Televangelists and Their Private Jets

Almighty God sure doesn't need a private jet, but these gaudy hucksters sure do!

Kenneth Copeland defended his fleet of private jets by essentially saying "I need to feel safe from all the liquored-up demons who fly coach!"

Joyce Meyer (she of the bad plastic surgery and the gold-plated office toilet) claims she needs to be able to instantly jet off to wherever the Spirit calls her.

Joel Osteen (who locked his church gates to keep out hurricane victims) got some PPP loans to offset the fueling costs of his private A319 - the same model of plane you might fly from Chicago to Los Angeles.

Creflo Dollar (who demanded his flock buy him a $65 million Gulfstream to replace the one his wife mainly uses to go shopping in NYC and Paris) said anyone who got between him and his new jet was a tool of Satanica!

Who gives money to these cretins? What kind of uniforms do they make the cabin crews wear?

They don't need those private jets.

They just THINK they need the jets.

The prosperity gospel ain't the real gospel

Of course the media would rather cover these morons than than sincere pastors who don't live lives of the rich and famous. All poor people religious and secular are banned from being mentioned in the press.

I don't begrudge them their private jets as long as they aren't preaching everybody else are sinners for wanting private jets too.

Tax them all into the poor house.

Because they aren’t taxed on their income, we all pay for those private jets

Ugh. My mother lives on Social Security but still pays her tithes to Osteen’s church. $300 a month, which is a lot for her. I supplement her income. I helped buy his damn jets.

R6 Tithing is one of the oldest large-scale grifts.

Osteen is the worst and yes, he does look like he's smelling cookies.

God told me to tell you to give me all your money.

[quote] Who gives money to these cretins?

Cretins with money to give, and gullible fools who think giving money to crooked fake Holy men will buy them passage into Heaven one day.

To be totally honest, I'd venture to say that 95+% of the people who give money to these scumbags are people who can little afford to give money to anyone. But with a population of over 330 million it only takes a small donation from a small percentage of the population to make all these pieces of shit fabulously rich.

What about our fabulous gold toilets, delivered from God?

That closeted dyke Joyce Meyer has her own Gulfstream.

Joyce Meyer has four children. I doubt she’s a dyke.

She sure looks and sounds like one
