Which COG leader " guilty of a shocking display of dishonesty and sophistry"

The Painful Truth has an excellent article about Bob Thiel.  A few choice morsels are here:

The Year Ahead. Bob Thiel and the ACOG’s.

One of the PT editors recently made this statement to me: “Bob Thiel is guilty of a shocking display of dishonesty and sophistry.” I confess to a similar sentiment, but as it is, Thiel, who is a peddler of Herbert Armstrong’s fictional and failed prophecies, is generally considered by the ACOG community as  a huckster and poses little threat if he is constantly challenged and kept in check. He certainly does not display the honesty or character of Ian Boyne, who allowed people to challenge his thoughts and his writings.

"With this short article, we want to share with you our view about Bob Thiel’s malignant beliefs and what damage we can expect in the coming year. We would not have to do so if Thiel allowed comments at his website where we could challenge him and refute his writings."

"Keep in mind that opinions are like sphincters: we all have them. As we know, Bob’s opinions are certainly not filled with gumdrops and happiness or even pink unicorns. His opinions on religion, or world politics, mostly everything are grossly mistaken, and the conclusions from what he wrongly takes to be evidence that supports his views are dreadfully distorted. He sees the world through false prophet Herbert W. Armstrong’s eyes instead of implementing objective thought." 

"As we march forward into the future this following year, it remains to be seen whether Bob’s sick racialism will be capable of self-critique. Can he, will he acknowledge his own insularity and excesses, or will he continue down the path of smug self-congratulation and vanity, never passing up an opportunity to destroy, debauch, devalue, and dehumanize a wide assortment of innocent people?"

Somehow, I get the feeling that no matter the path, Bob would always be a mouse amongst giants, constantly attempting to influence others' opinions about him rather than contributing anything substantive which might speak more eloquently in that direction.

All of the COA (Church Of Armstrong) cults have displayed dishonesty!

I can't help noticing that society is becoming more and more like the church of Armstrong cults. For instance, 'dissident' guest speakers like Milo Yiannopoulos are chased off college campuses. Political correctness has become the secular equivalent of tyrannical ministers.
Which means that church members who qualify for the kingdom will be intimately familiar with the attitudes of their subjects.

Anglo-Israelism is what David Duke has spewed before. Raciest stuff that no one needs.
