Watch: Janet Porter Prays for Christian Control Over the Media

Porter

At Convergence 2010: A Cry to Awaken A Nation, a conference attended by thousands last week, Janet Porter, the President and Founder of Faith2Action called on God to help Christians gain control over the media.

Alvin McEwen writes, in the HuffPost: "...it was attended by such luminaries as Rev. Harry Jackson who was called a 'modern day Martin Luther King, Jr' because of his failed attempt to keep marriage equality from coming to D.C. and Cindy Jacobs who took it upon herself to 'cast out demons' during her speech."

  1. Looks like Janet Folger-Porter needs to pray for control of her appetite.

  2. WTF So in what way is she a nut bag if she is praying to the God of her beliefs. I will ask here does anyone believe in prayer and the power of prayer? I ask cause I do and have seen the affects for others in extraordinary and even miraculous ways. I do agree that Tony and Maggie are ones to pay attention to and need to be responded to.

    As to meddling of religion in society the reality is that it has and will always be here and something we all have to address. We can mock it but it will not go away. So how do we respond to any religion that we may not agree with.

  3. This woman and many 'christians' like her make a mockery of their own religion, so we hardly need to do it for them anymore.

    Oh the irony in that reference... Dr. King would very likely have been standing WITH gays FOR marriage equality. His wife most definitely would have.

  5. Amazing. With her eyes shut the whole time! Doesn't trip or stumble into the lectern once! Yessiree! God was watching out for that woman!

    Um, maybe she needs to check the Book of Matthew 6:5-6, which is pretty explicit about this kind of sanctimonious, public ranting in the "name" of Jesus or God the Father-Mother.

    Let's see. No media influence? Well, there's Faux News. Trinity. 700 Club. Just Google "Christian TV Networks" and see what comes up. I'd say they've got quite a bit of influence. Anytime a Sunday morning news show has a "journalist" from CBN News offering "expert" analysis and opinion, you know these evangies have come a long way.

  7. i certainly hope Rachel sees this and puts it on her show;

    wait! Rachel was probably one of this woman thinks probably needs the most prayer! Andy, ya gotta make sure Rachel sees this;

    @Clay - 'The Handmaid's Tale' still scares the sh*t out of me!

  8. What a nutbag! Hillarious that she's talking about "sound bites" and condeming them as the piano plays dramatically in the background!

  9. "WTF So in what way is she a nut bag if she is praying to the God of her beliefs."

    NWJeff, you honestly don't find her overwrought public prayer schtick asking God to take over the media ridiculous and funny? Guess not. I will fight to keep religious zealots from intruding on my civil rights and will seriously debate anyone on the relationship between religion and gay rights, but she is pure parody.
