George Hunter White, part 1: “Actually, a Heretic”

Few people seem to be so lucky as to discover their true purpose in life, and even fewer seem tenacious enough to truly dedicate their entire lives to that purpose. In that regard, George Hunter White may have been the luckiest, most tenacious man to ever live. White’s life was one of lies, drugs, sex, manipulation, coercion, extortion, violence, and murder. And when he reached the end of his life, he was long considered a hero by many.
