Comedian John Oliver takes on the prosperity gospel by becoming a televangelist – The Washington Post

“If you don’t send us money, God will be extremely angry with you,” Oliver tells callers to a toll-free number he set up as part of his new “career” as a televangelist. The pre-recorded message at 1-800-THIS-IS-LEGAL also tells callers who aren’t interested in donating money to Oliver to “get off the phone and find somebody who is.”

  1. Pastor Creflo Dollar: If You Don’t See Why I Need a $65 Million Plane, You Just Don’t Get the Bible

    He explained to his congregation that anyone who questions his desire just doesn’t understand the Bible:

    See, don’t get upset when the world says stuff and talk about stuff, and all that. They’re just looking through the wrong lens. They don’t understand.
    “What does a preacher need with an airplane?” They don’t know! They’ll never know because they’re not looking through the Word. They will never know! They’ll never, never, never know.

    That still doesn’t answer the question of why Dollar needs a private airplane…
    His argument boils down to nothing more than “Gimme money because the Bible!”
