Pat Robertson is a character in South Park who is 'a key member of the Christian Broadcasting Channel, Pat Robertson is a former minister and presidential candidate'
Pat Robertson is also a character in The Simpsons 'He is one of the many people on "Ned's List of Laudable Lefties".'
So there is definitely comedy in the air around these swindlers. Even so, I was surprised to see this on that bastion of sense, the Christian News Network:
Does this man have no shame? I guess not. Nor does he have much respect given to him by the same publication as it begins its story..
False teacher and prosperity preacher Jesse Duplantis is now asking his disciples for money to buy a jet that costs $54 million “so we can go anywhere in the world in one stop.”Wow, no punches pulled here then. Don't worry though, MSN.com, CBS News and the LA Times also derided the televangelist.
Louisiana televangelist seeks donations for $54M private jet: report
Evangelist who wants $54M jet says "Jesus wouldn't be riding a donkey"
Televangelist wants his followers to pay for a $54-million private jet. It would be his fourth plane
Apparently this chap preaches the 'prosperity gospel', which says God shows favor by rewarding the faithful with earthly riches. Giving money to pastors and their ministries, leaders say, is a sort of investment.
So that's nice. He is not like the Preacher I enjoy watching on TV:
Somehow I don't think we'll be making any donations to Jesse Duplantis any time soon.
