The Philadelphia Ruminator
The Philadelphia Remnant is another of the lesser-known contenders. Produced by Don Billingsley, famous in COG history as the driver of the vehicle which killed passenger Richard David Armstrong, the 42-page January-March issue oozes with references to Herb, the late lamented all-wise one.
The feature article has been disinterred from a 1957 Good News, Why America is Cursed! by (who else?) the high and herbal one himself. Don's long editorial notes the thirtieth anniversary of Herb's death and announces that he was the Third Elijah (the other two were John the Baptist and, fairly obviously, Elijah himself). Lots of pictures of the End Time Elijah too.
There's an article about Lake Erie and how we'll all have clean water in the world tomorrow, and another about school violence (illustrated with a black kid holding a gun, hewing to the stereotypes).
Don's rag doesn't advertise its circulation, but we're probably on very safe grounds assuming it doesn't have one as there doesn't seem to actually be a hard copy option. Oh well, no matter, a virtual magazine apparently still ticks all the boxes; and Don is in good company here (notably COGWA's Discern.)
