A good Friend of Unfair Park sends along a video presently making the rounds in which Red Oak's own Cindy Jacobs, self-proclaimed "respected prophet," says there's a very good explanation for why those 5,000 birds died in Arkansas on New Year's Eve. And, no, it had nothing to do with a loud noise. Sorry, science. Instead, says Jacobs, it was the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell.
Let's talk about this Arkansas pattern and say, could it be a pattern? We're going to watch and see. But the blackbirds fell to the ground in Beebe, Arkansas. Well the Governor of Arkansas' name is Beebe. And also, there was something put out of Arkansas called "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" by a former Governor, this was proposed, Bill Clinton. As so, could there be a connection between this passage [Hosea 4] and now that we've had the repeal of the Don't Ask, Don't Tell, where people now legally in the United States have broken restraints with the Scripture because the Scripture says in Romans 1 that homosexuality is not allowed.
Jacobs, for those unfamiliar with her work, is best known as the "gay demon" exorcist courtesy her cameo on Rachel Maddow's show over the summer. Still, I prefer Less Than Zero author Bret Easton Ellis's explanation for the dead birds myself.
