    EXCELLENT Piece - while I don't agree with every conclusion contained herein, I support the findings of the author. I should send my Mom this link.

    This family reminds me of televangelist Leroy Jenkins here in Ohio.

    Short story, I was helping with a local charity fundraiser and a local water bottler donated 10 cases of bottled water for the event. As the "guy with the pickup truck", I was asked to go get it. I got there and got the water and whatnot and I noticed this pallet of private labelled water for Jenkins. The guy helping me load the truck tells me, "Yeah, he sells it for $100 a case and we drop ship it for him, costs him about $6 for the case of water and about $30 for the shipping." Seems that Rev. Jenkins used to bottle water at a spring near his compound but a bunch of people got sick and some health department shut his personal bottling facility down... so now he used a commercial bottler. "Yeah, they go through about a pallet a week," the guy tells me as I'm sizing it up as holding about 40 cases.

    The racket of religion is a lucrative one.

    Thanks - I'm more interested in comments from Christians, however.

    It's always been my humble opinion that - while the truth might sting - it's never done anyone any lasting harm.

    What you've posted here is truth - harsh and unpleasant - but truth all the same. I hope it reaches the eyes and ears it was meant for. It's time to do the right thing, tough and frightening though that may be.

    Nobody likes a fake, D. Christian or not. These folks muddy everyone that is, are, or may be thinking about being one. IMO
