The Power, the Glory, the Reaction : OR FALSE PROPHET?

March 01, 1992|"T he Power, the Glory, the Glitz," the Feb. 16 profile of Marianne Williamson by Times staff writer Terry Pristin, has produced a large response from readers, about equally divided between praise and criticism of the controversial lecturer. A sampling:

You state that "Williamson . . . has been mentioned in the same breath as Mother Teresa" but fail to mention the source. Was it Robin Williams or Woody Allen? In looking at photos of Williamson and Mother Teresa, I'm certain they do not have their nails done at the same salon.

An "explosive temper," a self-proclaimed "bitch for God"--these are at fundamental odds with the teachings of both "A Course in Miracles" and the Christian Bible.

C'mon, don't overlook the cosmic obvious: The new book, her self-deprecating humor that masks a cruel indifference toward her employees, her romantic link with Hollywood stars, the empty smile. It's so simple: This is Terry Cole Whittaker 10 years later with her hair dyed and silicone facial injections, right? It has a lot to do with Hollywood, but precious little to do with spirit.
