|Some dare call it|
Texe Marrs is an American author and conspiracy theorist. His books Dark Secrets of the New Age and Mystery Mark of the New Age were both #1 bestsellers on the Christian book market in 1987-88. Marrs was also a major promoter of Satanic Panic and a scare within American evangelical Christendom over the New Age movement. He has disseminated his idiocy through newsletters and ministries under several names, including "Living Truth Ministries", Flashpoint, and currently Power of Prophecy (his shortwave radio program), and "Bible Home Church".
 The New Age conspiracy
Marrs claimed the New Age movement was intended to set up the Antichrist's world religion based on combining all world religions except evangelical Christianity into one. He somehow linked just about every other evangelical scare-issue to the New Age movement: abortion was the form human sacrifices to Satan would take in the New Age; the ecumenical movement of mainline-to-liberal Christian denominations was part of the New Age movement pushing for a world government; Universal Product Codes were the mark of the beast; etc. Before he started churning out Christian books on the New Age, he was churning out bad hack books for the "career preparation" market, on how to have careers in robotics, high tech, computers, and aerospace. Oh, and a book called The Perfect Name For Your Pet.
Marrs' writings on the New Age borrowed heavily from an earlier 1983 book by Constance Cumbey, The Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow, which started most of the evangelical scare over the New Age. Cumbey and Marrs posited a conspiracy theory basing the leadership of the New Age movement around, largely, those following the teachings of "prophet" Benjamin Creme and esotericist writer Alice Bailey who were awaiting the coming of a new "messiah" named Maitreya which Cumbey and Marrs considered a likely candidate for the "Antichrist". Cumbey has accused Marrs of wholesale plagiarism from her book, and humbly requests that nobody imply any association between her and Texe Marrs. Fair enough, no association implied; we don't blame her for not wanting to be associated with Texe Marrs.
 Marrs goes off the deep end
Subsequent Texe Marrs books went so far off the deep end that even the Christian book market decided he was too whacko to continue to promote, although the specific reason they dropped him like a hot potato appears to be that Marrs started including George H.W. Bush and his "thousand points of light" and "New World Order" slogans as part of the New Age conspiracy (a big no-no for the religious right, which exists by and for the Republican Party). He has self-published everything since, where he writes about the Illuminati, UFOs, and shape-shifting lizard-people, promotes King James Onlyism, and most recently has veered into overt anti-Semitism. Actually "overt anti-Semitism" is an understatement. What else would you call somebody who writes the introduction to a book called The Synagogue of Satan: The Secret History of Jewish World Domination that features the Star of David on the front cover, and sells that book on his website?
Marrs has incorporated just about every anti-Semitic and anti-Catholic canard into his current iterations of the ultimate conspiracy. He alleges that the Pope is actually not Catholic, but a crypto-Jew/Muslim/Hindu... or something, implementing the new one world religion. So in short, Satan and/or the antichrist. You can find plenty of articles on the international Jewish conspiracy's greatest hits on his site — the Federal Reserve, the Rothschild family, etc. You can also order your very own copy of The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion from the site's bookstore.
Marrs has even jumped into the cesspit of Holocaust denial. On his ministry's website, he sells his own recordings with such titles as The Holocaust Controversy and the Falsification of History and Holocaust Dogma Unmasked—A Grim Global Conspiracy Mocking Reality and Capitalizing on Death. He even peddles Holocaust revisionist books, such as The Holocaust Hoax Exposed: Debunking the 20th Century’s Biggest Lie by Victor Thorn, and A Greater "Miracle" Than The Lost Ten Tribes Discovered...—The Dead "Six Million" Uncovered...! by Brian Alois Clèraubat.
