Bad Decision Maker? No Problem!
2006.05.25 (Thu) 17:13
As Ed Brayton has reported (hat tip to Les), televangelist Rod Parsley is charging mindless fucking sheep...er, that is, devout and faithful Christians fifty bucks for three wonderful blessings:
Specifically, he said that God would bless them with three things. He would make sure they heard His voice more clearly than ever; he would make sure they were "protected from the deceptions of the adversary" (Satan, presumably, but perhaps Bill Clinton); and my personal favorite, he promised them that they would receive protection from making bad decisions - but only for one year.
What we really want to know is: if they're truly granted Protection from Bad Decision Making (a 7th level Abjuration spell, if we recall correctly), does it work retroactively — enabling them to go back and not make the decision to hand over fifty bucks for such a completely stupid deus ex placebo?
Rod Parsley will make you a Level 10 Creduloid!
