ABSTRACT
Doctor Kilari Anand Paul, the Indian-born Christian evangelical and founder of the United States-based Global Peace Initiative (GPI), is explaining how he convinced Guy Philippe, the leader of Haiti's rebel forces, to turn over a new leaf. It is an unbelievable story, growing progressively more unbelievable as the diminutive, almost wispy Paul details his scolding of the thuggish Philippe. Over the past two decades leading up to 2004, Paul, a self-described "Hindu-born follower of Jesus," has cultivated a peculiar specialty as spiritual adviser to the scum of the earth. Despite such high-profile interventions, Paul remains virtually unknown in the United States. The public face of religion in the United States, Paul and his supporters have found, looks nothing like that of a peculiar, self-promoting Indian minister. Blending tenets of Christianity with elements of social reform--including relentless criticism of government corruption, the dowry system, the caste system, and religious fanaticism in general--Paul's message earned him national attention. While speaking in Los Angeles, California, Paul became acquainted with the late Reverend E.V. Hill, who spiritually counseled Presidents Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, and George H. W. Bush. Through Hill, Paul met Nelson Bunker Hunt, who is perhaps best known for attempting to corner the silver market in 1980.
