Actually it's deceptively easy. Just take a few esoteric and/or spiritually-sounding words, mash them together observing a few rules of syntax "of", "for", and "the" and you're in business. Literally, in business; in the case of WL and crew, a long and successful business.

What strikes me at this point is that 500 years later we've come full circle, as it were: a human organization claims that it alone mediates between fallen and seeking humanity and its Creator and Redeemer God. And instead of Johann Tetzel saying "When the coin in the offering box rings, a soul to heaven springs" we have the merchandising of stilted catch-phrases from the Blendeds Wee.

Just buy the brightly colored rainbow booklet, chant or sing or recite or pray or shout aloud the special words from God's Special Messenger, and you're enroute to empyrean realms. And all for just a dollar.
