Gus Lominnowski, 52 of 121 Lighthouse View Road was healed of congenital blindness last Thursday by Jesus Christ. At least, that is his confession. Jesus Christ, 33 of Nazareth, Israel is currently wanted for questioning by authorities in reference to charges of practicing medicine without a license.
The tragedy of disability
The story of Gus Lominnowski is tragic in that he has been blind since birth and has lived his entire life in darkness. His parents took him to doctors when he was a child, but there was nothing they could do for him. CAT scans revealed that his optic nerves were never properly formed and his primary visual cortex was not functioning for vision. Doctors said he would never be able to see.
After numerous medical expenses and expenses for therapeutic devices and interventions, Lominnowski was abandoned by the public social welfare agencies and left to fend for himself with his destitute parents. He sat in front of the rear entrance of Kress’s Department Store all day, every day selling pencils to passers by. Many people would cross the street to avoid contact with him. Others would make fun of him and abuse him verbally.
It was on one such ordinary day that Jesus Christ came to him there.
According to Lominnowski, Jesus began talking to him. Lominnowski asked if he wanted to buy a pencil. “Do you know why you are blind?” Jesus asked.
“I have always been blind.” responded Lominnowski, “Although I don’t understand why.”
Someone nearby suggested that Lominnowski was genetically damaged when his parents took illegal recreational drugs. Jesus said, “It is not about cause and effect, but about the purpose of God.”
Then Jesus said, “For judgement came I into the world. That the blind might see and those who say they can see may be made blind.” Then he touched his eyes and gave him a bottle of eye drops with instructions.
Transcripts from interviews were released following a joint investigation by the FBI and AMA. There were two likely conclusions to be drawn from these. Either Mr. Lominnowski is a fraud who was never blind or the man who gave him the eye drops was testing an experimental new gene therapy without sanction by the Board of Health. A minority disagreed with these conclusions and said it might just be that Jesus Christ did perform a miracle of healing on the man.
Follows some excerpts.
Q: “Are you Gus Lominnowski?”
Q: “Were you blind from birth?”
Q: “How did you regain your sight?”
L: “A man called Jesus gave me some eye drops and instructed me to apply a few drops once every day until the bottle was empty. That is what I did and now I see.”
Q: “What was in the eye drops bottle?”
L: “I don’t know. You tell me. You must have had it analyzed.”
Q: “By the time we retrieved the evidence, it only contained saline solution. But who is this Jesus Christ who gave you the bottle?”
L: “He must be a prophet of God Almighty.”
Q: “Remember you are still under oath. If you persist in this line of testimony we will have no choice but to withdraw your health benefit insurance and exclude you from any further medical treatment. Where is this Jesus now?”
L: “I don’t know. He came to me at my home a few days later and asked if I believe in the Son of Man. I said, ‘Who is this Son of Man?’ He said, “I AM!” So I said, ‘I believe.’ That is the last I saw him.”
Q: “But who is this Jesus, Son of Man?”
L: “I have already told you and you wouldn’t listen. Do you also want to worship him?”
Q: “You are just an ignorant, uneducated nobody and you presume to instruct us? We have some of the greatest minds from the most prestigious universities on this investigation.”
L: “I find that most distressing. With all your accumulated knowledge, you see with your own eyes that I was miraculously healed of congenital blindness and this has never been done since records were kept, yet you still refuse to believe it was a miracle of God.”
The interview was abruptly terminated. No charges were brought against Lominnowski. Pending apprehension of the suspect, Jesus Christ, this investigation has been suspended and no further legal action was taken.
