Fleecing Sheep Through Better Biblical Blather

The Devil made him do “certain things.” And all this time I thought it was Andy Shay.

(Thomas) Weeks sparked thunderous applause and cheers when he asked members to tell those seated next to them: “We’ve got certain things going on right now, but I refuse to stop coming to the house God built.”

Weeks, wearing a dark suit and his customary bow tie, blamed the devil for the accusation that has him facing two felony charges. He didn’t, however, offer any specifics before introducing a guest minister who preached in his stead, then exiting the room.

And that’s before they all emptied their wallets for the clown. Full AJC article here. But wait, there’s more! Can’t get enough mega-church misleadings from here in Georgia? Try Florida. Lord knows they can pack ’em to the rafters there.

    Who do these congregants (those that are on the “bishops” side) have faith in Weeks or god. It is no suprise, however, that people buy that garbage about the “devil making him do it.” History is littered with this type of deception. It is a gift from God, or it is a curse of the devil…people really need to start taking responsibilty for themselves…you know things that are real…rather than blaming incidents and phenomena on fictional characters. The Will to Power…Weeks figured it out, when will everybody else?

    Bishop THOMAS WEEKS needs to go see DR. PHIL!

    JUANITA needs to switch to decaf!

    Now – Mr. Weeks KNEW that woman was LOUD and STRONG when he married her.

    GOPeach,

    That last statement makes is sound like you are saying that she was asking for it. I very well may be reading that wrong, or too much into it, but just because a woman is LOUD and STRONG does not give any person the right to physically assault them, EVEN IF he did (or rather, did not) know that before they wed.

  4. My cursor just ran over the advertisement on the right of Peach Pundit. A voice said, “Congratulations, you have just been chosen to win two free Ipod Nanos.” Earlier there had been an ad for the ideal mate, with a pic of a woman with her blouse unbuttoned to her navel.

    My first question is, “Was this a gift from God?” and “What is Ipod Nano a new word for ideal mate?”

    Stephaniemills21, I personally think you were reading Go Peach incorrectly.

    I took it as saying, “Don’t marry a strong woman and then beat the crap out of her (presumably) for it.”

    It just ain’t very Christ-like. And IMHO it certainly should not be acceptable.
