Televangelist Charlatans

There are some people who realize that religion is a ruse but still support one or two televangelistic charlatans based on their ability to motivate audiences.

If these guys were who they profess to be, they would be speaking out loudly against War. They would have protested vehemently when the first bomb dropped in Iraq after 9/11.

They would have screamed at the top of their lungs to find out what really occurred on Sept 11, 2001. He may touch on the ills of war in a sermon to his sycophantic flock, that's later edited out of any public videos, but his words are meaningless.

These shysters have thousands of people sitting in their congregations on any given Sunday and millions watching on television. Their audience includes physicians, lawyers, writers, professors and entrepreneurs who, if a collaborative effort were made on the part of their spiritual leaders, it's no telling what they could accomplish.

At one time Carlton Pearson headed one of the largest churches in Oklahoma with an average attendance of 5000 people. He had a dream about religion being all-inclusive and that there was no such place as Hell. He began to speak about this new revelation and ultimately lost his wife, his church, and his tremendous wealth.

According to Wikipedia:

"Pearson rapidly began to lose his influence in ministry with the Joint College of African-American Pentecostal Bishops and was eventually declared a heretic by his peers in 2004."

What the hell (pardon the pun) gives these guys, in the 21st century mind you, the audacity to "declare someone a heretic?" It's all BS, plain and simple.

When Dr. King took began to speak out against the Vietnam War, his own advisor's urged him not to get involved. They told him that he had his hands full with the Civil Rights Movement.

Dr. Martin Luther King's response, 

"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere."

T.D. Jakes, Joel Osteen, Creflo Dollar, Joyce Meyer, Benny Hinn, Pat Robertson, Eddie Long and many others, would not dare speak out against War and Dirty Politics because they know they would suffer the same fate as Carlton Pearson. These people are scam artist at the highest level and part of the most colossal ponzi scheme in the history of humankind.
