bad economy leads Christianists to idol worship

"He . . . made it into a molten calf; and they said, 'This is your god, O Israel, who brought you up from the land of Egypt.'"- Exodus 32:4 (NASB)

"At that time they made a calf and brought a sacrifice to the idol, and were rejoicing in the works of their hands."- Acts 7:41 (NASB)

A supposed prophet endorsed by Pat Robertson's ministry, Cindy Jacobs, claims God spoke to her, "Cindy, the strongman over America doesn’t live in Washington, DC – the strongman lives in New York City! Call My people to pray for the economy." So, Jacobs called on fellow believers to meet and pray before, of all places, a giant Wall Street bull statue on Wednesday:

(See Wonkette for more pictures).

Of course, the Bible is clear that God dislikes idolatry -- particularly of the bovine variety. So it's no surprise that today Wonkette reports on the repercussions of Wednesday's idolatry: "APOCALYPSE: ZOMBIES KILL FUNDIES, TAKE OVER WALL STREET BULL"
