Hay House announced late last year that they had let Doreen Virtue go. This seemed a natural step for them to take after having to refund hundreds of people who felt their certificates with Doreen Virtue were worthless after she turned around and trashed her own work, claiming to have been demon-possessed while teaching it.
However, now Hay House are not only publishing the book, they are offering it as a video course online. So much for letting Doreen Virtue go!! I guess they figured it has all blown over now and nobody thinks it is important to hold Doreen Virtue accountable any longer. I’m thinking we need to make them rethink that decision. Please email Reid Tracy, CEO of Hay House, and let him know how you feel: RTracy@hayhouse.com
Robert Reeves is the co-author of this book, titled ’21 Days to Higher Energy.’ As some of you may know, Doreen Virtue has encouraged her Christian followers to burn her New Age works (and some of them gladly said they would buy her books to do just that lol). The book isn’t out until October this year, which means that it was written and produced long after DV’s conversion and her making highly intolerant statements against New Age teachings.
I think this shows poor judgement on behalf of Robert Reeves who could not have failed to be aware some of DV’s extremist views at the time of going ahead with this project, such as her labeling homosexuality a sin – Especially with him being an openly gay man. It makes him come across as greedy and insincere.
Doreen Virtue is part of a group called Reasons for Jesus on Facebook. This group has in its house rules that acceptance of homosexuality is not allowed:
How can Hay House allow an openly homophobic author on their roster? Doreen Virtue actively encourages her following to join this group on FB and she even co-moderated it for a while. I’m not ruling out that she quit the group after I put her presence there in the spotlight. She likes to try to keep playing both sides of the fence and I like to continue to make that impossible for her.
How can Robert Reeves be OK with this? It’s Pride Month as I type this and I’m aghast at the lack of publicity in the New Age community around what is happening here. I mean, really…? Wake up, people!!!!!
Oh the irony.
One lady in the Reasons for Jesus group just posted this:
I won’t post the whole discussion that followed but basically, they all agree that New Age readings are influenced by demonic forces and that the OP should just delete the reading. Some also suggest asking for a refund – Ironic since they bashed the New Age community for wanting their certificate courses refunded.
How OK are you with Hay House pushing an author who is anti-gay and anti-New Age? Here is Reid Tracy’s email address once more: RTracy@hayhouse.com
And Robert Reeves, if you are reading this… Bless your soul – It’s time to take your own advice for this week’s readings and let go of old patterns. Working with a homophobic charlatan can bring nothing of benefit for the Highest Good. But maybe you are like Melania… Maybe you really don’t care…?
