“Blasting” inside a church has forever been redefined
Five “vessels of the L-ord” stand accused of beating a man inside a church to try to cure him of being gay while the rest of the congregation alleges more physical abuse and a “maniacal attempt” to control their sex lives.
Ex-congregants of the Word of Faith Fellowship in Rutherford County told The Associated Press in on-the-record interviews that instead of finding inner peace and eternal life, they were regularly punched, smacked, choked, slammed to the floor or thrown through walls.”
All in the name of the Lord. Plus the game of the beat the gay away.
By comparison, they make the Duggars looks like sex-crazed hippies. Some of the Word of Faith Fellowship rules include; no celebrating of birthdays, secular or religious holidays. Both men and women have to keep their shirts on when swimming, and no sex on the wedding night. For married couples, love-making is limited to 30 minutes, no foreplay is allowed, the lights must be turned off and only the missionary position is sanctioned.These are the five arrested for, “kidnapping, simple assault, and/or assault by strangulation” for beating up the poor gay guy. Did G-d order them to smile in their mug shots? Frankly, I’m sure they all shouted, “lock her up” during the election. See, G-d does grant wishes. Just not theirs’.
Victims of the violence, they say, included pre-teens and toddlers, even crying babies, who were vigorously shaken, screamed at and sometimes smacked to banish demons.
The Associated Press also obtained audio from what is called “blasting.” The Associated Press said a “blasting” is a verbal onslaught often conducted in hours-long sessions meant to cast out devils.
