Does anyone watch that religious crap on Sunday mornings?

I was clicking through the channels this morning, looking for any new information on the hopeful crucifixion of Tom DeLay, and channel after channel after channel was some screaming lunatic trying to persuade you to see the light. Or maybe they spoke in softer tones, yet stared at the camera pleadingly, beseeching the viewer to come to the light -- to find Christ.

There were all kinds of these religious peddlers. Tall ones, short ones, fat ones, old ones, young ones, black ones, yellow ones (ok, no yellow ones, but I was just rolling along) brown ones, burned ones (one guy) and a few nuns were tossed in as well.

Some of them asked for money. Some of them seemed content to have your attention.

I have a simple question: Does anyone watch this ****? Who?

I know there's going to be a few smart asses in the crowd that say, "Well, you were watching it, Gus"

Not true, I wasn't really watching the crap, but merely driving by the carnival.

Are there any A2Kers who watch this stuff? Please step forward and identify yourself.

I'm not going to make fun of you or anything -- I just need to know -- I HAVE to know -- who watches this crap?

I had you pegged as one of the flock, Angelique. I'm not sure why, but when I stopped for a second on the burned guy's program I had an image of you, perched on the edge of your couch, glassy-eyed, fingers fervently working the rosary beads, as you muttered...."must send money....must send money"

LOL No, I don't believe in god, and I don't belong to any religion. I have said that before. LOL You don't need god or religion to be a good person. :wink:

I used to like the guy who offered a prayer cloth for a fee, that you could drape over your TV in order to receive God's blessings/healing thru God's servant (him). I believe his slogan was "There will be pie in the sky by and by" and he also preached that God showed his love to the faithful by making them rich.

Folks, I couldn't make that stuff up, but it does make me laugh

Ok, you said you weren't going to make fun. I am going to believe you and say, yes. I do watch some of these TV evangelist shows.

However, I watch the ones I feel are in line with my personal beliefs.

My very favorite of all is Jessie Duplantis. He is a minister in New Orleans. He used to be a drug-addicted, alcoholic, harley riding hoodlum. Those are his words and not mine. He does not ask for money. He gives you his testimony and tells you that you are the one that must decide. And he will keep you in stiches! He is, by far, one of the best preachers I have ever had the pleasure of listening to.

I also like Kenneth Copeland. There are many I do not watch. It is always a matter of discernment. We are supposed to use our discernment when deciding which spiritual leaders to follow.

I never watch that stuff on TV on Sunday mornings (or any other morning).

I am in Church on Sunday morning listening to real preachers who do not ask for money.

Hi Intrepid!

How are you doing today?

I would also like to add that I don't watch them on Sunday mornings as I too am in Church!

I watch Jessie Duplantis on Wednesday night!

Oh, how do I miss Tammy Fae Baker, and her husband's tearful,
truly Oscar worthy performance - not to be underscored by
an utter remorseful Jimmy Swaggert whose sins with the
local prostitutes were miraculously forgiven by.....aehm, yeah
by whom actually?

Indirectly they all do (ask for money)!

And so does the Red Cross, the Salvation Army, etc. They all have to pay the bills. The point is, what is the money used for? If the money is used for the correct purpose then what is the harm? The harm is when the money is used to promote personal gain and not the intended mission.

I agree Momma Angel, as long as you know what the money
is used for, and it is used for a cause you support, then there is
no harm done, regardless of the institution.

Gus, I have to confess. I don't hold my head up for hours afterward, but, well, since you aked and I am basically an honest person, I have to say it right out. I am not one to beat about the bush ordinarily, but you have me on the defensive here. If I go one way, I earn the Christian's scorn. Go the other, and Gus and the fellers will rib me. I have to say, oh, mother of pearl, I am one hundred percent not guilty of watching those shows.

Edgar,

Why would you say that you would earn the Christian's scorn?

I've caught Joel whathisname a couple times. I'm usually in church on Sunday mornings and for the most part I practice insta-scroll past any evangalist on TV.
