I think you are missing the point, and The Daily Fail offers the relevant info: It's basically showbiz, and having three reasonably attractive young women performing and selling the crosses, the sessions and related stuff with the dad hovering in the background seems to work. Otherwise they'd be unable to tour the globe.

So basically what you're saying here, is that it doesn't matter how stupid and retarded their nonsense is, people will simply ignore this and keep gawping at the tits.

I'd like to think that at least some of my fellow human beings have grown up beyond this point. In my case, it wouldn't matter if you arranged for Anne Hathaway, Scarlett Johanssen and Emmy Rossum to dance naked around me whilst the propaganda was being peddled, it still wouldn't make me become a creationist. As for this mediaeval fuckwittery about fucking "demons", oh please, I'd rather let venomous spiders play in my underpants than sign up to shit that retarded.

Eh, no, that's not what I mean. I think they have simply come up with a business model that works. It's no coincidence that, of all possible "adversaries", they picked Harry Potter. It means maximum attention in their chosen field. And I'm inclined to suspect that people like those four con-artists don't actually believe in "mediaeval fuckwittery", they use it to milk the terminally benighted.
What makes you think that I was suggesting the ladies you mention could turn you into a supernaturalist? At no point did I imply that. And why would I suggest you might "sign up to shit that retarded? You are not in the target group, obviously.
