EP. 211 — The QAnon Currency Con Leader w/ Morgan Jay

What’s poppin’ Con-gregration? This week, comedian Morgan Jay joins the show to discuss Michael Protzman, the leader of a QAnon cult who recently passed away. His life and perhaps even his death contributed to scam after scam, earning him a rabid and well-paying following. Also, find out the falsehood that was the basis of the June 2023 Supreme Court ruling that a Christian graphic artist could refuse to make wedding websites for gay couples on the basis of the First Amendment. Stay Schemin’!
