HARVEY SPENCER LEWIS (1883-1939)
Founder of the "Ancient Mystical Order Of The Rosy Cross", or AMORC. Lewis claims to have the secrets of Christian Rosenkrutz...a man who never really existed. He worked in advertising as an illustrator which helped him to promote the AMORC, throughprint ads and booklets.
The order sells about 3 dozen books with catchy titles to sell boring material. Titles such as Mental Poisoning, The Secret Life of Jesus, and Mastery of the Cycles of Fate might seem to promise more than they deliver. Rosicrucians are told they can counter act negative Karma, with the law of Ahrma...which sometimes involves making out a check to AMORC.
Lewis founder the AMORC and heavily promoted the super-secret order by advertising in national magazines and newspapers. It has been jokingly said by critics that if the AMORC ever stopped advertising that the print media industry would go belly up! Anyone could learn to be an occultist for just a few dollars each month after answering a very simplequestionnaire.
AMORC claims not to be a religion, although Lewis tried to start a Rosicrucian Church at one point, and also operated a Rosicrucian radio station in Florida to promote it. While Rosicrucians may claim to be Christian, AMORC says it goes back to an Egyptian mystery school started by Pharo Amenhotep (it actually doesn't, however). Rosicrucians set up Neopagan altars (it would be hard to call them "Christian") in their homes with busts of Nephertiti and Amenhotep on them...obviously meant to be Pagan demi-gods. There's little of AMORC that has to do with Christian mysticism.
While Lewis may have claimed to have been a "Christian Mystic", he was in fact a disciple of Aleister Crowley, the flophouse Anti-Christ! The truth came out during a lawsuit in which a rival Rosicrucian named Swinburne Clymer sued Lewis. According to Clymer, Lewis was initiated in a ritual that was supposed to have lasted 3 days behind closed doors (and could have even involved homosexual "sex magic", since Crowley was involved), but Lewis's ritual only lasted one day.
...
Upon hearing of Lewis's success, Crowley wrote Lewis to proclaim himself head of the AMORC.
...
Lewis refused, since his money making order was doing just fine without him, and he knew the negative reputation Crowley had deliberately cultivated would change all that. Crowley thought of going to America again, to seize the order from Lewis, but the by that time Crowley was in his flophouse years, and since he never had magic powers to begin with, couldn't actually cast a spell for traveling money.
In 1916, Lewis held a press conference and supposedly demonstrated he could change zinc into gold, or so he claimed at least.
