    Governing Body seems to have emerged into the light of day after almost a hundred years of being virtually invisible.
    That is HUGE.

    the bigger they grow the harder they fall..? frightening in its detail.

    It surprised me to hear the man say all TV evangelists (?) are Pentecostal and related by blood. Should I assume he meant "White"?
    My favorite of all time was Gene Scott. Now that man had entertainment value.
    I think his wife (who took over the ministry and managed to survive being outed as a former porn 'actress') is a fine teacher. The emphasis being on the word 'fine.'

    I always wonder why these religions have such a strangle hold on the politicians of this country. Thank you Terry for the great read. Still Totally ADD

    Constituents with Money contribute to campaigns with implicit agreements of a "hearing ear and positive outcome."
    The chances of stopping the gravy train are zero.

    Local preachers have a better chance than National evangelicals because too many upcoming prosecutors want to make a name for themselves.

    Still--it is rare to have National scandal.

    I used to find Gene Scott entertaining and kind of fascinating in a way. I read that he got a form of cancer and wouldn't get treatment because he believed God would heal him. He didn't.

    Terry -- very interesting and amazing you had the opportunity to meet this guy - WOW! I'd definitely try to stay in contact - some serious writing material. Wonder how many pharmaceutical drugs people have to douse themselves with to maintain because of religion's wild crack fix.

    Gene was as close as you get to an honest hypocrite :)

    That "bag man" attorney was in genuine fear of his life; or it seemed so to me.
    There was no way he could disguise the information by writing under a pseudonym. Only one source would have access and the finger would point to him.
