We are again pleased to bring you news of brilliant skeptical activism from UK’s Good Thinking Society as they expose former fraud televangelist Peter Popoff. He’s back to his old tricks “healing” people. But also, he has what appears to be a lucrative fund-raising plan that demands money from patrons in exchange for gimmicks and trinkets.
The story of GTS’s investigation made the Daily Mirror (WOW!) including the print edition. They outright call him a charlatan, but that’s an established fact so it’s not libel.
Is the old charlatan “Reverend” Peter Popoff returning to his wicked ways?
The American snake oil salesman has been in the UK, churning out begging letters and holding a rally to heal the sick.
Among those “cured” at the latest London gathering was a woman who said her body was wracked with pain.
Popoff laid his hands on her and yelled “Back to the pits of hell”, apparently with remarkable results. But was it all it seemed?
Check out the entire story in this 5 minute video. The highlight is the “healing” of a woman who was observed handing out promotional material. After she was “healed”, she got up and left the session. Hmm. If he can fool people once, he can fool again.
