Democratic presidential candidate and New Age author Marianne Williamson is pushing back against the “overly secularized Left” for mocking those praying against hurricane Dorian after having suggested the “power of the mind” can deter the storm.
“The Bahamas, Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas…may all be in our prayers now. Millions of us seeing Dorian turn away from land is not a wacky idea; it is a creative use of the power of the mind. Two minutes of prayer, visualization, meditation for those in the way of the storm,” Williamson said in an tweet Wednesday, which she subsequently deleted.
“May the peace of God be upon them and their hearts be comforted as they endure the storm,” she wrote in another tweet, replacing the previous one.
After being mocked for her remarks on social media, Williamson took to Twitter again Wednesday afternoon to stress that “[p]rayer is a power of the mind, and it is neither bizarre nor unintelligent.”
“People of faith belong in the Democratic Party, and will be necessary to the effort if we’re to win in 2020,” she said.
The mockery of faith and prayer, she added, is harming Democrats as a party.
“I was born and raised in Texas so I’ve seen it. Millions of people today are praying that Dorian turn away from land, and treating those people with mockery or condescension because they believe it could help is part of how the overly secularized Left has lost lots of voters,” she continued.
