What do bird die-offs and Marco Rubio have in common?

Meet Cindy Jacobs. Cindy and her husband Mike run Generals International, an organization based in Texas that devotes itself to societal change through prayer. The organization calls Cindy...seriously, get this...God's mouthpiece.

Okay, seriously, what is it with you fundies that have the kahonies to call yourselves God's ambassador, mouthpiece, instrument, lap dog, etc., as if you have God's cell number on speed dial?? See, look what you made me do! I used two question marks in a sentence!

Anyway, Cindy believes that the recent bird and fish die-offs in Beebe, Arkansas are God's wrath because of the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell. One would think that God would take his anger out on those that repealed DADT instead of 5,000 birds. But what Jacobs isn't telling you is that massive bird die-offs have also recently occurred in Sweden, Australia, New Zealand, Vietnam, Philippines, Brazil, and Italy. So, by Jacobs' logic, these nations have repealed DADT as well?

This is a woman who prophesied that God has delivered us Marco Rubio to be the next great leader in American politics. For those of you who may not know, Rubio was a Teabagger favorite and won election to the Senate in November. He is also the target of multiple ethics violation complaints and investigations, including misuse of GOP credit cards for personal goods and services.

Rubio attracted quite a bit of attention to himself when it was learned that one of his biggest financial backers was a Cuban-American tobacco company, Dosal. When he was the Florida Speaker of the House, Rubio made it possible for Dosal to bypass legislation that would have made them pay up big money in recent settlements with the state of Florida. Somehow all of this apparently means that Rubio is God's right-hand man when it comes to the tobacco lobby in American politics.

There's a term for people like Cindy Jacobs -- crazy. Although delusional, thief, liar, charlatan, fraud, and deceptive are just as valid.

Watch Cindy make a complete fool of herself below.
