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

29

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. Well, the sheeple seem to be losing the last of their pitifully few brain cells.

  2. 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.

  3. 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

  4. They’re eating the wrong grass or they were eating the right grass and this is the result.

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

  6. 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.

  7. This is taking the comforting metaphor of sheep and shepherd way too far! A pastor should have more respect for his congregants than this.

  8. I always have believed in evolution……I am now a firm believer of de-evolution. (sic).

    Think they will poop in the field and sleep in the barn?

    Why do you think they call themselves “pastors”?

    Ok,,That was a real stinker……..

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

  11. 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.

    Just confirms Poe’s Law.

    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!

    Amazing what putting the Power of Jesus in your abs will do for those demonic pregnancies!

  16. 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….

  17. You see what we have to contend with here in SA. Pretty embarrassing.In reply to #17 by NearlyNakedApe:

  18. 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

  21. True. Also on SA news. If one lived in SA and interracted with the local religiots, this is not very surprising. Sad, though.

  22. 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”.

  23. The video is even better. Now I’m aware why it was so hard to get the white folk to relinquish control of South Africa. Out the frying pain into the fire

    NOPE! This sort of stuff IS going on in South Africa – and the courts are finally taking action!

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-43002701

    A South African self-styled prophet who sprayed his followers with the insecticide, Doom, has been found guilty of assault, local media report.

    Lethebo Rabalago – widely known as the Doom Pastor – was also found guilty of contravening the Agricultural Stock Remedies Act, a court ruling said.

    Rabalago claims the insect repellent he used in 2016 could heal cancer and HIV.

    A sentence is yet to be handed down after the verdict by Mookgopong Magistrates Court in Limpopo province.

    On Friday, magistrate Frans Mahodi told the court the state had proved its case beyond reasonable doubt that the five people who laid assault charges were violated, South Africa’s national broadcaster SABC reports.

    The magistrate said the fact that the complainants “were sprayed on their faces with Doom makes this offence [the] worst of its kind”.

    He also revealed some of them had suffered “detrimental side effects… like coughing for more than seven months” after the incident.

    Rabalago – who runs the Mount Zion General Assembly – was arrested after it emerged he had used the product to “cure” his followers of various ailments in 2016.

    South Africa has seen a wave of incidents where church members have been subjected to unorthodox rituals which purportedly healed them of various ailments.

    The self-styled prophet in Pretoria instructed members of his congregation to drink petrol

    In 2014, Facebook images on the church’s website also showed his followers eating grass and flowers on his orders

    Dubbed “snake pastor” by local media
    The 25-year-old “man of God” reportedly started his church 2014 after training under Lesego Daniel.

    In 2015, Facebook images showed the self-proclaimed prophet feeding his members stones which he claimed to have turned into bread

    That same year, other images emerged of him feeding his followers snakes and rats, which they claimed had been turned into chocolate
