A Baton Rouge man who subscribes to the conspiracy theory that the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting was a hoax also believes a Palestinian Jew rose from the dead over 2,000 years ago.
Self-described “devout Christian” Heath Ferrate frequently posts to social media articles claiming no one was actually killed in the 2012 mass shooting perpetrated by Adam Lanza.
The 46-year-old software designer, who fervently believes Jesus of Nazareth ascended into heaven after walking around for over a month subsequent to rising from the dead three days after he was crucified, asserts that the entire Sandy Hook tragedy was staged, and that the families of the 20 children and six staff members who were killed are actually “crisis actors.”
“Sandy Hook was nothing more than a false flag perpetrated by the federal government in order to fool Americans into voluntarily giving up their guns,” said Ferrate, a firm believer that the Bible is the literal, inspired word of an invisible being who created and controls the universe.
People who take media accounts of the Sandy Hook massacre at face value are “sheeple,” according to the grandfather who believes Jesus of Nazareth was born of a virgin, walked on water, turned water into wine, and brought back to life a man who had been dead for four days.
To back up his claims that Sandy Hook was a hoax, Ferrate points to what he calls “inconsistencies” in the evidence, as well as “recycling” of crisis actors in other tragedies, like the recent shooting at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, OR.
Additionally, Ferrate believes that, despite their significant variances in accounting the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth, the four Gospels of the Bible are all 100% true.
“If you want me to believe that some crazy guy killed a bunch of innocent children in a school, where are the pictures of the bodies? You know why you don’t see pictures of the bodies? Because there were no bodies,” said Ferrate, who annually celebrates the discovery of an empty tomb every Easter.
