Wow! The Washington Post’s new slogan, ‘Democracy Dies In Darkness’ has taken on a whole new meaning. Check out what they’ve been hiding for YEARS.
Sally Quinn, the widow of Washington Post Vice President and Executive Editor, Ben Bradlee, has been a practitioner of the Dark Arts for years, and it was well known in her ‘social circles’.
She is also a religion writer for Washington Post — and her own beliefs were mischaracterized to her readers. They weren’t told that she was an ardent practitioner of occultism, rather that she was a curious non-believer.
As an example, in November of 2011, Quinn published a column celebrating the five year anniversary of On Faith, which she co-founded with Jon Meacham, the man most famous for destroying Newsweek. In the column, Quinn described her beliefs and non-beliefs in this way:
Although I called myself an atheist when we started this site, I no longer do[.] … I don’t call myself agnostic. That doesn’t work for me. It simply means you don’t know. By that definition we are all agnostic. The pope is agnostic. We may believe, but we don’t know. I wouldn’t call myself a seeker, either. If I had to define myself, I would say I was a learner. And this has been an extraordinary learning experience.
And it was left at that.
But Quinn clearly isn’t just dabbling.
She has used the dark arts to contact her husband since his death in 2014.
She says that she believes her ‘hexes’ have killed 3 people.
Thanks to her just-released memoir, however, we now know the truth, that far from being an agnostic, Quinn was not only a true believer in the occult, black magic, and voodoo, she practiced these dark arts in the most wicked ways imaginable.
In fact, Quinn believes in the dark arts to a point where is certain she possesses the ability to murder people through the power of a hex, and on three occasions, with murder in her heart, she used that power. In her own mind, she is responsible for the deaths of three people whose only sin was offending her in some way.
You can take this one of two ways — her ‘spells’ caused the death of three people and she is a serial killer, or she’s a complete nutjob.
Either way, how is she still writing persuasive articles about religion for the Washington Post?
Quinn is certainly free to practice any religion or belief system that she wants to, and be as out there as she pleases, but isn’t the onus on the Washington Post to clearly define what it is that she does believe so that readers know?
It’s not like she’s a street reporter covering local events.
She’s writing about religion.
Quinn has written about the Catholic faith, blasted Christians, and she hasn’t been open about what she believes and her own biases.
Without being required to reveal her true self, the Washington Post allowed Quinn to blast Christians like Sarah Palin and write about “A Catholic ‘war on women’” and “Chick-Fil-A day: Don’t boycott. Infiltrate” and “Mitt Romney’s God problem” and “Will the Catholic Church become its own relic?”
The only good news is that Quinn is not a very good or persuasive writer. 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.
She’s called for Christians to basically no longer be Christian — for ‘progress’, of course. No ulterior motive there at all.
Christians, especially Catholics, seem to be her favorite targets.
Nevertheless, a good faith perusal of Quinn’s religious columns reveals a forked serpent’s tongue, or in today’s parlance, a concern troll. Quinn frequently singles out Christianity and, with only the very best of intentions — because, you know, she wants to see it succeed, urges Christians and the Christian church to stop being Christian:
Some 98 percent of sexually experienced Catholics have used birth control even though it is considered a sin by the church. The same percentage of Catholic women have abortions as non-Catholic women. The church is against women in its hierarchy. Women who haven’t already are going to start walking away. The church is against homosexuality. Gay Catholics who have not already will surely start walking. Priests are not always celibate. Soon they may not want to live such hypocrisy.
This is a HUGE reason why the public has so little trust in the Media (D).
They leave out the biases that their ‘reporters’ have.
We all have biases, and to claim that her biases don’t affect the tone of the articles she writes is completely ridiculous.
What do you think of the Washington Post hiding this for years?
Do you think they should come clean about Sally Quinn’s beliefs?
