    Sincerity, whatever your religion, is less of an offense to god than the complete cynicism of stealing from true believers. You didn't just take their money, you stole their faith and you mocked scripture by turning it into a marketing pitch.

    This kind of thing turns people away from God. Seems like a way bigger threat to Christians than gay weddings.
    Just because you haven't heard them speak up against scam religions doesn't mean they don't speak up against scam religions.

    They just don't go on national TV and say it.

    Or beg for money while doing it.

    They preach to their audience.

    They keep a lower profile...

    Really.

    So what you're saying is that there aren't any honest televangelists.

    No, that is not what I am saying.

    If I were saying that, I would have said that.

    Jesus warned of wolves among the sheep. The Apostle Paul wrote about false brethren in the church. They've always existed. You're preaching to the choir. Once when I was playing in a gospel band years ago when Reagan was President, the evangelist that was preaching said that President Reagan was the antichrist because he had 6 letters in each name, Ronald Wilson Reagan. No kidding.

    I remember seeing signs to that effect in the early to mid-80s. Thought it was funny, but of course did not take it seriously.

    I like it when they root for the end times to come so they can be welcomed home by God but also push for the buying of guns and ammo to protect yourself from the rioters during the end of the world.

    So when you see a wolf, are you supposed to keep quiet? Or scream "wolf" at the top of your lungs?

    Yeah, my neighbors just put solar panels on their roof and buy enough carbon credits every year to prevent the end-o-times.

    I've been trying to decide if I was a sheep or a goat, but maybe I'm a wolf, or shepherd.

    I get a different answer from everyone I ask, and apparently my self assessment is always wrong.
