One of my friends used to be a hardcore Christian
. She was involved in a Pentacostal
-like church - the whole speaking in tongues
. She actually led some of the prayer meetings. I was talking to her after she had tried ectasy
for the first time and curious, I naturally asked her what it was like.
She paused and said, "It was like leading the revivals again."
I couldn't sleep last night so I decided to just forge on through the day with some help. Bored, I flipped through the glass nipple until I stopped, struck by a stage full of people undergoing seizures. A man with silver preacher hair spoke of God and then reached out and touched the two men his security guards had just picked out of the audience - they fell back as soon as the preacher made contact and convulsed on the floor. Even the preacher was taken aback by the responses on stage. This continued for a while and the struck twitched for a long time.
God is a drug.
