Researching her religious beliefs just keeps giving and giving...
Did you know that "The Third Wave of the Holy Spirit" movement killed Princess Diana and Mother Teresa? They also caused natural disasters. Holy Crap, if they keep praying for McCain to die, he doesn't' have a chance in hell!
Wagner's top leaders often conduct spiritual warfare campaigns against the demons that block the acceptance of their brand of Christian belief, such as 'Operation Ice Castle' in the Himalayas in 1997. Several of their top prophets and generals of intercession spent weeks in intensive prayer to "confront the Queen of Heaven." This queen is considered by them to be one of the most powerful demons over the earth and is the Great Harlot of Mystery Babylon in Revelation. (The "Great Harlot [or 'whore'] of Mystery Babylon" theme also figures prominently in the sermons of Texas megachurch pastor and Christians United For Israel founder John Hagee, former endorser of John McCain's 2008 presidential bid.) Wagner and his group also claim that the Queen of Heaven is Diana, the pagan god of the biblical book Ephesians and the god of Mary veneration in the Roman Catholic Church. Following the 'Operation Ice Castle' prayer excursion which included planting a flag for Jesus on Mt. Everest, one of the lead prayer intercessors from the excursion, Ana Mendez, reported that there had been dramatic results including, "millions have come to faith in Asia... and other things happened which I believe are also connected...an earthquake had destroyed the basilica of Assisi, where the Pope had called a meeting of all world religions; a hurricane destroyed the infamous temple 'Baal-Christ' in Acapulco, Mexico; the Princes Diana died... and Mother Theresa died in India, one of the most famous advocates of Mary as Co-Redeemer."
I remember when "Jesus Camp" came out, and people I talked to about it were all dismissive, and said "Oh, well, these people are just fringe, they don't have any power or influence, they can't do any harm, they can't make their dreams of world domination and destruction come true..."
Well...they have a vice-presidential candidate on a major party ticket now. Anyone still think they are fringe and harmless?
Well, maybe mostly harmless...the earthquake that the "third wavers" claim destroyed the Basillica of Assisi only damaged it (from wikipedia) but Hey, they managed to kill four people, so I imagine they are happy with that...
On September 26, 1997, Assisi was struck by an earthquake which caused four fatalities. The Basilica was badly damaged (part of the vault collapsed, carrying with it a fresco by Cimabue), and was closed for two years for restoration.
Anyone wondering who Ana Mendez is, besides being the person claiming responsibility for Princess Diana's death? Here's some more info...
God love their crazy little hearts. What would I do for entertainment if I didn't have Sarah Palin's religion to explore?
