Let the bodies hit the floor...



I wish it were edited a little better, but this is hysterical!

I think I'm going to stop posting anything original and just steal shit from the cool kids over at Gorilla Mask. Kind of like they do. It's what their site is all about. Fun stuff from all over the web.

I wonder if anyone who reads this has had any kind of experience with faith healers before. My father's good friend was an uber-Catholic who turned Evangelical when he moved down to South Carolina. He was diagnosed with a serious heart condition that he claims was cured by a faith healer. Hey...whatever floats yer boat, I always say. Especially if you believe it saved your life.

And it's not faith healing, but my aunt and uncle claim to have seen some pretty miraculous shit in Medjugorje in Bosnia-Herzegovina. Something about a silver crucifix transforming to gold or the like. I dunno. They are pretty grounded people too. So who is to say.

I'd settle on seeing someone perform the miracle of lowering gasoline prices. That would work for me.

Hilarious. Those wacky, wacky christians... I remember watching something where Benny was saying "I got the fire in me. Ya want the fire in ya?" and these old birds all saying "Oh yeah, I want the fire in me..." Funny how all these people look orgasmic no? Painfully so, but getting off nonetheless.

AK - I've never seen this Benny Hinn character before. He's special!

what about the miracle of you showing up at my house one time with what amounted to "german vampire porn"... that was nearly a miracle, in my book....

B.E. Earl said...

Slyde - your memory of that incident is a bit hazy. We BOTH picked that german vampire porn movie out together. Silly little bitch.

I've seen a lot of this kind of thing in person but I've never seen Benny Hinn before. I have heard of him, though.

It's amazing to see the power of suggestion at work.

This clip depicts the worst kind of con artist charlatan, the kind who prey on gullible people's fears. Medjugorje is another thing altogether, more like Assisi, a place of prayer and meditation.

ajooja - I've never heard of this dude before. But he knocks people down real cool.

MikeB - My aunt and uncle loved Mdjugorje. I wasn't really comparing one with the other.

You gotta give him stamina though, that's some big bastards he keeps heaving over.

Doesn't this constitute assault?

*gets all lawyerish*

On our fishing trip one of our guides was a missionary. He claimed that he had healed a woman badly suffering from skin cancer right before his eyes....hmm. I still find myself with doubt about such huge miracles.

B.E. Earl said...

WR - sure looks like it constitutes fraud. ;)

Melsie - Hmmm...there should be a way to prove faith with science. What? That's not what faith is all about? Hmmm.
