Pastor: We Successfully Prayed Hurricane Away from Tampa


Reverend Jesten Peters of Keys of Authority Ministries told the Christian Broadcasting Network that her organization successfully prayed Isaac away from Tampa, Right Wing Watch reports.

Said Peters:

"We have had lots and lots of people praying around the clock that it would move, and after you watch from the very beginning where they were saying it was coming and now where they say it is going, then it has really moved out of the way for us and we appreciate God doing that and moving it for us!"

  2. God depicted as a lap dog that does exactly what his fllowers want, when they want it.

    If this isn't blasphemy, i don't know what is.

  3. One more example of religious people picking which bible verses they choose to follow.

    It's hypocritical for Ms. Peters to be a Reverend when the bible is clear on a woman's place in the church:

    1 Timothy 2:11-12 "Let a woman learn quietly with all submissiveness. I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man; rather, she is to remain quiet."

    1 Corinthians 14:33-35 "For God is not a God of confusion but of peace. As in all the churches of the saints, the women should keep silent in the churches. For they are not permitted to speak, but should be in submission, as the Law also says. If there is anything they desire to learn, let them ask their husbands at home. For it is shameful for a woman to speak in church."

    Yet some religious people would characterize a few bible verses as anti-gay and use them as a basis to deny our civil rights.

    It's infuriating.

  4. Ridiculous. She is an idiot.

    I certainly wouldn't want to be in Tampa over the next few days...and not because of the weather. Can you imagine being surrounded by these loud-mouthed bigots.

    To top it off, tomorrow GOProud (shiver) is hosting Homocon 2012, the 'hottest event at the 2012 RNC convention'. They, as an organization, are not even welcome at the RNC.

    Sounds like a lot of fun....BARF!

  5. The height of arrogance is believing that a higher being who resides in a supernatural realm is at one's beck and call, regardless of the injury, death and devastation that one's demands upon said higher being will bring upon others.

  6. Yes, "Pastor." Screw everybody else, just send the hurricane away from the RNC. How profoundly ignorant can people be?

  7. So why didn't they think of praying it to dissipate instead of hitting some other poor souls? Because they're Republicans first, religious second (or third, or ...).

  8. I looked quickly at her picture before seeing what the article was about and thought it was Leona Helmsley.

  9. So, if she prayed Isaac away from Florida, does that mean she prayed it toward New Orleans, about the last place on earth that needs a hurricane? Couldn't she have simply prayed for God to make it dissipate?

  10. Who cares that a bunch of poor people in Issac's path are going to lose their homes and lives, as long as privileged white people get to sit around and jack each other off? Priorities, people!

  11. That's nothing, I prayed the sun up this morning and it's a lot bigger than a little hurricane.

  12. WHAT?? These people altered the course of a Hurricane?? BURN THE WITCHES !!!!! BURN THEM NOW !!!!!

  13. Can we get her to pray away the economic downturn in the economy, and cancer, and yeast infections?

  14. is that a drag queen? o_O

  15. LOL @Tre. I was about to post the same thing.


    Magical thinking old bat needs to go back and read her Bible again, particularly the part that basically says women should keep their pie-holes shut about religious and government matters.

    Hey, it's not what *I* believe, but I'm not the one going around yapping about the Bible all the damn time and praising Jesus every time a sparrow farts.

  16. This is not exactly news...

    CBN’s Pat Robertson in 1985 said that his prayer moved Hurricane Gloria away from Virginia Beach, were CBN is based, and towards New York.

  17. @Diogenes Arktos: so, are you saying they have had the power of prayer all this time and have only used it on hurricanes? Why didn't they use this power to help out New Orleans during Katrina and move it away from them and save them from devastation? Why haven't they expanded this power and use it to cure disease, stop wars, bring world peace? Hmm, I guess it only works on the weather. Who knew?


    Posted by: WHAT? | Aug 27, 2012 4:59:51 PM

  18. I hope that the good people of New Orleans get started right away on praying real hard to push the hurricane back to Tampa.

  19. That's great; we are OK, phuck everyone else.

    That's some god you got, Mrs.

  20. Kevin, she does look like a drag queen - Delta Werk.

    Posted by: trees | Aug 27, 2012 5:35:02 PM

  21. Ok so she is serious. Now if this is indeed the actuality of it all and the path changed because of her and she has stated as such. If I lived where the hurricane veered off to and my property was damaged I would sue this woman for intentional criminal damage. Not only real property but emotional compensation would be sought.

  22. @What?: Of course they wouldn't pray it away from New Orleans - it was God's righteous indignation at the LGBT community. (I wonder if they prayed it would linger?) I'm not so sure it even works on the weather;-)

    Posted by: Diogenes Arktos | Aug 27, 2012 5:38:30 PM

  23. actually didn't the bible say things like women should not be teacher remain silent and be obedient to men? I guess another one who picks and choses which parts of the bible to obey?

    Posted by: walter | Aug 27, 2012 6:33:33 PM

  24. Delusional.

    Posted by: Chicklets | Aug 27, 2012 8:09:19 PM

  25. Most of the time they used the Christian/Catholic vigilantes to run things out of town down south with the help of the "Army of God" local police who network with the vigilantes most people in America know them as the KKK.
