I’ll never forget the moment on television back in 1987, when Jim Bakker… was carried out in handcuffs by the authorities and crying
like a bitch uncontrollably. After creating a Christian amusement park called, “Heritage USA,” he and his PLT Club (Praise The Lord) managed to swindle millions of dollars from their followers when they sold $1,000 “lifetime memberships”, which entitled buyers to a three-night stay annually at a luxury hotel at, Heritage USA. Though tens of thousands of memberships were sold…only 500 rooms were available. Jim was raking in at least 3.4 million dollars in bonuses. All of this would have continued had his church secretary, Jessica Hahn, who he had paid close to 300k to stay quiet about the scam, not exposed him. She was cool with it until one night, Jim Bakker and another evangelist, John Wesley Fletcher, the man who introduced her to Jim, drugged and raped her in a hotel. Jim maintained that he did meet her in the hotel, but the sex was consensual. The bruises on her back and details of the ordeal proved otherwise.
It is only right that I follow-up one Jim with another. Jimmy Swaggart Ministries brought in a whopping 150 million dollars a year back in the 80’s. When Jim Baker’s scandal exploded, Jimmy was one of the first people to tear into the fallen prophet by saying that Jim Baker was a cancer in the body Christ…ouch! Well…not too long after, Mr. Holy’er than thou, who had always preached against adultery, was caught with a prostitute…
This came about after good old Jimmy, exposed another evangelist, Marvin Gorman, of adultery and having an affair with a deacon’s wife. In retaliation, Gorman hired his son Randy and son-in-law Garland Bilbo to stake out the Travel Inn, where Jim was known to frequent. A camera was placed in the window of the motel’s Room 12 and draped with a black cloth. When Swaggart arrived, he reportedly went into Room 7. Randy and Garland let the air out of Swaggart’s tires and called Marvin Gorman, whose church was located nearby. The two had taken photos of Swaggart outside Room 7 with a local prostitute. Gorman arrived at the Travel Inn a short while later and asked Swaggart what he was doing there…BUSTED!!!!
PEOPLE magazine called his televised confession, “the most tortured public display of contrition in recent memory…” I watched that confession and believe me…it was TORTURE!
asshole evangelist claimed to have God-like abilities and would guess the home addresses, jobs and afflictions of audience members. Man, did he have these sheep followers fooled! It was later on exposed that good Petey Popoff (sounds like a cool hip-hop name, no?) was using a radio to get information from his wife who was gathering info from the crowd. Despite many skeptic groups handing out pamphlets explaining this to his followers, Peter told them not to believe it because the pamphlets were nothing more than “tools of the devil”…Right.
James Randi, a well noted skeptic, was able to go undercover with a scanner and attended one of Popoff’s revivals. It was there that he picked up transmissions coming from the wife, telling Peter which member to go up to, along with all the information he needed to make them a believer. In one of the recordings, you hear his wife making a racial slur about an African-American woman in the crowd and joked about, “…grabbing her tits…”
When Johnny Carson aired a video of planted audience members and the audio recordings, Peter Popoff’s ministries began to crumble.
If P.Diddy was a TV evangelist, he would definitely be, Benny Hinn! Private jets, a multi-million dollar mansion, and regular stays at hotels costing thousands or tens of thousands of dollars per night. This extravagance led to United States Senator Chuck Grassley announcing that the United States Senate Committee on Finance would be investigating Hinn’s ministry. Benny
Hill’s Hinn’s empire was built off of his scam ability to heal the sick. He would invite people who had already been healed to share their testimony. Never once did he perform a miracle that viewers could confirm actually worked. The psychological manipulation came when he told his sick followers that to be healed, they had to have faith. And by faith he meant, money. Large donations had to be made in order to receive the blessings. I always wondered what happens to people who make donations to his ministries and then are not healed…do they get a refund? Probably not. I suspect they are told that they just didn’t believe enough and thus it is their fault. Dateline requested an interview him three times to explain why he refused to make his financial information public. His answer to his followers, “You may have a question by the way on why I didn’t go on that program… very simple… the Lord said, “don’t.” Priceless…
There has always been something very sinister about, Billy Graham. At the age of 96, he is the oldest tv evangelist and perhaps the most powerful. I remember hating him as a child, each time my favorite shows were canceled for one of his television specials. Think about that…Music Award shows, high rating sitcoms…all networks knew that having Billy Graham in those prime time slots would mean enormous ratings, bigger than their highest rated shows.
He is not known for miracle healing or sex scandals. Instead, it is the reach of his words and the following behind them. Billy preaches about a one world religion, new world order, paganism and not needing Jesus to actually make it to Heaven. He is also a 33rd degree Mason and Masons cannot be Christians because they are Satanists.
In order to reach such a high level, these Satanic magicians, must have a balance of good and evil deeds. Someone must be murdered or a great act committed to reach the 33rd degree. My question is, what did Billy Graham do to get there? Many crimes committed by Masons goes unsolved, and unreported. Freemasonry is so powerful that it control our government, and our police department. Most of your Sheriff are Masons. Many Masons join the CIA, FBI, and police force around the country.
Author, Fritz Springmeir, has witness accounts from former Satanic Pentagon slaves, who had escaped, stating that they knew Billy Graham as a messenger. A messenger for what you might ask? Whatever the Satanic hierarchy needed to relay to the president and top heads in the White House.
One last thing…
Robert Anton Wilson’s Illuminatus Trilogy, features an appearance by Lucifer who attends a satanic ritual under the guise of, Billy Graham…just thought I’d throw that in.
