With 100 million copies sold and three films that have grossed over $1bn, the Twilight sagas have made the author one of the most powerful, and richest, women in publishing.
Meyer’s Mormon beliefs permeate the vampire trilogy with themes of chastity and self-control, making Twilight propaganda for America’s growing abstinence movement.
Other people on the list include Oprah Winfrey, Pope Benedict XVI, Presidents Barack Obama, Felipe Calderon, and Hugo Chavez among others, Bill Gates, James Cameron and Lady Gaga. Very few people from the entertainment industry and writers or artists were on the list that is mostly composed of political figures.
Anyway, do you agree that Twilight is propaganda for America’s abstinence movement?
