Sign in Tongues

for the ecstatically religious, hearing and speech challenged
  [vote for,

An international sign language has been developed to aid the deaf and dumb, to communicate utterances when "speaking" in tongues.

For example, the ecstatic speech phrase "a shambala ala shundula" is signed by a left-hand, high-five and one-handed thumb twiddle plus a hitch-hike, right thumb, followed by an open-the-(church)doors-and-see-all-the-people, then a double-handed, knocker squeeze, to be concluded with the Travolta, double, sideways, victory swipe.

       Wouldn't hand jiving achieve the same effect?

       I thought this was an idea for a tongue scanner to biometrically identify users and log them in to their computer networks.

       I wonder if a person signing in tongues would look like they were having an epileptic fit?
