Kenneth Copeland - he of the too good to even fly first class set - is all happy that his suckers followers and Jesus bought him a new jet.

Quote

Now, Copeland’s dreams of conversations with God via corporate air travel have been realized. As The Friendly Atheist points out, he just purchased a “debt free” Gulfstream V from media mogul Tyler Perry.

“Are you seeing this?” Copeland says in a video documenting the jet’s arrival.

“I hope so! You bought it! You and Jesus!” he exclaimed to his followers.

“First, the Holy Spirit confirmed to Brother Copeland that the Gulfstream V was the plane the Lord had set aside for [Kenneth Copeland Ministries],” a blurb on his website read, describing a timeline of how the jet was purchased. “And praise God, it was actually during THANKSGIVING week that the purchase was completed, the title was signed, and thanks to the CX Team, the cash was in the bank to mark it paid in full! Hallelujah, it’s done!”

And of course now Jesus and his followers need to give Kenny 2.5 mil to upgrade the jet.

So, Jesus is his personal assistant? Does Jesus also pick up Copeland's dry cleaning and make sure his favorite snacks are always available? I really hope he doesn't have to steam Copeland's pants like Trump's people do. :disgust:

Now all the other reich wing prosperity gospel types are rushing to Copeland's defense

Quote

Televangelist Kenneth Copeland is back in the news after a recent interview for Inside Edition went viral. It involved him defending his lavish lifestyle, including his purchase of a private jet so that he doesn’t have to fly like everyone else in a “long tube with a bunch of demons.”

Now other wealthy Christians are coming to Copeland’s defense. Because of course they are.

Fellow televangelist James Robison, an evangelical adviser to Donald Trump, says his wife saw the Inside Edition episode and “wept so freely she could not watch till the end.” He also added that “This is the kind of attack our President faces 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.” Whatever that means.

It’s amazing how these people are meant to be conduits to God when they’re completely unable to function in civil society. I’ve been on planes with alcohol. I have yet to bear witness to a fight or a drunken row-mate.

I would think a real Christian evangelist would probably want to be back in economy with the heathens. Showing people kindness, and being a good example of Christianity. Jesus didn't hang out with only the wealthiest people, he spoke to and helped the beggars and downtrodden. He wasn't driven into town on a gilded chariot, or carried on a fancy cushioned thing on the disciple's shoulders, wearing fancy clothes. He rode on the back of a donkey. He walked, in the dirt and dust. He spoke to people, and treated even the lowest of them as actual people who mattered. 

These super wealthy televangelists and such are basically the same as scammers tricking people out of their money. They care little for their congregations and even less for the people who haven't been reached by the gospel. They care about how much money people will donate to them.

      Had some bad news out of Dubuque today - 3 teenagers were killed in a one car accident where the driver had been speeding and flipped his car. 
      I feel so sorry for their families and friends now.  It also brought back painful memories for me and some of my classmates because my junior year of high school three of our classmates were killed in an accident as well.   One I had known since elementary school.

      Hey FJers, long time. Sorry I've not posted in like forever - life just sometimes gets in the way.
      During the lockdown, I did various temporary jobs (shelf stacking in Wilko, and also working from home doing call centre type stuff, including Test and Trace) but hope to go busking soon. I need to practise my set as my guitar/singing has got a bit rusty!
      Since I last posted, I have become a cat mum! My housemate with Lilith had to move abroad and wasn't able to take her with him, so I inherited her. She'll be two in August but still looks and acts like a kitten. I love her more than life itself.

      Sooo. I turned down the new job, realized I've been scammed.
       
      Also today I'm 26 and drunk right now. My amazing husband took me to Chicago to a rooftop bar and I'm so glad my mom is here to babysit and I pumped enough to last her a few days

      With the fall of Roe v. Wade, now would be a great time to start taxing religious institutions so we can increase funding for women's and children's health and education services.  Males 18-25 still have to register for Selective Service; how about adding a DNA database to that requirement to help track down impregnators and hold them responsible for their part?

      I am so angry over the SCOTUS decision. It seems like The Handmaid's Tale is being used as a guidebook. Fortunately, CO is a little more progressive (Lauren Bobert not withstanding). I'm just so pissed off that the fundies are trying to do this under the guise of "christianity". This is NOT Christianity, it is a shameless power grab. Those idiots forget all the NT stuff about "Get away from me I never knew you" and "even the elect will be deceived".

      Last year I asked here if anybody has some experience with Postcrossing. I registered last year and now I want to share with you that in the last 10 months I had so many good and interesting "conversations" with absolute strangers all over the world. When I write a card I try to tell something from my day or something that I and the other person have in common (based on their profile) and when the other person registers the card when they received it, they can write a short message. And so often they tell me something similar about their day or why they agree or disagree with me on the topic I wrote. I admit that I put many thoughts into which card, stickers and stamps I choose, and I must admit that I now have a huge postcard-sticker-stamp collection. It makes so much fun and the world seems to become closer together. It is a nice hobby that I personally like very much.
