This morning, SOVO covers the ongoing antics of Donnie Davies.
In related news, Donnie Davies has a sweet, new retro look about his websites today. I have exchanged several YouTube grams with Donnie and he continues to insist he is not the “twin” of Mr. Oglesby. In our 1/29/07, unverified WTF report on this blog, we reported the possibility that Mr. Davies and Mr. Oglesby are really twins separated at birth.
In those YouTube grams, Mr. Davies has some interesting things to say about the recent episode and has asked me some interesting questions. I hope to get a statement from him soon.
This from the Love God’s Way website with the “hot new look.”
The Exciting New Look of Love God’s Way
Friends, corporate called me and was concerned about our image. They Blessed our humble Ministry with this hot new look. We hope you will explore. All the attention and new followers has corporate very, very excited. Stay tuned. We have a lot of hot stuff coming down the pipe, including the new Evening Service music video, the C.H.O.P.S. program and a exciting new therapeutic cartoon series.
Corporate? Therapeutic cartoon series? I think I’ll stop now.
UPDATE – 2/3/07 – Joey Oglesby has updated his Myspace blog with this message:
Joey on Donnie Davies
I , joey oglesby, have recently been identified as the fundamentalist preacher and songwriter Donnie Davies. I am very aware of the uncanny similarities in our appearance, including a very unfortunate chicken pox scar in between my eyes. Also, while we are both big fans of lists, his deals with gay bands while mine is a comprehensive list of ladders. However, that is where the similarities end. For instance, my Mom will tell you that I am much skinnier and more handsome than him. Also he can dunk a basketball, where as, I cannot. Although, in interest of full disclosure and to prevent further confusion, I can touch the rim and have a wicked sweet jump shot.
Most importantly though, our messages are vastly different. Donnie’s message seems to be one of hate and intolerance, where as mine, is of love and acceptance. Ultimately, it is my opinion that the message Donnie Davies conveys and the prejudice inherent in it do indeed exist in this world. Although i disagree personally with Pastor Davies, it seems his video has sparked some much needed dialogue. And for that i am grateful. But, it is ultimately the difference in our messages that makes me, Joey Oglesby, and him Donnie Davies, two very different people.
So is this a way of saying: I am not a hater, but I play one on TV?
I guess this WTF exclusive must now be retracted…
UPDATE: 2/7/07 – A new message on the Evening Service website begins to signal where the Donnie Davies saga is heading. God hates everyone…

Never mind. Even though it’s supposed to be free, they still want me to hand over my credit card info. I’m not falling for that again. I’m still waiting for that deposit from Mrs. Obuto from the Ministry of Finance at the Bank of Nigeria.
You can get it FREE from Brother Danny Davis. On his broadcast he said FREE (yes you can hear the caps) about 18 times. I almost called him. It was really funny. At first I was wondering if it was a parody… but he’s not.
As for the type of oil, I don’t know. It was some dreadful and slightly scary red color (I think that’s because it’s Blood of Jesus No Evil Oil). I think by all means you should go to his website and get yourself some.
I got a completely different e-mail in my inbox Tuesday from someone else who claims to be behind the video. He even provided a video to try to support his claim. But unless I get better evidence, I decided not to run with it. It looks like the other long list of bloggers who got CC’d on it decided the same thing.
Until the real Donnie Davies stands up once and for all, I think we’ll find a lot of people trying to take credit. One of them will be right. I just don’t know who.
The hoaxers have finally come clean…
Their email reads…
From: Donnie Davies [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org]

Subject: Response for direct inquiries to Brainfood about Donnie Davies
You have correctly discerned that Brainfood provides services to the Donnie
Davies project. We are providing this explanatory letter to people that fail
to get the joke to the degree of directly contacting us or, in some cases,
illegally attempting to disrupt our system services.
The site is indeed a hoax. Donnie Davies and his ministry are a cartoon of
forces at work in America that we feel are destructive to the Nation’s moral
compass and the integrity of community spirit. We do not condone the practice
of demonstrating at the funerals of America’s fallen soldiers and we do not
subscribe to the belief that gays and/or lesbians should be rounded up and
placed in death camps. We perceive these views to be disgusting and
anti-American. We also recognize that America must be tolerant of dissent to
preserve our Liberty and our way of life. The Donnie Davies project was
created as a mechanism to electronically excite protest, ignite discussion
and seed key phrases that would alter search results we view to be strategic.
Everyone is a critic and everyone will always have an opinion about how things
could be done better. We weighed the situation very carefully before we
entered into this because we knew that a certain amount of confusion was
necessary to provoke sufficient discussion. Before our campaign, searching
Google for the phrase “god hates fags” returned unadulterated hatred
slandering our soldiers, our country and the GLBT community. We have now
provided a message that people can hopefully laugh at. We believe meeting
hate with more hate only increases hate. Comedy has a fighting chance of
diffusing the situation.
For myself, personally, I got involved with this project because of Alan
Turing. Alan was the scientist who designed the world’s first computers in
order to break the encryption used in Nazi submarines. He was a hero. After
the war he was imprisoned for being gay. You can read more about him here:
That is our story. We regret if we have caused you emotional harm. We
understand that this explanation may not suffice and that you may view our
enterprise as misguided or malign. We felt otherwise and we acted. Supporting
us, whether you believe in us or not, is part of being American.
Team Donnie Davies
Get behind Donnie Davies today!
Oh, I need some of that. I can keep it with the “Agua Milagro de la Virgin de Guadalupe” miracle water we keep in the guest bathroom.
No Evil Oil. Is that olive or canola?
Just one more comment about Donnie Davies. I was wondering where he got the name. But then last night I happened onto a program on the WordNetwork featuring Evangelist Danny Davis.
Brother Danny Davis was pushing his Blood of Jesus “No Evil Oil” which had been prayed over for 17 days and could be used to rid your dwelling of the demons of poverty, witchcraft, and sickness.
I wonder if Brother Danny Davis was an inspiration.
Oh, yeah. I’m sure explaining all that will lay to rest all doubts they may have concerning my sanity.
I guess that should be tennis racquets to be precise. But I forgot the anti-soy ray guns that detect and eliminate the harmful and often hidden impact of soy. And don’t forget Electroshock Man who has incredible powers of reorienting his targets.
Well I am sure if you explained the context of your guffaw, your coffee neighbors would completely understand.
Tennis rackets! I laughed out loud in this nice, quiet coffee shop. Now people at neighboring tables think I’m nuts.
I am expecting more of an action figure type cartoon series – like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I think cuddly aliens and tennis rackets will play a prominent role.
TCM just showed “Funny Face” from 1957, followed by an honest-to-goodness movie cartoon showing of “Droopy the Dog”. The episode was “The Droopy Knight”, which I learn from Wikipdedia was nominated for an Academy Award for best short subject (cartoon) in 1957.
Now that’s therapeutic!
LOL Timothy. I was thinking something exactly along that same line.
Some folks just aren’t content with their 15 minutes
