There are demons in the water
There are demons in the air
There are demons in the people
There are demons everywhere!
Let us cast away your demons—
We can put them in a goat—
You can safely go to heaven;
It will only cost your vote.
On the eve of the elections
We are putting out the call:
It’s Dominionists or Demons;
Only one can rule us all!
Don’t you want to go to Heaven?
Don’t you want to be God’s child?
You must vote the way we tell you…
And the devil slowly smiled.
Important cool stuff, after the jump:
On NPR’s Fresh Air, Host Terry Gross interviews “C. Peter Wagner, a leading figure in the new apostolic reformation” This is a grown man who believes that Japan is cursed because the emperor had sex with the sun goddess. And that casting out demons is a literal process rather than a metaphorical one.
It’s clear that Wagner is well aware of where he is; he very carefully phrases his own religion’s superiority over others such that he sounds fairly respectful.
Again, the real fun (the full interview is not yet available; it may be the real fun when it comes online) is in the comments. Being NPR, those supporting Wagner’s ideas are few and far between (although those who support his right to hold them are everywhere), but they do pop up. And of course, Terry Gross is simultaneously a fantastic interviewer and a liberal evil-doer bent on accomplishing her agenda, depending on which commenter you read.
