Mary Kay sales director Jaci Baccus went to church last week and heard something she didn’t like. She heard the truth from her pastor: That MLMs (like Mary Kay) are abusive scams.
As a result, Jaci felt ashamed of what she does for a living (being a MK sales director). Instead of looking critically at Mary Kay and asking herself what her pastor knows that she may not, she chose to be upset and hurt. She couldn’t admit the truth to herself: that almost no one that she recruits ever turns a profit, and she makes money because of inventory orders and not because of product sales.
And Jaci took everything one step further: She says she found Jesus because of Mary Kay. Honey, if Mary Kay is your idea of Jesus, you’re misguided in a big way.
Mary Kay is evil. It is a cult. It is abusive. But those involved tell themselves to ignore that truth and instead pretend that they are doing something godly and something good. How sick!
