Minister Can't Renounce His Love of Bling-Bling
My fabulous new facebook (for now though I plan to meet her in the summer!) friend in PR sent me a link to this fundamentalist propaganda film that claims that a church in the middle of nowhere in PR is the recipient of miraculous golden showers of jewels. The pastor, a former drag queen and homosexual who has renounced his "sin," alleges that since he took over the ministry, precious gems fall from the sky and appear in the humble place of worship. Clearly, Miss Thing cannot quite let go of her love of bling bling (el amol pol el blinblineo es muy fuelte) and also, this dovetails nicely with Boricuas' fascination with their Island's "specialness" and "supernaturalness."
