It’s a little unsettling to realize that members of Congress and other elected officials live in a freakish cult mindset where they believe demons can cause just about every problem known to mankind, and follow pastors who teach that economic collapse is because the emperor of Japan allegedly had sex with what they categorize as a succubus.
Jack Hayford, who ministers to John Ensign, introduces Peter C. Wagner in this video, and Wagner explains the 1993 troubles in the Japanese economy:
So, there is a spirit called a "harlot", a principality who dominates nations, who dominates territories, who dominates people groups, very very clearly – to such an extent that she has fornication with kings. And I can give you an example of how she does this. Japan, as a nation, is one of the nations of the world which has consciously, openly invited national demonization…Since the night that the present emperor slept with the sun Goddess, the stock market in Japan has gone down – never come up since. This has been a disastrous year – first year the rice harvest failed, first year Japan has ever had to import rice
Wow! So could possibly America’s economic collapse be due to Republican family values politicians having sex with real people? Those pesky demons!
I’m all for religious freedom, but sadly these nutjobs aren’t. Followers of Jack Hayford and Peter C.Wagner–guys like John Ensign and his fellowshipping frat bros at C Street, along with Sarah Palin–are wrapped up in a lot of theocratic nonsense (in part developed by Ted Haggard, who might not be the best guide, unless you’re looking for meth and "massages") which
effectively demonizes everyone on Earth who does not subscribe to Haggard’s and Hayford’s form of evangelical Christianity.
Once again, I am going to invoke the First Amendment, which gives me the right to have my zany religious views, you to have whatever you like or none at all, and these paranoids who think statues of owls and frogs invite demons into their houses to keep that faith. But maybe noton the tax payer’s dime.
Seriously, these people are crazy.
