MORE PHONY BALONEY
Catalyst September Issue 2006
Ever since Dan Brown made a splash with the Da Vinci Code, the kooks have been coming out of the woodwork. The latest is Kathleen McGowan. In her novel, The Expected One, she claims to be a descendant of Jesus and Mary Magdalene. In other words, she is from the “sacred bloodline” that Brown made famous.
What proof does she have? None. We are expected to take her word. To do so means we would have to accept as true the vision she had of Mary Magdalene who suddenly appeared to her in 1997.
- McGowan first tried to get her book published as non-fiction, but got no offers. That’s because the publishers knew this was phony baloney all along.
