Preacher Claims Alien Tried to Have Sex With Her in Wild TV Interview

Religious author Sharon Gilbert has claimed an "alien" visited her in the form of her husband and asked to have sex with her.

She discussed the encounter in detail while speaking on the Jim Bakker Show, a self-described Christian "prophetic Bible show."

A clip from the show of Gilbert's story was posted on Twitter by writer and Friendly Atheist contributor Hemant Mehta.

He posted the video with the caption: "End Times preacher Sharon Gilbert says that an alien imitated her husband, and then it tried to have sex with her.

"Then it claimed to be Xerxes, and then Jesus got involved, and then the alien turned out to be a reptile with a posse of gargoyles."

The video has been viewed over 2.6 million times, with many noting their disbelief in the replies.

Speaking on the show, Gilbert said: "After Derek and I got married this other Derek appears in our bed.

"The real Derek is lying down next to me, other Derek sits right up out of him. It startled me.

"I knew that was not Derek and so I asked this critter, who are you? Because he clearly wanted to have sexual relations.

"He said: 'I am your husband.' I said: 'Who are you?'

"He had the nerve to claim to be, Xerxes. Other Derek seriously wanted to invite me, to use my free will to do something that was going to pull me away from God."

Gilbert went into further detail about the role Jesus played in her defeating the "alien". She also noted that this "other Derek" was joined by other smaller creatures.

She continued: "This last time I knew he was really desperate and I asked him again 'who are you?.' He told me the same answer and I said 'I am not going with you.'

"This was an internal dialogue, finally I said I have had enough, in my mind.

"I reached up, I grabbed his face and I said: 'You are a liar and Jesus is real.' I pulled that face off and beneath it was a reptile.

"He had little creatures with him this time, he brought these little halfling creatures and they looked like, gargoyles and they were very reptilian as well. Beneath the face of Derek was a reptilian serpentine creature."

The hosts then moved the conversation on and it is not clear whether Gilbert meant this story metaphorically or literally.

Many viewers took to mocking Gilbert, with others questioning the validity of the story.

One Twitter user wrote: "It happens. Who among us hasn't pulled their husband's face off to find a horny reptilian?"

Another added: "This is a story a 7-year-old tells when you ask them why they're late for something.

"Also pick a lane, aliens or angels? Make up your mind dammit."

While another person wrote: "I hate it when that happens. It's hard enough to get a good night's sleep and then bloody Xerxes turns up followed by Jesus and reptilian aliens."

Newsweek has reached out to Gilbert for comment.
