Maybe you know about the trial happening right now for James Arthur Ray. He is on trial for 3 counts of manslaughter. Three people who believed in James Ray paid for it with their lives, and now it is time for the courts to decide if Ray is guilty.
I personally think James Arthur Ray is a cold-hearted manipulative monster, who actually led four people to die through his ignorance, greed and vanity…not just these three innocent victims (I will not forget what I see as his center role in the death of Colleen Conaway). I hope that justice is for once, swift, and this bastard pays with a life spent behind bars. It won’t even the score by any means – 4 good people will still be missing, and he won’t be – but I hope it does offer the families of his victims some form of relief, watching this beast get locked in the cage he deserves.
The trial started on March 1st, and is being offered in live video feeds and news streams. I was going to write something about it, but I am not as well informed as many people are on this matter – so I want you to go to them to learn more about it. My own thoughts on it are simple: guilty – lock him away forever. But there is of course, much more to it.

On the Salty Droid’s blog, Ray has been a topic of discussion since this whole thing started. Not only is the fake robot himself perpetually in a full-on attack to the monster known as “Death Ray,” but there are many very intelligent folks that have chimed-in along the way with additional background and evidence, as well as ongoing support for the victims’ families. These folks are now commenting on the trial and offering insight and links to help shed more light on it all. The comment thread is already over 650 strong, and it will continue growing as the trial continues.
The ‘droid has really created a great resource here for James Arthur Ray trial updates. Expect potty talk and lots of stirred-up passions. There are audio and video clips, he is doing day-by-day summary updates, and like I mentioned – the comments have some really interesting stuff too – some of those offering opinions are really super-sharp folks.
I applaud ‘droid for his work here, and in hammering on other assholes that take advantage of innocent believers. We need more fake robots, willing to take a stand. In the meantime, go catch-up on the JAR trial.
And I am sincerely looking forward to you rotting in Hell, James Arthur Ray. Can’t wait to watch you pay for what you’ve done.
Your words are breeding hate and that is just as bad as what you are claiming in James Ray. Hate the sin and love the sinner my friend. God doesnt listen to you otherwise.
I prefer to hate that bastard, thanks. And in no way is it the same as what Ray did – my hate is not going to be used intentionally to manipulate someone for financial gain, and then lead to someone’s death. Nope – these things are not even in the same hemisphere of reasonable comparisons.
I think my words are expressing outrage, anger and yeah – hate – but in no way do I see it as misplaced. Death Ray is someone deserving of all of those feelings, and so much more.
I respect your beliefs, though I disagree here.
Tell you what – you take the better road, and I’ll stick to what feels right to me. You can pray for his soul and love him all you like, and I will hate him, and pray for what I’d like to see happen to him…think Dahmer, and the mop.
Everybody wins – that is, except the victims of this monster, and their survivors. Balance that a little bit for me, and maybe my hate will dissipate.
Of course you can love those to whom it comes easily, but it takes a great deal of character development and humility to tolerate those who are hostile. James Ray has a good side to his character too because we all have evil and good which means even you. If I should find out your dark side (which you have one as we all do) should I start a website stating what it is and how much I hate you????? Or, are you perfect and have always done right in God’s eyes?? I bet not. James needs healing and prayers not hate lest you be just like him.
My darkside has not – nor could it ever – lead to the deaths of four innocent people – in the manner Ray’s did.
I didn’t start a website about this at all – I commented on it in a post that took me about 20 minutes to write, and offered a link to a resource where the conversation is more complete.
So we are clear – I don’t think of me, nor anyone as perfect.
And no amount of my hating James Ray is going to make me anything like him…that’s a mighty mushy broad-stroke you use.
Again Anita – your beliefs are strong – and so are mine. Plenty of room here for us both.
You go right ahead and keep on praying for him (start a blog about forgiving murdering bastards, if you like), and I’ll go on hating him.
Your coverage of this event is biased and offers readers nothing but your emotional vengence of life’s experiences.
Wouldn’t it be more productive to use your talents as a writer and bring truth ONLY to the story.
The truth? You can’t handle the truth! (just a movie quote to lighten the mood).
Of course my coverage is biased, silly – this is my site. You can have one too, and on it, you can say whatever YOUR emotional vengeance stirs to the surface.
I appreciate your suggestion for how I should spend my time more productively. God knows, I wouldn’t want to spend it finding blogs to comment on anonymously.
Hey – maybe I taught you how to spell “vengeance” correctly too…that’s gotta count for something.
For all you James Ray lovers & supporters, and bleeding-heart Guru-Lovers, there’s blood on your hands as well, as enablers. “People who live in glass houses………” or doesn’t your Guru teach that?
I think blind faith often allows or even encourages you to see things that aren’t really there. It’s a shame, because weasels like Death Ray get it…use it…and look where we are.
