Even if it didn’t happen and the lady is delusional least she’s happy, don’t rob her of her joy just for the sake of trying to embarrass a church you don’t like.

Nope. They're parasites in Christianity. The lady gives off more peeked in high school energy.

So the solution is to bother and pressure the lady to show her toes to the internet? It would be like if you got a huge raise at work and people made a website and harassed you to tell them what you make now.

No it isn't. Someone getting a huge raise at work is not considered a religious miracle. Someone claiming their deity heard their fervent prayers and regrew bones, muscle, tendons, skin, nails in a species that is proven to not have the ability to spontaneously regenerate those things . . . welp, that requires proof.

Some would argue otherwise. Besides why do you care so much? Why is it so important to people to find out the "truth"? Does it make you feel better? What happens if its true?

What happens if it’s true? Seriously? Id be jumping aboard to have them heal me and everyone I know of all illnesses before this entire area is swarmed by people coming from all over the world to have their loved ones cured of illness. Meanwhile you better believe big Pharma is going to be putting hits out to kill off all of these magic healers at JR before they pass the gospel on to other folks and we’re surrounded by magic healers.

Some would argue otherwise? Not many would argue

Why is it important? If miracles like this are possible, this world would be a much better place without health insurance.

If it turned unbelievers of the miracle to believers then yes there would be quite the uproar, trouble is the faithless and unbelievers will continue to not believe it’s true. That’s the way it’s always been really. Let’s say they came out Sunday with pictures of this lady’s feet with new toes would you believe (assuming you don’t believe it’s true)? I would venture to guess most unbelievers still wouldn’t believe it citing some excuse. Even if they got side by side pics and a doctors note I doubt most people here and in the media would become believers.

Oh so people can just claim any ridiculous thing as long as it “makes them happy”?


booradly t1_jdcj7xj wrote

Why do you care so much? People claim ridiculous things everyday why is this different?


hardisonthefloor t1_jdcpgdk wrote

You’re correct, people claim ridiculous shit every day, and I will ABSOLUTELY call them out on it as well.


booradly t1_jdcpyd5 wrote

Maybe its not so rediculous for her, maybe her life has been so shitty lately that this is the thing that brings her out of her funk. Even if its false, what if this was the thing that flipped her life around, is it so ridiculous then?


hardisonthefloor t1_jdcqhuf wrote

Yes it is 100% still ridiculous. If lying about growing new toes is what it takes to get you out of your funk, you have serious fucking mental issues.

According to the news the toes were lost as a result of her estranged husband shooting her three times, leaving her pretty badly wounded and killing her friend. I suppose that sort of trauma could lead to some significant mental issues. And I'm no psychologist, but I'm also supposing that if you could convince yourself some aspect of that trauma had been healed for you, that might go a long way in aiding your mental well being. I'm not inclined to believe that the toes actually grew back, no. And yes, I understand the frustration at the church using this to further itself among sometimes gullible parishioners. But at the end of the day I guess I fall into the camp of people who just don't really care that much because I've got my own things going. If she wishes to dance a pirouette to show she's recovering from and regaining control of what does appear to have been a shitty time in her life, I'm not interested in robbing her of that. It's no crazier than things we all heard in church every week growing up.


booradly t1_jdd8lcq wrote

Thats my thoughts, I honestly feel bad for the lady mostly because now half the news networks in the area are going to be hounding her until she responds not to mention the individuals harassing her. Just leave her alone and let her be happy why do you all care so much honestly.

If you don't want this don't lie and make ridclious claims.
