NOTE: That’s not a typo. I didn’t mean to write “don’t put your penis in random things” because we’re about to talk about urethral sounding for a quick second. Some 70-year old Aussie had to go to the hospital to have a FORK removed from his urethra, and it is really gross. Keep on reading at your own risk.
Watch this news clip about a man in Australia claiming to be the second coming of Jesus and all of the people following him. Particularly of note:
This man says he has healed the blind….so why exactly is Jesus wearing glasses? If you can cure the blindness of others, I’m sure a little self-myopia should be no problem.
I love how this Jesus looks like the Western White Jesus we’ve had thrust upon us for centurues.
This Jesus says before he came back to earth, he had conversations with some other famous folks in the afterlife. Including Gandhi. So I guess this means Gandhi is in heaven. Which means you don’t have to be a Christian to go to Heaven! Just be a really good person. Let me go tell my momma real quick that I will indeed be at the pearly gates with her. She will be SO excited. She might put me back in the will and everything.
This is a mess.
I was prepared to watch this with my usual level of arrogance and disdain for all things Crazy Christian. Somewhere along the line, I started seeing these people as individuals and not as an abstract monolith representing something I find insane and distasteful. I’m just curious as to what these followers’ lives are like. What is so lacking in your life that would make you willingly follow a con-artist who has set out to take money from the pious and guillable? All of these sad little people really believe this crackpot is Jesus reincarnated. That is so wild to me.
I have to urge to go pray for them. But, ya know….
