CMA and MJD may be lying low right now, but a recent sign of life from chairman and MJD’s enabler-in-chief Christopher Hartnett left me feeling alarmed.
Hartnett has a Reddit account @tedhens he’s occasionally used since 27 November 2020 in attempts to defend CMA, replying to critics in an insulting and disparaging manner. He shields MJD from criticism and defends by attacking, employing small-minded ad hominem arguments. Hartnett’s crude patronizing nature is on display, at odds with a self-proclaimed spiritual ‘senior pastor’. Example:
I’ll take a longer look at his comments another time. And a deeper examination of his username deserves a dedicated post. Today I’m writing about his most recent Reddit post from February 7:
Reading the comments tells me this collection of guns is highpriced, and the post was well-received in the ‘GunPorn’ community.
But why would Hartnett have so many guns? Is he expecting to need them? To supply to others? How far is Hartnett prepared to go to protect his “Supreme Grand Master” John Douglas?
Hartnett’s display of deadly fire power is for him another ego-boost for a self-centered narcissist absent of personal responsibility. Again he sees offense as the best defense.
In another Reddit comment attempting to defend CMA, Hartnett uses his gun interest to belittle his opponent who had happened to post a gun photo in an unrelated subreddit:
Clearly the particular model of gun was not to Hartnett’s standards and he can’t resist using it as a way to win the argument by trash-talking not only the gun but by extension his opponent’s credibilty. Showing again his genuine character contrasts with his CMA persona of a man dedicated to self-development and elevating the world’s spirituality.
How do vitriolic attacks such as this affect one’s karmic balance? I hope Hartnett purchased one of MJD’s Karmic Mitigation Blessings after these fireworks, to stop anything returning to bite him in the future.
It wasn’t news to me Hartnett is a gun fan. Earlier in 2020 he followed in quick succession a large number of firearms Instagram accounts: @glockinc @coltfirearms @henry_rifles @rugersofficial and so on.
He also followed @realdonaldtrump that day. Relevant because in the following YouTube comment Hartnett reveals his politics of gun ownership was tied to voting for Trump:
Elsewhere on YouTube, Hartnett has favorited videos such as:
- Shooting Techniques Part 1 [Stance]
- I Like Guns – Steve Lee
- Kel-Tec KSG 12 Gauge Shotgun
- John Stossel Links Gun Control to Higher Crime Rates
- The Secret to Mastering the Handgun (complete DVD version)
- New 9mm Gatling Gun from Tippmann Armory!
He shared his policy on trespassers in 2012:
So be warned, believers of MJD and members of the “community Church open to all seekers of truth, cosmic awareness and soul-realization”; arrive uninvited to the CMA chapel and you may get shot! Some ‘church’ right?
For Hartnett, the path of spiritual growth is a long and winding road until you get to knock on heaven’s door.
Hartnett’s cratering ambition is creation of a multi-million dollar global movement built around MJD, purportedly for the benefit of mankind’s global spiritual advancement. Akin to how Transcendental Meditation in the 1960s-70s was dependent on Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, revered by Hartnett.
Let’s hope it doesn’t turn into the new Waco instead.
