Donnie Davies “outed”?

Remember Donnie Davies, the “youth pastor” that I wrote about a couple of days ago, who posted a list of gay bands, plus a homophobic video proclaiming that “God hates a fag” that led to a prolonged debate over whether he was for real or some sort of elaborate Borat-like prank?

Two sources tell me that he’s apparently been outed as actor Joey Oglesby:

Thanks to the sleuthing of Dallas JMG reader Bob Stoller, “Pastor Donnie Davies” has been exposed as Dallas-area actor Joey Oglesby (First name corrected from post headline). Here he is. Joey Oglesby recently appeared in a production of Debbie Does Dallas: The Musical. Joey Oglesby is a former member of the Chicken & Pickle Guys sketch comedy duo.

And it appears to make perfect sense if you read this description of the Chicken & Pickle Guys’ comedy: “The show is a comedy stew of dance, homophobic/gay experimentation, male chauvinism, obscure racism, and spiritual revelation.”

He’s also shown up in another, unrelated video for you to compare:

Assuming this identification is correct, thank heaven our long national nightmare is over. Well, our national nightmare of about a week, anyway.

Orac is the nom de blog of a humble surgeon/scientist who has an ego just big enough to delude himself that someone, somewhere might actually give a rodent's posterior about his copious verbal meanderings, but just barely small enough to admit to himself that few probably will. That surgeon is otherwise known as David Gorski.

That this particular surgeon has chosen his nom de blog based on a rather cranky and arrogant computer shaped like a clear box of blinking lights that he originally encountered when he became a fan of a 35 year old British SF television show whose special effects were renowned for their BBC/Doctor Who-style low budget look, but whose stories nonetheless resulted in some of the best, most innovative science fiction ever televised, should tell you nearly all that you need to know about Orac. (That, and the length of the preceding sentence.)

DISCLAIMER:: The various written meanderings here are the opinions of Orac and Orac alone, written on his own time. They should never be construed as representing the opinions of any other person or entity, especially Orac's cancer center, department of surgery, medical school, or university. Also note that Orac is nonpartisan; he is more than willing to criticize the statements of anyone, regardless of of political leanings, if that anyone advocates pseudoscience or quackery. Finally, medical commentary is not to be construed in any way as medical advice.
