The Holy Ghost Hokey Pokey

When I first heard of this, I thought it would go under the heading of “daily hilarity”, but while it is funny in theory, it’s actually sad to watch wounded people—literally physically wounded people—make such utter fools of themselves at the hands of exploitative charlatan “faith healers”:

The video’s poster, more sympathetic to Christianity than I am, puts it this way:

Perhaps the saddest, lowest, most incomprehensible moment in the history of Christianity. It is difficult to understand how any form of Christianity, at any point in the history of humanity, under any circumstance possible, could degrade into this foolishness.

To see any form of content so divorced from the extreme emotionalism is horrifying. It’s the Hokey Pokey, and they treat it like magic.

And the way that dude sings the song… it’s the Hokey Pokey dude. Come on.

And Ed Brayton is right to highlight this line as the goofiest:

“Alzheimer’s is not Biblical.”
