    A televangelist wants his followers his fourth plane: $54 Million

    They call this "Christianity"...

    A televangelist wants his followers to pay for a $54 million private jet. It’s his fourth plane.
    If Jesus were to descend from heaven and physically set foot on 21st-century Earth, prosperity gospel televangelist Jesse Duplantis told his followers, the Redeemer would probably take a pass on riding on the back of a donkey: “He’d be on an airplane preaching the gospel all over the world.”

    And Duplantis thinks the Light of the World wouldn’t exactly settle for 30 inches of legroom or getting patted down by TSA.

    Why would He choose anything less than the Falcon 7X, a private jet that nears the sound barrier but also has noise-limiting acoustic technology, a Bluetooth-enabled entertainment center and an optional in-flight shower?

    Duplantis, saying he needs about $54 million to help him efficiently spread the gospel to as many people as possible, has asked the Lord — and hundreds of thousands of hopefully deep-pocketed followers across the world — for just such a plane.

    He is the latest aircraft-seeking preacher to draw raised eyebrows and outright condemnation from critics who say asking for a multimillion-dollar luxury jet is not exactly what Jesus meant when he said “store up for yourself treasures in heaven.”

    […]

    He and Duplantis defended their use of private jets in a widely shared — and mocked — YouTube video.

    “The world is in such a shape, we can’t get there without this,” Copeland said of private aircraft. “We’ve got to have this. The mess that the airlines are in today I would have to stop, I’m being very conservative, at least 75 to 80, more like 90 percent of what we’re doing because you can’t get there from here.”

    “That’s why we’re on that airplane,” he said. “We can talk to God.”

    Copeland said he used to travel with faith-healing prosperity preacher Oral Roberts, who flew commercial, and it “got to the place where it was agitating his spirit. People coming up to him. He had become famous. And they wanting him to pray for them and all that.

    “You can’t manage that today. This dope-filled world. And get in a long tube with a bunch of demons. And it’s deadly.”

    Just like the Russian Orthodox Patriarch Kirill, who preaches modesty and austerity at Russians... from a golden throne


    He also has lots of personal jets for his use

    including a government Il-96 from the special "Russia" squadron, which also oversees Putin's two jets and Medvedev's one


    Also, two yachts

    and palaces, complete with Cossack guards

    lol

    Oh, yeah, he is REAL modest and austere...

    He even gets FSO (Secret Service) protection, like Putin and Medvedev, like he is number three official in Russia now


    This is what happens when a religious body is allowed to spread its authority unchecked over a country...
