Life Tabernacle Church Pastor Tony Spell

I just ran across this on CNN, and read with horror and shock at how selfish Tony Spell is, and how ignorant are his sheeples.

He is asking his members to donate their stimulus checks (even though he is aware many are struggling financially) to his church so he can pay his preachers and missionaries. They are eligible for those stimulus checks, but they choose not to file.

Tony and his band of con men defy the Governor's order banning gathering of over ten people, last month, police filed six misdemeanor charges against Spell, accusing him of violating the governor’s executive order.

His lawyer is in hospital with .. yup, Covid. Members have contracted and died from this disease.

I've seen this shit over and

I've seen this shit over and over and over again. These assholes should be arrested as confidence men. Scamming people out of money and giving them nothing in return puts these assholes at the very bottom of my "Hate the Fuckers" list.

They are the lowest of the low, the prime examples of horrible people doing evil for their own selfish interests.

"They are the lowest of the low, the prime examples of horrible people doing evil for their own selfish interests."

I've always thought so. I don't think we have televangelists in Oz. Perhaps in Queensland, which is known as 'the deep north" and home of the Australian bible belt.

I have always had trouble believing such people actually believe the guff they preach ----I've often wondered what happened to Jesus' admonition in Matthew 19:21. "Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me."

I guess those parasitic troglodytes think they are already perfect .

Perhaps the most useful things about the bible are its ambiguity and contradictions. Every christian I have known, of any flavour ,has cherry picked his or her beliefs. My favourite is a bloke in in the army with whom I shared a room.( 5 men to a large room) He was adamant that Catholic teachings include reincarnation.

Thought for today "A Thousand monks, a thousand religions' (Buddhist saying)

Yes we do....the most heinous is of course our Prime Ministers very own Hillsong Church. They program regularly where they can purchase time on the channels.

I've never seen or heard of any up here, but I don't watch that kind of TV or move in those circles. I've seen people demonstrating against mosques, but I thought they were racists more than religious nuts.

IMHO, evangelist whackos are not taken very seriously in Australia or New Zealand. Australia's Ken Ham and New Zealand's Ray Comfort (Banana Man) both had to go to the US to make their fortunes.

I think people like Ray Spell have to be atheists. If they really believed in god and heaven/hell, they wouldn't dare to behave as they do. In fact, the existence of evangelists is another piece of evidence for the non-existence of god.

Maybe this terrible pandemic

Maybe this terrible pandemic will do us a favour here, and trim a little scum off the gene pool....

Its end times, well for this scumbag and his minions hopefully it is. They're Remora fish, but without any benefit to the host.

Sadly this is true, it's the nature of a pandemic that selfish people who ignore quarantine rules may cost untold lives.

Like those right wing christian groups protesting in several states in the US yesterday. Trump's rhetoric is feeding their selfiosh stupidity. They were even protesting against being forced to take a vaccine, if and when it can be created, fucking retards.

"While protesters in Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky and other states claim to speak for ordinary citizens, many are also supported by street-fighting rightwing groups like the Proud Boys, conservative armed militia groups, religious fundamentalists, anti-vaccination groups and other elements of the radical right."
