Old Time Religion Communist Beatles David Noebel Christian Obscenity


Old Time Religion in which christian David A. Noebel seems to have the ability to hear God tell him the Beatles are communists.  Noebel's numerous books, including Understanding the Times: The Religious Worldviews of Our Day and the Search for Truth are are widely used among Christian schools, churches and colleges.  Nice.  Other books by the dangerous nut job include The Homosexual Revolution ???? (One of America's most serious problems, he says) and what is presumably a scientific book about Aids.

At one time the publisher Christian Crusade spewed their hate bile under the guise of religion on 500 radio stations.  There is no requirement to do research or believe in science to operate a radio program...or run a school actually.  Just have the kids read this for home-school.  Noebel's buddy and publisher was the Reverend Billy Hargis, who was accused of having sex with both male and female students by Time Magazine.

Noebel's "ministry" STILL OPERATES and HERE THEY ARE.  Send them some love.

old time religion Grant Hayes and his Jesus Christ Board of Knowledge Artist and Quizmaster of Detroit




Detroit artist and quizmaster Grant Hayes displays his Jesus Christ Board of Knowledge in this 1981 photograph by news photographer David Belanger (a working photographer with better than average skills, actually) in Detroit.  Mr. Hayes registered his invention, but I don't think much came of it.  Note the Knowledge board is titled "Teacher's Tool and Learner's Delight" atop.  As you can see, Mr. Hayes was running a contest.
