The Cover Up that Scandalized Jacksonville!

Bob Gray was the pastor of Trinity Baptist Church, and the founder of Trinity Christian Academy, both located in Jacksonville, Florida. He was also a pedophile who preyed on the children of his congregation.

Gray was arrested on multiple charges of child molestation and died just before his trial was to begin.

Tim Gilmore, a professor at Florida State University, has documented the history and lore of North Florida. He turns his eye to an unforgettable story that some still wish would be forgotten.

Dwayne Walker, a former graduate of Trinity Christian Academy, reviews Gilmore’s book, and also offers some personal insight based on his experiences at the scandalized Christian high school.

Vampires and Burlesque Dancers! Or: How did you spend the dawn of the 21st Century?

If I were on my deathbed and my final dreams centered around how I spent the dawn of the 21st Century, the images would be made up of burlesque dancers and vampires. The two videos I have just posted are proof of this.

Eternal Vampiricus.

Vampiricus was an experience that occured at NAGA, a club near the docks in Long Beach, California. It was produced by Blade Rhino.

George Metivier was a photographer who spent quite a few evenings at Vampiricus capturing the happenings and, on occasion, some of the attendants became his models. Eternal Vampiricus is a slideshow featuring  the scrapbook George kept from that era of the late 90s. The music is from Babylonian Tiles.

Metivier has since passed away. There was not one obituary in the Long Beach Press Telegram. The only notice was this mention in the Panama Canal Society newsletter:

George Metivier of Long Beach, Calif., recently passed away. He graduated from BHS in 1951. He owned his own photography business which allowed him to use his art training. He authored several books and exhibited his works widely. He was a member of the Panama Canal Society.

Outside of hereticsofhollywood.com, none of the links in this slideshow are currently working.

Exotic World, 2002.


A renewed appreciation for the scandalous dancing from the early 20’s and 30’s was born again at the dawn of the 21st Century. Exotic World, a museum dedicated to burlesque, was founded by Jenni Lee in San Pedro, CA. She later moved it to Helendale, California. Dixie Evans, a burlesque dancer known for Marilyn Monroe shtick, took over the operation. Dixie Evans passed away and the ranch was closed.

This video was taped in 2002 and features Dirty Martini, Kitty Diggins, Kitten Deville, Dixie Evans, and many, many more notables can be seen in the audience, as well as on stage!

The Burlesque Hall of Fame, the successor to Exotic World, opened in Las Vegas at Fremont East. The gallery is opened but it will be closed in September. The full museum will be relocated to the Arts District in 2017.

Bible Madness at Amazon Video on Demand!

Roger Bunyan (Dallas Munroe) and Pete Jackson (Bart Aikens) are two bible college students out to win souls in this feature length movie that explores the world and mindset of two independent fundamental Baptists.

It was cited in a number of articles regarding various issues regarding fundamentalism. Brills Content, OC Weekly, The Imp, Rock City News, and Los Angeles magazine mentioned Bible Madness. Brills Content, The Imp, and Los Angeles, in particular, noted the Jack Chick references in the movie. Film Threat gave it 3 1/2 stars and a positive review. A graphic advertising Bible Madness can be seen in a news report concerning a public awareness event on the subject of religious abuse that I held in Jacksonville, Florida.

“An absorbing and surprisingly thoughtful meditation on the place of religion in contemporary society.” Film Threat.
