Holy Spirit Enters Baby, Ends Up on YouTube

Look, the last time we had a good time at church, our parents were having us baptized. And sure, maybe we went to a Catholic high school, but there was nothing holy about it. There were alcoholics, potheads, sexual deviants -- and that was just the faculty -- so needless to say, our views on organized religion and the ideal Christian are mad skewed.

Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

We turned down the Holy Ghost, opted for good karma, and focused on being great people rather than Christ crusaders. We subsequently earned liberal arts degrees at college. Figures. But maybe we would have loved Jesus a little harder if we had kick-ass Christian Rock to bliss out to. Check out the below video to see the Holy Spirit move this toddler into a funky, transcendental state. Yeah, we shivered too.

At the 15-second mark, bible baby shoots her parents (presumably) a glance as if to say: "Are you done filming this stupid YouTube video yet? I'm tired of being exploited and balancing myself on this cushioned chair. My tiny right arm feels like it's going to fall off. Dammit mom and dad, listen to me and stop speaking in tongues!" 

The power of Christ compels you. THE POWER OF CHRIST COMPELS YOU! Happy Halloween, y'all.

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
