    Default The Hidden Dangers of The Rainbow

    The Hidden Dangers of The Rainbow


    The Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow, by Constance Cumbey, was published in 1982. It became an instant bestseller in conservative evangelical and fundamentalist Protestant circles, and became controversial in those same social groups, for its assertion that the New Age movement was set to infiltrate modern culture. In fact, these days, Cumbey is something of a persona non grata in those circles; they closed ranks on her because they refused to believe her assertions that the New Age movement was, in fact, a vast conspiracy of networks, designed to get all of us to blindly, unthinkingly accept a one-world government and religion.

    Much of what she said has come to pass, in some ways. Our definition of tolerance, for example, has changed. We have gone from defining that term as "I have to barely put up with something, but I don't have to like it" to "I must accept everyone as my equal, even if they live the most squalid life imaginable; in other words, there is no such thing as an unacceptable belief system or set of actions, except those associated with fundamentalist religions."

    I think the reaction I just mentioned - in which Cumbey has become persona non grata in certain circles - is motivated by our common cultural belief that a belief in a conspiracy theory is the result (or symptom) of emotional or mental disturbance. We have clinical definitions of disorders like paranoid schizophrenia and paranoid personality disorder in secular psychiatry; this secular-psychiatric thinking has infiltrated evangelical and fundamentalist Christianity to a certain extent, meaning that even this subculture is prone to seeing a conspiracy theorist (and Cumbey could certainly be called one based on the material in this book) as a member of the homeless, tinfoil hat crowd, worthy of committment to a psychiatric institution.

    I feel that nothing could be further from the truth. Cumbey is currently - and was at the time of this book's publication - a practicing attorney in Michigan. Specifically, she practices in the Detroit metropolitan area. When she published The Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow, she was heavily involved in the Michigan political scene, but had to give that political involvement up when the book became a runaway bestseller. She predicted a sea change in the way society as a whole would see such things as religious tolerance, and what she predicted has started to take hold in the wider society.

    I certainly like to meet her. I'll be in Smished-again/Detroit area in October.

    If I recall right, there were claims that Constance Cumbey wasn't her real name and she was lumped with Mike Warnke who was more or less proven to not be a former warlock involved with the Illuminati as he claimed.

    Constance devoted a whole chapter to denouncing my good friend and confidant Marylin Ferguson (The Aquarian Conspiracy) who channeled Kenny Uston for me. (see ZG Interview second to last page). zg

    Default asian a good post

    and a comment to reinforce your thinking on lucky people . I have a friend who goes to casinos with us . He does not count and if he is not sure on a question of BS he asks . He has more money then brains but very down to earth and loves to whack a casino . I think it is mainly cause of some of his nefarious activities such as smuggling booze and cigs to high tax states and things like that . The guy is totally lucky . Seven years ago we were in the Bahamas at the golden palace playing a $50.00 minimum $5,000.00 max table with the standard shoe etc etc etc . we started playing at 1 in the afternoon and the whole table was winning but he was the biggest winner as he hit 2 shoes in a row where he only lost 1 hand out of all that were dealt and he was playing 2 hands . He won close $125,000.00 for the day c ause he did hit a few breakeven or small losses and 1 disaterous shoe where I believe he won only 2 hands . never counts and also asks for BS advice and then sometiomes does not follow it and wins anyhow . That is pure dumb luck .They also barred him from playing the rest of the trip soo he hit the $25.00 slots and picked up a tidy $72,000.00 - so go figure that one out . funny as hell and luck and a hot shoe can make you and then you get lousty shoes and you can not win no matter what you do Count perfectly and perfect BS and the dealer just gets unbelievable cards . That happened tu us last week - 4 different tables and sat through some horrendous cards and saw all double downs go up in flames and the dealer maybe busted 10% of the time if that and the rest he had naturals or making stiff hands like water hitting 12's through 16's and making the winner . This was not just one table but 4 different tables as I said !!!!!!
