Michael Woroniecki visited the UMass Amherst campus this passed fall. He said he has been coming to the campus for about 15 years.
Last year, the same man had been drawing a crowd, eccentrically preaching about God and Jesus.
On this last visit, Woroniecki was with his family, peacefully holding signs and handing out pamphlets, raising awareness about Jesus.
Okay, so who is Woroniecki?
Woroniecki is believed to be the preacher to have influenced Andrea Yates to kill her children in June 2001. (I didn’t know this until after I talked to him.)
He said he’s not part of any cult. He doesn’t believe in the church. He doesn’t participate in politics. Him and his family travel the world in a trailer, peacefully preaching for Jesus.
Woroniecki’s Wikipedia is quite interesting. It currently gives the most detailed account of his life, whether the information is true or not.
If you Google Woroniecki, an abundance of articles and Web sites come up.
MrRangerTom‘s YouTube channel displays the videos of a reverse fanatic. He has numerous video posts ridiculing and making fun of Woroniecki. But, in these short films are clips of Woroniecki preaching straight from the bible.
On the day Woroniecki was on the UMass campus, he was relatively calm, unlike other reports and video clips posted online.
