Remember Ernest Perce, the raging asshole who used to be the president of the Pennsylvania chapter of American Atheists? He’s viciously anti-Semitic, a Holocaust denier and a 9/11 truth. And now he’s apparently converted to Christianity and become a preacher. Good fucking riddance.
One of the men who forced Greencastle-Antrim School District to stop school board-led recitations of The Lord’s Prayer two years ago came back to apologize during last week’s regular meeting.
Ernest Perce V, Harrisburg, had asked Supt. Greg Hoover for permission to speak at the Oct. 2 meeting. He arrived with his two sons and a friend, and when given the floor, explained his dramatic change of heart.
Wearing a white clergy collar against a black shirt, he said he was now a traveling preacher.
“Every day I kick myself at what I did,” Perce told the board members and public in attendance. “Forgive me.”…“This is a huge turnaround for me,” Perce said.
He stated 35,000 American Christians had been killed for their faith in 2013.
“Why is that holocaust not taught in our schools?” he asked. “I can’t let my kids grow up in a world that will terrorize them.”
He also became convinced, after reading a book by President Dwight D. Eisenhower, that Jesus was not a Jew, the Jewish holocaust never occurred, and 9/11 was caused by “the false state of Israel.” He now leads Jesus Was Not a Jew Ministries, with 40 followers. He and his wife intend to pull their boys, Praise, 12, and Apple, 5, out of public school, to be homeschooled while traveling with them on the preaching circuit.
So he went from being a weapons-grade douchecanoe as an atheist to being a weapons-grade douchecanoe as a Christian. Good riddance to bad trash.
