This is the FOURTH and final update to the segment from the film ‘Jacob Prasch is Witchfinder General’ ( vimeo.com/313843746 ) which initially listed the 9 people Jacob Prasch has demanded debate him (debates of course which never happened).
After it was released more ’bouts’ were uncovered, swelling the size of the now standalone clip:
In this edition, after Prasch lists all the people he secretly doesn’t want to debate but says he wants to for the sake of the steady flow of narcissistic supply the demands give him, Prasch lists 2 people from the Toronto Vineyard nonsense, but immediately finds himself being heckled by a member of the audience causing Prasch -in the midst of calling for public debates- to demand that this opponent depart the building, whilst plying him with the perfectly stupid claim that after his talk people are welcome to debate. It’s a bit hard to debate someone when you just had them thrown out the building! But that is the Prasch strategy in action, to call for debate, then do everything possible to undermine the chances of being questioned.
If you think about it, if Prasch had actually debated some of these 56 people, he’d have realised he isn’t right about everything (or right about much, even), and may have been humbled, but since he has avoided it, he has steadily bricked himself inside his ivory tower (or echo chamber), only allowing in the people who agree with him, thus resulting in him becoming the leader of his own personality cult.
The ’bout’ list now is:
Dr. Michael Brown
Rabbi Abraham Finkelstein
Rabbi Shmuel Arkush
Dr. Thomas Ice
Rabbi Shmuel “Shmuley” Boteach
I can’t fit any more names on the screen so I figure this is the natural end to this bit of research, but if you do stumble upon any other person Prasch has demanded to debate him, then please post a link to the YouTube video in the comments section below.
