Sounds of Fundamentalism: Women Should Never Draw Attention to Themselves

Today’s Sound of Fundamentalism is a video clip of Jeff Harris, pastor of Anchor Baptist Church in Hilton, New York ignorantly explaining the Greek word for “apparel.” Three different Greek words are used for “apparel” in the New Testament. Harris, as Independent Fundamentalist Baptist (IFB) preachers are wont to do, picks the definition that best fits his archaic beliefs about women and how they should dress. Harris believes women should only wear long, flowing dresses that mute their shape. They mustn’t wear anything that draws attention to their bodies. Harris also says that women should be bashful around others — unlike IFB preachers such as Jeff Harris who are the center of attention everywhere they go.

Harris’ bio states:

Pastor Harris was saved at the age of 12 at Calvary Baptist Church in Danville, KY. He surrendered to the call to preach as a teenager and upon graduation from high school he studied at Hyles-Anderson College for one year. He then finished his training for the ministry and was ordained by Clays Mill Road Baptist Church & earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Pastoral Theology from Commonwealth Baptist College (Lexington, KY).

He married his wife Elizabeth (Tyra) Harris in 1999. After a brief stint as a staff member at Clays Mill Road Baptist Church the Harris family moved to Elizabethtown, KY where Pastor Harris founded the Lincoln Trail Baptist Church in September of 2001 (www.ltbc.us). He served as their Pastor until he resigned in July of 2012 to move to Rochester, NY to plant the Anchor Baptist Church.

Lorraine’s bio states:

Ms. DeAnna Lorraine is a recent Republican, “anti-establishment” Congressional Candidate who just completed her widely watched run against political Goliath Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker of the House, in California’s 12th Congressional District (San Francisco). Although she ultimately lost her race to a radical Socialist, her battle was hard fought and won the hearts of Americans all across the nation with her guts, refreshing honesty, and bold, unconventional campaign strategies. Everyone loved her Pelosi for Prison campaign where she bravely had a plane fly a giant 80 by 25-foot “Pelosi for Prison” banner in Pelosi’s very liberal district of San Francisco – and she intends to keep flying it throughout the year! DeAnna is also a popular YouTube Host, Conservative Political and Culture commentator, Author of ‘Making Love Great Again!’ and Host of her podcast and Internet show Taking Back America with DeAnna Lorraine.

As a former Personal Development Counselor turned outspoken political & culture warrior, she is famous for talking boldly about the destructive impacts of Liberalism and Feminism and how they’re destroying our relationships, the family – and our country on the whole. She invites everyone to join her in the fight of the millennium to take our country back.

Sounds of Fundamentalism: I’m a Baptist, Not a Protestant, Says IFB Pastor Cody Zorn

Today’s Sound of Fundamentalism is a video clip of Cody Zorn, pastor of Bible Missionary Baptist Church in Rockwell, North Carolina, explaining how Baptists have never been Protestants. This pseudo-historical nonsense is quite common among IFB churches and pastors. Baptists — the right kind, anyway — are True Christians®, the thinking goes.

Lyrics

He heals the sick He saves the lost
and died for you in case you’ve forgot, man
He’ll jump a building in a single bound
I once was lost but now I’m found
He needs no mask or cape or gown
all He needs is His holy crown
it’s time for you to understand Jesus Christ the Original Superman
He’ll be your hero in the end. He is that one true super friend

Chorus

Kryptonite can’t slow him down nothin’ can at all
He’s always there for you. He’ll pick you up if you should fall

He came to earth in the flesh and
Performing miracles and died for man
A forty day fast is more than I could take
he did it for you and he did it for my sake
Ye of little faith he said to them raised his hand and all was calm again
It’s time for you to understand
Jesus Christ the Original Superman

up up and away He’s saving souls in a new way
Just like Superman was there He’s always there to save the day
he works through all of us
Through Him we have the power
It’s time to unify so we can constantly devour
The devil and all of his games we need not be ashamed
Of anything we can do that we can glorify His name
Many names he has been given
Prince of Peace Son of Man
Here’s one more for his list.
the Original Superman

The Sounds of Fundamentalism: Pastor Marlon Bolton “Predicted” Coronavirus Pandemic

The Sounds of Fundamentalism is a series that I would like readers to help me with. If you know of a video clip that shows the crazy, cantankerous, or contradictory side of Evangelical Christianity, please send me an email with the name or link to the video. Please do not leave suggestions in the comment section.  Let’s have some fun!

Today’s Sound of Fundamentalism is a video clip of Evangelical pastor Marlon Bolton, AKA Prophet Fire, telling congregants he predicted the Coronavirus pandemic, the stock market crash, and food shortages.

The Miami New Times reports:

It was only a matter of time before peak-Florida characters started to emerge amid the coronavirus crisis.

A lot is going on with this one: Videos recently posted on YouTube show Marlon Bolton, a pastor who’s also the vice mayor of Tamarac, claiming his church predicted the COVID-19 pandemic weeks before Chinese authorities even identified the novel coronavirus strain.

“We prophesied,” Bolton told as many as 20 congregants during a March 22 service at Praise Experience Church of North Lauderdale. “We prophesied about the stock market crashing. We even prophesied about the shortage of food in this season. Very accurate.”

….

During the service, Bolton said God told him to direct congregants to make “seed donations” to help the church’s finances during the pandemic.

“You can go ‘Hallelujah’ to Cash App,” the pastor said.

….

Seed donations refer to money that donors send a church in hopes they’ll reap what they sow. Televangelists have made millions from such donations.

Bolton asked church members to donate a minimum of $100 and as much as $317. The preacher said God showed him that seven plagues are “destined for our land.”

“If you give seed offerings, I believe you’ll be covered for these plagues,” Bolton said.

He added that being cash-strapped is no excuse for not donating. Saying you don’t have money when it’s right there in your bank account is “the plan of the enemy to thwart the purpose of God” and prevent people from being successful, Bolton claimed.

In other videos, Bolton has pushed products, such as a “covenant lotion” made with olive oil and “the most expensive oils from Israel.” The regular price for the products is $500, he told church members, but he offered it for a discounted $100.

“You tuck it in your purse, tuck it in your wallet,” Bolton says, “and when that jezebel comes after you, you open it and anoint yourself.”

Bolton is the pastor of Praise Experience World Outreach Church in North Lauderdale, Florida. Bolton, astoundingly, is also the vice mayor of Tamarac, Florida.
