10 Shady Movie Preachers

3 Mar

The Supreme Court ruled this week that Kansas’s Westboro Baptist may continue to picket the funerals of dead soldiers and nine-year-old girls. Whatever the court’s decision, the church is pretty terrible, and their nefarious leader Fred Phelps (who is no doubt hiding a thing or two himself) is a really bad guy who will hopefully be “hewn down, and cast into the fire” soon. While we wait, however, check out these 10 shady movie preachers, for “by their fruits ye shall know them”.

Has a secret he’s desperately trying to hide.

2.Harry Powell

absurdly repressed community with an iron hand (but sees the light at the end of the film).

5.Jonathan Rudd
