Truth In Action Ministries Scrubs Website To Hide Bogus 'Persecution' Story
On Monday, we reported that Truth In Action Ministries spokesman Jerry Newcombe wrote a column defending a Texas student athlete who claimed he was disqualified from a tack race over a religious gesture, which Newcombe used as evidence of anti-Christian persecution in America.
But Newcombe’s account had one tiny little problem: the week before he published his column, the athlete admitted that he made the story up.
Rather than retract his post, our friends at Wonkette point out that Truth In Action Ministries scrubbed it from their website and Newcombe rewrote the column to detail the case of Texas cheerleaders who wanted to put Bible verses on banners during football games.
But despite Truth In Action Ministries’ best efforts, you can still read Newcombe’s original (and never corrected) column here:
