The Reverend Floyd T. Shaffer, is a clown for Christ, as part of the Clown Ministry. One of the best known "religious clowns" in the United States, Floyd started clowning in 1969, at the height of the counter-culture movement. He was a Lutheran minister when he first took to clowning, and has actively encouraged others to do the same, with books like his Clown Ministry. He founded Faith and Fantasy, nondenominational clown ministry, which taught students how to choose their clown names and characters, put on make-up and perform. There are students like John Garrett and his wife, who become "Frank and Sense," a sad clown, and his wife becomes "Ariana Springtime" a happy clown.
Apparently the Clown Ministry and Fath and Fantasy, lasted well into the 90s. It must have produced dozens of creepy clowns for Christ over the years. Where they are? Who knows! But there is my favourite clowns for Christ, I came across, not because of Rubbish clown names, or their quite frankly scary make-up (even for clowns). No for their gimmick, or Skipper, the only gospel monkey known. There are levels of wrong, in all of that, to weird to comprehend.
