Sher Zieve[edit]

That Bon isn't lying, Sher Zieve is fucking crazy. ClothCoat (talk) 00:32, 14 September 2013 (UTC)

Rev. Austin Miles[edit]

Please tell me this isn't the same Rev. Austin Miles who once wrote a great, snarky expose of Jim Bakker, PTL, and the Assemblies of God? Secret Squirrel (talk) 00:56, 14 September 2013 (UTC)

If I had to guess I would say it probably is. He is quite snarky. ClothCoat (talk) 01:01, 14 September 2013 (UTC)
Hmm. When he wrote that book in 1989 he seemed to be pretty firmly in the secular humanist, ex-Christian camp. Secret Squirrel (talk) 01:05, 14 September 2013 (UTC)
Oh, then it's probably someone else, don't worry. It's a common name. This guy has no history of being like that. ClothCoat (talk) 01:10, 14 September 2013 (UTC)
I looked it up and it appears they are the same person, unless they look very similar too. Compare the links.[1] [2]
Of course he could have gone back over to the dark side. 1989 was rather a long time ago... Secret Squirrel (talk) 01:17, 14 September 2013 (UTC)
Yep, same guy. I see he still has it in for the Assemblies of God, at least. Secret Squirrel (talk) 01:22, 14 September 2013 (UTC)
That sucks. Too bad he's a raging fundie at this point. I wonder if he would have gone back to the Assembly if he hadn't burned all of his bridges with them. I think he's one of those guys motivated more by greed than belief. He's still one of the saner members of RenewAmerica (though that's not saying much).ClothCoat (talk) 01:26, 14 September 2013 (UTC)
Anyone looks relatively sane next to Cliff Kincaid.  :) Still... defending Peter J. Peters isn't exactly the mark of sane moderation. I have to wonder how much of his feud with the AOG was just paranoia? Secret Squirrel (talk) 01:57, 14 September 2013 (UTC)
Hard to say with these guys. I doubt he was ever genuine, but who knows. ClothCoat (talk) 01:59, 14 September 2013 (UTC)
