Not one of my favorite TV personalities as, all too often, money appeared to be his primary interest.

Anyways, for his sake, I hope all that talk of heavenly reward turns out to be true.

TV evangelists motivated by money? I can't imagine that...

He along Jim Bakker, Jimmy Swaggart, Jerry Falwell gave christianity a bad name. BTW, Rev. Ike (another prosperity gospel preacher) passed away this year.
