North Miami mayor candidate flyer: Jesus Christ endorses me.

@MarcACaputoJesus

UPDATE** A North Miami mayor candidate who has previously said she was a victim of Vodou sorcery is says she's endorsed by none other than Jesus Christ.

"Anna Pierre, RN is endorsed by Jesus Christ," says a campaign-style flyer on her Facebook page, which says she'll advocate for "FREE healthcare" and social service programs for the elderly.

Reached on Monday, Pierre said Jesus came to her in a dream.

“I had a revelation when I was going to give up on this race. I had a dream, I know what I saw,” she said. “A figure I can’t explain told me, ‘Don’t be afraid, I am your friend. I am walking with you side by side. You are not alone.’ I felt it was from heaven. It was an endorsement by Jesus.”

Hat tip to Random Pixels who noticed the website first; here's our story.

Pierre also says she'll fight corruption.

So does another candidate, Joseph Haber, who's passing out campaign soap bars with the slogan "Let's Clean Up City Hall!"

Too bad no one's passing out campaign-style bandages. Last week, mayoral candidate Blaise Felix was arrested for allegedly punching Councilman Jean Marcellus in the mouth.

In the wake of that, Pierre's touting of the Lord of Love's' endorsement comes just in time.

PierreLast month, The Herald's Nadege C. Green reported that Pierre said unknown persons left chicken feathers, food scraps and candles at her office doorstep over the past three months. She believes the items are tied to mystical rituals in the Haitian Vodou religion.

“I found little dolls with needles in it. They put a lot of pennies at front of my office door,” she said. “I’m from Haiti I know what it is.”

Pierre, a nurse and singer, said her popularity in the Haitian community is a threat to whoever is trying to curse her. Pierre is well-known for her 1990s Creole-language hit “ Suk Su Bon Bon.” In the song, she demands that her husband put sugar on her “cookie” or else she will leave him.

She said the threats are not just of the spiritual nature.

Pierre said an anonymous person has been using a blocked number to call her phone. The voice on the other line told her to drop out of the race.

“I have people in Haiti, Canada, and the U.S. praying for me,” she said. “I have Jesus with me.”

As long as she can actual evidence of Jesus Christ endorsing her, it's not real, like a lot of the claims done in His name by Christians. It may sound funny, but false prophets are just as bad as voo doo dolls according to scripture.

Since when is Blaise Felix a mayoral candidate? Jean Marcellus is a council and mayoral candidate. Blaise is neither. Please fix. The story is rich enough

What is up with voters in some of these districts... will they be smart enough to put their foot down and reject dumb crap like this?

Jesus may not actually exist, but if He does, He's got to be tired of nincompoops like this taking His name in vain for their less than heavenly purposes. Optimally, Jesus should get off His Holy Duff and come back among us losers, fix all these ills and shut all these sad wannabes up. Here's a song about that.

Not free healthcare for all. Free healthcare for the elderly. If the tax payers have to pay an extra tax everyone should be eligible for it. Like the medicare/medicaid system taxing people for something a majority is not eligble for is wrong. Because nothing in this world is free. Not many christians even follow the basic tenants of christianity. Which is love everyone, especially your enemies. Forgive everyone, especially your enemies. Forgive others for the things that make you mad, because God forgives you, for the things you do that make him mad. Help others when they need help, because we all are in the same family.
