Dutch satirical website Goedgelovig.nl played a little parody on Joel News. In our Dutch edition we published a story of a lady who prayed for her dog who was incurably ill, and the dog got healed. Goedgelovig.nl picked it up and asked when the stories would start pouring in of the miraculous healing of rabbits, parrots and other domestic animals. And would Dutch healing evangelist Jan Zijlstra soon start a prayer campaign for animals? Quite funny. Interestingly, praying for sick animals seems to be a quite normal practice for many Christians. We have testimonies pouring in daily.
I've been following Goedgelovig.nl for some time now, and think they're quite on top of the ball with their satirical view on developments in the Christian subculture. A few weeks ago they started a photo cartoon series titled 'Knevel & Van den Brink', starring the two best-known Christian television journalists, ascribing them dry tongue-in-cheek and sometimes quite absurd quotes. In the one below Andries says: "Breaking news: Dr. James Kennedy passed away." And Tijs comments: "He died in an evangelism explosion." Then, because in their real show they also had five female side-kicks, one of them, a Musllim lady called Esmaa makes a very polically uncorrect remark: "That sounds familiar. I didn't know Christians also did that stuff."
