Carl Curtis McIntire, Jr. (May 17, 1906 – March 19, 2002) was an American fundamentalist Presbyterian who founded the Bible Presbyterian Church in Collingswood after he decided that the Presbyterian church he was previously a part of was not sufficiently opposed to the Catholic church.[1]

McIntire was known as a anti-communist during the Cold War who actively supported the United States Military.[2]

Carl McIntire was responsible for having his church members hand out anti-Catholic pamphlets and blasting the Catholic church, calling it the "Whore of Babylon". He's probably best known by Collingswood residents for sailing in a ship beyond the NJ coast line limit to legally continue his radio talk, gaining him the nickname "Wacky Macky".
