Hypocrite, Meet Karma: Another Righteous Right-Winger Down

Arrest warrants for one of montanafesto’s favorite prohibitionists were issued today. Oh no, don’t worry; he wasn’t arrested for possessing the dangerous and violence- inducing marijuana,rest assured it was nothing like that.  Reverend Harris Himes and James “Jeb” Bryant stand accused of six felony charges, including theft, fraudulent practices and conspiracy to commit the same for their role in allegedly committing the pious act of bilking an investor out of his entire $150,000 inheritance. It gets worse though.  When things weren’t adding up, Himes abandoned the investor in Mexico, leaving him at property that wasn’t owned by either of the men.  Himes and his partner in crime stopped returning the victim’s calls a year ago, prompting a year long investigation which concluded that neither man are licensed to sell securities in Montana nor was their company registered as an investment property with the CSI.

Reverend Harris Himes, who believes that gay people should be put to death and that medical use of the marijuana plant is a sin against God, who ironically is often credited as the creator of said plant as well as of the Reverend Himes.  The pastor of the Big Sky Christian Center in Hamilton is often featured on Andrew Breitbart’s Big Government website and received quite a lot of attention when he witnessed SEIU thugs beating Kenneth Gladney a couple of years ago. The dramatic accounts of the beating were highly inconsistent and upon questioning, Himes changed several components of the tall tale, eventually admitting that he actually didn’t even see the “attack” begin.  Himes was a the GOP’s moral fixture during Montana’s 62nd legislative session, providing a special brand of moral authority, spiritual testimony and guidance in opposition of all proposed marijuana legislation, with the exception of the full repeal which God was hoping would become law.  He was also the GOP God Squad’s go- to guy when testimony containing moral judgments of homosexuality were required.  Himes, a brilliant biblical scholar; eagerly offered scripture supportive of the murder of our gay brothers and sisters sprinkled with the occasional opinion of God.  Himes was also rather concerned about the increasing number of attractive women who were suddenly interested in horticulture, which he naturally blamed on the demonic allure of the evil drug, marijuana.

The highly respected religious figure Reverend Himes also serves as the the state leader  of Montana Eagle forum….

“Montana Eagle Forum has members in all corners of the state of Montana. We are a conservative pro-family organization working in our communities and state to influence public policy on issues that affect our traditional family values, our freedoms as outlined by the U.S. Consititution and place the highest reguard (sic) for God. We accomplish this by informing and equipping citizens to take action.”

I wonder how God feels about someone who claims to act on His behalf, deceiving an innocent victim who was seeking a safe investment for his sizable inheritance.  I wonder how he feels about this man of God accompanying his investor to their non-existent property, which according to Himes was the site of their future factory.  The land, in reality; was an empty lot owned by neither of the men.  The state’s investigation concluded that the funds were indeed wired to Himes and bank records indicate the money ($150,000) was used to pay the balance of one of the frugal pastor’s credit cards.  The victim has not to this date received even one penny return on his investment in the non-existent corporation invented by the humble man of the cloth.

Although this was apparently a state investigation, I will borrow a quote from another one of montanafesto’s favorite prohibitionists, Rep James Knox:  “Praise the Lord and Praise the Feds!”  Personally, I feel far safer knowing a persuasive and sleazy preacher, quick to not only condemn the lifestyle of gay couples, but to actually PUBLICLY call for their death as an appropriate punishment, has been arrested for such serious crimes.   I support the arrest of false prophets who prey on the trust of their parishioners.  Reverend Himes, is of course innocent until proven guilty. Perhaps Montana’s cannabis patients who are now unable to find safe access to medicine will send Himes some friendly correspondence in the big house. Himes was used so often in testimony the during the last session that it is obvious he is a close friend of Montana’s GOP God Squad.  A suitable replacement should be located quickly, perhaps Nathaniel bar Jonah could provide moral guidance to the legislators instead.  Oh my, scratch that, he’s apparently passed on.

      • I’m no biblical scholar by any means. Does UN-consentual homosexuality still count? If it does, he’s heading to Hell for that and so many other sins.
        I thought the lusting over young gardeners was bad enough, Blew right past that one, Slimes.

        • I’m pretty sure that God allows the prison justice system to handle some of the world’s injustices. I bet he will excuse the non-consensual homosexuality unless Himes enjoys it. He already has quite a list of sins to atone for.

  1. Wow! Isn’t this just so typical of the holier than thou preachers with extreme views. It wouldn’t surprise me if he had a few encounters with little boys in his past. It’ll be interesting to see if he is convicted, and whether his sentence will be longer than someone who grows or possesses the evil weed!

    PS. When I get email alerts from Montanafesto, the emails are blank. Maybe there is something wrong with WordPress?

      • It’s a recent change. I usually get email alerts when there is a new post or a new comment. In the past few days, when I get these alerts, they are blank pages. It happens to me when I’m on two unconnected computers.

        • Strange. I wonder if it is happening to everyone. Nobody else has mentioned it, but none of the bloggers are subscribed to new posts so we haven’t received any blank emails. I may have to subscribe solely for that reason though. I will keep you posted.

  2. Ignorant people shouldn’t breed. Again a waste of space and oxygen. People need to realize that things are changing with or without them!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. This is the best story of the year! I’d like to see him take on a new lover behind bars but he is far to ugly, i think thats where all his gay animosity comes from. “They all look so fabulous, but my hair is oh so drab.” To bad they’ll only get a slap on the wrist! But at least we wont have to see him on youtube spreading hate and giving MT a bad name.

  4. pet peeve #2,386,936 – people who cherry pick the bible to support their batshit bigotries.

    other things found in leviticus:
    9 For every one that curseth his father or his mother shall be surely put to death: he hath cursed his father or his mother; his blood shall be upon him.

    next time your kids smart off, crush their brains out w a rock. god said so.

    10 And all that have not fins and scales in the seas, and in the rivers, of all that move in the waters, and of any living thing which is in the waters, they shall be an abomination unto you:
    11 They shall be even an abomination unto you; ye shall not eat of their flesh, but ye shall have their carcasses in abomination.

    like shrimp? burn in hell, heretic!

    18 And if a man shall lie with a woman having her sickness, and shall uncover her nakedness; he hath discovered her fountain, and she hath uncovered the fountain of her blood: and both of them shall be cut off from among their people.

    so god doesn’t like it if you do the wild thing w a lady during her time of the month. i really like that’s it’s referred to as a “sickness”. good times.

    5 They shall not make baldness upon their head, neither shall they shave off the corner of their beard, nor make any cuttings in their flesh.

    cut your hair? don’t have a beard? tattoos? piercings? tsk tsk

    18 For whatsoever man he be that hath a blemish, he shall not approach: a blind man, or a lame, or he that hath a flat nose, or any thing superfluous,
    19 Or a man that is brokenfooted, or brokenhanded,
    20 Or crookbackt, or a dwarf, or that hath a blemish in his eye, or be scurvy, or scabbed, or hath his stones broken;
    21 No man that hath a blemish of the seed of Aaron the priest shall come nigh to offer the offerings of the LORD made by fire: he hath a blemish; he shall not come nigh to offer the bread of his God.
    22 He shall eat the bread of his God, both of the most holy, and of the holy.
    23 Only he shall not go in unto the vail, nor come nigh unto the altar, because he hath a blemish; that he profane not my sanctuaries: for I the LORD do sanctify them.

    no freakin cripples in the temple, man!

    46 And ye shall take them as an inheritance for your children after you, to inherit them for a possession; they shall be your bondmen for ever: but over your brethren the children of Israel, ye shall not rule one over another with rigour.

    slaver? god thinks that’s okey dokey! just make sure you pass them on to your kids. if you didn’t already smash out your kids’ brains for smarting off, that is.

    god even has a thing or two to say about the good reverend’s current situation:
    2 If a soul sin, and commit a trespass against the LORD, and lie unto his neighbour in that which was delivered him to keep, or in fellowship, or in a thing taken away by violence, or hath deceived his neighbour;
    3 Or have found that which was lost, and lieth concerning it, and sweareth falsely; in any of all these that a man doeth, sinning therein:
    4 Then it shall be, because he hath sinned, and is guilty, that he shall restore that which he took violently away, or the thing which he hath deceitfully gotten, or that which was delivered him to keep, or the lost thing which he found,
    5 Or all that about which he hath sworn falsely; he shall even restore it in the principal, and shall add the fifth part more thereto, and give it unto him to whom it appertaineth, in the day of his trespass offering.
    6 And he shall bring his trespass offering unto the LORD, a ram without blemish out of the flock, with thy estimation, for a trespass offering, unto the priest:
    7 And the priest shall make an atonement for him before the LORD: and it shall be forgiven him for any thing of all that he hath done in trespassing therein.

    did you read that part, himes? you owe homeboy $150,000 + a fifth. and you best get your ass out in the woods and find a ram. you’ve got some repenting to do!

    it just goes on and on.
    god is also very clear as to what happens if you don’t keep ALL of his commands laid out in leviticus. it’s too long to copy here. check out leviticus 26 to see what you get for all of this hair cutting and shrimp eating.
