In 1972, Rev. Raymond Broshears founded the San Francisco branch of the Gay Activists Alliance and that same year helped organize the city’s first Gay Pride parade.

In March 1970, Discordian Society member Stan “Doc” Jamison (aka Coman Ra—Lt. Colonel, Commanding 1st Intergalactic Confederacy Advance Detail—Planet Shan) was exchanging information with Rev.

Broshears one can only guess, although it was probably due to their mutual […]
Our last entry recounted Rev. Broshears’ association with Jim Garrison’s investigation, and what Garrison called “Odd Sects” (not to be confused with “odd sex”!) that included a cast of characters scattered not only across JFK assassination lore, but also the funky field of ufology.

Goddess only knows how Garrison first saddled up on this “Odd Sects” hobby horse, but there’s a good […]
Tom Jackson over at RAWIllumination.net recently posted “More wild JFK probe information from Adam Gorightly” which further fleshed out my Historia Discordia offering “The Raymond Broshears Files Part 1,” and, in specific, Broshears association with Rev. Billy James Hargis, who during the 60s and early-70s operated a ministry called the Christian Crusade. Rev. Broshears—as I […]
For some time now I’d been planning a multi-part series on Reverend Raymond Broshears, one of more colorful characters (among a clown car of colorful characters) who careened headfirst into Kerry Thornley, and the Garrison investigation. A deep dive into Rev. Broshears branches off in a number of directions, including the
“Deep diving back into the New Orleans underbelly with noted author and crackpot historian, Adam Gorightly! We discuss his multipart article on the antics and associations of the shotgun toting Pastor himself.” Source: The Lone Gunman Podcast More info on Rev. Raymond Broshears.
Fred Litkin, author of On The Trail of Delusion: Jim Garrison: The Great Accuser, which details the Garrison investigation boondoggle, has been busy of late unearthing rare audio that overlaps with some of the material you’ll find here on Historia Discordia. One of these gems is a YouTube video (as above, so below) of the […]
