Well met. I'll play your game, you rogue.
Look familiar? This is Donnie Davies, the "musician" behind the "God Hates a Fag" video and "Love God's Way Ministries" we discussed a few days back. Only it's not Donnie Davies. It's Joey Oglesby, a Dallas-based actor and comedian. And thus the mystery is solved.
I gotta say, even though it was eventually sussed out, Oglesby's hoax was a bang-up good one if it managed to keep this many people asking questions for this long. Good show, man. I can only hope that somebody will dig up a letter from James Dobson or Jerry Falwell or somebody sincerely proposing some kind of partnership with Oglesby's fictitious "ministry." (Oops, "propose," "partnership" . . . well, those kinds of things are illegal. Forget I even mentioned them.)
Thanks to everyone who weighed in on the issue, and congrats again to Joey Oglesby. This is the stuff of which Internet stardom (or, hell, even beyond-the-Internet stardom) is made.
