Dumbest Wingnut Ever Interrupts Muslim Civics Day

You’ve probably heard by now about the group of Christians who interrupted a civics day held by a Muslim group at the Texas state capitol, an event where they got to meet their representatives and learn about the government. Here’s what I didn’t know about it. This is the lady who led the protest and, at one point, grabbed a microphone away from a speaker and started shouting about Jesus:

[Christine] Weick, who became a viral video star last fall after “MONSTER Energy drinks are the work of SATAN!!!” was posted online, was interviewed Thursday by a variety of local and conservative media outlets after she took the microphone from a Muslim speaker and proclaimed Jesus as Lord.

Yep, it’s the same woman who made that bizarre video claiming that Monster energy drinks are Satanic because of the logo. And she’s every bit as stupid as you might imagine:

“They came into our churches and held a call of prayer at the Washington National Cathedral – that was a statement that they made,” said Christine Weick, who disrupted the event in November and then a Muslim rally this week in Texas.

“But I would like to know, can Franklin Graham go into one of their big mosques – maybe the biggest one in our country – and let’s have a service there?” Weick said. “Let’s bring in our Bibles, let’s bring in our liturgy, let’s bring in the hymnals, let’s put up crucifixes where we acknowledge Jesus Christ as Lord, and let’s go into their mosque and do that. I guarantee you that will never happen because they scream tolerance of everything, and yet they’re not tolerant of us – at all.”

Except, of course, they didn’t “come into” your churches. They were invited in to that particular church, just as Christians have also been invited in to mosques for similar interfaith services. But to a world class dumbass like this, those little details don’t matter. Whatever it takes to feed the martyr complex, that’s what they’ll believe.

    What a small scary world they must live in.

    You MUST watch her Monster drinks video to see how utterly stupid, smug and delusional she is. Quite incredible.

    “They came into our churches and held a call of prayer at the Washington National Cathedral – that was a statement that they made,” said Christine Weick

    I don’t who who went into Weick’s church to advertise the event, but the Washington National Cathedral is owned by the Episcopal Church. Apparently that church did not consult with Weick before they invited a Muslim group to hold a prayer service there.

    just as Christians have also been invited in to mosques

    Heck, the mosque Malcolm X was based at is presently allowing a Baptist church and a Jewish synagogue use it’s space:

    When the facade of a nearby Christian church collapsed, for example, its congregation held weekly services at the mosque. A Jewish group without a synagogue now gathers there, too.

    How pathetic and empty must one’s life be if it’s given meaning by being the self-appointed victim of a non-crime.

    @2.

    Seen it. The ’80’s called. They want their crazy back.

    Critics of hers have pointed out that even if it is “6,6,6” instead of a highly stylized “M”, she gets the numerology wrong. It’s “18” not “six hundred & sixty six”.

  • caseloweraz

    Just watched the video. Incredible!

    “Short top, long tail — this could be the number 6.”

    “And what is witchcraft? When the cross goes upside down.” [She demonstrates] “Bottoms up! And the Devil laughs.”

    I hope there wasn’t even a smidgin of satanic liquid in the can when she made that demonstration.

    JaclynGlenn does a good debunking. Her Youtube channel might be worth following. (And she sells Carl Sagan t-shirts on her Web site.)

    By the way: Today is “Visit our mosque day” in Great Britain.

    You’ve probably heard by now about the group of Christians who interrupted a civics day held by a Muslim group at the Texas state capitol,..

    Saw the headlines. I just assumed this was standard, normal behavior for Texas.

    Seems like xianity is going dowhill, if that is still possible. Satan-Florida is a plastic angel. Satan Texas is a soft drink can. Well, whatever.

    Now just why is anyone supposed to be afraid of plastic angels made in China or soft drink cans? I’m a lot more afraid of this wacko woman. I seriously doubt if she is any better at crossing streets than thinking things through. I’d be afraid she gets hit by a car trying to cross the street without her minder.

    What????

    1. No witchcraft isn’t turning a cross upside down. It’s praying to an invisible SKy Monster god to kill Obama aka imprecatory prayer. Among a whole lot of other things.

    2. The upside down cross as satanic is a modern folklore invention anyway. It’s an ancient xian symbol. The Apostle St. Peter is alleged to have been crucified upside down, the founder of the Catholic church.

    It is his symbol. There is an upside down cross on the Throme of St. Peter in the Vatican, the Pope’s chair.

    Rep to Staff: Ask Muslim Visitors to Pledge Allegiance | The …

    www. texastribune. org/…/rep-staff-ask-muslim-visitors…

    3 days ago – UPDATED: A Muslim group at the Capitol has asked Speaker Joe … Molly White, R-Belton, is not in Austin today to celebrate Texas Muslim Capitol Day. … the interruptions persisted, with the protesters yelling, “Islam is a lie!

    Looks like soft drink satan phobic has a prominent ally in Texas. A state representative is apparently her ally.

  • wildbill

    There was competition for dumbest wingnut in Austin that day. Here is what one of the state representatives did:,

    “I did leave an Israeli flag on the reception desk in my office with instructions to staff to ask representatives from the Muslim community to renounce Islamic terrorist groups and publicly announce allegiance to America and our laws,” she posted on Facebook. “We will see how long they stay in my office.” http://www.texastribune.org/2015/01/29/rep-staff-ask-muslim-visitors-pledge-allegiance/

    the stupid is strong in this one.

  • http://www.facebook.com/den.wilson d.c.wilson

    What’s funny is that the state wanted them to pledge allegiance to America using an Israeli flag.

  • grumpyoldfart

    Are the mainstream Christians rallying around to help the Weik family overcome the madness?

  • Alverant

    I wonder where are all those people who equated the Furgason protesters with rioters. This group seems to be much closer to committing criminal behavior.

  • jaybee

    Weick works hard to be a top-shelf moron. She is the author of a book, Explain This (http://www.explainthis.us/), and made a bit of news back in November when she interrupted prayer service at the National Cathedral: http://www.christianpost.com/news/woman-who-proclaimed-jesus-during-islamic-prayer-service-at-national-cathedral-i-love-muslims-129782/

    Dumbest wingnut ever eh?

    Www’y’ell I dunno.

    There’s a lot of competition for that particular title and just when you think one has it won another one comes along to top the last one ..

  • http://composer99.blogspot.ca composer99

    I feel like any granting of the title “dumbest wingnut” has to come with a very short timeline. “Ever” is just too long; it’ll get toppled lickety-split.

    So, the question is, which time horizon is likely to maximize the accuracy of the title:

    – Dumbest Wingnut of the Day

    – […] of the Week

    – […] of the Month

    Or do we go really hardcore, and accept Dumbest Wingnut of the Hour?
