A pair of conspiracy theorists who do not believe last November’s massacre at a Texas church ever took place have been involved in a confrontation with the senior pastor. First Baptist Sutherland Springs leader Frank Pomeroy lost his daughter Annabelle in the mass shooting, that claimed the lives of 26 others including an unborn child.
Now, there is no doubt that these “false flag hoaxsters” are utterly deluded, and you will find their words toward Pastor Pomeroy infuriating and despicable. But just watch how this church leader, still grieving the loss of his own daughter and his congregants, responds with nothing but bold declaration and a re-stating of the truth. It is absolutely staggering.
“I go by Sidethorn and this is conspiracy Granny,” one of the hoaxsters told VICE Selects. “And what we do is we go to these false flag hoaxes and we prove them wrong. This story is a false narrative – fake, never happened,” he said of the Sutherland Springs massacre.
Now, as Pastor Frank Pomeroy leads an initiative to rebuild his church community, this bold preacher is taking action to keep these sick individuals off his property.
“The fact that he calls victims and harrasses people who lost their daughters, their moms, their dads, their grandmothers – I just can’t explain why any human being would be this way,” Frank explained to VICE News.
The pair of conspiracy theorists claims they are offering $100,000 to anyone who can prove that the attack took place on this small town Texas church. They claim that there have been many of these so-called “false flag operations” – where they say crisis actors are utilized by law enforcement agencies such as the FBI to spin a “false narrative.”
“A scripted play. That’s exactly what every one of them are. They’re scripted,” Sidethorn added. “It’s not possible for them to prove a single one that we’ve looked into.”
Now, there are several “debunker’s” – those who spend hours picking through the absurd conspiracy theories of people like Sidethorn, and unequivocally proving them fictitious. “Any shooting that gathers media attention likewise gathers the attention of a group of conspiracy theorists. They will say ‘this shooting is fake, everyone is a crisis actor, and it’s a FEMA homeland security drill, put on to take our rights,” one false flag debunker told VICE.
Last November, a gunman killed 26 people at a church in Sutherland Springs, Texas.These two "false flag" hoaxers claim that it never happened.

“They lie about death certificates. You can order every death certificate. They would rather say you can’t get these death certificates, because it would go against what they are pushing.”
VICE News caught the extraordinary moment Pastor Frank Pomeroy personally confronted Sidethorn and Conspiracy Granny on his church property. Little did the hoaxters know that Frank was actually issuing a verbal warning to them so that he could file a report with the police and keep these deranged individuals away from his flock.
“I’ve been waiting on this day so I can tell you that y’all are not welcome on my property,” Frank said as the two men shook hands. “This is the pastor of the church, guys. The main player in this charade,” sneered Sidethorn.
“I’ve already had to deal with one person that didn’t have a full grasp on reality, and we’re scared to deal with another person that doesn’t have a grasp on reality,” Frank responded.
When the conspiracy theorist suggested the pastor take a polygraph test for $100,000, Frank responded, “I don’t think you have $5.”
“You are no different than the man who came and shot this up,” Pomeroy continued. At this point, the hoaxers got angry and begin calling him all sorts of expletives. “You’re a sissy with a big mouth,” Frank says calmly.
“The only way I could get a trespassing warning placed against him was I had to formally warn him by voice,” Frank explained. “I had to engage with him. For the last month we have been trying to catch him and him not see us coming. Because he would run if he knew we were coming. I am supposing that he did not realize it was me inside the vehicle that he walked up by, and I was able to get out and engage him and tell him he was no longer welcome on the property. From there he just got loud and degrading.”
Still, the man continued to rail at Frank, telling him he had no evidence for his own daughter’s existence.
“You’re saying my daughter wasn’t born?” Frank replied. “Where is she man? That wasn’t your daughter, you’re an actor!” the despicable hoaxster replied. At this point, you would imagine Frank absolutely losing it. But somehow, he stayed calm – simply looking to the sky in disbelief. You can only conclude that this was the power of God working through him.
“See this, right here, shows you are not even remotely close to reality,” Frank stated.
Though Pomeroy is clearly able to keep his emotions under wraps, he said it is excruciatingly difficult when such a disgusting individual is taunting him about his deceased daughter.
“There was a day when I was younger, it would have been a lot easier to fight, especially with the way he was baiting. That’s exactly what he wanted me to do. He wanted that confrontation. Why give him what he wants. I’ve had the anger and the hate mode in my life,” Frank explained, saying that it never really helps to lash out at these people.
So, Frank has vowed to lean on the Lord even through this most excruciating attack. The fact that he is able to do this given the tragedy that he and his church family have endured is absolutely astonishing.
“What brings peace being able to step back and just rely on the Lord to give me the wherewithal to do what I need to do,” he said.
Eventually, Sidethorn and Conspiracy Granny were detained by the police on a charge of “criminal trespassing.”
Do pray for Frank, his family, and the entire Sutherland Springs church community as they continue to recover.
