Of course he did.
PayPal is cutting ties with “Christian” fundraising platform GiveSendGo, making it harder for the site to collect money for the controversial campaigns they host.

Jerry Falwell, Jr. returned to Instagram today… with a dig at climate change. Proving once again that he’s always doing his best to be the worst.
Lawmakers in North Dakota have introduced a bill that would require clergy to report confessions of child sexual abuse to authorities. Shocking this wasn’t already the law, right?

The former spiritual adviser to President George W. Bush has been busted for his role in a massive fraud scheme. Pastor Kirbyjon Caldwell will spend six years in prison for personally receiving $900,000 of the $3.5 million in fake bonds he sold gullible people. Where’s a good spiritual adviser when you need one?
There’s no appropriate commentary for this other than laughter:
Finally, atheists, our time has arrived!
