All of the pieces are now falling together. Just days ago, this author wrote a story about a middle aged woman who verbally assaulted Muslims at the National Cathedral who had gathered to denounce violence and promote religious unity. Then the video of the ‘Monster Energy Drink is the Devil’ lady made it across my desk. It’s amazing how fate works some times.
Monster Energy Devil lady at the National Cathedral
On Nov. 14, a beautiful service was set up at the National Cathedral, and for the first time ever, Muslims were invited to pray in the church. There had been threats of violence upon the service’s announcement, so the gathering was closed to the public. Of course, one crazed right-wing nut could be counted on to hide in the bathroom and crash the party.
To watch the video of the lady’s outburst, where she claims that we “allowed” Muslims to build their mosques in “our” country, go ahead and click here. Make sure you come back; you don’t want to miss this.
After writing the above story, I stumbled across a video where a middle aged woman does a surprisingly well, yet still crazy, job of describing how Monster Energy Drink is really some sort of demonic beverage trying to bring about the end times… or something straightjackety like that. Funnily enough, she looked a lot like the National Cathedral heckler. Just look at the video below.
Right-wing site does the work for me
If you watched the video in the above link, you can understand it when I say that some people should just be heard once, if even that many times, and then disappear into the sunset. Sadly, this bigoted woman, who interrupted a religious unity gathering by telling others that their religion was wrong, became an instant hero in the right-wing community.
Insane conservative group WorldNetDaily (WND) managed to track the heckler down. Her name is Christine Weick. They performed an interview with her, and of course she had insanely hateful things to say, such as:
“My blood began to boil as I read the comments of how this is to be such a wonderful event and how religious tolerance can, for the first time, be shown in our nation’s capital.”
Well, we can’t let religious tolerance happen now, can we?
The Monster Energy Drink connection
So we have the National Cathedral heckler’s name, and she looks a lot like the Monster Energy Devil lady seen in the video below. How could we connect the dots, though? Well, soon after discovering Weick’s real name, author Robyn Pennacchia from DeathAndTaxes managed to find this two-year-old Podcast from Christine Weick herself:
Now remember the voice in the video below. Sound familiar? That’s right people: you can all take a breath. There are not two of this crazy lady running around. Just one named Christine Weick. Okay, there are plenty of people as crazy as her and we can still be disappointed about that if we want.
Sometimes karma does more than we ever could
Now, I’m not a vindictive person, and I don’t much believe in karma. Either way, though, it seems something in this universe is teaching Christine Weick a lesson. In the WND interview, Weick explained that she had recently gone through a divorce “over a spiritual conflict” and been disowned by her son and daughter over her “stand” against marriage equality.
Like I said, I’m not vindictive, but I’ve seen enough gay children disowned by their parents. It’s good to see someone get disowned for being a hateful bigot for once. Oh, and if that wasn’t enough, Weick was also in the news back on Mother’s Day 2014 when she got a slushie thrown on her while standing at an intersection holding a sign that said “Thank your mom today for not being gay.”
I swear… honestly… I’m not vindictive. But I’d be lying if I said all of this didn’t put a smile on my face. Come on Christine, you think God is doing all of this bad stuff to you because you’re doing RIGHT by him? No, you’re not Job (read a book people!). Go home. Oh, and the closing word from the Weick interview?
“I told the Lord last night, ‘OK, you can take me now,’ but I don’t know. I think he may have other plans for me.”
Christine, congratulations. You just managed to get every atheist and liberal in the country praying…
That you’re wrong.
