I sincerely and humbly apologize. I am guilty of having passed fake news on to all who read this post of mine yesterday.
In that post, I wrote that televangelist Jim Bakker claimed that the reason Donald Trump was in a hotel room all alone with Stormy Daniels was because he was sharing with her how Jesus Christ had changed his life and how Jesus could also save her from her sins as a porn star.
Last night, I was in bed and couldn’t stop thinking about that story and how it truly seemed to be beyond belief. Well, it turns out that it was, indeed, beyond belief. I went to the Snopes.com website and learned, much to my chagrin, that the story was a complete fabrication.
My source for that “news” that I posted about was an article in The Babylon Bee. I have since discovered that The Babylon Bee is a satirical evangelical Christian website that is known (although not by me) for its over-the-top fake stories about pastors, politicians, and celebrities.
And now I feel awful about having posted what turned out to be total bullshit.
I do hope that my credibility with you, my readers, hasn’t been completely destroyed and I am asking — no begging — for your forgiveness for having uncritically passed on what I should have recognized as satire.
