From the always-in-denial (and usually painfully silly, and often embarrassingly spelling- and punctuation-challenged) Christian Post, which implies that 1) Thomas Kinkade was a righteous True Christian™ for most of his life (so it doesn’t matter how hypocritical his appalling behavior was toward the end of his days), and 2) Kinkade’s brother thinks critics of the Kinkade Kitsch Factory led to his “downfall” (which could mean those of us provoked to dry heaves at the sight of his abortive works of “art” drove him to drink and/or to death):
… Now following the painters [sic] death, a new report has surfaced that Kinkade had been drinking the night before his passing.
The new rumors have sparked controversy among those in the Christian world who admonished his drunken behavior after the painter had openly referred to himself as Christian. …
However, Kinkade appeared to have lived a more righteous exitence [sic] for most of his life before having faced financial difficulty and harsh criticism. Kinkade contributed to many charitable causes during the peak of his career, including helping the Salvation Army after the 9/11 attacks and serving as a spokesperson for the Make-a-Wish Foundation.
Kikade’s [sic] brother stated that part of the painters [sic] downfall came as a result of harsh critics.
“As much as he said it didn’t bother him, in his heart deep down inside it would sadden him that people would criticize so hatefully his work and his vision when people didn’t understand him,” Patrick Kinkade told Mercury New [sic].
