Old Time Religion A Modern Mother by the Calvary Crusade from Columbus, Georgia. The religious war on women goes way back, but this example is from the 1960s. The Calvary Crusade felt no need to put a date on this pamphlet. The Modern Mother, as expected, ends up in a fiery Hell because:
1. "she has kissed and petted with nearly every young man in town…"
2. " the dark lover's lane was her favorite spot…"
3. "she spends her money foolishly so that he (her husband) is always in debt"
4. "she is constantly looking for imported liquors, wines, vodka and anything she thinks will give her a thrill, including dope"
5. "She seeks movies, taverns, night clubs country clubs, flower clubs and all places of sinful pleasure and disgrace."
6. "She girdeth herself with a bikini because she thinks the mini-skirt will not expose enough of her body to lustful, wicked and sinful men."
7. "She is afraid of work…"
(We are just getting warmed up here.)
8. "She fights to keep Sunday from being a holy day, tries to make it a holiday for sin, pleasure and sports…"
9. "Her children wind up in trouble, diseased bodies, broken health and they curse her, calling her a mother of prostitutes, drunkards, law violators, sex perverts and she-devils."
I guess you get the point.
A Modern Mother pamphlet (50 cents per dozen) from Calvary Crusade no date. Collection Jim Linderman.
The Judge, while serving (no…not the Lord) as the President of the Watch Tower conglomerate was always fighting with his Board of Directors, and under his tutelage the church lost tons of members. He was also jailed once for stirring up unpatriotic behavior during the First World War. He hated Christmas and birthdays. He hated singing national anthems too.
When he passed away, it took "them" five months to figure out where he should be buried, and even then "they" tried to keep it a secret for some reason.
The piece above is accurate, more or less. It is said he sold FOUR HUNDRED MILLION BOOKS!

Despite having a right wing college now named after him, he was a college dropout. He left school as more money was to be made on the converting trail. He was soon preaching to millions. His sermons railed against drinking, dancing and desecrating the sabbath. Think of that every time you go to the bar on Sunday and dance. That's three sins in one night, and if you end up in the rumble seat on the way home, I guess that would be four. No wonder young folk are leaving the organized church like sin-chasing lemmings.
He made a film depicting sins so lurid, it was nearly banned, but that was an old sideshow and carnival trick to bring in the crowds. Use the sins to bring them in, but have it end with salvation.
Jones supported politicians who were members of the Ku Klux Klan, but he wasn't too excited about those who professed to be Catholics. He didn't like science. He was a segregationist until he was 70 years old and used the bible to prove it. An example of his wisdom is the statement "It is not an accident that most of the Chinese live in China, it is not an accident that most Japanese live in Japan…" Brilliant observations like that are characteristic. Tool of God? No, just a tool. He didn't like Jews either.
A "clap of thunder" convinced him there should be a Christian college. Just what we needed. The doors are always open to Republicans, including the first George Bush. His visit there resulted in a firestorm of hell so profound, the school even had to change their rule against inter-racial dating.

In which "Black people in the United States have more cars than the entire Soviet Union" and God put a curse on the Kennedy's because they sold liquor. "Payday is coming for all those who deal in this business of making drunkards, paupers, harlots and criminals…" In which Roman Catholic influence on the media has made true work of bible-believing preachers more difficult. In which "God's reason for allowing the assassination" was liquor. In which the assassin of Kennedy did God's will.

Former stud poker "dummy" or "rakeoff man" Reverend McNab Wilson in 1932. He abandoned the gambling houses of Nevada to spread the good word to Blackfeet tribe members whether they wanted it or not. McNab is more annoying than "cowboy poets" who have their annual "slam on the range" discussed every year on NPR.
