God Versus Gay Marriage - and Cheapskates!

Remember Cindy Jacobs? She's the self-proclaimed prophet who back in January claimed that the power of God had granted her quality footwear. Now she's back, with a more sinister and self-serving claim - that God will punish those who support same-sex marriage with natural disasters, along with those who can't afford to give her money.

“Recently in the United States we’ve had these Supreme Court decisions that are against biblical marriage,” Jacobs said. “and the Lord said to me, ‘duck your head, duck your head.’ I said, ‘Oh God, duck my head?’”

The Holy Father, she said, will “mark” believers — as long as they are giving at least 10 percent of their income to the church — and save them from a series of natural disasters that Jacobs described as “a whole lotta shakin’ getting ready to happen.”

“We have displeased the Lord and the earth is going to answer,” she insisted, intimating that God is going to punish the U.S. in the form of natural disasters.

I love that little totally non-Biblical but completely money-grubbing comment about how to be saved from these disasters you have to be giving ten percent of your income to the church. Presumably, that means her church, on the grounds that anyone taking her seriously is probably a follower. Because when you read the words of Jesus, the central takeaway is that the Lord will spare only those who can afford it. Oh, wait...

Jacobs claims that she predicted natural disasters before Hurricane Sandy hit, but that's the nice thing about natural disasters - there's always going to be another one at some point in the future. Jacobs stresses in the article that she doesn't want these natural disasters to come, God is just angry and that's the way it is. Apparently all she does want is those sweet, sweet donations. You know, so she can afford more of those holy shoes.

Why do we continue to give people with mental disorders power over others and call them religious leaders?!

Because people have a hard time distinguishing between those who hear the voice of God and those who just hear voices?

It's never made much sense to me either.
