Truth: It's the gospel

by Jeremy Hooper

Going to a PETA board meeting with a platter of TurDucken.

Running for NRA president on an "even water guns should be destroyed" platform.

Using an iPad to show a resume to the Microsoft HR department.

Such emotions were not exactly echoed by his fans, especially after Mr. Boltz publicly disclosed his homosexuality in a 2008 article in The Washington Blade, a gay newspaper.
