Amy Carlson, popularly known as Mother God, was a self-proclaimed spiritual saviour who formed a cult through her online manifestos and live-streaming sessions. Love Has Won: The Cult of Mother God follows her life and death. As Amy’s condition deteriorated, her admirers believed her death would result in her evacuation by UFO and humanity’s deliverance. Love Has Won: The Cult of Mother God, the three-part docuseries highlights the pitfalls of internet proselytising and a conspiracy-driven faith as seen through the eyes of Amy’s adherents and recreated from the cult’s historical material.
The second installment of the documentary series Love Has Won: The Cult of Mother God is on HBO and Max on Monday, November 20 at 9 p.m. ET. Episode 3, the final installment of the docu-series, will air at the same time on Monday, November 27.
In an HBO trailer of “Love Has Won: The Cult of Mother God,” recordings are shown in which Carlson, also known as Lia, claims she is 19 billion years old and formerly lived as Jesus.
When Saguache County Sheriff’s deputies arrived at Carlson’s home near Crestone in southern Colorado in 2021, they learned of his death. They were called to the scene after receiving information from the father of a 2-year-old child that the toddler was being detained at the home.
Carlson’s devotees referred to her as Mother God. Her body was discovered with Christmas lights strung around it. According to the Saguache County coroner, she died as a result of alcoholism, anorexia, and chronic colloidal silver intake.
Following the finding of Carlson’s body, seven of Carlson’s followers were arrested on suspicion of corpse abuse. Those accusations were later dropped against all members of Love Has Won.
Carlson’s cult has previously been featured in an episode of the Dr. Phil Show. It focused on Carlson’s claims to her followers that she could mend people’s brains and perform spiritual surgery. It also described Carlson’s claim that she will ascend to the Fifth Dimension and has been reborn 534 times. She also pretended to be Joan of Arc, Marilyn Monroe, and Cleopatra. Love Has Won’s unorthodox practises supposedly included standing for long periods of time without sitting and sleeping very little.
On the broadcast, members of her cult stated that many of the reports about their organisation were incorrect. Members of Love Has reported Carlson had been ailing for a long period before her death.
Andrew Profaci used to be a member of the band Love Has Won. In an interview he stated that he came into Carlson’s sphere during a period of “awakening.” He met her through an online conversation, and when he arrived in the Crestone region, Carlson told Profaci that he would be Father God to her Mother God. Profaci stated that he left the group because his development was leading him in a new way. He also said that the cult had become abusive in its treatment of its members.
