Comments: Who would want to look at Jimmy Swaggert "like that" anyway?

One of the guys who resigned over moral failures.

I heard Jim Bakker was trying to get back in the Jesus business: http://www.rotten.com/library/bio/religion/televangelists/jim-bakker/

Seriously, these guys used to be funny to watch on Sunday mornings. You know, they'd talk about Jeeeeezus and cry a lot. You'd feel bad that little old ladies sent in money, but you figured it was their money, not yours. So you figured it was morally dubious, but nonetheless, free entertainment.

Now they are just scary. Instead of sitting around the TV, laughing at these oddballs with your children, now you have to cover their eyes or just turn it off altogether.

Lord raise up another Ronald Reagan, and take us back to a simpler time when televangelists were merely hypocritical nutballs, instead of fascist thugs.

Seriously dude, my grandpa (may he rest in peace) used to watch the PTL/Bakker racket just for kicks. I remember him fondly, sitting there with a big bag of M&Ms, with Tammy Faye on the TV crying her eyes out. This was before God created Comedy Central.

Ahh, the innocence of childhood.
