Bill Keller proclaims “Daily Devotionals” on his website, with topics like “The False Religion of Islam and the Courage to Tell One Billion People They are Going to Hell.” Keller, who admits he found God after being convicted of insider trading in the late 1980s, has already posted a schedule of services for 2011, and is seeking donations. As the website Salon.com points out, Keller is also behind a series of late-night infomercials questioning President Obama’s citizenship, and demanding that Obama produce his birth certificate. He actively sought donations in the effort to prove that Obama “is not legally the president.” The donations would be used to send petitions to lawmakers.
