Monday is a day off for me.
I was holding the couch down and surfing the TV for most of the morning. TV is something I so rarely do anymore, unless it is a sporting event. Most times I am streaming either Netflix or my own mp.4 movie collection via Apple TV.
Anyway, it goes without saying that daytime TV is perhaps one of the more egregious things ever to attack the American public. It’s right up there with King Kong and Tuberculosis.
Imagine my surprise when I found Jim Bakker, that grand old swindler of some note, back on the TV. The accounting and sexual scandal that led to the destruction of his “prosperity theology”-based evangelical empire – with Christian theme park – put him in prison for five years on fraud charges. He still owes the IRS $6 million dollars.
And this fucker is back on TV?
It makes my head hurt that people are stupid enough to finance this douche. Today he was selling solar chargers and freeze dried food that had a 25 year shelf live for $1000 dollar memberships to his club, or whatever it is.
So in an effort to make me feel better, let’s revisit one of my favorite all time You Tube mashups starring Miami, Florida, preacher/pimp and proponent of prosperity theology, Robert Tilton, simply entitled, “The Farting Preacher.”
