TikTok preacher Sister Cindy revisits Iowa state to spread anti-sex messages | News


With more than 340,000 followers on TikTok, Cindy Smock, better known as Sister Cindy, gathered a crowd of around 400 students, to whom she preached on Thursday on how to become a “Ho No Mo” at the parks library exterior.

According to previous Daily reports, Sister Cindy is associated with Campus Ministry USA, a group led by her husband George Edward Smock, also known as “Brother Jed.” Together they form a group of evangelists who travel the country preaching to students.

Sister Cindy was accompanied by Vijay Pisini and three other associates who chose not to release their names.

“Our mission is to call students to repentance and faith in Jesus Christ,” Cindy said.

When asked to define her catchphrase “Ho No Mo,” which is short for “hoe no more,” Cindy said it was meant to refer to any type of sex outside of marriage. She quoted the Bible and said the Bible refers to it as “being a harlot or a whore”.

Sandra Marcu, director of the Margaret Sloss Center for Women and Gender Equity, said it is disappointing that Sister Cindy has a platform when it comes to the size of the crowd she has drawn.

Marcu spoke about the dangers of platforming rhetoric like Cindy’s. She said treating posts like Sister Cindy’s Slut Shaming Show as if it were a comedy show fuels the narrative that slut-shaming is okay, which Marcu vehemently denies.

“It feeds into this narrative that it’s okay to shame people, it’s okay to make homophobic remarks; that it’s all in the realm of comedy or fun, when it really isn’t,” Marcu said.

When asked if bitch shaming was okay, Cindy replied, “Yeah. Guilt is good. Guilt leads to repentance and faith, but you must cleanse your guilt.

“I’m all about free speech on campus and I think it’s healthy to have dialogue, but I think it’s unfortunate that someone spouting out such hateful rhetoric gets so much backing. applause and platform,” Marcu said.

Sylas Walker, a freshman majoring in computer engineering, disagreed with Cindy’s post.

“I don’t think it’s okay to publicly shame bitches and then draw a massive audience out of them,” Walker said. “I’m here and a whole bunch of other people are here just to give her the rudeness she returns.”

Walker said Iowa State endorses Cindy’s message of shaming by having her on campus. He said the university has a responsibility to control “extreme radical views” and that it is not acceptable for Cindy to shame sluts on campus.

Vijay Pisini took over the preaching from Sister Cindy while she was having lunch.

As Pisini began to preach, the surrounding crowd became more rowdy, culminating in Pisini asking a student who had lost his mother if she had known he was stupid.

The comment was made in response to a student in the crowd who asked Pisini if ​​he preferred “ass or boobs”. Pisini said his comment was made to illustrate that giving a right answer to a wrong question is always wrong.

Pisini said he didn’t mean the comment personally, and was purely meant to illustrate his point, sharing his grief for the student’s deceased mother, as well as the fact that he had lost his.

Reverend Jennifer Hibben, director of Vine Campus Ministry, was seen near Sister Cindy’s protest holding a sign with “no” quoted by God on one side and the words “you are all beautiful” on the other side.

Sister Cindy visited Iowa State on September 23. In addition to her usual show, she offered autographs and selfies to the students in attendance.

The Vine is an organization that seeks to be a place of worship, learning, and fellowship among students and other members of the Collegiate Presbyterian Church, according to the Iowa State Student Organization website.

“There’s a religious presence here on campus that wouldn’t support this type of horrible and harmful anti-Christian rhetoric,” Hibben said.
