Who is Rev J Foucault, Truro and does he have much of an audience?

Its prob a fake, much like the names of people in "American Voices" in Onion articles. 

Here's another reader letter in VIZ magazine, which is full of British silliness.

Quote
◆ I’M A keen
ornithologist and
I would quite like to
see an ostrich wearing
stockings and suspenders.
I’m not prepared to dress
one up myself, as I understand
that they can be quite aggressive,
but if any Viz readers have tried
it, I’d be very interested in seeing
some photographs.
Rev J Foucault,
Truro
PS Before you ask, I’m not
interested in rheas, emus or
cassowaries.

Another young pastor advocating for mental health dies by suicide - Los Angeles Times


Quote
On Monday afternoon, Jarrid Wilson, a pastor at a Riverside megachurch and the founder of a mental health advocacy group, took to Twitter.

“Loving Jesus doesn’t always cure suicidal thoughts,” Wilson wrote. “Loving Jesus doesn’t always cure depression. Loving Jesus doesn’t always cure PTSD. Loving Jesus doesn’t always cure anxiety. But that doesn’t mean Jesus doesn’t offer us companionship and comfort. He ALWAYS does that.”

That night, Wilson, 30, killed himself, according to Harvest Christian Fellowship, where he was an associate pastor.

and Donald Trump is President of the United States.

I'm not a doctor, I'm just someone who has done a ton of research into diet and nutrition.

Here.

The Unarians are my fave cult.  I still remember their anthem.  We had it on video tape in college, and played the hell out of it.

It wasn't  this one, but they do sing the anthem here.

Back in 1992, Jello Biafra of the Dead Kennedys visited the Unarius Brotherhood compound to interview some of the cult members for a Los Angeles cable access TV show.
