Holy Knockout! Woman Injured (Indirectly) by The Spirit Sues Church

These folks were "slain in the spirit." Let's hope nobody got hurt...
A year ago, Cheryl Jones was attending a service at Disciple Fellowship Christian Church in East St. Louis when she and other congregants rushed to form a line and "receive the spirit" from the pastor.

According the complaint Jones filed two weeks ago in Madison County, Illinois, the pastor was laying hands on the faithful. The faithful would then "receive the spirit," and start to collapse. Ushers would catch them.

Except when they didn't.

One lady received the spirit, Jones says, then fell into other worshipers, who fell into Jones.

As told in The Record of Madison County:
Jones claims she fell to the ground and that several people fell on top of her. She says she lost consciousness during the incident. She says she received serious injuries to her head, neck and back in the fall.
Jones is suing the church for negligence, asking for more than $50,000 for medical bills and court costs.

Might need a healin' to correct the last healin'.

Think this could be a nosocomial healer?

And, to quote a friend of mine, "I thought to myself, if that's the Holy Ghost, I don't want it gettin' in *me*!"

Maybe if they just pray harder she won't have a need for medical bills.

Her inability to be mini-raptured by the spirit of the Holy Ghost, is most likely due to her coveting harlotic thoughts or subliminal lesbian ways. Clearly her own fault for her own impurities. Since this took place in East St. Louis (Gods' holding pen for Hams' children) , we can assume she is a Negress, therefore she should have had a posterior as large as Oprahs' to cushion her fall.  How is it the pastors fault if she doesn't eat enough Churchs chicken and free cheese to enlarge her assets?In our church, our preacher has a special way of dropping those imbibed by the Spirit onto a special mat of bubble rap. The crackling pop of the plastic lands joyful cadence to our tongue talk. Praise !! and skibba malajandt ah holla mea didit paloanbs tunjnst untalice anja alobe keepa ....... .......

If she really believes all that religious crap she got what she deserved.  Why didn't she sue the pastor for sexual harrassment as well since he laid his hands on her!! "Nice double D's lady," said the pastor.

Forgive her, Lord, for she knows not who she sues.
