Devil's in the details
Flat Earthers are the smartest humans in the world. We have seen through the veil.
—Pastor Ernest[1]

Pastor Ernest a.k.a. Brother Ernest (real name Ernest Perce) is the living embodiment of everything wrong with Christian fundamentalism. He supports a flat earth, a literal Bible, 9/11 conspiracy theories, and is an antisemitic sovereign citizen who believes in a global Jewish conspiracy.[2] His webshites reek of green ink. He is known for initiating spurious legal actions, including harassing a teacher in his local school district for wearing a Star of David necklace.[3] He may be a Poe.

In 2012 Perce was the Pennsylvania state director of the American Atheists and Nonbelievers, and as such, was involved in the acquisition of an inflammatory billboard that presented the image of a shackled slave along with an accompanying Bible verse.[4] Perce was also known as the "Zombie Mohammed"[5] whose legal case further demonstrated his bizarre incoherence and ignorance.[6]


Flat earth[edit]

Planes fly higher than the moon and sun on many occasions
—Pastor Ernest[7]

Perce "proves" a flat Earth by showing that both the moon and sun are visible at the same time, a total impossibility for a spherical Earth.[8] He cites Isaiah 66:1, which reads "Thus saith the LORD, The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool", and notes that "Flootstools are flat, not round!"[1] He says, "[the] Sun is not 96 million miles away, it's actually within our atmosphere, and even under the clouds". Perce even argues that Google admits that "the earth [sic] is covered by a dome"[9] because of their Snow Globe Google Doodle.[10]

Perce used the flat Earth as proof that God exists.[11] However, in 2019 it appears that Perce disavowed his flat earth beliefs and is now promoting a "concave earth" conspiracy theory.[12]

Moon landing hoax[edit]

Perce thinks the moon landings were fake and involved aliens.

Soon after seeing the flying saucer technology, JFK made his famous speech asking NASA to land a man on the moon before the decade was out.

Many insiders believed that this was a ploy by JFK to get NASA, and the secret government, to release their saucer technologies. Since it was obvious to everyone that standard rocket technology could not getman [sic] to the moon and back, JFK may have thought that NASA would be forced to release the knowledge of the technology behind the flying saucers in order to fulfill his vision and get to the moon by the end of the 1960's.

JFK's ploy was therefore intended to free this advanced technology from the insidious hands of the shadow government.[7]

9/11 conspiracies[edit]

Perce tells us that the Jews and/or Israel did 9/11 and he has irrefutably debunked what he calls the "Official 9/11 Jewry Report." Ad nauseam.[13][14]

ISLAM WAS FRAMED by Zionist Jews in the United States Government and in Fake Israel! [...] Let's get right to the point, it was the Canaanite Jews who did 9/11 not the Arabs (Muslims). The Israeli Secret Intelligence Service is "ISIS," an acronym of the goddess ISIS. ISIS is the Mossad who did 9/11.[14]

Sovereign citizenry[edit]

Pastor Ernest's support documentation for claiming he is a sovereign citizen comes up a little...confusing.
Glory to YHWH, I'm tired of paying Jew-inspections Jew-insurance and Jew-fees to play the drive-game. I am a minister of YHWH's Flat and Stationary Earth. I'm a Sovereign Citizen. I don't have to have a driver's license, did you hear that? Figure it out yet? You've no need license [sic], auto insurance or current registration, for you are a child of YHWH as you are if you are a Sovereign Man or Woman of YHWH's Flat and Stationary Earth. Stand up for your Constitutional rights for they were given to you by YHWH Himself and by the blood of our Christian forefathers.
—Pastor Ernest[15]

Perce also subscribes to typical sovereign citizen nonsense. He proves his point by crudely photoshopping a picture of the United States Supreme Court justices with Jewish stars in an infantile manner. He believes that one can sue police for harassment, stalking, terrorizing and violating the constitution upon any contact. He includes guidance on how to use freeman on the land gibberish when pulled over for a traffic stop.[15]

Antisemitism and homophobia[edit]

Perce savagely attacks homosexuals and justifies homophobia based on a twisted interpretation of the Bible. He believes that Caitlyn JennerWikipedia and actress Jessica LangeWikipedia are one and the same, and links this to an international Jewish conspiracy complete with a crude caricature of an Evil Jew.[16] He is also a Holocaust denier, using a whole bunch of green ink copypasted from internet hate sites as proof.[17][18]
