In 2008 Campbell had criticised the sect, saying, "I knew about Kabbalah before Madonna got involved. Kabbalah is not a religion, it's a program. I don't like to get hooked on things like that. It re minds me of AA, but just with different words. They've got the same principles . . . I just believe in God. I am religious. I pray most days and do my thing. But each to their own."
