Poor Gerald Flurry! He tries sooooooooooooo hard to be like his idol Herbert Armstrong but cannot carry it off. He has turned his ministry and headquarters into a house of worship for HWA. Even
Because of Herb, the world now knows they will be made into Gods and rule with rods of iron over fallen humanity. The world will be trembling at our awesomeness and marvel at our buildings and colleges. Invading armies will be so amazed by our colleges that they will not destroy the buildings Our church HQ's will survive into the millennium as examples of God's divine presence upon earth during the age of the filthy pagans and atheists.
Gerald's worship of HWA is legendary. Then Gerald went and committed a crime that has dogged him ever since. Because he is/was a big time alcoholic he was arrested for public drunkenness and for trying to bribe a peace officer who was attempting to arrest him. With a pile of beer cans outside his car door and an open container between his legs old Six Pack tried to slip a twenty to the officer to let him go.
His craziness does not end there. In the last few years he has told his members that they should be ready to flee to Petra. People packed bags, sold homes and farms to help Six Pack with his final push. That final pushed ended up being a mult-million dollar useless concert hall that has almost driven the Philadelphia Church of God in to insolvency.
A recent concert was only able to garner 400 people to fill an 800 seat auditorium. With a 20-30 thousand dollar performance fee, hotel, food and airfare for the performer, building utility costs, concert staff costs, etc. there is no way Six Pack's concert series is making money.
Six Pack has demanded that members shun family members, relatives and friends if they are not part of the Philadelphia Church of God. Families have been broken and destroyed because of this.
Yet, Six Pack can’t see through his blinders and continues to run off at the mouth. That stupid mouth has made him the butt of countless web sites and blogs.
Six Pack Flurry has recently named to the Encyclopedia of American Loons. What a prestigious honor!!!!!
What brought Lord Six Pack such honor? It seems Gerald wrote an article for his magazine where he trumpets these claims about American Colleges:
In his magazine Flurry writes an article in each issue detailing how America is falling apart because her youth do not follow his interpretation of God's values. This includes but is not limited to articles on how Universities undermine America's values: “American colleges and universities actually encourage people to indulge in SOME OF THE MOST REPUGNANT IMMORALITY IN THE HISTORY OF MAN! We lead the world to sexual immorality” (Flurry is a fan of random capitalization). Sexual interaction between consenting individuals at universities represent “SOME OF THE MOST IMMORAL ACTS IN HUMAN HISTORY”, right after the invention of science. In short, sex is the cause of the downfall of America.
Apparently, God was also responsible for the Haiti earthquake because the people there weren’t Christian enough – if you think of it, Flurry is actually a couple of notches more insane than Pat Robertson, though less influential. Oh, and Germany is ruled by the Nazis – that is, the old Nazis, since they survived WWII and are still running shop, apparently (visit the website here). He is really scared of Germany.
Flurry, like Pack, Weinland and Thiel all think they have some important message that the world needs to hear. All any of these people have accomplished is making asses of themselves for the entire church and world to see.
