    I’m not impressed. You can get the same nonsense from a dead type generator such as http://www.lipsum.com/

    “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Sed vestibulum dignissim tempor. Aenean tellus lacus, laoreet sed condimentum eget, aliquet.”

    The Bible in I Corinthians clearly says that the spiritual gift of speaking in tongues must always be accompanied by someone who has the gift of interpreting what is said. So if Pastor Jay did not have an interpreter present, he went against the clear teachings of the Bible!

    I’m shocked, shocked to see this kind of blatant disregard for Biblical standards!

    Awesome! When will the MSS start showing this tape? Nothing says Middle American Values™ like some lunatic frothing at the mouth like a character out of a WIlliam Peter Blatty novel…

    Yesterday they were HORRIFIED that peaceful gay protestors turned up to protest their hatefest – oh noes – and now THIS?

    Are you fucking kidding me? Will the snake handlers arrive tomorrow?

    Point. Laugh. NOM suck. Not in a good way.

  5. John B. says

    I really, REALLY hope Pastor Ooh Ka Da Ba Hakha Do Shata Baha, Lohhhh-rio Goboba Sonama Hakataya Masah shows up when NOM comes to Wisconsin.

    Jesus might put a few choice words in my mouth for him, too.

    I seriously can’t believe that there are people in the 21st century who believe that stringing random phonemes together somehow constitutes religious revelation. God bless America — ?!?

    It’s funny to think that with a minor shift in history, these bigots could have very well been standing on the steps of political buildings DEMANDING that if gays want to live as couples, they should HAVE to get married legally and live in monogamous, committed relationships.

    :)

  7. Philo says

    Speaking of fantasy, it is appropriate, somehow, that the Mormon slot on NOM’s board of directors is held by a famous science fiction and fantasy writer (Orson Scott Card).

    The good news is that with a national healthcare program this poor, delusional and unwell man will be able to see a psychiatrist, receive treatment, put an end to his hallucinations and lead a normal (well, relatively normal) life and fully partake in society.

    Unfortunately, this is the sort of thing that goes on every Sunday (at least) in the Pentacostal churches, and it is hardly always directed against gay rights.

    I view it as deliberate fraud or a failure of the nervous system.

    Ether way, I want to stay far away from this nonsense.

    But then I am an Episcopalian, and that denomination has rarely let its religion get the better of common sense.

  10. Matt26 says

    Why these people always attack two things – gay marriages and abortion? Why not divorces etc. because they are also denied in the Bible (OT)? Hypocrisy stands very strongly with these “religious” groups. Take one thing forget another.
    These entire charismatic movement in US seems so differ from what I used to see. I don’t know how to react to it.

  11. Jay says

    Biblical scholars (with their feet grounded in logic and history) know that “tongues” were “languages” (foreign)–not gibberish. What a nutcase… This is why you can’t take the Right seriously–it has people like this at its core.

  12. TANK says

    This is basically how all supernaturalist faith looks to me…admittedly, it’s pretty funny.

    “Shambalalaloolalalalala” “What’s he sayin’?” “he’s sayin’ we’re all getting ice cream afterward”. I bet they’d crine at the thought that they’re anything like certain…other faiths…

  13. TANK says

    “Biblical scholars (with their feet grounded in logic and history)”

    Yeah…logic…and history…they study mythology.

    “know that “tongues” were “languages” (foreign)–not gibberish.”

    Or maybe not. Maybe this is what it is, huh? That whole true “christian” is coming out…when all you have is your faith.

    “What a nutcase… This is why you can’t take the Right seriously–it has people like this at its core.”

    So if they just wouldn’t speak in tongues….LOL!

  14. NoCaDrummer says

    I’m reminded of the gibberish that is spoken in the background to these lyrics:

    “I could feel hot flames of fire roaring at my back
    As she disappeared, but soon she returned
    In her hand was a bottle of wine, in the other, a glass
    She poured some of the wine from the bottle into the glass
    And raised it to her lips
    And just before she drank it, she said…”

  15. jamal49 says

    @peterparker Vudun is a spiritual tradition that combines elements of African spirituality with some Catholic elements. It is a legitimate faith tradition that does not rely on such fraudulent “speaking in tongues” as shown in this video. Vudun is not primitive or “black magic” or “evil” or any other stereotype one wishes to imagine.

  16. TANK says

    yeah, but it’s 100% bullshit, jamal. Just because it’s all cultural and shit…”esoteric” and “obscure”…doesn’t mean it’s not bullshit. “Don’t criticize my faith! but your faith of speaking in tongues is fraudulent!”

  17. Jay says

    Tank, what the hell are you talking about? There are non-Christian, atheist Biblical scholars. Several of my religious studies professors were atheist or agnostic. Similarly, none of my classics professors worshipped the ancient Greek and Roman gods.

    You’re quick to comment, but slow to contribute anything of substance.

    P.S. I’m not a Christian.

  18. TANK says

    “Tank, what the hell are you talking about?”

    Coloring.

    “There are non-Christian, atheist Biblical scholars.”

    And there are people who know more about magic the gathering and dungeons and dragons…who REALLY study it….and the only reason that they’re not called scholars is because people don’t that dungeons and dragons and magic the gathering are real….isn’t that right? I can’t imagine studying mythology…it sounds really silly…though, I’ve heard far sillier things.

    “Several of my religious studies professors were atheist or agnostic. Similarly, none of my classics professors worshipped the ancient Greek and Roman gods.”

    Classics isn’t “religious studies”…classics professors…though useless…at least are educated.

    “You’re quick to comment, but slow to contribute anything of substance.

    P.S. I’m not a Christian.”

    Ya know, I really don’t recall giving you permission to have an opinion, let alone express it.

  19. Jay says

    I have a hard time following what you’re saying because you’re ignorant. I think you’re trying to be clever and funny, but it’s falling flat because, well, I think you used ‘don’t’ in place of a verb or left out the verb that was to follow it.

    I’m guessing you’re not that educated.

    Anyway, everyone is entitled to his opinion, but not everyone’s opinion is entitled to be taken seriously. Only informed opinions should be given any consideration. As such (and as usual), we can’t take what you have to say very seriously.

  20. TANK says

    Yes, jay…guessing. No, I am never funny for others, or even try to be. I amuse myself with people like you…because occasionally, it’s funny…for me.

    Now you don’t understand what I wrote? Hmmm, because I left ‘believe’? Is that it? You aren’t a very good cryptologist, are you? Or, I can only assume, not very good at anything…

    Anyway, the point remains. Their “interpretation” of talking in tongues is just as viable as this interpretation of that meaning, given that there’s no “one true interpretation,” regarldess of what you believe. Natural language is plastic, you see.

  21. Skooter McGoo says

    Where is his snake he’s supposed to be talking to, sounds like parsel tongue from Lord Voldemort himself. I love Harry Potter because Daniel Radcliffe speaks in favor of Equality for everyone.

  22. Timothy says

    It’s “I BIND the spirits of darkness, I take authority over the principalities AND powers of Hell” not “BEHIND the spirits of darkness, I take authority over the principalitie OF powers of Hell”.

    I know that it can be hard to understand, but I was raised Pentecostal and those are standard phrases.

  23. Kyle says

    TANK, you are a vile, friendless, humorless, virtually retarded human being who is a pitiful excuse at that.

    Your problem is, you think you are better than everyone, and in reality, you are a complete and utter BORE. Suffering from a superiority complex is SO common, when in fact being common is SO sad and trivial.
    Life must be a challenge for someone like you. I pity you. You ARE to be pitied.

  24. TANK says

    Well, no, not everyone, kyle. But so what? So let’s dance!

    Seriously, wasn’t max cady a pentecostal, too? Ultimate summertime flick–top five, at least (the scorsese remake of cape fear, and the original)

  25. Kyle says

    Well Tank, I overreacted. I was pissed at how cocky you were in the previous posts. Call it a truce? Of course you’re not virtually retarded, that’s just stupid. I’m sorry.

  26. TANK says

    Um…sure. You seem pretty young, so here’s something. This is the internetz where everyone is nobody, and nobody has a keyboard for typing opinions…it’s not worth taking seriously, for the most part. So, sorry about the distress.

  27. RickG says

    What a disgrace.. and sort of funny. I was part of a pentacostal church for several years. They never permitted any gibberish without “interpretation” which is what the Bible teaches. Clearly a show here. The guy next to the “charlatan tongue speaker” should have backed him up and translated. Instead, the frenzy of the moment, triggered his gibberish as well. I laugh at these episodes. But, its a shame that “bible preaching” people have sunk this low. Now wonder church attendance is waning… only the ignorant will back this guy up. They need to “get back to the bible.” Oh geez…..

  28. maila says

    I know this man and I’ve attended his services. I’ve been to many churches and I can say with certainty, his congregation worships god with all sincerity. No mealy mouthed, half-hearted christians who don’t have the guts to say homosexuality is a sin, as taught in the bible. And his gift of tongues is not misused, there are tongues interpretations frequently. If gays have the right to speak out their so called ‘right to marry’, then certainly Christians have the right to voice their views on the matter, in whichever way they choose. People forget this country allows EVERYONE the freedom of speech , not just radicals lefts who want to start a revolution every hour.

    “Why these people always attack two things – gay marriages and abortion? Why not divorces etc. because they are also denied in the Bible (OT)? Hypocrisy stands very strongly with these “religious” groups. ”

    I don’t know who you’re refering to, but this pastor and his congregation do not favor divorce. Maybe you should do your research before you make silly assumptions.
