U.S. tax law allows television preachers to get away with almost anything. We know this from personal experience.
Our Lady of Perpetual Exemption will not be able to accept donations from Church supporters from the states of Mississippi, Nevada, Pennsylvania, or South Carolina. We apologize for any inconvenience.

The Clinton Foundation, ACLU, Southern Poverty Law Center get away with A LOT MORE THEN CHURCHES DO. Churches are 501c3s, and are non profits like any others. I love how we have "churches' what about Mosques? What i would like to know is why colleges take our tax money. Liberal Arts degrees do nothing to make people prosper financially. Why should the tax payer shell out money for liberal brainwashing. Churches do not need to pay taxes. Government needs to tighten their belt accordingly.
These scum, scammers should be in jail, and their organizations taxed. They continue to prosper because of the gullibility of their followers. Those who believe in these televangelists have much in common with Trump supporters -- many are far right extremist fundamentalists!
read your bible people it plainly there will be people preaching ''a form of christianity'' DONOT BE MISLEAD,but there you are people wanted to have their ears tickeled , another paraphrased scripture ok so as amazing as it is yes there are people ignorant to pay into this.but dont blame all christians as being the same .....
This makes prosperity preaching and. Christianity as a whole look bad. And it isn’t Oliver’s fault. I feel sick to see people abuse the followers of Christ and especially lead others into death and dispare.
this kind of shit only exist in america and the second to also do that are islamist asking for money to finance their terrorist endeavour.. where some self appointed imam preach the most extreme version of the quran or whatever selfmade book they made of it to many. via.. videos on youtube!! As there is no official school for imam anyone can say they are imam or doctor.. and you can fond them by the ton o youtube. it is the same.
Also only in usa you could have scientology and mormon church working. they are forbidden in most europen countries.
Thats the best tax evasion scam ever! anyone can make a fake church make tons of money on it or even put a pre existing company as part of that church and dont be taxed ever!! google or facebook could do that and avoid having ot pay taxes! Dont you have a law in USA that state that it is forbidden to tell people lies who affect their health and can end in the death of the person? if it was used here those people will get life sentence in jail or the death penalty.
Religion is a mental illness, it is an obsessive compulsive behavior. which is very visible in those religious tv shows, and in the way many of those sects member behave
Schools who teach lies about history and science and hide scientific knowledge are nothing else bt propaganda schools and should be forbidden in the united states. i dont understand why the government don't have taken action against this phenomenon already. School are supposed to inform and teach children and prepare them for their life as adults, not to make them totally stupid and believe things who have nothing to od with reality.
US is themost ante logical country in the world. Freedom of faith do not mena imposing your shit to everybody else nor forcing children into iit, nor does it mean that you can make money on it by doing whatever you found to do with total impunity. the gov has to change that asap.
In France private schools and private religious/christian school have to follow the pensum of regular school totaly and cannot teach lies about any subject, history, geography, sciences, medecin, and any attempt to do that is considered as child abuse.
Brainwashing people is defined and part of the law and punished as a crime with jail sentences.
America should do the same as it is very necessary cause behind all that money those assholes have there is hundreds of thousands of poor people who got totally deprived and end up in the streets, and thousands ils people who died of an illness who was curable with medicine.
The money they raised could help so many poor in america and all over the world. if you want to do good follow bill gates work in the world they do the right things and dont ask people to ruin themselves to od so on the contrary they give.
The rule is simple if they ask you for money they are not tru they are not spiritual, as money cancel it.
they are just fraud and charlatan.
Where are the so call evangelists giving money to help those people calling with their illnesses and their misery?
What they do on tv is call hypnotisme. and use the tricks to do that. thereofr too it should be totally forbidden by the government like raising voice in the way they do it . Why is it legal in USA? and why dont they make a vote by people for or against it you live in a democracy some things need to be corrected once in awhile...
The seed if the Word of God not money! All this religious stuff is not of God! The Bible even says seek not to be rich and if you get rich you are required to be a good Stuart of that money and share a big part of it with those less than you! Love your neighbor even as you love your self.
These deeply disgusting people and their "Prosperity Gospel", actually a form of sociopathic narcissism swathed in religion, have done immense harm. Most obviously by their unwavering support of Donald J. Trump and his complicit henchman, Mike Pence.
"Seed faith" is Ponzi scheme scamming, plain and simple. It's defrauding people who are gullible, vulnerable & unable to afford it.
I might agree with him on televangelists and that lot but it sounds an awful lot like leftists wanting more of our hard earned dollars as tax money for whatever total bullshit schemes like what they use to call global warming. But ofcourse that hes fine with but throw your money away from leftists and giving it to grifting preachers no the left can't allow that to happen but tax us till we bleed like they did in the soviet union thats ok.
John Oliver is a putz. Spouting fake news just as the daily show has done and l can truly say even as CNN does and you wonder why stalinist leftist communist progressives sound either stupid or as if their habitual liars.
why are there so many gullable ppl out there who believe in this? Church's number one mission is to take the hard earned money out of your hand now. Its second mission is to preach to your weak mind so that they can continue to take more money out of your hand in the future. It's a big multi level marketing scheme and they don't even sell a real product.
Praise the Lord! Donald Trump has been sent by Jesus to body slam Satan out of the ring, and usher in a new world of peace and love. The children crying on our border are agents of Satan trying to make our god fearing, porn star humping, pussy grabbing president look bad. We salute you Donald! And all those Jesus-loving North Korean generals who want nothing more than to open their concentration camps and detention centres and free their children too! Those godless Canadians, and British, and French are the ones we have to watch out for. Hallelujah.
If you have to use canned laughter to carry your hate speech you are not very clever ! Most of the wealthy TV preachers are authors and make their money selling books and speaking at seminars . Like it or not they do help people ! In fact they help many more than other high paid people like movie stars , singers , and athletes. See what some of the paychecks are like at HBO and other worthless media personalities ! Always have balance in your life. Remember socialism , humanism , and atheism are also religions. I think these preachers that do exploit people will be judged as God will return to them judgement. Those that do help millions will be blessed. Again , the wealthy preachers are successful authors .
You'll be happy to hear I'm not an atheist anymore. Our Lady of Perpetual Exemption hath shown her saving grace upon me. To think I was bowing my head in silent contemplation of what a travesty this was _even before this video!_ Surely a sign of fate.
While I don't take the concept of hell or Dante's Inferno seriously, _if I were running it_ , televangelists would have their own dedicated layer. Where they get to die in that hospital bed, broke and desperate, for all eternity.
I'd say "god help us" but for some reason he seems to disproportionately favor extremely skilled con artists who are good at convincing people to give them ludicrous amounts of money. I think us need to help us.
doesn't John Oliver just spread fake news in the name of comedy in the way these fake healers use God to spread fake prophecy? Speaking in tongues to Tilton is the hollywoord writer's union (Gay mafia) with it's hand up Olivers British speaking asshole.
I have Lupus and that was sorta funny, but I get it. The joke is funny but it sucks having it. I wish it was that easy. Faith doesn't cost so I totally get the humor. Just an eye opener for the most part.
Good grief we have so many stupid, unthinking people who think god will give them millions as well as all manner of luxury homes, cars. Boats etc. it’s all BS. We must get rid of tax exemptions for church’s and donations to church’s
There are some heretics who call themselves Christians, such as prosperity preachers, one of the reasons why the path to heaven is so narrow. While atheists focus their eyes on Christians in general, they are largely unaware of their own plight. Church and state will combine with America enforcing the worship of Roman Catholicism, headquartered in the Vatican, secretly run by Jesuits who are so heavily criticised by endless numbers of people. This century is highly likely to be the last. The Bible has predicted this insane change but of course just carry on your lives, in a few decades, I estimate some time in the 2040s, you will be sorry.
yeah, but I like the way that John took it further than most. it's also utterly stupefying how these parasites can operate this way basically unchecked...this is the problem when as a country you put God before common-sense.
