“Thank God I was raped.” “Thank God my wife died.” “Thank God I have cancer.” “Thank God I had a miscarriage.” These are just a few cherries plucked from the many inspirational titles on the single most offensive website we have ever seen...
Thankgodi.com’s founders purport that people can’t get over their problems until they are able to “Thank God” for them. Here is an excerpt from the bio of the founder guy (we don’t even wanna type his name for fear he’ll appear in our mirror like Bloody Mary):
“As God would have it, John ended up consulting with many women who had experienced rape. One by one, he assisted them in becoming grateful, and he watched the tears of gratitude well in their eyes as each woman reached the point of saying, ‘Thank God I was raped.’”
Does this give you the heebie-jeebies as much as it does to us? Oh yeah, it’s also a pyramid scam. Even so, it still seems too insane to be anything other than a tasteless prank. Kinda like JT LeRoy times a bazillion (read one woman’s testimonial entitled “Thank God I Was Brutally Murdered” to see what we mean). Watch the video and tell us what you guys think: Elaborate internet hoax or for realsies? We’re crossing our fingers for hoax.
