Jones would not be allowed to give a "sermon" at Brickdam Cathedral which was a CATHOLIC institution while Jones was a Protestant. Furthermore he was even regarded as a heretic by protestants according to books written on the Jonestown massacre.
Jim Jones preached one night at the Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Church in Main Street GT. The Chronicle newspaper carried a front-page report. I read it. It said Jim Jones performed a miracle and "healed" a woman suffering from cancer. Sacred Heart officials didn't let Jones into the church again. They discovered that the healing was bogus. The "sick" woman was a plant and the "cancer" was chicken guts prop hidden in the rostrum.
The church was burned down in 2004 and rebuilt later. Read this:
I'm actually surprised they let Jim Jones in Sacred Heart given the religious baggage that followed him. A book I read a long time ago cited the disagreements he had with Catholics, and among protestants he was considered heretical. Saw footage of him in a documentary proclaiming he was god.
In another clip he said "socialism is god". I'm glad you never met this fella Gilly, he brought together yuh 2 loves - socialism and wanna be reverend
Not surprised at the usual "religious" shenanigans and fake miracles. Another "religious" conman. So much for religious folks.
