Nice Christian Lady Mad At Energy Drinks, Muslims, Saves America
We have an important follow-up to our story about Louie Gohmert and his impassioned stand against a Muslim prayer service at Washington's National Cathedral. As we mentioned in that piece, the actual prayer service on Friday was interrupted by a Christian who was just shocked and horrified that a decent Christian church would play host to a gathering of people who believe in a slightly less-old Abrahamic religion.
Well! Turns out there's a lot more to know about the lady who started shouting her thoughts at the Muslims gathered in the National Cathedral! Her name is Christine Weick, and she was featured in WorldNetDaily over the weekend, so she could share her testimony about being a Persecuted American Christian. Here's WND's dramatic retelling of how one Brave Christian Mom refused to go along with the wimpy apostasy of the gesture at "interfaith" worship:
Christine Weick, a 50-year-old Michigan woman with flowing blonde hair who lives out of her car, rose from the packed National Cathedral, the hall of halls in terms of religious prominence in America, and moved toward the front of the church.
She pointed to the cross hanging overhead.
That cross seemed to be the one thing nobody wanted to look at, she told WND Saturday in an exclusive interview.
The Muslims had set up their prayer rugs in such a way that their backs were turned on the cross, which they consider an alien religious symbol. Jesus was a prophet but was not the son of God and never died on a Roman cross, according to Muslim teaching. Yet, they found themselves staring at a woman who demanded the cross become the center of attention. She then blurted out the message she had traveled all the way from Tennessee to deliver.
“Jesus Christ died on that cross. He is the reason we are to worship only Him. Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior,” she said. “We have built …allowed you your mosques in this country. Why don’t you worship in your mosques and leave our churches alone? We are a country founded on Christian principles.”
She immediately heard voices in the crowd yelling for security.
It's pretty moving! Here's video of Weick's witness for the Lord:
Oh, what a sad cruel world it is, where a decent godfearing Christian is dragged out of a Christian Church simply for calling attention to the Cross, which all those Islamics had turned their backs on (also, Mecca was pointed thataway, not crosswise, but that's no excuse). But it turns out there's a lot more to the one-woman crusade that is Christine Weick! Back in May, she gladdened hearts in Grandville, Michigan, by standing out on the street with this poignant Mother's Day message of love, just as long as love involves Jebus-approved combinations of genitalia:
For her troubles, she got a slushie thrown at her. And more recently, Weick acquired a certain amount of Internet Fame (shelf life: three minutes) for a bizarre video in which she explains that Monster Energy Drinks are secretly Satanic because the claw-marky looking things that make the "M" look kinda like "666" in the Hebrew alphabet, and because the packaging mentions MILFS. Even if you can't manage the full video, you really need to catch her at the 55-second mark, asking in her best Frances-McDormand-in-Fargo voice, "Now, do ya know what a MILF is?" (Well do ya, punk?)
Having recently joined the ministry ourselves, we are frankly inspired to see what just one person can accomplish when driven by unshakeable faith and unencumbered by reason. Also, let's just do away with one very important misconception: while it's true that Christine Weick does not have a fixed address and lives out of her car, that does not mean that she is a homeless person, not at all, as she explained to WND:
“Don’t be sorry for me. I have a very nice SUV. I go out to eat, I have a bank account,” she told WND. “I am just too Dutch to pay 60 or 70 bucks for a hotel every night when I can spend my nights in my car. And I travel every night from place to place, and that is what I was doing when I saw the story in the Drudge Report.”
Wonkette welcomes our new
homeless thrifty overlord. Now, does she know about the encroachment of pagan Sith imagery into the very décor of the National Cathedral, and what is she going to do about it?
