more of a Catholic form of Spiritism. One can find this sort of activity in the Roman Catholic Church, so people shouldn't be surprised or repulsed by the fact that Spiritists in countries dominated by Roman Catholicism would practice something like this.
