Why settle for just one?
Preacher Todd Bentley may think he has a cure for what ails you–and it’s a swift kick in the face.
The tattooed leader of Fresh Fire Ministries, based in Lakeland, Florida, plans on touring the UK this month, the Daily Mail reports. Several citizens, however, are begging officials to ban Bentley from the country, citing the preacher’s violent healing tactics as potentially harmful.
In one interview, Bentley claims that the “Holy Spirit” told him to kick an ill elderly woman in the face with his biker boot.
“Just as my boot made contact with her nose,” the 36-year old said, “she fell under the power of God.”
John 11, 41:
Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead man was lying. And Jesus lifted up His eyes and said, “Seconds out! Round one!.” Now when He had said these things, He cried with a loud voice, “Take that! And that! And that!” And he who had died came out bound hand and foot with graveclothes, bruised and staggering, and his face was wrapped with a cloth, for his nose was bleeding. Jesus said to them, “I am the greatest, for I float like a butterfly and sting like a bee!”
Now the ACLU is fighting a public school, Delhi Charter School in Louisiana, that is doing just that. The school has a formal policy banning pregnant students from attending the school, and they reserve the right to forcibly pregnancy-test any student. Here’s the policy, in the school’s own words:
If an administrator or teacher suspects a student is pregnant, a parent conference will be held. The school reserves the right to require any female student to take a pregnancy test to confirm whether or not the suspected student is in fact pregnant. The school further reserves the right to refer the suspected student to a physician of its choice. If the test indicates that the student is pregnant, the student will not be permitted to attend classes on the campus of Delhi Charter School.
“Are you pregnant, Louise?”
“Oh, no, sir, just grossly overweight.”
Who could possibly object to that?
Portrait of a cereal offender
The gay marriage opponent seen in a viral video accidentally setting a fire outside the General Mills headquarters is a Minnesota real estate broker who has previously recorded a series of anti-gay YouTube clips…
Leisner announces that he is there to protest the company’s advocacy of gay marriage, a reference to the food conglomerate’s June announcement that it opposes a November ballot initiative banning such nuptials. “So we are going to torch some cereal,” Leisner says, as cars can be heard zooming past on nearby Interstate 394.
But after Leisner torches the Cheerios box, he somehow allows flames to spread to the lawn in front of a giant General Mills sign. After trying–and failing–to stamp out the flames with his feet, Leisner tells two young companions, “Okay, get out of here guys.”
