My mom and I often watched his TV program on Sunday mornings for the shits-and-giggles factor.  When it was announced that his crusade was coming to Rochester, she even mentioned possibly bringing my grandmother(who was in a wheelchair from polio).  Fortunately, we didn’t.

Is this the pastor that admitted to cheating during a sermon on TV?

No, that was Jimmy Swaggart.

I thought he died 20 years ago!

Mod note- moving this out of the archive for now since it is news.

He is local to me and a truly evil man. Good riddance.  

The Beacon Journal newspaper has done a couple multi-part series on his shenanigans over the years which are worth the time to Google and read... Angely was a rotten as they come.

I hadn't heard of him, but here's his Wikipedia article, which I found helpful.

Robin Williams had a running gag about him. Here's one of Williams' routines about Rev. Ernest Angley/ Rev. Earnest Angry.

Richard Kind could play him on SNL skits.

Thus passes a truly vile, despicable, nasty excuse for a human. I hope his name is immediately forgotten.

      A happy summer solstice to all northern hemisphere FJers! And a happy winter solstice to all southern hemisphere FJers! (I know it's already Monday is Australia, so I'm late for most of you.)

      ETA--Oh! I just checked, and the winter solstice is at 1:31 PM on Monday, June 21 in Eastern Australia Time. So, for once the time zones worked in my favor. I'm not late!

      I'm so angry at the Bishops right now. Shit like this is why I left the Catholic church. They play politics so blatantly.  I hope this convinces more people to leave.

      My grandmother came from a town in Missouri of (now) population ~14,500 and 8 Baptist churches.  Not counting all the other denominations, that's just the Baptists.  
      MY grandfather came from Drimoleauge, Ireland which has a current population of ~450 people (not a typo) and 1 church and 5 pubs.  
      If I get a time machine take a wild guess which ancestors I'm going back to visit?  I'm not social, don't enjoy bars, and prefer to imbibe at home but sitting in a pub has to be better than being Godbothered to death by people pretending they don't drink.  
      Fun unrelated fact - Martin Luther spent so much time on the toilet he had a desk built so he could work there, and would take meetings while actively pooping.   He also wrote letters to people with vivid descriptions of his poops.   That should make everyone feel a little better about their work place and emails.

      Dear FJ ladies of a certain age.  Did you know that joint pain can appear/increase with perimenopause and menopause?  No?  Me neither till my rheumatologist told me yesterday.  It's all down to the fall in (o)estrogen. 
      Looking online, it'll either settle down as your hormones adapt to their new levels OR you're stuck with it!  I don't fancy needing NSAIDs for the rest of my life.
