I wrote this for you to read ^^^^^^^^^^
Have you ever been addicted to a program you hate? I know,
that makes no sense. If one has an injection phobia,
does one volunteer to give blood weekly?
I have a hard time explaining to people why I used to be addicted to the PTL Club and why I now record and watch some of the Jim Bakker shows.
But the explanation is simple:
Bakker is so outrageous, I just cannot turn him off. First with PTL, Jim was selling partnerships in Heritage USA,
a huge family oriented PTL or so it was claimed PTL project, now in ruins.
Now it's Morningside, which I predict will be in ruins in a few years.
Heritage was fraudulent, and rubble is often what happens to hopes and dreams that are based upon fraudulent claims.
Morningside? Tune in and you be the judge.
Jim’s good at selling. He lays down a façade of ministry,
a cover, when what’s really going on is a sleazy sales pitch.
After an eight year stint in federal prison
it would have been much longer but his appeal resulted in a reduced sentence
Jim’s back doing what he did before, selling what looks to be cheaply made condos under cover of providing a religious program. It’s called the Jim Bakker Show,
and this time, instead of the now deceased Tammy Faye to laugh at, we have Jim’s wife, Lori, a busty blonde with a lurid past, and a brain that might fill a thimble.
This time, Jim’s selling units at Morningside, a five hundred sixty acre development in Blue Eye,Mo- near Branson, MO,
owned by his friend Jerry Crawford.
Jerry brought Jim and Lori out and put him up and on the air,
so Jim could sell his cheap Bibles, tiny swords, Jesus pictures,
“partnerships” and CDs at inflated “Love Gift” prices, and so Jim could spend most of his programming hour pushing Morningside units.
My wife and I were in Branson, and we drove by the complex. We laughed out loud. The “village” had a roof, a big one.
Long, black I-beams provided a three story structure that stretched for several hundred yards. So what now looks like a strip mall is
Jim’s Village of Morningside,
which is nothing more than a television set,
a few shops selling trinkets and plastic or coated religious stuff at inflated prices, a bakery, a general store,
maybe something of a restaurant, and of course condos, apartments, a hotel and building sites.
If you want to watch the Jim Bakker Show from the tiny balcony of your postage stamp condo, one or two stories above a fake street, you’d like Morningside.
I’m sorry, but Jim’s show is so outrageous, I just cannot turn it off.
And you should see Jim beg.
He’s got all the tools. I don’t think a show goes by where Jim doesn’t cry.
Or pretend to do so.
Jim’s lip will quiver, and he’ll talk about how much money he needs to do one more program,
Oh sure, Jim mentions Jesus once in a while, usually in a loud, practiced stretch-syllable Southern Baptist way,
like speaking the name Itself will provide enlightenment and salve all his sins.“Yes,” he’ll say,“Jeeeeeezzz-us loves us,” as if this makes the sales pitch a holy one.
But while the guy can sell, he’s not very smart. Jim’s a preacher, right?
Then what was PTL all about? You don’t think PTL was just a money grab, do you?
Of course it was. And so is Morningside and the Jim Bakker Show.
