Response to KentuckyWoman (Reply #23)

25. I looked up Mike Warnke on Wikipedia,

Apparently a notable religious magazine exposed Warnke as a fraud in June 1992. It seemed that this magazine story went generally unacknowledged, by other Evangelical Christians. I didnít learn about Warnke being discredited for many years ex post facto.

Of course, what was happening in June 1992 was political campaigning. The trusted, incumbent
Republican was being out-flanked by a charismatic Democrat and an eccentric billionaire. Warnke slid down a memory hole. Heavy Metal slid off the music charts. Politics became the focus for Evangelical Christians.

I heard quite a few hearsay campfire stories back then.
