The Journal has an ad up for a Church of God splinter cult that has the following information. Would you send a check to this guy with the "Pay To" area blank? Are people this stupid?
Not only that, but he refers to Illinois as Illinois Republic and refuses to use a Zip Code.
After reading the above, does it really make any sense? He sounds like another conspiracy nut.Church of God,The MOST HIGH GODDeclaring the Everlasting Gospel of the Kingdom of God(According to the Holy Scriptures, Genesis, Chapter 14, Verses 18-22; Founded Monday, June 18, 31 AD; Book of Acts Chapter 2.

Then I thought I would look him up. I had never heard of this splinter group. Of course there is no web site. Just a PO Box to take in free money from gullible people. But there was this:

LAKE IN THE HILLS - A Lake in the Hills man was charged with four counts of unlawful possession of a firearm after police responded to a 911 call at the man's house, police said Tuesday.
Vincent M. Ogorek, 38, of 5513 Chantilly Circle, fell from a second-story bedroom window Saturday night while police talked with his wife, said Al Bokowski, Lake in the Hills chief of patrol services.
Police went to the house because someone from the residence called about a suspicious incident at a neighbor's house, Bokowski said.
As police stood at the front door, Ogorek was on the second floor, holding a gun, he said. Ogorek was ordered to put down the weapon, but he went into the bedroom and fell to the driveway, Bokowski said.
Ogorek's wife and another person were questioned at the police department about the incident, Bokowski said. In a statement to police, Ogorek said he lost his balance and fell from the window while "relaxing," he said.
Ogorek was taken to Memorial Medical Center in Woodstock, where he was treated and released. Bokowski said police waited to charge Ogorek until he left the hospital.
He was released from custody on $100 bail.
Officers removed four firearms and ammunition from the house. Ogorek was charged because his firearm owner's ID card had expired, Bokowski said.
He also was charged with possession of ammunition without having a firearm owner's identification card.
His court date is pending.
