The Sounds of Fundamentalism: IFB Evangelist Dennis Corle Says Tony Fauci is a Liar

“Dr.” Dennis Corle

The Sounds of Fundamentalism is a series that I would like readers to help me with. If you know of a video clip that shows the crazy, cantankerous, or contradictory side of Evangelical Christianity, please send me an email with the name or link to the video. Please do not leave suggestions in the comment section.  Let’s have some fun!

Today’s Sound of Fundamentalism is a video clip of Independent Fundamentalist Baptist (IFB) evangelist Dennis Corle preaching against Barack Obama, the Clintons, and Dr. Tony Fauci. Corle has Dr. before his name, so he really, really, really knows what he is talking about.

In the 1980s, Corle preached several meetings for me at Somerset Baptist Church in Mt Perry, Ohio. He also preached a meeting for my father-in-law at Emmanuel Baptist Church in Buckeye Lake. Boy, do I have some stories to tell.

Corle is quite the bean counter. Here’s what he has to say about his IFB prowess on his bio page:

In his ministry he has had over 71,336 saved and 19,422 baptized. He has seen thousands of young people surrender for full time ministry many of whom are presently serving the Lord full time as well as thousands of members added to independent Baptist Churches during his meetings.

    These anti-science, anti-intellectual, anti-government preachers who live in their little fake news silos of right-wing conservative individualism aren’t doing their congregants any favors with their rhetoric. I would bet that a good number of their congregants are in high risk categories. It’s sad. Pastors could be encouraging their congregants to take precautions, but instead they are encouraging rank selfishness and potential harm to themselves and to others.

    more anti science stuff. they seem to hate any kind of science or knowledge of how things really work. when i was a kid, i was told to pay attention just enough to get a passing grade in science and not to believe what the teacher or book said. as an adult, i have been learning on my own. my dh was shocked to find out how science illiterate i was. it pains me that this is still happening.
