Conservative firebrand Bob Enyart, pastor and indelible talk show host of Denver Bible Church, has died of COVID-19, his radio co-host announced on Facebook on Monday.
“Bob Enyart was the smartest and without question the smartest man,” Fred Williams, co-host of the Real Science radio show, said in a post.
He said on his website that Enyart and his wife refused the vaccine because of concerns about miscarriage.
In October, Enyart successfully sued the state over mask mandates and capacity limits in churches, a rare legal victory against a broad public health mandate established during the pandemic.
Pushing the limits never bothered Enyart.
According to a 1999 Westward profile, he once traveled to New Zealand with the “Clinton is a rapist” banner for the sole purpose of being arrested.
As Westward reports, on his old TV show, Bob Enyart Live, the host “would gleefully read about AIDS victims” while the Queen cranks out ‘Another One Bites the Dust’.
The show’s website says that Enyart has broadcast more than 6,000 radio and TV shows in 80 cities from Honolulu to Orlando, Fla. He claims to be in the top 5% of all authors for book and video sales.
Enyart also served as a spokesperson for the American Right to Life, which bills itself as “the abolitionist wing of the pro-life movement”.
He served as the pastor of the Denver Bible Church from 2000, according to his biography.
Before entering the life of a pastor and talk show host, Enyart designed software for Army helicopters and worked as a computer analyst for Microsoft, he says on his show’s website.
“Heaven’s gain has left a huge hole here on earth,” Williams wrote. “Bob’s everlasting legacy will live on with the treasure he left behind.”
