OMG! This guy is unbelievable and Rod is the the most evil character in OHio. His "flock" are a bunch of turkeys! He lives like a Saudi King! Do the "people" that follow him even have a mind of there own? It is sooooo obvious he is a con-artist crook!

God will vindicate the righteous. I'm saddened to read such a scathing report from the Columbus Dispatch. Is it a slow news night? Why don't you report about terrorism, or Obama taking us trillions of dollars into debt - the worst debt accumulation of any President to date! Where's the support of our troops at war?

Yes, direct the spotlight elsewhere while RevRod sells indulgences; something the Catholic Church did a couple hundred years ago to finance their own Glory Palaces. Jane R needs a clue. Maybe Rod will sell her one?

What the F*ck is wrong with you? DOnt you see how he spends "donations" on himself and lives like a king! Have you seen his "home"? His "clothes, cars and bodyguards? Any respectable "man of god" is not going to be living like a "KING". Think about lady, quit supporting a con-artist...just open your eyes!

As usual the flock has been FLEECED but there is never enough for the evil fat cat at the top. Just say NO folks and pray directly to a God that needs no earthly interpretation from another scam artist.

If there be a God, Rod will get his one day... (but from the other guy more than likely)

Hey Parsley, post under your own name, quit trying to hide behind a woman's name.

Anyone who had built the organization Rod Parsley has built in the secular world would make at least 3x the money in salary and would have equity in the organization as well. You're also showing your ignorance by calling him a con artist. He couldn't be more forthcoming about what he does with the money he raises, whether it be missions, building a television studio or whatever. If you don't like him, say so, but don't just make stuff up.

Such a wonderful Christian... "send me money, and I'll pray for you." I guess Rod needs fuel for his jet plane, or perhaps the heat got shut off in one of his three houses.

Amazing what the death or Oral Roberts Has stirred up.. This is exactly what he "prayed" for money or his health would be taken by the Lord. At his death he was 91...

Does this guy have to pay taxes or is he tax exempt? I don't understand how his congregation is ok with the fact that he lives like a king. This world has gone mad.

His ministry hit upon rocky times in the 1980s. There was controversy over his City of Faith medical center, a $250 million investment that eventually folded, and Roberts' widely ridiculed proclamation that God would "call me home" if he failed to meet a fundraising goal of $8 million. A law school he founded also was shuttered.
