Yeah I remember reading about that. I don't like this guy. He wrote a bike around Indianapolis us with a with a cage of monkeys and he would sell them at door to door for twenty nine dollars and the sales he was able to raise quite a bit of money and he started. It is church and some of the customers that bought monkeys from attended started attending his services at the monkeys from him. Yeah people that he would buy. Monkeys are that would by monkeys from Jim Jones occasionally would start going to his church at because there were incentives if they went to his church monkey food for free no better than that and they brought a friend who signed up.
