Jacobs: Pray For Lies to Come True

Wingnut extraordinaire Cindy Jacobs has put out a video asking her followers to pray for the destruction of the separation of church and state and for God to give them everything their little authoritarian hearts desire in the new year:

Determine to vote in 2012. If you have not registered, find out if it is still possible for you to do so in your state. If you have registered, plan to vote. Repent of any apathy you have had. Repent of any mindsets where you may have felt your vote didn’t matter. Repent of any religious thinking or “separation of church and state” thinking you may have had that Christians should stay out of the governmental arena. We cannot shift our nation unless we all ACT as well as PRAY!

Ask the Lord to remove the lie of “Separation of Church and State” from this nation’s governmental philosophy and from Believers mindsets! There is no such language in the Constitution. The wording of the Amendment is “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” The intent of the Constitution’s framers was to prevent a state-run religion, such as England’s Anglicanism, headed by the King. In a letter to the Danbury Baptist association in 1802, Thomas Jefferson assured them the Constitution would not ever limit an individual’s free expression of religion, reiterating the Constitution’s intent. Jefferson’s statement was turned around by an activist court in the 1947 case, “Everson vs. Board of Education,” to mean that the framers meant to keep religion out of government. This ruling has become one of the greatest enemies of God in our nation today. War against it today! Use the sword of the Lord, the Word of God, and strike it down in the spirit!

Pray for our Supreme Court. Decree that God will set judges upon the bench of our highest court that will not legislate from the bench, but who will adhere to the Constitution’s original intent. Pray that the Justices will rule morally and in the fear of the Lord. “And I will restore your judges as at the first and your counselors as at the beginning.” Isaiah 1:26a

Begin the day by praising God that the United States will become the “city set on a hill” that was envisioned by our Founders. Ask God to once again place godly elected officials in office who believe as our Founders did in this regard.

Ask God to give favor to pro-life, pro-biblical defense of marriage, pro-fiscal conservative candidates. Pray that pro-biblical value candidates will be voted into office.

She’s also calling herself “Dr.” Cincy Jacobs now because she has honorary degrees from worthless Christian diploma mills.

    So what’s the point of praying for this? Does she think that her god has been lazy, indifferent or naive about this for over 200 years but will finally get up off the couch and take out the garbage if nagged enough?

    In a letter to the Danbury Baptist association in 1802, Thomas Jefferson assured them the Constitution would not ever limit an individual’s free expression of religion, reiterating the Constitution’s intent.

    It’s amazing that she can say this while making it obvious that she doesn’t even know what it means. But I guess when you regard imposing your religious views on others and making them pay for the privilege as the “free expression of religion”, it’s hard to imagine why others would see it as an infringement of their rights.

  • The Lorax

    Yes, pray. Because there is no greater power in this universe than prayer. Surely the light of the divine spirit will alter our government for the better.

    Oh.. you should vote as well, ’cause.. well, you know.. *mumbleprayerdoesntworkmumble*

  • peterh

    Yep. Today’s serving of industrial-grade stupid.

  • Doug Little

    This ruling has become one of the greatest enemies of God in our nation today

    Yep, absolutely, because you know, god’s find it hard to exist when you can’t begin indoctrination at a young age throughout the public school system or flood the public square with reminders of their efficacy and stroking of their egos.

  • John Hinkle

    Thanks for playing, Doctor Cindy. Here’s your purple participation ribbon. Your seat is over there at the child’s table.

    Oh and

    Ask God to give favor to pro-life, pro-biblical defense of marriage, pro-fiscal conservative candidates. Pray that pro-biblical value candidates will be voted into office.

    yeah, that’ll go a long way toward improving our economy. Somewhere a Wall St. fat cat is having a good chuckle over your entreaties.

  • howie51

    Won’t do Cindy much good to pray. The Lord almighty is a bit busy at the moment talking to Bachmann, Cain and Perry about why he fucked up so badly.

    howie51, he may have a little time to pencil in next week. After the Broncos are trounced in their first playoff game he won’t have to spend the bulk of his time propping up Tim Tebow and keeping that quarterback’s fans from being butthurt.

  • longstreet63

    I dunno. I just can’t follow the prayer mindset. On the one hand, you’ve got the Divine Plan, which you’re presumably demanding the Infallible Creator to dump, substituting what your non-infinite monkey brain happens to think is a better idea.

    “Well, if I make that team win the game this week, the inevitable result will be a famine in Asia that triggers a regional nuclear war, but Monkey Brain sure seems passionate about it, so I guess it’s not that big a deal…”

    On the other, you’ve got the assumption that the All-knowing Overlord either hasn’t noticed that his Infallible Divine Plan has gone wildly off the rails or He just can’t be bothered to do anything about it.

    “Hmm, so this idea of Separating Church and State seems to have shown up, thus removing my elect from positions of temporal power and ensuring the triumph of Sin and darkness.

    Eh, whatever. As long as no one bitches about it.”

  • dingojack

    And one supposes that Cindi will be praying really, really hard for the US airforce to go away too. @@

    PS: Don’t bother voting fundies, you just keep rimming your impotent, psychotic child-god, just as Dr Cindi commands!

  • frankb

    yeah, I am kind of weak on what this prayer stuff is supposed to do. Does God change is infinite plan if enough people pray the same thing? That seems less than omniscient. Does prayer give people precise instructions to make mass movements effective? That doesn’t seem very omnipotent. Does prayer make people feel good? THAT’S IT. So sit on your hands, waste your time, and feel good.

    “Ask God to give favor to pro-life, pro-biblical defense of marriage, pro-fiscal conservative candidates.”

    Because god currently does not favor pro-life, pro-biblical defense of marriage, or pro-fiscal conservative candidates? Sometimes these things are seriously confusing…isn’t…does…ummm…*headasplode*

  • Hercules Grytpype-Thynne

    I’m amazed that she can make the point that “no such language” as “separation of church and state” appears in the Constitution, and then cite Jefferson’s letter to the Danbury Baptists as “reiterating the Constitution’s intent.” It was in that very letter that Jefferson said that the First Amendment’s religion clauses had the effect of “building a wall of separation between Church & State”. Does she not know this, or is she just counting on her audience’s not knowing it?

  • Zinc Avenger

    Prayer: It’s absolutely the least you can do.

    Bibbity-bobbity-boo is speaking in tongues? I never knew that!

    She’s also calling herself “Dr.” Cincy Jacobs now because she has honorary degrees from worthless Christian diploma mills.

    To be fair, she tried throwing them away, but three days later they were back on her wall.

    longstreet63 “I dunno. I just can’t follow the prayer mindset.”

    Prayer brings one’s own will in line with God’s. Luckily, He agrees with her.

    Hercules Grytpype-Thynne “It was in that very letter that Jefferson said that the First Amendment’s religion clauses had the effect of ‘building a wall of separation between Church & State’.”

    And Jesus can walk through walls. Consider yourself refuted.

  • tripencrypt

    As a life long southerner, it brings me no small amount of pride that the opinion of the Supreme Court in Everson v. Board of Education was written by Hugo Black of Alabama.

    Haha … I hadn’t read this post yet because I was busy getting a post ready for my own blog — a preview excerpt from Liars For Jesus, Volume 2, the purpose of which just happens to be about debunking the myth that Everson v. Board of Education is what started this whole church/state separation debate! So now I have an excuse to shamelessly promote my own post on Ed’s blog!

    Oh noes! Prayers! I’m scared!

  • sunsangnim

    I love how the word “activist” means “a court or judge that made a decision we disagree with.” So Roe v Wade was decided by an activist court, but if it were overturned, the court overturning would not be activist? What if a judge makes a decision that conservatives like, and then makes one they don’t like on an unrelated case? Does he or she suddenly become an activist?

  • cayborduin

    Any in-group has no idea how odd they look to others. And right-wing Christians are the most extreme. The whole package is bizarre – the clothes, hairstyle, make-up, babbling in tongues, “Let’s give a shout-out to the Lord”… WTF?
