The U.S.S. Armstrong sunk years ago, but on the life boats the band(s) still plays on. To this very day, the groups that follow Herbert’s cesspool of doctrinal error and corruption try to mimic what was prophesied, what was said, or how it was said. The very art of mimicking Herbert in every possible way has nothing to do with the following and worship of Jesus Christ, but with the worship and devotion to Herbert W. Armstrong and their leading evangelist guru.
The preacher sketch: This was a send-up of a fire & brimstone radio preacher from the USA, Garner Ted Armstrong (who became Garner Ted Hamstrung for the sketch) who was on radio every night condemning sinners to eternal damnation. The sketch was written and performed by Charles Wooley, of Sixty Minutes fame.
