Televangelists: Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (HBO)

  • U.S. tax law allows television preachers to get away with almost anything. We know this from personal experience.
    Our Lady of Perpetual Exemption will not be able to accept donations from Church supporters from the states of Mississippi, Nevada, Pennsylvania, or South Carolina. We apologize for any inconvenience.

    Im fine with people like that. They humiliate themselves and make dumb people poorer. People who believe what they are saying deserve no money and no place in any modern society.

    1 Timothy 6:10: For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
    So.... about those "seed donations".... something also about "false prophets" or something.... apparently the church has proved Jacques Abbadie wrong, and you CAN fool all of these people all of the time.

    The bible actually has a whole chapter on this. Then again, people are dumb and we are now talking about these criminals. Think about those people who believed and gave "donations." i am more worried about the people giving money. Ha.

    If your God intervenes in the world, he lets/makes children have bone cancer and does nothing. If your God did not intervene, why... then what use is He? Why does He demand worship so jealously? Look after your children folks and good night.

    A friend of mine actually sent a dollar in the mail to John Oliver's church back in the day. She got back a letter which among other things included a paper with (allegedly) the outline of John Oliver's buttocks, with the text "Sit on this and think about what you've done!", and a notification that he forwarded the dollar donation to Doctors Without Borders.

    Wanda Oliver, thanks for being such a good sport XD

    Whether you are religious or not, it makes sense that we should help one another, and that people with cancer should be able to go to the doctor, not run to some money grubber Christ would have chucked out of the temple.
    "Seed".. riiiight...
    Give it to a charitable organization that *actually* helps people if you have it to spare.. such as maybe St Jude's or the Red Cross.
    If you don't have money, give some of your time. Read a book to a kid.. hold a door open for someone who has their hands full.. make a blanket for someone undergoing chemo. Donate hair to locks-for-love.. chat with someone who normally smiles when they get home but that you never got the time to talk to.. say hello.. whatever you can do that doesn't negativity impact your life and livelihood.
    It won't become a tree of money for you to pluck (spoiler: neither will money you sent to quacks) and it won't make your problems disappear, but it might just make your life more meaningful, you a happier person, and puts your problems into perspective..

  • Accidental Relevance

    The first time my wife an I filed our taxes, with a very well known service, we received a refund which was literally a God send. But shortly after returning back to our cheapest apartment in the worst part of town, two nicely dressed men appeared at our door selling, bible books. And wouldn't you know, the price for the books was to the penny the amount of our refund. A sign from God! Due to my upbringing in the church I bought the ruse with barely a second thought. We were eighteen years old, newly married and it was obvious we were as poor as dirt. And they took our money.

    Tilton and Copeland are both from Tulsa Oklahoma. There is no way you can imagine how surreal it is to live where people support this kind of thing so wholeheartedly. The response to any post on Facebook is prayers and thoughts and prayers. Sometimes two pages of nothing else. Virtually any person who claims to be Christian is elected to office without question.

      I almost entirely agree with you but as a former Christian I can tell you, these people are completely brainwashed, I’m not exaggerating, a was no better than them s few years ago and ironically it was the over bearing strictness and beatings from my Jesus crazy parents that got me away from it.

    After losing my partner to cancer I was so mad at Gloria Copeland. To deny people the extra time they could have with loved ones just to make money sickens me to the bottom of my stomach.
    I would say I hope she gets something and tries to get her religion to heal her and fails, but I would not even put that upon her.

    Hey americans, i am an ortodox and i have bad news for you: you have absolutely no clue as to how religion works. And there is no "seed money" in christianity, good deeds or money are not financial investments because God is not a bank !!! If you give people money solely on the basis that God will pay you "interest" on your "investment" you are not a christian, you are an idiot.
