Quote# 54768

A priest has died after trying to demonstrate how Jesus walked on water.

Evangelist preacher Franck Kabele, 35, told his congregation he could repeat the biblical miracle.

But he drowned after walking out to sea from a beach in the capital Libreville in Gabon, west Africa.

One eyewitness said: “He told churchgoers he’d had a revelation that if he had enough faith, he could walk on water like Jesus.

“He took his congregation to the beach saying he would walk across the Komo estuary, which takes 20 minutes by boat.

“He walked into the water, which soon passed over his head and he never came back.”

I guess he drowned because he wasn't a "real" Christian, right?

Old news, and I think a repeat, but still damn funny.

Is this a joke? I can't even get past the first sentence without laughing. It's a shame if he really died though.

If faith the size of a mustard seed can move a mountain, his must be like the size of a DNA strand.

he didn't notice it wasn't working before it went over his head, i think at about knee deep it would have been obvious

And the people who watched him die, still believe in gods and jesuses like they were real, just not real enough to save the poor fellow.

You gotta admire his faith, he never tried swimming. Just kept walking along the bottom, certain god would save him. I doubt the American fundies always ranting about how gods gonna come down and make things right and how he can cure diseases and other miracles would put it to this test.

He told churchgoers he’d had a revelation that if he had enough faith, he could walk on water like Jesus.

Evidently, even enough faith to end up fucking killing yourself isn't enough.

Did this guy not think when he was up to his waist that it would have been better to quit while he was behind?
