There is No Place for White Evangelicals in Our Secular Postmodern Democracy

New Year’s Eve is a time for reflection and contemplation, a time to look back on all the horrendous events that took place this year, and a time to look forward to what steps we can take to make the new year better.

This isn’t my annual New Year’s Resolutions essay, the state of our democracy is in such dire straits that we must not focus on improving our lives, but on saving our republic.

I’m persuaded that with increasing vaccination rates, and due diligence with mitigation efforts we will eventually defeat the coronavirus.

But there’s a virus that’s more virulent, contagious and poses an even more existential threat to our country than the omicron variant.

White evangelical Christianity is a cancer that has metastasized and put democracy on its deathbed. Evangelicals have traded a compassionate and loving Jesus who preached about the Kingdom of Heaven for an inhumane and vicious orange messiah who’s trying to establish a white Christian nationalist theocracy.

Today’s white evangelical Christians put the Crusaders of old to shame, they hate Muslims and other religious and racial minorities with a passion and they are determined to reinstate their Savior by any means necessary: military coup, intimidation of election officials, undermining of the courts …

We must fight evangelicals with the same vigor and determination that we have exercised in our war with the virus. I’m not advocating for the literal extermination of white evangelicals, although the world would be better off without them. We must fight their racism, ignorance, anti-science stance, intolerance and anti-Christian philosophy with by exposing them with the truth. There is no place for evangelicals in our postmodern secular society.

Donald Trump Jr. Articulates the Nihilism of White Evangelical Christianity

“If we get together, they cannot cancel us all. Okay? They won’t. And this will be contrary to a lot of our beliefs because—I’d love not to have to participate in cancel culture. I’d love that it didn’t exist. But as long as it does, folks, we better be playing the same game. Okay? We’ve been playing T-ball for half a century while they’re playing hardball and cheating. Right? We’ve turned the other cheek, and I understand, sort of, the biblical reference—I understand the mentality—but it’s gotten us nothing. Okay? It’s gotten us nothing while we’ve ceded ground in every major institution in our country.”

Donald Trump Jr.

In an address to the far-right Turning Point USA conference on December 19, Donald Trump Jr. spelled out in simple and stark terms the new Gospel of white evangelicals.

Evangelicals overwhelmingly voted for Trump in 2016 and 2020 despite the fact that his behavior and political philosophy are the antithesis of the teachings of the peaceful, loving and compassionate Jesus Christ.

Evangelicals faithfully supported Trump precisely because he was rude, boastful, arrogant and vengeful; finally they had a champion who owned the libs and sought to make America Great Again for white nationalists by any means necessary.

Junior articulated the New Gospel: stop playing by the rules, reject the “turn the other cheek” mentality and crush their enemies without mercy.

I have been warning my readers for years that evangelicals aren’t true Christians. Thank you, Donald Trump Jr., for making my point.

Texas Educator Calls Evangelicals ‘Kooks’ Who Hate Reading

Some parents in Austin, Texas have their panties in a twist over books they claim contain pornographic content in their schools.

In truth, these religious bigots consider any book that affirms the dignity of the LGBTQ community pornographic. If they were really serious about blocking access to pornography, they would take the time to learn how to set parental controls on their children’s phones and other electronic devices. Although, truth be told, that’s a losing battle, children’s curiosity will always win out over their parents’ feeble attempts to restrict pornographic content.

In response, a teacher, Krista Tyler, mocked them as anti-reading bigots at a school board meeting by reading a Dr. Seuss-style poem:

“Everyone in Leander liked reading a lot, but some evangelicals in Leander did not. These kooks hated reading, the whole reading season. Please don’t ask why, no one quite knows the reason.  It could be perhaps critical thinking causes fright.  It could be their heads aren’t screwed on just right. But whatever the reason, their brains or their fright, they can’t follow policy in plain black and white.”

It’s patently true that evangelicals hate reading, especially books that depicts a reality that exposes the unscientific basis of many of their cherished myths and fables.

By the way, they also hate reading the Bible, the average evangelical is unaware that it endorses slavery and genocide.

In their churches evangelicals can ban any reading material they don’t fancy, and exalt the Bible few of them have read from cover to cover. But in public schools children should be exposed to science and history textbooks and great books of literature that may be anathema to their parents.

Trump Supporters Candace Owens & Alex Jones Rail Against Him for Being Vaccinated & Boosted

Donald Trump revealed that he had received a COVID booster shot during a live appearance in Dallas with former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly who pointed out that both men were vaccinated.

When O’Reilly asked Trump if he has received his booster, the disgraced former president responded, “Yes” – and was booed.

The Trump/O’Reilly tour has been a major disappointment, only the most faithful Trump supporters have bought tickets. O’Reilly is a washed-out conservative pundit without a major platform, Trump touring with him is like Kiss touring with a 2nd-rate tribute band. What I’m trying to emphasize is that only the most diehard Trump fans were present at the Dallas event, and they booed their Messiah when he revealed he was vaccinated and boosted.  

The day after the Dallas event Trump told conservative talk show host Candace Owens: “If you take the vaccine, you’re protected. The results of the vaccine are very good. If you do get COVID-19, it’s a very minor form. People aren’t dying when they take the vaccine.”

Owens explained to her followers on Instagram that Trump is too old to know how to navigate the internet and do the research and find the obscure websites that prove that COVID vaccines are dangerous.

Another fervent Trump supporter, Alex Jones issues an “Emergency Christmas Day Warning” to Trump:

“You are either completely ignorant or you are one of the most evil men who has ever lived … What you told Candace Owens is nothing but a raft of dirty lies.”

Although Trump was addicted to social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook before he was banned by them, he doesn’t have the inclination or the expertise to go down the cyber rabbit hole in search of lunatic conspiracy theories about vaccines.

Trump is too old: Too old to be president! Too senile and too old to be taken seriously on any subject. But he is right about the vaccines, and when his cult members turn a deaf ear to his exhortations to get vaccinated, you know that it’s a lost cause trying to encourage them to get vaccinated.

Joe Biden Says He Will Run for Reelection, if He’s in ‘Good Health’

In an interview with ABC News Wednesday President Joe Biden said he would run for re-election if he was “in good health.”

“If I’m in the health I’m in now – I’m in good health – then, in fact, I would run again,” Biden said.

Joe Biden is 79-years-old and if ran for reelection in 2024 he would be 82 on inauguration day.

Biden claims to be “in good health” but he’s demonstrably in poor health, physically and mentally. He walks gingerly as if bracing for a fall should his legs give out on him. If he didn’t have a retinue of Secret Service Agents trailing him day and night, he wouldn’t be allowed to leave the front door without a medical alert bracelet. He’s not a spring chicken, if he gave up the ghost his remains would be so calcified, they would be rejected as McDonald’s chicken nuggets.

You don’t have to be a physician to deduce that Biden has lost a couple of steps physically speaking, and you don’t have to be a psychiatrist to notice that he’s lost more than a couple of steps speaking in cognitive terms.

Is there a respected Democrat leader with the courage and good conscience to counsel Biden privately that he’s too old to be president? The fact that he’s considering running for reelection is proof that he’s suffering from narcissism, white privilege and dementia.

If Biden doesn’t do the right thing and promise not to run for reelection, Democrats with presidential aspirations should start their presidential campaigns today. Running for president is a years-long endeavor, and there’s no time to waste.

Wheel of Fortune Fans Outraged When Contestant Loses Audi Over a Technicality

On Wheel of Fortune a contestant missed out on winning an Audi over a technicality.

While solving a puzzle under the “What Are You Doing?” category, Charlene Rubush correctly guessed “Choosing the right word” before the buzzer sounded.

Geriatric host Pat Sajak delivered the devastating verdict:

“You know, this one’s tough, because you said all the right words, including the word ‘word’ but, as you know, it’s gotta be more or less continuous. We’ll allow for a little pause but not four or five seconds. I’m sorry.

Sajak or the producer who whispered in his ears is anal-retentive. And that’s the right word, not “picky” or “persnickety.” Anal-retentive! Or to use street vernacular: full of shit.

Once again, I remind my readers that Rubush solved the puzzle within the allotted time, but because she first guessed “Choosing the right card”, and because she hesitated a few seconds before saying the right word, she was robbed of the new car.

We watch game shows like “Wheel of Fortune” to momentarily distract us from the pandemic, inflation and the imminent zombie apocalypse. We enjoy watching regular folks win prizes when they have the intelligence and presence of mind to solve word puzzles.

We don’t need to be reminded that the world is a horrible place by witnessing a contestant who answered a puzzle robbed of a prize over a technicality.

Bidens Welcome ‘Commander’ a New Puppy to the White House

I pay very little attention to the comings and goings in the White House, staffers are bureaucrats and political hacks and indistinguishable from one another.

But the arrival of a new puppy at 100 Pennsylvania Avenue – just in time for Christmas is the best news in the world of politics this year.

The Biden family has welcomed a new German Shepherd, “Commander,” the president announced in a tweet on Monday.

At the same time the White House announced the sad news that Major, the first shelter dog to live in the White House, would be leaving to live with family friends following several biting incidents involving White House staff this year.

Can’t say that I blame Major, if I lived in a high-stress environment infested with politicians I would also have reacted in a similar manner.

More good news: A cat will join the First Family in January. Nothing humanizes human beings more than pets, the Bidens should consider adopting a hamster and a rabbit as well.

White Evangelicals Have Traded Surfer Dude Jesus for Morbidly Obese Trump Jesus

A Google search of “Jesus” will pull up a plethora of images depicting a tall, white guy with long, blond hair and a beard. But the blond surfer dude Jesus is historically and ethnically incorrect.

In New Testament times men in Judea tended to have brown eyes, black hair and olive-brown skin. According to skeletal remains from that era the average male was about five foot five inches.

If Jesus returned claiming to be the King of Heaven and Earth, white evangelicals would look askance at the short brown fellow, and reply:

King of Heaven and Earth? Please! We doubt if you’re even in this country legally! Show us your green card!

White evangelicals will only accept a Jesus who is tall, white, blond handsome cisgender male.

Which makes it surprising that they have substituted this Adonis Jesus as their savior for a man who may be white, but’s who’s morbidly obese, hideously ugly and has doll hands and a tiny Ken doll penis.

I guess white evangelicals are comfortable worshipping the grotesque Trump as their messiah as long as he clings to his abhorrent beliefs: white supremacy, anti-immigration, anti-abortion …

Bret Hart ‘The Hitman’ Wants to Wrestle Donald Trump

Bret Hart retired in 2000, but he has wrestled a handful of matches since then. The Hitman wants to return to the WWE for a final match with Donald Trump with Vince McMahon serving as the referee.

I know what you’re thinking, the 64-year-old retired professional wrestler is just trying to regain the relevance he enjoyed decades ago as one of the WWE’s top attractions.

But I think a Hart vs. Trump wrestling match is within the realm of possibility. Let’s not forget that Trump is in the WWE Hall of Fame, having hosted WrestleMania IV and V in 1988 and 1989.

There is nothing real about professional wrestling, it’s 100% hokum and Trump could be persuaded that there’s zero chance that he’ll be injured if he engages in a wrestling match with Hart.

Every step in a WWE wrestling match is choreographed but the morbidly obese twice-impeached, disgraced former president could unduly exert himself and suffer a fatal heart attack.

It would be poetic justice if The Hitman unintentionally ended the sad and pathetic life of the steaming pile of excrement known as Donald Trump.

Mike Lindell and his Ilk Have Done More to Undermine the Evangelical Movement Than Any Atheist or Agnostic

“MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell told CNBC he is ready to go broke pushing the false claim that the election was stolen from Donald Trump while proclaiming that the election system needs extensive changes.

Lindell said he has spent $25 million of his own money since Election Day to fuel his campaign. And he plans to keep spending to continue his crusade going into the 2022 midterm elections.


Mike Lindell is an evangelical, and as such his primary focus should be to evangelize, i.e., spread the Good News that Jesus saves. You would expect him to use his national platform, his immense wealth and his time preaching the Gospel.

Instead, the Pillow huckster is prepared to go broke promulgating the Big Lie that his messiah, Donald Trump, won the election.

The legitimate cable news networks and the broadcast evening news programs are loathe to give him any air time to spread his false conspiracy theories, but he is willing to appear on any podcast, YouTube channel, and 3rd rate cable news network to spread the Gospel of his Orange Messiah.

Lindell spreads a litany of false conspiracy theories, but his main obsession is the Big Lie. It’s manifest that Joe Biden won in a popular vote and electoral college landside over Donald Trump. Only cultists who live in an alternate universe and immerse themselves in ultra-right web sites, TV news networks and podcasts believe in the Big Lie.

If Lindell and his fellow evangelicals are dead wrong when it comes to the Big Lie, then it’s only fair and prudent to question the validity of their core evangelical beliefs.

If they are wrong about the Big Lie, are they wrong about the Virgin Birth of Jesus Christ? His resurrection? The reliability of the Bible? Lindell and his ilk have done more to undermine the evangelical movement than any atheist or agnostic.

Joe Biden’s Senior Moments Aren’t Endearing, They’re Terrifying

The ghoulish scene of a 79-year-old Joe Biden eulogizing Bob Dole, who was 98 at death, wouldn’t be out-of-place in a typically depressing Swedish movie or in a horror flick, but it’s disconcerting in real life, to say the least.

The last few survivors of the Greatest Generation belong in a nursing home or in a Wal-Mart greeting customers, not in the White House.

Our septuagenarian, soon to be an octogenarian, president suffered another senior moment while speaking at the memorial service for the late Senator Bob Dole.

Biden read aloud instructions written on his script, saying “End of message.” It’s endearing when your grandpop has a senior moment, but when the Leader of the Free World and commander-in-chief has a senior moment it’s terrifying.

It may soon be “End of Message” for western civilization if our cognitively compromised president mistakes the red button on his desk for God knows what! I exaggerate of course, but it’s no exaggeration to say that Biden is too freaking old to be the President of the United States.

Donald Trump: ‘Fuck Netanyahu’

The twice-impeached disgraced former present Donald Trump in interviews published by Axios turned on his onetime ally, Benjamin Netanyahu, for congratulating Joe Biden once it became clear that the Democrat had won the 2020 election in a popular vote and electoral college landslide.

“Fuck him,” Trump was quoted as saying of his erstwhile friend. “The first person that congratulated Biden was Bibi Netanyahu, the man that I did more than any other person I dealt with.”

Trump is correct in stating that he bestowed on Netanyahu many political gifts including moving the embassy to Jerusalem and recognizing Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights. Trump treated Netanyahu kindly to curry favor with his evangelical base who are besotted with the nation of Israel.

But he’s wrong in declaring that Netanyahu was the first world leader to congratulate Biden on his victory. Many heads of state including Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron beat Netanyahu to the punch.

Many of Trump’s most loyal followers, white evangelicals, condemned his attack on the Israeli leader. Mike Evans, one of Trump’s early evangelical backers, said he was “horrified” by Trump’s outburst and said they would offend significant numbers of evangelical voters.

Keep in mind that evangelicals have stuck by their Dear Leader through sex scandals, tens of thousands of lies including the Big Lie that he won the election, vicious attacks on political enemies, and even his attempted coup.

But they draw the line at attacking the racist, indicted former Prime Minister of Israel. Israel can do no wrong in their eyes, and authoritarian leaders can do no wrong as long as they are pro-Israel and anti-abortion.

Fuck Netanyahu? Amen! Fuck Trump and white evangelicals as well.

It’s Time for the Fake ‘War on Christmas’

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, everywhere you go. There’s a Santa in every mall, and a tree in every hall. Salvation Army’s bells are ringing, and everybody is singing tiding of comfort and joy.

The greatest Christmas icon, and I’m not referring to Jesus or Santa, I’m talking about the Queen of Xmas herself, Mariah Carey is blaring from every radio.

But once again a discordant sound is heard: Republican evangelicals bleating about a “war on Christmas,” Talk about fake news, godless liberals aren’t burning down every Christmas tree they see and they aren’t cursing out anyone who wishing them a “Merry Christmas.”

The war on Christmas is yet another cultural issue created entirely out of whole cloth by televangelists who are experts at creating myths and fake stories like the Rapture, for example.

The faux war on Christmas is a money-raising grift for televangelists and Republican politicians. Every year, sure as clockwork, evangelicals scream that “Jesus is the Reason for the Season” while they go in debt buying gifts for friends, family, co-workers, most of whom they don’t even like.

And every year they proclaim that they beat back the godless liberals and once again saved Christmas. After all, it’s easy to declare victory when there isn’t a war.

Will an Online Sex Shop for Evangelicals Succeed?

“Andrea Dos Anjos opened her online store, Memorias da Clo, in 2019, offering Evangelical women a safe space to ask questions and seek advice on products designed for a part of life that remains taboo for many conservative Christians in Brazil.

The 43-year-old Baptist is based in Rio de Janeiro, but counsels her clients mainly via private messaging app.

Marques’s business, ConSensual, offers an online catalogue of ‘auxiliary products for relationships,’ such as erotic toys and flavored lubricants — all tactfully presented, steering well clear of the wilder side of the sex-toy trade.”


In America evangelicals are the biggest consumers of online pornography, they enjoy every genre of porn including girl-on-girl porn, bondage, gang rape and dozens of other sexual practices condemned by the Bible.  

Dos Anjos’ sex light online store doesn’t sell dildos, anal sex toys or sex dolls. “I don’t want clients to feel like they’re doing something wrong,” she says.

That’s not a good business model, evangelicals visit brothels, consume porn, and pick up hookers precisely because it’s a sin. Unbelievers will never experience the transcendent ecstasy achieved by indulging in sex acts you believe are morally wrong and condemned by the Bible.

Lubricants in flavors such as cotton candy and aphrodisiac perfumes are well and good, but if Dos Anjos really wants to make a killing she will sell vulgar sex merchandise like a giant dildo shaped like the mushroom shaped penis of our “orange Messiah, Donald Trump.”

But her online sex store is a good thing, anything that teaches evangelicals that sex is a fundamentally pure, natural and spiritual is a step in the right direction.

Despicable, Deplorable & Despised Hillary Clinton Teaching a MasterClass

The coin of the realm in America is fame, and once an entertainer, politician, athlete, televangelist, journalist, educator or (fill in the blank) has achieved even a modicum of celebrity it’s utterly impossible for him not to be able to live a comfortable existence for the rest of his life, regardless how badly his talents have diminished. Even a celebrity who commits murder or rapes a child is guaranteed a financially comfortable life for the remainder of his wretched existence.

In our digital age of dozens of streaming services, thousand and one cable networks, tens of thousands of satellite and earthly radio stations, millions of podcasts and billions of web sites, there are just too many revenue streams.

Every celeb worth his salt has a podcast, fans only page or a revenue-producing Instagram account. Even a D-List celebrity who enjoyed his 15 minutes of fame 15 years ago will always find work in a web series.

Celebrities who are filthy rich always find the time to endorse one more product and to make a cameo appearance in one more television show.

Which brings me to Hillary Clinton who’s made millions (billions?) after a lifetime in politics. Her government pensions, ghostwritten books, paid speeches and legal work made her filthy rich, yet she’s still trying to make a buck any way she can.  

Clinton is the latest celeb to offer a MasterClass, an American online education subscription platform on which students can access tutorials and lectures pre-recorded by experts in various fields. (Wikipedia) A MasterClass is just a glorified YouTube tutorial on your favorite subject.

She will begin teaching a new MasterClass on “the power of resilience.”  With all due respect, Fuck Hillary Clinton. She’s a corrupt elitist professional politician who thought she was entitled to be president of the United States, and she ran such an ineffectual campaign that she lost to the bumbling, stumbling circus clown, Donald Trump.

I don’t have shit to learn from the likes of Hillary about the power of resilience. When you have millions in the bank, you can always bounce back and force yourself back in the spotlight.

You lost to Donald Trump! Curse God and die, please!

The Rapture is a Goldmine for Evangelical Scam Artists

White evangelicals promulgate an eschatology that has been wrong for generations and they will continue to prophesy that the End Times is right around the corner until the World ends as a result of climate change, nuclear annihilation or an errant asteroid. Jesus has as much connection to the End Times as Megatron or Hella.

For over two thousand years Christians have been preaching that the return of Jesus is imminent. Tithe, attend church and convert the heathen, lest Jesus finds you slacking when he returns.

For centuries Christians have imagined the return of Christ as a triumphant event in which he returns to punish sinners and reward the saints.

The Rapture in which Jesus returns in the air to evacuate his sinners from the world, followed by seven years of tribulation for the sinners left behind, is a relatively recent invention.

The Rapture has been one of the most lucrative inventions of the church: entrepreneurial Christians have made billions writing books, producing movies, and hosting seminars depicting this fantastical event.

Evangelists, pastors and other evangelical leaders know that the rapture is a scam, but lay Christians actually really believe this nonsense.

Word to the wise: Chill out! Smoke a joint! If Jesus does return, he is so chill that he will just ask you to pass him the bong.

Movie Theatres Are as Anachronistic as Malls

The pandemic was the coup de grâce, but going to the movies was already as anachronistic as going to the mall.

I’ll stipulate that I’m a misanthrope who considers three or more persons mingling together a crowd to be avoided at all costs, but in the age of pandemics and terrorist attacks, I’m no longer a solitary figure who looks askance at the great unwashed.

Action and comic book hero movies rule at the box office, and fans of Star War or Harry Potter flicks would flock to movie theatres, and waiting in line and socializing with other cult members was almost as much fun as watching the film.

But now stans of a particular movie franchise can socialize with their kind in online forums, chat rooms and web sites.

Why go to a movie theatre when you need to take out a second mortgage to afford a large tube of popcorn, when many new releases are available simultaneously on streaming services?

What killed the movie theatre experience?

Wide screen TV’s! Streaming services! Fear of crowds! Spiraling prices of movie tickets! Expensive popcorn! Spree killers! Cell phones ringing sporadically! And of course, the pandemic!

GOP Congressman Sparks Outrage for Family Christmas Pic with Guns Days After School Shooting

“A US congressman has posted a Christmas picture of himself and what appears to be his family, smiling and posing with an assortment of guns, just days after four teenagers were killed in a shooting at a high school in Michigan.

Thomas Massie of Kentucky tweeted: ‘Merry Christmas! ps. Santa, please bring ammo.’”

The Guardian

When politicians mail Christmas cards to their constituents or post Christmas images on Twitter, they usually take one of the following routes:


They will don nauseatingly cheesy yuletide sweaters and pose in front of a Christmas tree, hoping that the self-deprecating image will elicit votes.


They will pose in front of a nativity scene with a banner reading “Jesus is the Reason for the Season” in the background, trusting that their display of religiosity will translate into votes.


They will dress like Santa and pose in front of a sleigh laden with gifts, believing that their secular take on Xmas will appeal to voters of all religions.

Rep. Thomas Massie took a different approach, he posted a pic of himself and his family wearing shit-eating grins and brandishing assault rifles. I guess he wants to appeal to the Republican base, gun-toting fanatics.

It’s an indictment of our democracy that Massie’s Christmas image will be successful in burnishing his image.

Donald Trump and White Evangelicals Were Made for Each Other

The disgraced twice-impeached Donald Trump is precisely the commander-in-chief white evangelicals lusted after, and he is exactly the Messiah they deserve.

Evangelicalism and Trumpism are fueled by anger, resentment and fear of changing demographics, empirical science and loss of white privilege.

Evangelicals don’t care about what’s right or wrong in the sight of their God, it’s all about halting their losing streak, and winning at any costs under the leadership of Trump.

They dream of a theocracy led by their orange Messiah where the only acceptable greeting during the holiday season is “Merry Christmas”, where fans who don’t stand for the National Anthem will be arrested, and where prayers in the name of Jesus will be restored at public schools.

Evangelicals don’t care about “winning souls for Christ”, but owning the libs and gaslighting them.

By their words and actions, they have rejected the loving and compassionate Jesus Christ and made common cause with the hateful and vengeful Donald Trump.

If their scripture is true, hell awaits Donald Trump and his white evangelical enablers and supporters.

Anti-Vaxxer Evangelical TV Mogul Marcus Lamb Dies of Covid-19

Marcus Lamb, the evangelical founder of a prosperity gospel television network died of Covid-19 on Tuesday after he and his network advocated against the Covid vaccine. He was 64. His son announced his father’s death on Twitter.”


I don’t celebrate the death of Lamb, a televangelist huckster, enabler of Trump and spreader of false conspiracy theories, but I do rejoice that the voice of this prominent anti-vaxxer has been silenced.

As the founder and CEO of Daystar Television Network, the worlds’ second-largest Christian television network, Lamb had a huge platform to spread his pernicious falsehoods about the coronavirus.

God only knows how many people needlessly died after following his advice to eschew vaccinations and to forego wearing masks.

His son Jonathan had this on the death of his father:

“My father was promoted to heaven at 4 a.m. this morning. His life was truly well-lived and there’s no doubt that he heard ‘well done my good and faithful servant’ when he entered heaven’s gates.”

Bullshit! We can debate whether or not there’s a heaven, but I think most of us can agree there’s no place in heaven for grifters, liars, and con artists.

As a person wittier than me said: Finally silence of the Lamb.
