Jim Bakker Show 2011 Wrap-up: The Scammys

Jim Bakker squealing like a pig after a successful 2011
It's been a long, prosperous 2011 for the Jim Bakker Show. Disasters, foreign and domestic, have been pounced upon by King Bakker in order to exploit the fears of naive people and get their money flowing into his castle at Morningside. Has anyone actually had to use a foodbucket yet? Nope. Have any super-grannies used their parachute wristbands to yank a doomed child out of a swollen, fast-moving river? Not a one. But that doesn't matter, because they're prepared! And they'll be even more prepared next year, when Bakker starts up a new round of overpriced offerings that serve only one purpose: To make money for Jim.

But before that new sales year begins, let's reflect back on the Jim Bakker Show in 2011 as we inaugurate the first ever Scammy Awards.


Bakker's Mississippi 'fill bottle'
Best Switcharoo
The 2011 Scammy Award for Best Switcharoo goes to Jim Bakker for his stellar sales-work on the Mississippi River with Bishop Ron Webb. Bakker says he was on location in flood-ravaged areas to provide assistance to victims affected by the disaster. In reality, Bakker was on location so he could trick his viewers into thinking that he's a man of the people who works to help them improve their lives. If Bakker cared to help people, he wouldn't charge them hefty markups to buy his garbage products. He wouldn't insist on having cameras covering his every move. And, he wouldn't fill a water bottle with water taken from the Mississippi River, then switch it with a 'clean' bottle before drinking from it. A man of the people doesn't do that, but that's what Jim did.

Bakker's Mississippi 'drink bottle'
Any viewer with two brain cells can clearly see that Jim has two different bottles at his disposal: one with black tape and one without. The one with black tape is dunked into the the dirty, filthy Mississippi River, for drinking. The crew cuts, gives Jim the un-taped bottle full of clean and crisp Evian Spring Water, and we roll tape again. Bakker takes a long swig, declares the water purely delicious, and we sell thousands of them. Simple and effective, yet dishonest to the core. Congratulations Jim Bakker, you are the recipient of this year's Scammy Award for Best Switcharoo. Keep up the good work!


Biggest Waste of Inbred 'Dollurs'
Jim Bakker dwarfed by a Foodbucket Pyramid
Jim seems to sell just about everything that's offered to him at a discount, and once in awhile he really flies off his rocker and ends up pricing these things out of poor man's territory. The $250 foodbucket 'Inbred Special' has pretty much become the norm now for Jim. Prior to the foodbuckets, I seem to recall that his modus operandi was that of a cheap jewelry salesman. But it's becoming a little more common nowadays to see Bakker toeing the water in the big boy pool to see how much people are willing to cough-up. We've seen $1,000 trinkets like the Film Camera paperweight that looked like it was made out of spare plumbing parts. Most Builder's Club or Legacy Club memberships will run you $1,000 as well. Buying either of these probably nets the buyer dinner with, or a phone call from, an oddly congratulatory Jim Bakker as he welcomes you into 'The Club'. But this year we saw one product outshine them all in sheer greed, while simultaneously blinding us with it's hideousness: The $10,000 dollar statue of a Godzilla-sized Jesus.

Jim Bakker sold the Golden Calf
Even today, the details are sketchy for me. Was the purchaser actually receiving a giant statue delivered to their doorstep, or was it just a statue for Jim's own personal use? And if it was a statue just for Jim, how much did it cost in total if multiple people could donate ten grand? For all the confusion about the details, there was one thing very clear: The price. Ten-thousand smackaroos. Little do these numbskulls realize that it comes with an added bonus: It earns the buyer the eternal ire of the man himself, Jesus Christ.

Because you know what Jesus really enjoys more than anything else? Some dumb inbred giving $10,000 to Jim Bakker for a graven image of Him. It's probably more ethical to simply burn the money to ashes than send it to The Snake. What on earth has Jim Bakker done to deserve that money, exactly? Are you rewarding him for breaking rocks on the prison work crew? You should be ashamed of yourself, whoever you are.

The Scammy for Biggest Waste of Inbred 'Dollurs' goes to Jim Bakker's Jesus statue. You're going to hell for that one, Jim.


Best Kiss (of a girl's hand who is not your daughter)
Philip Cameron with his Moldovan Harem
Hands-down, this year's award for Best Kiss on Christian Television goes to Jim Bakker's favorite fat-and-horny Scotsman, Philip Cameron. Sometime in the September-October time frame, Bakker aired a few days of Philip Cameron episodes while Flip Cameron was in town to pick up another truckload of Morningside money. I wasn't able to watch the episodes completely through without a very real risk of vomiting, but I decided to snap a few pictures of what I thought was highly inappropriate behavior coming from Cameron towards a young orphan girl from Moldova. This proved timely, as I can now award Philip Cameron his 2011 Scammy award for Best Kiss (of a girl's hand who is not your daughter).

A sly-eyed Philip Cameron preparing to plant one
[Prosecutor] And what was Mr Cameron wearing at the time of the inappropriate behavior?
[Me] He was wearing a blue blazer with his shirt open at the collar. I remember it clearly because I thought to myself that it looked like he was dressed up for a date. Oh, he also wore a gold watch. Like I said, I thought he was on a date.

Cameron was making a big hoo-haw about this poor girl's fingers having been cut off in an accident, and how self-conscious it made her. He then proceeded to display her hand for the entire American television viewing public to see.
You're an asshole, Philip Cameron
[Prosecutor] Did you think that was right?
[Me] Showing this poor girl's hand to the camera? Hell no it wasn't right, she's self-conscious about it! How about we strip Cameron's fat ass naked and show off his little pecker to the camera? Let's find out what he's self-conscious about, then display it for the whole world to see.

Your creepy actions do not go unnoticed, Flip.

Philip Cameron then leans in and kisses this girl's hand. I think even Jim and Lori were shocked by the vulgarity of it. It was disgusting, it looked like he was proposing to her. Then he told us, with a smile, that kissing a woman's hand is the most tender thing you can do in Moldovan society. Dude, that's not a woman, that's a girl who is an orphan and is most definitely not your daughter! Why are you kissing her hand you friggin' weirdo?
[Prosecutor] How did that make you feel?
[Me] It made want to kick him in the nuts. From behind.
[Prosecutor] Do you see Mr Cameron in the courtroom today?
[Me, pointing] Yeah, he's that big fat slob sitting right there. The one with the molester stare.

Like the fox guarding the henhouse, Philip Cameron assures us that he's keeping an eye on his Moldovan orphans and keeping them out of trouble. But who's watching Philip Cameron?

Congratulations on your 2011 Scammy award, Philip Cameron. Stay outta trouble big guy.


Most Shocking Clothing Choice by a 71-year old man
Jim Bakker preparing to sand off old paint
Jim Bakker is a human chameleon. We've seen him wearing both galoshes and waders while standing in water and reminding us to 'Be Prepared'. During the 'Danger Bakker' episodes back in May, Jim was on location in turnado town, rummaging through peoples' wrecked homes while wearing a cheap breathing mask like a house painter preparing to sand his work. Was it eye-catching, yes. Necessary? Probably not. But Jim, as we all know, doesn't worry about things like 'necessity'. He just wants your money,and he's prepared to dress obnoxiously if doing so falls into the current sales-week's job requirement.


Is Jim pissing his pants?
Fast-forward to June-July shows, and we see clips of Bakker cuttin' a rug in an electric blue blazer, contrasting loudly with a red shirt underneath. If we were wearing 80s era red-and-blue 3D glasses, Jim would have appeared three-dimensional to us and boy it wouldn't have been pretty...they showed a little bit of his dancing to us, and he just sort of bobbed up and down with his knees turned inwards like a kid that's gonna pee his pants with excitement.

But nothing to date has beaten what was witnessed just this past week. For this year's Christmas Show, Jim apparently opened his present early and wore it to a taping to surprise everyone. I'm not sure that Jim opened the right gift though, because the jacket looks a little more like something one of his daughter's would have bought for their young Goth boyfriend than something Lori bought for old Gramps.

Captain Corset arrives to save the day
It's an incredible jacket, something right out of a movie, if that movie were about a bellhop who becomes a SuperHero, goes back in time to serve as a Civil War General, dies, and is reborn as Michael Jackson. That Superhero's name: Captain Corset. But this isn't a movie, it's reality, and on a 71-year old man, the jacket is startlingly out of place. How did it come into Jim's possession? I find it hard to believe that a shop exists in Branson which sells this coat, it's far too cool. This is not something you find at Walmart, I don't even think it's something a person should wear in public: It's Rock Star gear, something the band wears at a concert. Say what I will about the coat though, I can't deny that it certainly sends a message to everyone at Morningside about just who is in charge here. "Jim Bakker's in charge here, that's why Jim Bakker's wearing this here coat!"

Because this coat is so grand, I don't think we'll ever see it worn again. It's his full Class A uniform, something worn mostly for parades and inspections. At year end, Jim has his own parade of sorts as he trots out all the people who worship and support him. And like any good Field Marshal, he inspects his paraded subjects for signs of disloyalty or protest, ferreting them out and sending them packing once another dumb schmuck becomes available for less.

For sheer rarity, Jim's Superhero jacket wins this year's Scammy for Most Eye-Catching Clothing Choice by Jim Bakker. Great choice Captain Corset, now go catch some criminals!


Biggest Crock of Shit
"I ever tell you about the time I parachuted into 'Nam?"
Faster than a speeding bullet. More powerful than a locomotive. Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound! That's Superman's celebrated intro, and it may as well be fake Dr Larry Bates' intro, too. This guy knows it all, does it all, he makes things happen...all in his own mind. The latest news reports have this fat twerp's company ripping people off for thousands of dollars in gold and silver coins, but that doesn't deter Jim Bakker from having him on the show one bit. You see, Larry talks a really good game of bullshit, and he'll look you square in the eye while he does it. Is he ugly? Yes. Short? Yes. He's also fat. But most importantly, he's the winner of the 2011 Scammy Award for Biggest Crock of Shit. Larry portrays himself as an expert on all things, which probably includes masturbation given the ugly face he was cursed with. Hey Larry, how about staying off Bakker's show until you deliver those coins people ordered? Then go flush yourself down the toilet and go back where you belong.


Best Phony Jim Bakker Prophecy
Jim Bakker sowing fear
In the 'Why Won't This Got-Dang Prophecy Come True" category, we have multiple nominees to choose from. Snake Bakker, probably banking on a strong Bengali monsoon season, prophesied in May about mudslides and his dreaded but fun-to-say 'June En-tomb-ment'...then nothing happened. Was God wrong about 'June Entombments', or was Jim Bakker just making it up to sell product?


God's prophecy to Jim: "Jobs Died"
 He also presented a very odd past-and-future prophesy, whereby he declared upon Steve Job's death that God told him the death was prophetic because 'Jobs are dying'. To illustrate the prophecy, Jim showed a headline which read 'Jobs Dies'. The deception alarm whooped loudly in my brain when I read that, as I suspect the 'headline' was entered by a Master's Media student, making Jim's headline a fraud. No respectable journalist would refer to 'Steve Jobs' as 'Jobs', especially upon the man's death. When Jim Bakker's earthly world ends, will the headlines read 'Bakker Dies'? Of course not. They'll read, "Jim Bakker dies; all property confiscated". Or something like that.

Jim Bakker peddles fear, worry, fright, and terror.
And we'll never, ever forget Bakker's claim that 'the nation will run out of corn in August', especially when seeing delicious corn on the cob being served daily at any local Kenny Roger's Roasters (or similar country buffet). Bakker's corn prophecy even came sourced from two different entities: Jesus and Dr Larry Bates. But the big corn prophecy was not to be, leading some people, or at least myself, to consider Bakker an outright liar who pretends to hear from God in order to inflate his own bank account. And what a dilemma Jim's placed us in with his prophecy of food riots in 2012...I'll call bullshit on that one right now, but I very well can't give him a Scammy in advance for it.

Food riots are coming in 2012, says Jim Bakker
I've changed my mind. Because I am confident, so very confident, that Jim Bakker is a false prophet who lies at will about all things Godly, I'm awarding the Scammy for Best Phoney Jim Bakker Prophecy for Jim's bullshit prediction of food riots in 2012. Call it my very own prophecy. I don't know what it is, something just tells me that Bakker's full of crap when he makes predictions which coincidentally tie-in directly to the items he's selling that day.


'Be PREPARED! Buy my foodbuckets NOW!'
Are you a Bakker zombie who believes everything Jim says is true? Why don't you come out on record and say so, so I can point you back here next year when Bakker's phony prophecies are, once again, shown to be false. There's no problem if you're wrong, after all that's how people learn. You might even thank me for waking you up and out of your Bakker daze to see the truth. Trust me, you don't want to be nominated for next year's award for Most Amusing Inbred.



Most Amusing Inbred
Cross a beaver with the town drunk...
Two eyes, a couple'a teeth, and a burning desire to please their Lord, Jim Bakker. That's the basic composition of a Jim Bakker inbred. But these aren't just any inbreds. They're zombie inbreds: Brainless, smelly and mean old cusses. Asking me to pick the inbred that makes me chuckle most is like asking me to pick which episode of Three's Company is my favorite. The answer is all of the above. Remember that ugly critter that looked like the end result of an inter-species love affair between a drunk, lusty inbred and a sexually-adventurous beaver? And what about the lonely female inbred with the crooked mouth who listened dully to Jim Bakker as he worked her over with his sales pitch?

This woman is a disgrace to the human race.
We once had a normal-looking-on-the-outside inbred male who slurped down a spoonful of foodbucket slop while maintaining eye contact with Jim? This man's obedience to Bakker while eating was legendary...eyes trained on Jim like a dog on his master, he swallowed down that foodbucket slop and didn't even blink.

Bakker should just run an entire show profiling his inbreds, then declare to us, "If you look like, or want to look like, one of my fabulous specimens, order now!" It's almost a 'chicken or egg' question. Did Jim Bakker spawn all these animals, or did they spawn Jim?

'I'ma get me summa that Jim Bakker stew...Whooo boy!'
I like to think that they all hatched from the same large, rotten egg. Maybe toxic waste or radioactive material leeched into ground water somewhere near the Ozarks, eventually bubbling to the surface in a dark, stinky swamp used by brothers, sisters and cousins as a love jacuzzi. From there apparently all hell broke loose, giving us creatures like the color-blind inbred with long greasy hair and a corn kernel smile, and the cross-eyed stinker with the bowl-haircut and dual sex organs. I mean really, how else can this be explained if not by some horrible bastardization of nature? Is this a government experiment gone wrong?

"P.U.! You are a stinker!"
They are all spectacular to observe in their natural element. The Ozarks breeds some fine specimens, and they all seem to crawl down from the mountains and into Jim Bakker's la-la land. Are they tame? Do they carry fleas? Is their meat safe to eat? My list of questions literally extends into the hundreds. Do they sleep standing up? Are they egg-laying creatures, or do they give live birth? I think the only right thing to do here is to declare all Bakker zombies winners of the 2011 Scammy award for Most Amusing Inbred. Lord knows they need some winning in their lives.


Fattest Person on the Jim Bakker Show
"Eating again, eh Shorey?"
Making a thunderous splash for the third year in a row, Kevin Shorey easily wins the 2011 award for Fattest Person on the Jim Bakker Show. Considering that this is only the first year of the award, one can imagine just how far Shorey outgirths the rest of the field. He had a few challengers to the throne: The obnoxious Zach Drew. The thunder-thighed Elephant which graduated with the Master's Media class of '11. The enormous Bakker Zombie seated in the crowd one day. But one doesn't need a cattle scale to recognize Kevin's pure dominance of the category. To all new prospects, good luck unseating this massive beast. Challengers be damned, because Shorey's ownin' this one for a long time. Or at least until he collapses on-stage from congestive heart failure.


Stupidest Master's Media student
"I'm Zach Drew, and I'm a fat loser now that I sell for Jim."
The year started out with some very strong nominees. We had Mrs Charlotte Wintercorn walking the wrong way during a dance routine. And later in the year, Sasha came on strong with her retarded comments and general blathering. But for 2011, no student beats Zach Drew for sheer stupidity after he recently crossed over to the dark side to stand with Jim. While Mrs Wintercorn may not know her left from her right, she sure knew enough to hightail it outta Morningside and away from Jim Bakker. Zach not only keeps hanging on, he's now turning into a sales shill for Jim. Bakker probably bought this kid's integrity for two Twinkies and a Coke, but boy oh boy is Zach gonna learn the hard way. I hope he enjoys interrogation rooms, because the FBI's gonna be waterboarding him in one after it all comes crashing down for The Snake.

*Disclaimer* If we find out that Sasha is pregnant before the year is up, this prize will default to her.


Most Headache-Inducing Musical Performance
The Two-Headed Snake that is 'Paul Todd'
Do you like headaches? If the answer is a resounding 'Yes!', then have I got the father-son duo for you! They are called Paul Todd, because both of their names are 'Paul Todd'. Which one gets top-billing? I don't know, and I think that's going to cause some major bumpiness down the road in their way-too-close relationship. The son looks like an incarnated Satan. He does the singing and probably considers himself the true showman. The other face of this two-headed snake is the father, also Paul Todd, who looks like an incarnated sheep. This guy is the one packing those fat inbred asses into those narrow Morningside seats. His hair jumps immediately to the viewer's attention, as if to bite them. I don't know what sort of animal is resting atop his head, but I would wager a guess that whatever it is has already died. Why? Because if it were still alive, the music Paul Todd plays would have woken that thing up and caused it to howl, bark or hiss at him. His music is, in a word, intolerable.

Non-artist's rendition of non-musician's music
He thrashes about behind multiple keyboards, arms and legs flying at keys and pedals as if he were having an epileptic seizure. The noise this thrashing produces might be considered torture if used during interrogations. I once took the time to draw a picture of what this noise looks like within my own mind. It's horrible. Nothing complements anything else, there is no balance, it's all just colors added to a page. That is Paul Todd's music. Just random musical notes added to the air, and I use the term 'musical' as lightly as possible. If that shit transmits out of our atmosphere and into space, we are assured that alien life will either avoid visiting our Earth entirely out of fear, or that alien life will certainly come to visit Earth out of anger. The sound produced by the Paul Todd duo simply does not leave room for any middle ground.

What surprises does Jim Bakker have in store for us in 2012? Which new natural disasters will he exploit to sell product? How many prophecies will fail? Will Jim downplay the phony, un-Christian end of the world prediction for Dec 21 2012, or will he mention it incessantly to bully his viewers into buying foodbuckets? Will Zach still be lounging around Morningside, or will he be cast aside like Trystan and everyone else before him? Will Kevin Shorey bulldoze his way into the 400lb realm?

Tune in to the Jim Bakker Show to find out!

It matters not to me if Ron is Jewish or not. He calls it like it is. Don't you agree?

All I Can Add...As you pointed out you have to go hunting out John 3:16. You have to get past the BIG headlines warning the end of the world is near message. I don't care about what their words say about their mission...their words are cheap. Time to start putting Jesus first and live it out!

Hey Persnickety....Are you saying you're better than Ron because he is Jewish? You wouldn't be insinuating that God loves you more than Ron because you are one of those "Holier-than-thou" Morningside christians, are you? Can you explain your remarks better. We simple minded, bad people, want to understand what you meant by your comments.

THANK YOU RON FOR NOT ONLY EXPOSING JIM THE SHYSTER BAKKER AND ALL HIS CON GAMES, BUT THIS MESSAGE BOARD ALSO HELPS US TO UNDERSTAND HOW HE STAYS IN BUSINESS. I AM AMAZED BY THE STUPID REMARKS FROM THE CONTEMPTIBLE, SELF RIGHTEOUS, CHRISTIANS THAT BACK HIM UP!

Re: All I can add....

I can't find what you are describing on the website. I see "Morningside" on the bar near the top of the home page, but I don't see a "ministry" page? If you could go to the correct web page on your computer, copy the full web address, and paste it here, I'd be able to see what you are referring to.

Am I correct that Jim is not preaching during the Morningside services, and that an associate pastor runs that ministry?

Awaiting The Sex Scandal said...

Yes. The wearing of any hat in the world does not take away from the fact that it is being worn by a complete fraud, liar, tyrant, bi-sexual, adulterer, ex-con, and ex-con associating confidence man. He will eventually be brought down by his own greed AGAIN.

Anonymous said...

What!!! That statue cost that? Its true I heard them saying the floor couldn't hold it. How is that bringing the gospel to anyone by buying a statue for 40 thousand? Building a personal pool. Going on numerous paid vacations by the ministry. Buying homes and cars. All With very very poor people's money? Plastic surgery? Who ever takes up for him saying that is ok... Is really well paid themselves. Someone should start a show about ministry's on tv... To show people what these so called Pastor's

Interesting comment, 4:38!

We were just talking about how filmmakers should be watching this train wreck and get some investigative reporting done on Jimbo. It would make a terrific movie - there's no screenwriter alive who could make this crap up!

A reality show is a great idea! God knows we have enough Bubbas on the tube what with Hog Killers, Gator Shooters, Swamp Loggers, Pawn Stars, Moonshiners, Gold Rushers, Axe Men ....

A show on Crooked Evangelical "Ministers" would be far more entertaining.

Just think of all the fake criers that could be featured!

Wow! That's GREAT! :-)))

No preaching at morningside. Just insulting audience members for moving around and him selling stuff. That is it. People are insulted for coming in to sit down during live tapings. It's a disgrace.

burnjimburn said...

just because he wears the hat does not mean that he is preaching about Jesus Christ, if i wear a Red Sox hat does that mean i play pro ball? i guess i could wear the hat then tell people that i obviously play because of the hat. i could even post pictures of it on my facebook then everyone will know that i play for the Red Sox and cant even argue against it because there is the proof...i mean even if i never get on the field and play while thousands of people watch.

bakkersajerk said...

I'm not a tough guy. Just dismayed by the Bakker backers. I had way too much time over the holidays to research Jim. That's where I found out about Morningstar, which is on the grounds of Heritage.
I realized then, even if Jim goes back to prison, there will be another shyster preacher, like Joyner, step in to replace him. That's where I lost some humor. So, enjoy your journey with Jim, and don't fake cry too long after he's gone because there'll be a new jerk taking his place PDQ. There's evidently no shotage of them and zombies to follow them.

When Jim Bakker was told back in the day that he would never preach again, that was a prediction that came true, he sells stuff doesn't preach or teach anything

Brother Dortch said...

Hi everyone and let me take a moment out to deal with the facts as I know them to be and not a bunch of speculation. First of all, the Sunday morning services held at Grace Chapel at Morningside have been moved down to 2:30 p.m. Sunday afternoons. This is according to the Bakker website (click on Morningside and then Church Services). They also have both men’s and women’s Bible study there on two different evenings. The “Associate Pastor” did not actually take the place of Bakker in the Sunday services, he took the place of Kevin Shorey. Bakker had quit preaching there and assigned the Sunday services to Kevin who, after his very short lived departure, was not able to preach there because of departing. The Morningside real estate webpage used to advertise to anyone who either bought or rented a condo that it would include Sunday services with Kevin Shorey. Kevin was then replaced by an elderly gentleman who Jim introduced on his show as an “Associate Pastor” and the audience was told it was he who was now preaching at Grace Chapel. I, personally, saw this broadcast and heard this introduction. There have been a lot of “Associate Pastors” who have worked for Bakker at Morningside and they have turned over as rapidly as all the rest of his highly dissatisfied help. If what the anonymous poster above says is true and there is no “Associate Pastor” there, then Bakker must have pissed off yet one more person and the Chapel Services are shut down. This, if true, would greatly surprise me since I am certain that both the owner of Morningside and Bakker want the Chapel services to continue. Anybody who has THE FACTS and not a bunch of speculation is welcome to prove me wrong. Zach Drew, Sasha Volz, Grandson James, and anyone else from Morningside reading this right now knows what the facts are and how about coming on here right now and filling us in on the status of your Sunday services at Grace Chapel. Thanks!

All I have to say is.............................................. said...

I'm out of here!! This website consist of 4 or 5 people, talking to each other under various alias. The only arguments here are ad hominem, "Oh, let's attack the people themselves, it is safer that way, if we attack the argument we might reveal how much we don't know". They should dedicate this site to the art of cheap shots and sucker punches, Oh, there are a couple of gentlemen here who adhere to the policy of "fair play", but they represent the exception to the rule. Remember one thing, Pastor Bakker's message is spreading like wildfire on TV, coast to coast, city to city and I hope someday maybe you all (all four of you) will join us and celebrate.

Well, I think there are far more than just 4 or 5 people here. What message is spreading like wildfire?

John 3:16 said...

Only 4 or 5 let's all of anonymous posters name ourselves. I will be John 3:16 from now on. We will see that there are many more than 4 or 5 posting what we know!

burnjimburn said...

All i have to say is....
your the one who started the cheap shots. when you cant make an argument sound good YOU write negative comments. sorry you dont have the ability to counter an argument. i guess because others arguments make sense they must not 'play fair'. boo hoo.

saying there are only 4 to 5 people on here making comments is just not accurate, look how many visits this blog has had. your just trying to negate this blog and make others coming here believe this group is small. your efforts to negate the truth and fun of this blog are gonna fail. just like jim is gonna get caught again...even though your worship at his feet.

Kelsey said...

Okay, okay. So I'm not going to get a direct link to the 3:16 hat. I can live with that. However, do you have any video of Jim teaching us all about the events surrounding Jesus' birth during the week of Christmas shows? I pretty clearly remember him telling me that it was going to be too late to order my food buckets in time for Christmas giving - but I'm drawing a blank when it comes to Jim passionately preaching about a census, wise men, no room at the inn....
That's sort of all we've been talking about in my church lately.

I know the game, it is a matter of a few poster clicking and bumping up the post multiple times. That is an old tactic that creates a fallacy of big numbers. Facts speak for themselve you have 12 legit members listed on the homepage. Wow!! what backing, Pastor Bakker must be trembling!! The only two who really take it serious and present sound arguments are Ron and Brother Dorch, the rest just are "tool passers" or throwing wood on the fire. They contribute, but their hearts are not really into it. More like "fence sitters". Good luck in your efforts to hurt Morningside, you are going to need it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We are attacking our opponent's character and not his argument! What a joke! Once again Bakker and his cronies are accusing others of what they are guilty of. Bravo "All I have to say" for knowing such a big word. Many of the arguments and statements are based on total facts by people who know what's going on from seeing it first hand. Some have been, or still are inside the compound. As the saying goes "the camera doesn't lie". Those who have Bakker figured out are not naive or stupid. We see and hear from Jim, Lori and their guests on the show what a sham this "ministry is". It is frightening that there are so many who are gullible enough to support this scam artist. If everything does fall apart as Jim says, it still is a fool who buys the junk that Jim is selling. A smart person would never give their hard earned money to a middle man who is a convicted felon. If you feel you need the things Jim is promoting go to reputable dealers to get it!

I wonder if all the fools supporting Bakker have bought his junk jewelery, caps, shirts, cds, etc. etc. I would like them to explain why they will need Kevin or Dino's cd's when they won't even have food to eat? While my children and grandchildren are starving I'll be jumping on that trampoline. lol When I am freezing and in the dark because I can't pay my electric and gas bill at least I can be thankful I didn't send Jim $500 for a toilet key, or a $1,000 for a scholarship to his fake college, or a $1,000 for Jims pool.....and on and on..... Geesh, wise up you people supporting Bakker!

Someone mentioned Dino's food buckets floating during the flood...Maybe that's what the rope bracelet is for... to rope them back in. I saw the show last week when Jim yells at the crowd.."do you hear ME? Are you listening!?? You must be brain dead or asleep!" Then Lori says "They're prosessing it." Why do the oldies stay for that abuse?

The rope bracelet is for when Bakker get's arrested again for fraud. he's going to use it to hang himself in the jail cell cause he wears penny loafers.

You know, I seem to recall that Kevin and his wife were supposed to be moving to Morningside (I think I heard this early in 2011). Does anyone know if he did move?

I can't imagine wanting to live there AND work there knowing all the turmoil associated with that place...

Sometimes a smaller man will pick on a bigger man cause it somehow elevates him, the picker mentally. Like the guy who always picked on Lennie in "of Mice and Men". Although I notice Reverend Doctor Jim has cooled it and has given Kevin a break lately. I'm not concerned about Lori, she can handle herself Kevin is very sweet and kind. Just a big kindhearted country boy.

bakkersajerk said...

Bro. D.
I'm curious about why you picked that name to post with. He was convicted to prison along side jim. You seem to know plenty of people inside morningside. Are you a relative of the convicted man or a former bakker backer? I'm not jerking you're chain, just wondering. Thanks.

Yes they fired this last pastor. And ended morning services. Why are people from Jim Bakker show getting on here and lying? They fired this last pastor who was doing Sunday services.

You can tell by text type. How someone types that it's not just a few posters. Of course people are not going to put their names here or log in with a real account. Jim Bakker says everyone who has went against him has been killed. Like he is a mafia boss murder. I take it as a threat. Ask some of his prior employees how they was treated.

burnjimburn said...

i like that you are comparing kevin to Lennie but neither of them are kind and lovable. if i recall lennie got shot in the back of the head because he murdered the 'little guys' wife. i do believe that shorey is a deviant who aids jim in stealing from widows and perverting the body of Christ. so yeah i guess lennie and kevin are a lot a like being they are both mentally handicapped bad guys who get a good rap when they dont deserve it. i guess just pity maybe.

They fired Pastor Gary! He is a good guy. No decent person lasts out there!

Well, it's certainly not the nicest thing to say if you are a Christian. I mean everyone who went against me is dead is what Michael Corleone would say. I'm not saying that is what Bakker's mindset was, probably not, just perculiar. maybe prison hardened him. Who Knows? Cameron, with all those young girls, and he always brings the prettiest with him. I find that more suspicious. Maybe he's agood man trying to do the right thing. I would like to see the rooms and check them for peep holes in that mansion they are building in "Mondovia???" of all places. I'm sorry I'm just not too easy when it comes to these so-called men of the cloth lately.

Lol. Fencesitter. That's the humor I have missed from this site.

Anonymous said...

Bakker and company wish evil for those who disagree with them. If they are true followers of Christ why don't they obey His teachings? Matthew 5:44 comes to mind: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.

To Jim and those who follow him are you being a good example to those who disagree with you?

Luke 6:27 "But I tell you Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.

If Jim was truly a humble man of the cloth he would be praying for his enemies, not speaking and hoping for curses on them.

This is the reason unbelievers have no time for christians. As a christian I am embarrassed by the ugly speech and conduct coming from Jim and and his followers. Jesus calls us to behave better than those who we feel are persecuting us. Matthew 5:47 "If you are only kind to your friends, how are you different from anyone else? Even the pagans do that.

I pray the people in Bakkers camp get into the word, get on their knees, and desire to change the world rather than condemn it! Romans 2:3 So when you, a mere man, pass judgement on them and yet do the same things, do you think you will escape God's judgement?

bakkersajerk said...

To the idiots at morningside I say follow your false prophet if you must.
To anyone else that's not braindead, steer clear of these end of the world types. There have been con artists preaching that forever.
If you are looking for a way to get to heaven then Christianity is the easiest path. Christ has paid for your sins. The bakkers of the world would have you believe otherwise. They invoke old testament and revelations to scare the shit out of you.
The old testament should not be used to scare people, it was to be discarded after Jesus died and paid for our sins.
Revelations. A book that was only included in the bible because the Catholic church could use its images to scare everyone.
I believe (and my wife thinks i'm nuts) that the book of revelations is an account of things that already happend at the time of its writing.
I am not agnostic, there must be a God. Otherwise, what is the universe expanding into, and where the hell did that speck of dust and the pressure that caused to explode come from.

Anonymous said...

Mama San,

Money does not buy heaven. Jesus said "The love of money is the root of all evil". Jim preaches that out of one side of his mouth, while begging for it out of the other.

God is not pleased when someone who claims to be a christian causes so much confusion and trouble.

Jim is teaching false doctrines. He needs to repent and mean it.

Do not let his claiming to be a christian confuse you. Look for good examples of christians. You won't find them if you look at Bakker and those who defend him.

Brother Dortch said...

Dear bakkersajerk:

You are more than correct when you say that Richard Dortch was far from perfect. As the right hand man to what will go down in the history of Christianity as being one of the smoothest and slickest con artists the faith has ever known, there were three things about Richard Dortch that caused me, in the end, to have respect for him.

When Richard Dortch, may he rest in peace, went to court the con games he shared with Bakker, at least as far as Dortch was involved, ended. Not only did he testify in court, but he testified against Bakker and not for him. I always admired him for that. I felt it took courage and a clear sense of finally seeing right from wrong for him to do that. Meanwhile, Bakker continued a very futile, if not totally bizarre, attempt to further his con artistry skills by attempting to con the very people who were prosecuting him by crawling under his attorney’s desk, in a fetal position, and bawling like a kindergarten child in an attempt to be ruled mentally incompetent to stand trial. Needless to say, after a thorough examination, Bakker was found not to be mentally ill and the trial continued.

The second thing that impressed me about Dortch was the fact that he would later sit down before the media and tell the national press, if I may paraphrase him, that both he and Bakker were so busy embellishing themselves in the materialistic pitfalls of the corrupt ministry, that they totally lost sight of what the original goal of the ministry was in the first place, i.e. to preach the word of God.

Finally, after both men were thrown out of the Assemblies of God church, Richard Dortch, unlike Bakker (who thumbed his nose at the whole notion and idea), completely climbed the rehabilitation ladder set forth before him by the AOG leadership and was not only welcomed back into the church as a member (after completing all the steps) but he was also re-ordained as an Assemblies of God Pastor.

I hope this answers the first part of your question and, regarding the second part, I would prefer to keep that aspect of my life private. I am sure you understand. Thanks!

Another guest this week scaring the crap out of the Morningside audience. The Rabbi is putting his spin of the controversial verses in Isaiah (which have more than one interpretation). Jim looks like at little kid on Christmas morning. Wheeeee!

Herr Doctor Bakker said...

I got a kick out of the recent show opening flash shots the other day. In the first frame we see Bakker greeting two new recruits, a heavy set Afro-American and an Appalacian looking chap, apparently right off the train. Bakker stands in the middle, directing them either to the right or left. The right chosen are sent to the studios, the left to the warehouse. The next shot we see the heavy set Black guy using a pallet jack, he is in training cause the supervisor points to an exact spot where he wants the load dropped. I guess that's how it is there, the photogenic, and articulate students go to the studios to learn state-of-the-art techniques. The wallflowers go to do manual labor. Effective and cost savings since they are not paid. The Master Media kids should unionize.

Anonymous said...

He still treats Kevin like a stagehand. Kevin sits farthest away from the inner circle, he, with all his senority, should sit in Zach's chair, just out of general principles. Zach's gesture of pointing to himself is superfluous and unnecessary. The audience knows him by now, the trouble is habit has taken over and if he does not point to himself he'll end up screwing the whole thing up, he might suspect that. Zach seems like a good boy but he's got to cut up being a bobble head too, if he expects to hit the big time preacher circuit.

Kool-Aid Kid said...

I watched the pretaping of a future Morningside Show today. Confusion is the word for 2012 for sure. Jim added another word as well. Explosions. He tagged that new word with " Watch Iran!". Give me a break. The next time there is an explosion in Iran he'll claim he knew that was going to happen. At the end of his sermon I can sum it up this way, Jim wants nothing but peace in his household (Lori expanded on that) but wants a hellish world of confusion in my world. Thanks for that Jim!

Iran or whatever country Jim's referring to uses that "electro bomb" on us we'll bomb them to the promised land with conventional nuclear weapons.

To 9:55, ^^^ You bring up a good point heaven and hell in my opinion is what you make of this life. I don't think people, who are mentally deficient or sick and commit a crime deserve hell. Do you? I mean they don't have the right facilities to judge. People born dirt poor or are abused don't deserve further punishment and if they get it, God is one mean Bastard and unfair to boot. Even if a guy like Hitler was born with a mental incapacity, why should he be condemn to eternal hell. No, this is a simplified version, but if there is a heaven, I think we are all entitled to go there.

Bakker, without Mondo, was talking today about the hungry sending 50 people into a store that only has one person working there and then all 50 of them stealing everything in the store. He said this is Biblical.

Anonymous said...

Talk's cheap. Bakker's got a reference for every occasion. That does not mean crap. It only means Bakker has a over ripe imagination, the guy was OK at the beginning years ago, but then he became obsessive with his claptrap. If this world gets hit by an asteroid I don't care how muchof that survival food you store, it is only going to prolong your suffering for a few days, if by some miracle your not consumed by the explosion and after effect. Look at the Tatunga Blast in Russia about 100 years ago, that area was whiped out, Bakker is a prophet of false hope, why even give credence to anything he says in that area (areas of destruction by natural causes).

Hey everybody, listen up this is the "Bakker honest truth"(as we say at Morningside). Jim is a sweet man with a genius level intellect. It pains me that people claim false evil against a guiding light like the Bakker ministry. He knows what he is doing is helping people. Life-size statues of Jesus aren't what this blogger claims(making money for Jim), those statues help people you just don't realize how. That sticker on the water bottle is probably just the bottle turned around, be real he drank that Mississippi River Water, he drank that water as proof of his might. Why would he fake that. If you really wanna know Jim, sit through one of his shows and then make your allegations that he isn't a prophet. He will touch you in ways you could never understand you hate mongers. Jim is super powerful man who knows who his enemies are and he holds his anger back from striking you down. He could have all of you sent to Hell if you don't stop with your ridiculous allegations. To those of you who get on here supporting Jim in his amazing love filled mission, kudos-keep up the good work.

Cameron Is Not My Dad said...

Here is an interesting question. Let's say 50 people do rob a store and then as they are riding down the highway with all that stolen food, etc. police pull them over and arrest all 50 for armed robbery. When interviewed, they say they heard about this idea on the Jim Bakker Show. Could Bakker then be arrested for being an accessory?

What a fool 6:27 is. The Bakker fools keep proving that they have no discernment! Jim does not send anyone to hell. God sends people to hell! God has a big problem with those who speak curses and wish evil for others. In the way that you judge you will be judged! If these people at Morningside keep talking like this we will see God bring that place down so fast it will make your head spin! I have sat in that audience and I have seen the taping of the show. I know for a fact that Jim lied several times the day I was there. I know people inside the compound who also are not infatuated with Jim so they are using wisdom when appraising his teachings. They are becoming more and more unhappy there. Jim is only powerful in the minds of those who adulate him. Be careful you who think you are christians and are worshipping Jim. Thou shall have not other Gods before Me.....did you forget that commandment?!

I was an assistant to Jim and Lori. I have been cussed out. You wouldn't believe the language. Told I am stupid, dumb, idiot and worthless among just a few. Screaming in my face. Things thrown. Ive heard them talk that way to lots of people incluing Char Graham. They are both divas and get whatever they want. They are constantly thinking up new things to make money so the ministry can support this life style they have achieved. Everything is hidden under the ministry or Char Graham's name.

you can see how sincere jim is by the fruit he bears. he has adopted inner city children, supports orphans so they dont become sex slaves, and is even opening a house to support pregnant women who do not want to have abortions. he is trying to get people prepared for the end times, its good to be scared because reality is scary.

its not fare to make claims that he is a bad person based off of his past sins, everyone has done bad things in their lives. you attack the masters media school, why? is there any other school that tries to train youth to operate religion oriented media? television is the greatest way to teach people about jim bakker.

IBJB says "television is the greatest way to teach people about Jim Bakker." You got that right! What we are learning is disgusting. Your remarks confirmed what we already knew, the Jim Bakker show has nothing to do with God. "television is the greatest way to teach people about Jim Bakker" for once a Bakker groupie speaks the truth....since the show is all about Jim and nothing about God it's time to bring this sham ministry to an end. Thank you IBJB, it couldn't have been put more succinctly...The Jim Bakker show is not christian programming. It is all about Jim. Time for the government to start making some arrests and collecting the taxes owed by the Jim Bakker QVC show.

Awaiting The Sex Scandal said...

If you were present at the live taping of the show today, Thursday 1/5/12, here is what you would have seen. Bakker stopped in the middle of a speech and told someone in the audience to please not move around because it was distracting him. Audience members were told not to chew gum and that was not permitted. Then toward the end of the show people were walking out and he said he had to hurry because he was losing his audience. All this happened after almost nobody showed up to sit in the audience and they had to get staff members to sit in the chairs to make it look like enough of an audience was there. On another day people showed up and Bakker was bitching because they all wore black so he made the men all take off their black tops and coats and then sent someone into his office to get bright colored sportcoats for all of them to wear. The whole show is a fraud. Bakker, who dresses like a homeless bum most of the time, telling others how to dress? That about says it all.

You Morons, Pastor Bakker is one of the most dedicated and sincere preachers on the air. Actions speak louder then words and Pastor's actions have spoken volumns about the love he has in his heart for humanity. To the above poster who claims(unsubstatiated) that the Pastor cusses, it is a completely ridiculous claim, like 99% of the material in this forum. For every 1 poster here who has a negative comment there are 50 in reality that have nothing but praise for that Ministry.

Do you believe that you are a loving christian when you call others morons! If there are that many who are for Jim, and know how to represent their case in a Christlike way, let's hear from them.

Cindy B. said...

The one or two people here defending Bakker seem lost after coming here and finding out obvious sinful traits about their hero, "Pastor Jim". They obviously didn't know he is bi-sexual either and they are scared to death to address that fact so they all avoid it. You can see, from the amount of staff turnover, that something is rotten in Denmark. I think those few employees/students who idolize this criminal would serve themselves well to simply read these postings for a while and learn rather than making fools of themselves like they are doing now.

Sorry, but I need stronger concrete evidence then some posts by people with strong and obvious bias. I would expect the same even from people who defend Pastor Jim. Hear-say and innuedo and second source material may be juicy and cultivating. But I'm not the type to subscribe to rags like the National enquirer, guy was at the taping of the show, saw this and that or what he thinks he saw, add a little spice for good measure and the equilibrium is all out of whack. Until I see it for myself I'll give Pastor Jim the benefit of the doubt. Right

11:18^^ oh so you dont want him to go because he might take advantage of jim bakker, what do you think about jim selling all of his products for around double what they would cost elsewhere? is it Christian to store up goods for yourself?

But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven where neither moth nre rust doth corrupt and whre thieves do not break through nor steal Matthew 6:20

take therefore no though for the morrow: for the morrow shall take though for the things of itself. Suffiecient unto the day is the evil therof Matthew 6:34

Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?

why worry about storing years of food? especially Christians, this goes against what God wants us to do. Especially the frog trying to cry to cause a panic.
Can any bakker zombies support jim against these verses?

fencesitter said...

Keep it clean...so you would rather give a convicted felon, known to steal from people, who refuses to pay his full debt to society by paying for his back taxes, the benefit of the doubt rather than look at what these people are saying. hmmm maybe you should try and think on your own and not just blindly follow what either side is saying. are you enough of an individual or did jim eat your brains and turn you into a mindless zombie?
how about you look into the facts yourself, maybe try to answer some of the opinions you just bashed.
but you probably wont because it is so much easier to give your money to jim and dumbly smile like you did the world some good and receive some kind of stupid worthless love gift that you can show to people you know and act like your some kind of martyr for giving money to a deviant thief.

Ron said...

Q: Why do Bakker's loyal followers never answer the main questions about his fake-crying, fake prophesies and more?
A: Because they can't do so honestly without implicating their Lord, Jim Bakker.

There's an entire blog post here which spells out only some of the disgusting things Jim was engaged in for 2011, yet Bakker's Brainiacs don't seem to care. How can you learn if you don't listen?

The scariest thing I'm learning from the comments supporting Jim is that I'm not sure which ones are sarcastic and which are real? Do I laugh or cry?

New post is coming either late tonight or tomorrow. I've been unbelievably busy at the factory shipping out Silver Sol...did you know that stuff cures malaria?

BTW, you'll have to wait a little while for coverage of the Rabbi since show coverage takes more time than I have right now. The upcoming post will be something a little different, but still worthwhile.

I feel sorry for the one or two Bakker supporters. They remind me so much of the people in Jonestown following the Rev Jim Jones.

That bracelet that supposedly induces sleep or cures insomnia or something. What a crock! Do you actually believe that works? Thinking like that went out with the "snake oil" cures. How is that based on any type of science beside Voodo? It's the year 2012, get with it people.

LOL! The Bakker supporter criticizing a person for being obese. Isn't that sort of like the pot calling the kettle black? Where would this ministry be without obesity? How about non existent. LOL !!!!!!

Is that Big Afro-American Kid still there? The one who was on "America's got Talent" and Tony Orlando and Jim acted like he and his siblings were the next "New Kids on the Block" orsomething.

You are talking about Michael from Voices of Glory. He was enrolled and attended the Masters Commission program for a short while. He is no longer there. He, his brother, and his sister are very talented. They are a very good family. Like all the other good and Godly people they moved on to better things.

To the person making sarcastic insults to the people eating the snacks at the Jim Bakker show, I have a few questions for you:

I wonder why Jim has fattening and unhealthy snacks available to the audience since he preaches against eating this way. Is it because the snacks are donated free, or because it's cheap food? Why put temptation in front of people? Why doesn't he offer healthy snacks? Do unhealthy people buy more of his health products? Why as a christian would you ridicule someone and not pray for them? Are you perfect?

I have a friend that is a die hard Jim Bakker supporter. She got one of those sleep bands because she doesn't sleep well. She continued to complain about her lack of sleep after using it for sometime. When we questioned why it didn't work she said "oh, it works once you get to sleep." We couldn't hold back and had a good laugh. She was not happy that she could not make a good defense for buying it. As her friend it makes me sad and mad to see her buy into everything Jim sells. She is on social security and can't afford all the stuff she buys from Jim. She is on food stamps and medicaid and every government program available to her. So in essence those working and paying taxes are actually paying for all this junk many of these seniors are buying from Jim. My friend is sweet and naive and this really is bothering us who care for her!

I am glad to read that other people are concerned about this hypocrisy also. Wish she would read this stuff and learn from others. We sure can't tell her anything. As I read these posts I understand others frustrations who can't make family or friends wise up. Some of the comments by the others supporting Bakker don't seem to question anything Jim says or does either. Sad, it's all so sad!

I think there are a lot of good people connected with Bakker. They mean well but are just sucked in by his cons. Jim is smart and talented but int he ways of deceit.

To Bakker Hanger-oners: Before you invest money or more trust into that guy and start buying blessed books, do this. Go to Project Gutenberg, a free online classic book site, scroll in the title "the Ghosts" by author "Robert G.Ingersoll" and read that lecture of the above title. It pretty much encapsulates what I see is your situation. It might be helpful reading.

With students coming and going, sooner or later someone will come on line and tell us really what is going on. The problem is that we will never know which poster was actually a student and which poster actually is telling the truth. One way might be through a facebook entry which identifies the person. And even that is not guaranteed.

What does Lori's brother Mark do on the show? I watched a Merry Christmas segment via the internet when everybody wished a Merry Christmas. They listed the names and departments except it did not list Mark's department.

Anonymous said...

Mark kisses Bakker's butt and also works on the cameras I think. One must wonder if his life hit the skids to have him end up at Morningside.

Anonymous said...

Yea, how messed up do you have to be to work at Morningside. And the only reason why you were hired is because you are Lori's sister

Lori's brother must be the janitor, on the Christmas show Bakker thanked all the people who made the show such a hit even the janitorial staff. I think he might the head janitor and go-to guy. The clutch hitter for the team.

So, you can only have cake and coffee if you promise not to tell on jim? You zombies are truely idiots. Did Susan the witch eat your donuts before you turned on her?

Brother Dortch said...

Ron, I think it is high time you moderated. Can't you see what is happening here?

There is either a Morningside college student or a Morningside employee saying there is a lady who sits in the audience that is fat.

Next, they are accusing the fat lady of stealing cookies from another table after those audience members have left for the day and that's where I draw the line!

Awaiting the sex scandal, You made me lol with that comment about the cakes almost chocked on my coffee. Thanks

Any man like Pastor Bakker who helps a poor less fortunate is a good man. Don't forget he donates a lot of those food buckets to homeless shelters and Lori's house is a decent cause to associate yourself with, you folks have a right to free speech and an opinion, but your method of operation is pretty unfair, I mean give him some credit.

Anonymous said...

So I would get some credit (like Jim)from the robbery I commited after donating some money to the poors? And I can spend the rest for my own sake with no guilt? GREAT IDEA!!!

Temperature recorded in the city of Boston MA today was in the 60s. Temperature recorded in Fairfax, VA today was also in the 60s. Today is the 7th of Jan. 2012, "JANUARY"!!!!!!. I see it as Rev.Dr.Bakker says, a year of constant "confusion".

I have heard Mr Jim Bakker cuss people out first hand at Morningside. So whoever you are, saying he doesn't is a liar. God is watching you and seeing that you are lying. God watches you, he really does.

Some people find fault with saints. said...

to 5:57; Yes, God is watching you right now and wondering what is (although God Knows)motivating you to besmirch a man who never did anything to you. Oh!!! He raised his voice to you!!! Man!! What an evil man he must be for doing that. Give me a break!!!! Grow up already!!!!! Have you ever been in the Military? Have you ever had a real job? Being too sensitive is not a sin, but maybe should be.

When I think of the students that I have seen on this show, I would be thankful but shocked to learn that any of them were in the military. Would be interested to know their employment background.

Jim Bakker does NOT give to the poor. He takes from the poor. Ask for his financial records. I dare you. I dare them to make it public record. I promise you he does NOT give to the poor. He spends that money on a tabernacle that the masters student do not stay in nor use! He used it to put in a $50,000 pool. He used it to get a $300,000 home on the lake in Lampe at the end of Pokeberry Lane.he uses it for him and lori's plastic surgery. For a $45,000 statue of Jesus. He uses it to support his luxury life. How can any Jim Bakker supports here say any of this is ok? And that is just a little bit of what he blows poor people's money on!

Jim Bakker shouldn't be cussing people out ever! It's not ok. It's not the military!!! It's supposedly a ministry! I have never been cussed out a a work place. Nobody I've ever known has been cussed at a legit job. It's verbal abuse! Oh wait it's ok because he claims he is a profit. Oh my bad.

Jim Bakker is verbally abusive. Ask the 10 past secretaries. I've heard they are getting together to write a tell all book called "inside Jim Bakkers Executive Offices" he should be nervous actually.

Hmm, easy apply for the executive secretary position. Or just come volunteer for anything inside.ma person could learn a bunch just setting in on the shows and listening around.

He spends most time now I noticed at Pokeberry. I live near there and see them often there. The students are kept seperate. Girls at morningside condo and boys at tabernacle. Because they was partying too much. Char Graham lives on property in an apartment building down the road from Morningsdie.

None of the Morningside Kids were ever in the Military!!!! Are you nuts!!!! That's my problem with Zach, if he was more worldly and a bit more mature having experienced the bad sides of life I would say this kid has survived the test of an ordeal, but he strikes me as a Mama's boy who never had calouse one on his hands. I don't want this kid telling me about life's hardaches, he still has his mother's milk on his lips. Bakker thinks Zach's so wise, Bakker should be ashamed of himself, it's all mumbo jumbo, Bakker makes these kids to be minature Mother Theresas, Kids don't make preachers, Jesus didn't start till he was like 33 and these kids are doing it at 18. Baloney!!!!!!!!!!

At 8;09........ Depends, She had a bunch of problems with things, maybe the 80s were like a haze or fog. Possible, but I agree the Bakker name was pretty infamous back then. Tammy didn't help things by intially bad mouthing homosexuals but dismissing all that when she had the change at superstardom with a show on mainstream TV with JiM J. Bullock, "Jim J. and Tammy Faye".

What happened with Susan Ruiz? I used to see her on the JBS and know she sold a house and bought a condo and moved to Morningside with her daughter (I think) I believe she also bought a 2nd place in Morningside to rent out. She used to be with the audience and sometimes came on stage. She always seemed to be supportive and was "donating" money when JB was begging for money "to keep the ministry on the air". She seems to have disappeared and I was wondering if she still had her condos and still lives there. It seems odd that if she still lives there, she seems to dropped out of sight. I was wondering if she got dumped on or what happened with her (and her daughter).
