At least twice a day someone inputs ‘was/is tiny tim satanic’ into my blog’s search bar.

Let me set the record straight: No. No, he was not.
Tiny Tim was the son of a Polish Jew and a Lebanese Catholic. He lived his entire life as an adherent of the Judeo-Christian God. He was, however, an eccentric public figure; you can read about some of his stranger exploits here.
