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.

Old Time Religion L. R. Shelton Broods from the Grave.
A rare early copy of the L. R. Shelton publication "Brooding." Even THEN the catalog of his books had nearly 50 titles ranging from one dollar each down to 35 cents.
In 2005, God (in the form of Katrina) destroyed the physical operation, so I think most of these, if any still remained in stock, are molding away in the basement. They moved to Baton Rouge. Today, the "non-profit" catalog is SEVENTY PAGES LONG. The operation is all wound up in several interlocking globs of truth, which are:
The Voice of Truth Radio Broadcasts, The Old Puritan Press and "The Old Trailblazer" which concentrates on the "coming of the anti-christ" aspect of the business.
Read the fantastic imaginary essay "Mr. T. Vee Goes to Court : The Hypnotic Eye HERE in which Sally and Bob turn out wrong from watching television. Sally ends up running away to Hollywood and now Bob smokes, drinks and swears. (excuse me…he "tells off-color jokes.")
They seem to be on about one hundred radio stations, and have even figured out how to stream…but their tapes are still sold in cassette form. I don't see any boom boxes for sale on their site, but as the catalog is 70 pages, I don't have time to scrutinize it. Warning: Do NOT dowload it unless you have plenty of memory in the harddrive!

The Biography of Satan old time religion.
I'm not quite sure how the biographer got his material, Satan not having deposited his papers at any library or archive that I can find, but this is the "Revised and Enlarged" edition, so the scholar must have found even another source. Keen was Pastor of High Park Baptist Church in Scranton, PA. Maybe Satan visited Scranton and Clarence had a tape recorder.
In this edition ("These are historic FACTS and Satan continues to operate in a similar manner") Satan..."afflicts with physical maladies" "Satan has a synagogue" and "Satan solicits the help of tattlers, tale-bearers, busy-bodies and idlers."
The biography ends with Satan is banished to the Lake of Fire and Brimstone, which is a "bottomless pit" though the biographer does not indicate exactly where it is located.
The Biography of Satan (No Date) by Clarence M. Keen "Revised and Enlarged Edition" 16 pages price 15 cents. Other books by the author include "Where are the Dead?" Collection Jim Linderman

Old Time Religion Hollywood Scheme.
In which motion pictures lead to venereal disease, Marlon Brando is responsible, somehow…and Doris Day was not the innocent you think. Author Jess Pedigo was "principal" speaker of the daily Reaching Out radio broadcast.
Christian Crusade, and the radio broadcast (according to Wiki) was founded by Billy Ray Hargis, and his radio message was broadcast on more than 500 radio stations and 250 television stations. He was a segregationist. In 1974 several students at his American Christian College accused Hargis of sexual misconduct; however, the Tulsa district attorney found no evidence or wrongdoing. Hargis went into early retirement and the college closed in 1977.
Hargis founded the Christian Crusade in 1950, an interdenominational movement. In 1964 the IRS alleged that Hargis' involvement in political matters was a violation for religious institutions and withdrew the tax-exempt status of the Christian Crusade. At the time, Hargis had reported that the average contribution to his movement was $4, from a constituency of 250,000 donors, and it was receiving $1 million annually.
As for their principal speaker, Jess Pedigo also wrote "Satanism Diabolical Religion of Darkness" "The Ford Foundation Exposed" and "Playing with Fire: America's Obsession with the Occult"

The Main Sisters Souvenir circa 1925 Collection Jim Linderman
I guess it is a loosing battle. I try to look up Longdin Evangelists and Google gives me supermodel Linda Evangelista. I try to search the singing vessels of the Lord Mr. and Mrs. V. C. Forehand and I have to wade through page after page of millionaire tennis players reaching for the ball. The devil is in Google. This weekend I watched a charlatan tell me the devil was in my energy drink...666. Look it up, but don't use Google. It brings you the devil.
