Rick Perry’s August prayer rally, not only brought thousands of Christians to pray for a “nation in crisis,” but also broke the curse of Native American cannibalism, said Cindy Jacobs, a self-proclaimed prophet and an endorser of the event.
Jacobs believes the United States is cursed with violence because Native Americans, who “did blood sacrifice,” “were cannibals” and “ate people,” Right Wing Watch reported Monday. But the good news, said Jacobs in August, on her show “God Knows,” is that Perry’s prayer rally helped erase the curse.
“[T]he land is starting to rejoice, you see, because of that prayer,” said Jacobs.
Jacobs wasn’t the only one officially endorsing The Response with the same view — New Apostolic Reformation figures like John Benefiel and Jay Swallow participated in an event in Texas where they destroyed Native American art objects in order to “divorce and tear down the principalities of Baal, Asherah and Leviathan.”
Jacobs, who claims birds are dying because of the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, and Benefiel, who asserts the Statue of Liberty is a “demonic idol,” are self-proclaimed apostles and part of the New Apostolic Reformation, a religious movement with ties to Perry that seeks to reign over seven sectors of society, including government, media and business.
Along with such spiritual fallout, The Response also launched a conservative Christian voter drive to help speed up the movement’s progress in politics.
