    I used to watch Robert Tilton when I was younger and more religious. At one point, a scandal erupted when an old friend of Tilton’s claimed that he was actually an atheist, and that he used to brag about how he was going to dupe people with fake preaching. If I recall, the scandal also involved someone finding thousands of prayer requests still unopened in his trash. Tilton preached “seed-faith,” which basically meant planting a seed by sending Tilton money.

    They are all in it for the money. Joel Osteen had over $600.000 stolen from the safe at the church (one weekends take). But it was insured. Come on. Put the $600k in his pocket got the insurance $600K and put that in as well. That is $30 million a year all tax free because the big head in the sky talks directly to him. We are without a doubt the dumbest group as a whole on the planet. This religious fervor that is getting worse in this country can only be cured by a Zombie attack taking out all the ministers, priests, cardinals, etc. Then for dessert go after all the politicians from local, state to federal. Good snacking there for all

    The lower clip shows ultra-right GOP totally crazy candidate, Susanne Atanus of Illinois. She is receiveing her “Call from God” as the blinding light renders her senseless. He tells her that teh Gay have made him angry. He is punishing the US with AIDS, tornadoes, autism and dementia. To demonstrate, he makes an example of her, leaving her completley demented. He also leaves his mark on her head (aka male pattern baldness). http://article.wn.com/view/2014/03/20/Susanne_Atanus_unelectable_GOP_candidate_wins_primary_allege/

    I watched that with my mouth hanging open. I’ve heard that expression, but I never realized someone could actually do that. What’s wrong with those people?

    Looks like Benny Hinn. I would watch him just for grins. He had the worst comb-over of anyone I have ever seen. Also, he was a fraud and in it just for the money. :-)

    Was this a Tea Party convention?
