Elder abuse by Christian clowns?

In which Christian “clowns” are being trained to invade a nursing home to “entertain” the unfortunate residents trapped within.

Money quote: “If people are in need of touch, you touch them.”

Coming from clowns, that just sounds a bit creepy to me.

Or maybe, “Clowns can look a bit intimidating if you see a lot of them in one place.” (Substitute “creepy” for “intimidating.”)

See for yourself:

Worse, there’s a Part 2, in which the clowns invade the personal rooms of the elderly nursing home residents and then use the residents in wheelchair races:

This stuff could scare the crap out of demented patients.

For me, I can’t help but think of the clowns from this movie, whose theme song is featured in this video:

By Orac

Orac is the nom de blog of a humble surgeon/scientist who has an ego just big enough to delude himself that someone, somewhere might actually give a rodent's posterior about his copious verbal meanderings, but just barely small enough to admit to himself that few probably will. That surgeon is otherwise known as David Gorski.

That this particular surgeon has chosen his nom de blog based on a rather cranky and arrogant computer shaped like a clear box of blinking lights that he originally encountered when he became a fan of a 35 year old British SF television show whose special effects were renowned for their BBC/Doctor Who-style low budget look, but whose stories nonetheless resulted in some of the best, most innovative science fiction ever televised, should tell you nearly all that you need to know about Orac. (That, and the length of the preceding sentence.)

DISCLAIMER:: The various written meanderings here are the opinions of Orac and Orac alone, written on his own time. They should never be construed as representing the opinions of any other person or entity, especially Orac's cancer center, department of surgery, medical school, or university. Also note that Orac is nonpartisan; he is more than willing to criticize the statements of anyone, regardless of of political leanings, if that anyone advocates pseudoscience or quackery. Finally, medical commentary is not to be construed in any way as medical advice.
