An online writer has deemed the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge a satanic ritual which has consumed Americans. Selena Owens could not understand the concept of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge nor the reason anyone would willingly dump a bucket of ice water on themselves. In efforts of understanding the whole phenomenon the writer said she began to research the challenge in hopes of making sense of it. After her investigation she determined the Ice Bucket Challenge is not just a lighthearted attempt to understand a debilitating disease; unbeknownst to many participants it is actually a satanic ritual.
Owens said she feels like there are other ways to bring attention to ALS, more commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, that are not as extreme or sensationalized as a bucket of water such as educating people. The intriguing aspect of the challenge, according to Owens, was the way social media became saturated with videos of celebrities, athletes, politicians and a host of others around the globe.
The writer said she starting thinking about the challenge and wanted to know whose idea it was and why people were so eager to participate. For those who chose to participate, Owens wanted to know why they felt obligated to call out others and why they would even agree to be drenched in ice-cold water in the first place.
Owens explained the evidence that disturbed her most, and best supported her theory that this is really a satanic ritual, is the story behind Corey Griffin’s death. Griffin, who co-founded the challenge, died last month after he jumped from a building and drowned. Owens said he then floated to the surface, sank and did not resurface. Not only was she confused why he would take such a risk, but what would possess him to do so in the middle of the night? She also thought it was strange that this tragedy took place the same night he helped raise $100,000 for ALS research.
The writer’s continued research led her to a video “exposing” a number of cultic and cryptic messages hidden in the Ice Bucket Challenge ritual. On the video a “self-described” evangelist named Anita Fuentes says the ritual is supposedly cleansing America in the name of the Anti-Christ Lucifer Satan for a future occurrence.
One of the reasons Fuentes suggests this popular fad is a satanic ritual is relative to Oprah Winfrey’s rendition of the challenge. Oprah, who the writer references as the cultic queen of talk, proclaims the words, “In the name of ALS and the Ice Bucket Challenge” prior to receiving the down pour of ice-cold water. This was disturbing to the writer and evangelist because Christians pray and make declarations “in the name of Jesus” and since Oprah allegedly considers herself a god, the use of those words seemed to be very cultic in nature.
Fuentes goes on to explain pouring water over ones head is a direct correlation with water baptism and in turn alludes to the sacred Christian act of purification and cleansing. The “self-proclaimed” evangelist states rituals are cultic practices which stem from dark places and has somehow concluded that partakers of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge have become part of the satanic ALS ritual – whether they know it or not. Owens summarizes her belief as follows:
The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is ritualistic in nature. People are chosen to undergo a form of water baptism with cultic god Oprah leading the charge ‘in the name of ALS.’ The Bible is clear in Exodus 20:3 when it states ‘You shall have no other gods before me.’ Oprah is a god to millions of Americans, and those who follow her doctrine and antics have tossed Jesus off the throne of their hearts – perhaps not intentionally – or perhaps so. Yet by following her seemingly innocent Ice Bucket Challenge decree, knowingly or not, they have symbolically cast Jesus off.
The question on whether or not the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is a satanic ritual can only be answered on an individual basis, and the answer would ultimately be determined by the person’s belief system. What has clearly been identified by this phenomenon is a great deal of money has been raised due to people coming together for a common goal in hopes of furthering research efforts into the debilitating disease known as ALS. For those efforts, “Job well done!”
