RationalWiki's 2019 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2019.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Dr. Gary L. Greenwald is a weirdo California based pastor who strongly resembles 1970's porn star John Holmes. He also promoted the pointless Satanic Panic movement in the 1980's through a series of fear-mongoring videos. Greenwald has made a career in interpreting occult or satanic symbolism in almost everything ever.

Greenwald's primary crusade was against rock music, which he claimed contained large amounts of demoniacally inspired backward masking[1]. He has also railed against action figures (creating a video in conjunction with Phil Phillips), Saturday morning cartoons, Asian martial arts, yoga and statues and jewelry with a perceived occult influence.

Pastor Greenwald still operates an "Eagle's Nest Ministries" in California where he practices faith healing.[2]

  • Prophets and Prophetic Movements (1990 - book) Self described as "This sequel to Prophets and Personal Prophecy is packed with the same kind of cutting instruction that made the first volume a best-seller. Prophetic insights, how-to's, and warnings make this book essential for the Spirit-filled church." You too can tap insight, knowledge, and wisdom that made Harold Camping so successful.
  • Seductions Exposed: The Spiritual Dynamics of Relationships (2003 - book) Greenwald explains various factors that can lead to abusive relationships, codependent relationships and other romantic problems. Those factors include "...cursing yourself through forbidden statues, jewelry, and practices..."[4]
