The founder of two chains of natural foods grocery stores has resigned after he was arrested in a child prostitution sting in Phoenix.The people who are into this "natural" and "organic" nonsense - and especially those giving money to Whole Foods - will keep on trying to make excuses, but there are no excuses:
Sunflower Farmers Market CEO Michael Gilliland was accused of soliciting sex online with someone who identified herself as an underage girl. He faces a charge of felony child prostitution.
Gilliland resigned from Sunflower, which has locations in seven states. He also founded Wild Oats Markets Inc., which was acquired by Whole Foods Market in 2007.
Whenever we look behind the veil, every aspect of the NewAge "movement" is not just wrong, wrong, wrong, but completely rotten to the core.
And - before anyone hits us for guilt by association - we'll remind you:
It's the NewAgers, themselves, whose mantra is "it's all connected."
