Dumb bunnies: followers of a Christian con-artist are commanded to eat grass to get good with God

28

VISIT the Facebook page of Rabboni Centre Ministries in South Africa and there you will find unsettling photos of people behaving like rabbits and sheep.

On all fours, and grazing grass, these idiots are under the spell of a young charlatan called “Professor” Lesego Daniel, who, according to this report, made his followers eat grass after explaining in a sermon that Jesus had many other disciples other than the 12 listed in the traditional Bible.

They apparently also commanded stupid acts to prove the existence of The Almighty.

One grass-eater, Rosemary Phetha, said:

Yes, we eat grass and we’re proud of it because it demonstrates that, with God’s power, we can do anything.

 

The 21-year-old Unisa law student says she had been battling a sore throat for more than a year. She claims it was healed after Daniel:

Turned me into a sheep and instructed me to eat grass.

  1. O.k. read the comments and now appreciate it’s a hoax. What does it say about me that I sort of believed it at first? There’s really no need for it though. There’s plenty of true stuff that’s as nutty.

      And here was I thinking that they had eaten some of those parasite-crazed ants and had developed the ability to see god.

      Just confirms Poe’s Law.

  2. I don’t like the “dumb bunnies” part of the headline. Humans do all kinds of crazy s***, for whatever reasons. Let the reader fill in the blank.

    E.g., another video of Mr. Daniel “healing” folk looks just like a Benny Hinn circus, I mean gathering. The pastors all have 20 million dollars in their heavenly bank account!

    This guy just posted a rebut to the grass eating event. :p

      Yea! Some apologizes are due to all the bunnies that were insulted by this article.

  3. I wish I could say I am surprised about this but, I’m not. Unfortunately, when the faithful receive what they perceive to be guidance in the name of their god, they will do many things that rationally, they would not do in other cases. All you have to do is say it is for religion and maybe threaten with possible damnation, and you have them in your hands.

    If they had thought about it, like really broke it down, something would have shown this was just a dumb idiotic idea from the start. I hate saying people are stupid, because we have many people who are quite brilliant on this earth. But in regards to america particularly, when ‘the people’ cannot even name the three branches of government, it feels that stupid applies. And much cannot be expected with the combination of religion and just plain stupidity.

      If this is true, it’s tragic, but I think it’s probably a wind up.

      In any case I question it’s being posted on this forum.

      Lesego Daniel of Rabboni Ministries purportedly is the real deal, so to speak. 2012 “faith healing” video.

      I think this type of article is posted for lurkers – RD website also exposes frauds – always cast a critical eye, folks!

  4. The are a lot of Christian con artists out there but “professor” Daniel is really pushing the envelope. Sugar-coat any absurdity in the pseudo-legitimacy of a religion and you can make people believe and do absolutely anything.

    PS: I almost busted a gut laughing when I saw the picture….

  5. I don’t get it: is this a hoax or not? In the comments on the link, someone called barriejohn says it is, but members of this site – some of them, anyway – are still responding as though it were a true story. Perhaps the truth doesn’t matter as much as we at our little oasis like to pretend it does.

    Makes one wonder who are the actual bunnies though. Or sheeple.

      It is no hoax, although it helps if you are a regular at the Freethinker and know Barriejohn’s sense of humour

  6. This is so sad it makes me want to cry! Taking advantage of such gullible people is reprehensible. It’s not just religion that can do this. Just think of all the crazy stuff that unscrupulous marketers sell people to look beautiful, or all the weird supplements that are consumed under the pretext of being healthier.

    If I could rewrite the Ten Commandments I would add “Thou shalt not be gullible”, but also “Thou shalt not take advantage of those who are gullible”.
