The Amusement of Wingnuts in Groups

The Amusement of Wingnuts in Groups April 26, 2012

Right Wing Watch has an amusing video and transcript of a conversation between some of the looniest wingnuts in the country — Lou Engle, Rena Lindevaldsen, Matt Barber, Cynthia Dunbar (yes, the one from the Texas BOE) and Greg Quinlan (an ex-gay type). Engle wants to pray, you see, but he’s waiting for God to give him the go-ahead:

Engle: I think we need a massive, concerted prayer movement to deal with principalities and powers and pray that God would release laborers into the harvest field.

Barber: If there is anybody in the room who is adept that leading that …

Dunbar: You’ve got that in your heart, with your spirit, and we’re with you.

Quinlan: We need that.

Barber: Did you volunteer yourself, Lou?

Engle: In 2006, we did 50 days and 50 nights of intercession of seven young people, we were given a dream of two tornadoes coming to destroy America and they were the homosexual and abortion tornadoes. In the dream I was given a sight to raise up intercession to confront those tornadoes.

Quinlan: Please.

Engle: And Bound4Life was raised up but I’m haunted that God has not opened the door for me to go after this thing, I’ve tried, I’ve gotten blasted.

Barber: It’s time.

Engle: I don’t know how to do it but I am crying out to God for an answer.

Lindevaldsen: Meet with us afterwards … we need a prayer movement because a spiritual battle is at the root of this.

Someone needs to take this video and add yakkity sax to it.

  • The best part about this is how baffled they are that god told them to do something and doesn’t seem to be supporting their efforts. It’s like He doesn’t care or something! Almost makes one question whether He’s there at all, doesn’t it?

    How cute, the inaugral meeting of the Authoritarian Followers’ Club.

    Engel: We should nominate someone as Chairman. I nominate Matt.

    Barber: No, no, I nominate Cynthia!

    Dunbar: Me, a woman, in a leadership position, unbiblical! I nominate Greg.

    Quinlan: Well really I’m not good at leading. I nominate – um – Rena.

    Lindevaldsen: And nominate Lou!

    Engel: I would like to but god says – no! So I nominate…

    & etc.

    Hilarious.

    So that’s what “speaking in tongues” sounds like…

    I didn’t know who Engle was, so I wiki’d him. What a horrifying person.

    Homosexual Tornado would be a great queercore band name. Abortion Tornado would be good for metal, I bet a name like that would get a band a guaranteed opening spot for Dying Fetus.

  • I don’t know, I could almost buy the “gay tornadoes” thing considering all the tornadoes that have pillaged and killed through huge swaths of the Babble Belt the last few years.

    Obviously Bible-monster listens to gay prayers and not to fundies’.

  • anandine

    He never said whether the tornadoes were averted.

  • Trebuchet

    …pray that God would release laborers into the harvest field.

    As long as they’re not Mexican laborers, presumably.

  • TCC

    I officially nominate “amusement” as the collective noun for wingnuts. (I know we’ve had this conversation before…)

  • Rob Monkey

    Homosexual tornado? Weird, I always think of tornadoes hitting us right in the Bible Belt, but it turns out this whole time the windstorms were trying to UNDO our Bible Belt! We should take a poll of wingnuts and see what they think is more scary, the homosexual tornado or the Gayroller?

    God answers every prayer.

    Sometimes the answer is “what the fuck drugs are YOU on?”

  • Randomfactor

    And I believe the collective noun for wingnuts is a “grove.”

    Fortunately, pure wingnut groves are rare. They’re usually mixed in with more useful species.

    I think the “homosexual torndaos” hit the bible belt because that’s where all the fabulous closets are.

    Oh, and I believe the collective noun for wingnuts is a “falwell”.

  • Homosexual Tornado would be a great queercore band name. Abortion Tornado would be good for metal, I bet a name like that would get a band a guaranteed opening spot for Dying Fetus.

    Nah, Homosexual Tornado is the name I’m using when I open up a gay hair salon (which is to say, a hair salon). The Abortion Tornadoes will be the name of my minor league baseball team.

    “God answers every prayer, but sometimes the answer is ‘No.’”

    Sometimes the answer that floats up is “try again later.”
