Right-wing columnist Selena Owens of WND has asserted that the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is a Satanic ritual.
Initially Owens thought the Ice Bucket Challenge was comical but from further investigation, she claims that she uncovered some sinister issues.
The man who started the Ice Bucket Challenge, 27-year-old Corey Griffin, drowned and Owens appears to conclude that there was a dark side to the incident.
Additionally, she accuses Oprah Winfrey for promoting Satanism through the Ice Bucket Challenge.
Before being doused in water, Winfrey said, “In the name of ALS and the Ice Bucket Challenge. …”
Owens goes on to say:
“Winfrey’s proclamation hit a nerve with me because Christians, myself included, routinely pray and make decrees “in the name of Jesus.”
“We specify whom we worship when we invoke prayer in Jesus’ name.
“However, because Oprah mistakenly believes the One True God is jealous of her, and the well-known fact that she denounces Jesus as the only way to God and basically considers herself to be a god, I found this statement to be very cultic in nature.
She has influence over millions, but what does she really believe? Get Josh McDowell’s expose ” God: A Dialogue on Truth and Oprah’s Spirituality”
“Fuentes also addresses the matter of pouring water over ones head and how that act directly correlates with water baptism and syncs the IBC with the sacred Christian deed of cleansing and purification, albeit, in a sacrilegious manner.
“She also delves into deep issues of rituals stemming from dark, cultic practices that encompass the IBC and which symbolically place America and Americans in a satanic ritual – with or without their knowledge.
“Satanic ritual? Yes. Rituals abound in “Christian” America.
“Whenever spectators watch singers like Beyonce, JayZ, Rihanna, Lady Gaga and especially Nicki Minaj, they are indoctrinated and involved with blatantly satanic rituals that stem from the deep abyss of the occult.
“Some of these very same artists have taken the ALS IBC. Gaga doesn’t utter a word as she baptizes herself, arrayed in a sexy black leotard, sporting black lips, perched in an ornate black chair.
“Gaga doesn’t use a bucket; she instead uses a large silver bowl associated with pagan worship.
“Do you think she would take the IBC if it didn’t meet her pagan criteria? Not a chance.
“The ALS IBC is ritualistic in nature. People are chosen to undergo a form of water baptism with cultic god Oprah leading the charge “in the name of ALS.” The Bible is clear: “You shall have no other gods before me” (Exodus 20:3).
“Oprah is a god to millions of Americans, and those who follow her doctrine and antics have tossed Jesus off the throne of their hearts – perhaps not intentionally … or perhaps so.
“Yet by following her seemingly innocent IBC decree, knowingly or not, they have cast Jesus off symbolically.”
