I use to love watching Fantasy Island. If memory serves it was shown every Saturday night right after The Love Boat. You remember the deal, right? Mr. Roarke would create a fantasy and his sidekick Tattoo would assist him. It seemed so real to the various guests on the island but we all knew it was fantasy, right?
I was crushed when the show was canceled but fortunately for me (and you dear reader) it seems a couple of folks have decided to reprise the roles of Mr. Roarke and Tattoo in order to supply us with a little bit of entertainment.
Cue the announcer;
“In a land far away (Billings Montana) Mr. Roarke (Phil Perkins), highly upset about the new comments policy our guest (Phil Naessens) has decided to enact (source) and the tongue lashing he (Perkins) received (source) has set out to re-create reality (source) by claiming, among other things, that our guest defends paying false teachers. Roarke’s loyal sidekick Tattoo (Tim Frere Smith) has entered into the picture with a few fantasies of his own.
Welcome to Fantasy Island!!!”
Tim Frere Smith: “Da plane boss”! “Da Plane”!!
Phil Perkins: Our fantasy today Tattoo is that Phil Naessens defends paying false teachers! We’ll also be adding new realities in order to defame our guest. It’s up to our guest to prove his innocence rather then for us to prove his guilt. Let’s see how Naessens handles this adventure as he hasn’t the foggiest idea what we will dream up next!
The plot thickens as Tattoo has emerged from his villa to encourage his beloved boss!
Tim Frere Smith: I feel unfortunately that he has taken a role he is not prepared or ready for, for many reasons I chalk it up to him still working through issues of being a big part of in his past life of something he is opposing now. However, there is more left in my opinion in PHil Naasen’s that he needs to shed of his past life in the world of the heresy faith movement of which I believe he said he made money from and preached.,(source)
Phil Perkins: I should have been more discerning Tattoo! (source)
Phil Naessens: Which issues am I “working through” due to my past life? Care to share? What do I need to shed Tattoo? How many years did I preach some of the WoF prosperity message? What was my main message? When did I begin? When did I stop? How many years before I ever said another word about it publicly? What were the circumstances surrounding my departure? Since you seem to know so much about my “past life”, enough so to make an opinion publicly, do share and please be SPECIFIC. It’s all here at TT but I’m not going to help you find it. This would be called research Tattoo.
Our hosts continue their fantasies…….
Phil Perkins: Tattoo, after giving the whole thing some thought, I don’t think Naessens is just stupid. There’s a lot of that, but he’s really pretty sinful. The thing about threatening lawsuits is unbiblical and he knows all that. (source)
Phil Naessens: Why Mr. Roarke, I went to you as Tattoo claimed to me that he was spiritually accountable to you. You said that was incorrect and I had to get some relief from Tattoo’s anger filled defamatory rant which fortunately for him he deleted. Oh, BTW. What would the reformers say about a man claiming to be a Christian forsaking the assembly for 30 years Mr. Roarke? You know all that right?
Our main characters go to sleep dreaming up more fantasies and when they awaken they add this to the script.
Tim Frere Smith: Hey boss, Lastly, Phil Naessen’s has said to be he has a CAREER TO protect!! (source)
Phil Perkins: Career to protect? That tells us what he’s about, huh, Tattoo? Quite opposite of what he pretends. (source)
Phil Naessens: How about a link like this one here Tattoo? I don’t want to be associated with Daniel Chew. See this comment here for a little background. While you’re at it Tattoo please ask Mr. Roarke why he covers the sin of the same person Chew was protecting? Mr. Roarke is right about one thing. He really should be more discerning before accepting your statements of fact AS fact Tattoo.
Our hosts continue their fantasy……
Tim Frere Smith: Hey Boss, to me personally that shows MOTIVE why one wants to defend heresy..because CAREERS PROTECT the messenger not the MESSAGE!! That say’s it all for me!! Careers are for the compromised and those who are not fit to endure to the end!! (source)
Phil Perkins: Some career, too. He is studying under a rabbi, teaching at a Greek Orthodox school and claiming to be biblically orthodox. That’s not a career; that’s a mental menagerie. I don’t think he’s all that smart. This explains why he goes from one side to another all the time. (source)
Phil Naessens: Please show me where I have ever defended heresy Tattoo? Be specific Tattoo. Opinions aren’t flying here. Cite and source and in context please! Now that the context of what I said regarding “career to protect” has been established and your bash Phil Naessens at all costs party has been exposed for what it is, I’d say you and Mr. Roarke have some repenting to do. Let’s see just how smart your boss really is Tattoo. He thinks he’s very smart but then again, it is Fantasy Island, right?
And that concludes today’s episode of Fantasy Island! Will Tattoo and Mr. Roarke repent of their sins? Will they continue in their 9th Commandment breaking? Will our host’s continue in their bash fest with misrepresentations based on out of context quotes and complete fabrications?
Stay tuned…………..I’m off to my Hebrew lesson with my Messianic Rabbi, who, because he doesn’t eat pork, misses out on this amazing gift from God!!!
