I’m late to the party here but you may have seen this video of preacher Cindy Jacobs blaming the recent dead blackbirds on the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell:
It could be because we have said it’s okay for people who commit these kinds of [homosexual] acts to be recognized in our military for the first time in our history, there is a potential that there is something that actually happened in the land where a hundred thousand drum fish died and also where these birds just fell out of the air.
Crazy, right? Makes no sense whatsoever.Thinkerbell agrees, adding:
… let’s not get away from the main point here. This woman’s beliefs, bigoted though they may be, are no more deluded or absurd than the belief held by many that prayers are answered, or that eating the Eucharist is eating Christ’s flesh, or that there is a supreme being who is deeply concerned with the going-ons of the human race.
Very true. Her point is no more logical (or illogical) than all the other things you might hear in a church on any given Sunday.
Side note: Jacobs is somewhere on my big list of Christians who have an absurdly high level of popularity for reasons I just can’t figure out. (Has anyone admitted to agreeing with what she says in the video?) Her, Pat Robertson, Bill Donohue… they all act like they have followers. I’m sure they do because they’re getting viewers and money from somewhere. I also know I live just outside Chicago, but I’m just surprised I don’t know any of them personally.
