The Sooner the Better: On Senators and Investigations

Friends,

I have been somewhat following this story of Senator Grassley’s investigations into the likes of Creflo Dollar, Benny Hinn, Kenneth Copeland and the rest of those preachers of the ‘gospel according to Wall Street.’ I am happy to see that the Senator is making some progress.

I was also interested that the story reports this:

Copeland said the ministry fully complies with all laws, and pledged that he would go to jail before turning over names of donors.

“The enemy is not going to steal what the Lord has won through this ministry, and he is not going to use this attack to bring harm to the rest of the churches and ministries in America!” Copeland wrote.

Note to KC: I’d rather have the harm of the enemy than to have your hopeless ‘gospel’. And frankly, the sooner you go to jail the better. Seriously, Kenneth needs to go away–for a long time–to Folsom Prison or Alcatraz or Antarctica. I would just offer this little bit of insight. If Kenneth Copeland has nothing to hide, then why does he not just allow the Senator to be embarrassed by turning over the stuff and proving his innocence in the matter? All KC is doing is stalling for time so he can shred a few more documents.

It is about time someone do something about this banality that Copeland calls ‘gospel’. And since it is quite apparent that no one within the Evangelical community is going to, kudos to the Senator.

On a side note, I figure after the senators in Washington get done with Roger Clemens, Kenneth Copeland, Bill Belichek, and the presidential campaign trail, perhaps they can turn their attention back to the ever increasing cost of a gallon of gasoline. I know that the millionaires in Washington are having no problems buying food and fuel, but those of us who live in the real world are starting to get a little more than concerned. Thank you, Senators for thinking of us…once in a while.

Save us from Steroids. Save us from cheating football coaches. Save us from prosperity preachers. Save us from presidential candidates. But please, whatever you do, don’t address the cost of fuel and food in the country. No really, please don’t.

PS–there’s only a few people in the world who think KC, BH, CD and the rest are innocent. The rest of us know they are guilty.

    I’m a bit confused. You criticize John Hagee for allowing politicians in the pulpit but are in favor of allowing them into the church to determine which are legitimate and which are frauds
    i don’t believe it is the place for politicians in either situation, nor in our lives for that matter

  2. No, I criticize John Hagee for abusing his privilege and position. Hagee can do what he wants with HIS pulpit. Still, it’s a bad endorsement and I agree politicians should not be in the pulpits of any church for political reasons (which I have pointed out in other posts).

    As for these senators, I applaud the senator for doing what no one else is doing: investigating fraud (allegedly) or the appearance of impropriety a task which is his right to do. He has not taken over the pulpit in a local church hoping to win votes. However, you may want to read this again:

    “Save us from Steroids. Save us from cheating football coaches. Save us from prosperity preachers. Save us from presidential candidates. But please, whatever you do, don’t address the cost of fuel and food in the country. No really, please don’t.”

    Here you can see that I am actually being quite critical of the senators in Washington. In my estimation, there is a serious difference between politicians taking over pulpits and politicians investigating alleged criminals.

    Thanks for stopping by.
