A Cult with ukuleles

Benjamin Purnell, whom the Pittsburgh Press in 13 May 1923 described as a ‘long-haired, long-bearded old fox’, was the leader of a religious cult. Purnell claimed to have been the younger brother of Jesus Christ and that Purnell could give his followers immortality on earth. But in the mean time, he allegedly liked to keep the younger girls of the community in his own house. A nasty piece of work, he was.

Never the less, the community did have a popular ukulele band.
