The Gay Guy Who Lied About the Whole Foods Cake Has Company…

In the person of a gay YouTube ‘star’ who filed a false report with police when he said he was assaulted- but hadn’t been.

A gay YouTube personality who said he was assaulted outside a West Hollywood club has been charged with filing a false police report and faking his injuries.

The Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department says London-native Calum McSwiggan was seen hitting himself with a jail payphone after his arrest early Monday. McSwiggan had claimed he was assaulted by three men outside a gay club, but deputies said they could not substantiate his claims and took him into custody after seeing him vandalize a car. The 26-year-old wrote he was attacked by three men who broke his teeth in an Instagram post Tuesday that included a picture of him in a hospital bed.

He was charged Wednesday with one misdemeanor count of making a false police report. A Facebook message sent to him seeking comment was not immediately returned Wednesday. He was released late Monday after posting $20,000 bail. Sheriff’s officials released his mug shot, which was taken before he hit himself with the phone. No injuries were visible.

How badly do you want people to see you as a ‘victim’ if you’re willing to lie about a bakery and an assault?

Wal-Mart’s Clever Scheme: Savings Catcher

Wal-Mart has a thing called ‘savings catcher’.  When you buy stuff you can scan a receipt with their app and supposedly it will compare what you’ve paid with the same items for sale elsewhere in the area.  If you could have paid less somewhere else, they give you the difference.

It’s actually pretty cool until you spend a lot of money (over $400 in our case) and then, mysteriously, the number on the receipt is declared invalid and you’re notified of that invalidity later.  Or, in our case, exactly 8 days later… which is just in time to make such notification utterly meaningless…

Well played, Wal-Mart.  Well played.

The Bee Stings the Heretic Benny Hinn

The older I get, the more I realize how lucky I’ve been in life.

It was 1983 when I first started claiming to be a special vessel of the healing power of God Almighty. That’s right, more than thirty years—think of it now, thirty years!—of “Benny Hinn Miracle Crusades.” I’ve been to so many countries, performed so many times, and made so much money, that sometimes it seems like this has all been a dream.

As I look back at all I’ve accomplished in my life, there’s one thought that keeps popping up in my mind—I honestly can not believe I’m still getting away with this.

I’m 64 years old now—twice the age I was when I first started whipping people into an emotional frenzy in order to make them believe, in their manic state, that God would heal and bless them if they gave me money; indeed, that when I touched them, that they had been touched by God Himself. And believe it they did. How could anyone blame them? These were desperate people. That’s who I go after—the desperate ones. Why do you think I have so many healing crusades in third-world countries? These are poor, desperate people.

Signs of the Times

I get the feeling that some biblical scholars like it when the press publishes nonsense about biblically related subjects like the ark and Jesus’s wife and such. It gives them a chance to be in the public eye to refute the rubbish (which they have previously supported at conference presentations) on tv specials or news broadcasts.

But I guess everyone needs to justify their existence.

The Bee Stings The Buffoonery of TV Based ‘Theology’

In particular among Evangelicals who draw their views from badly done tv shows instead of Scripture.
