PETER POPOFF (MR. WACK-A-DOO)
AS THE SONG LAMENTS
"Oh Lord, won't you buy me a Mercedes Benz... My friends all drive Porsches, I must make amends… Worked hard all my lifetime, no help from my friends, ...So Lord, won't you buy me a Mercedes Benz.”
Well we found the guy who had the Porsche. They must have been talking about Peter Popoff, a supreme Pentecostal "WACK-A- DO” who did own a $90,000, 2006 Porsche Carrera just for the record inspiring the others I guess to get Rolls Royces.
Stepping up to the plate both Creflo Dollar and Benny Hinn hit it out of the ballpark. A Mercedes was not good enough, so they opted for the upgrade to first-first class and collected Rolls Royce's which they declared as gifts from their constituents in the church (suckers is the official street translation for the word worshipper used here).
I don't suppose the ongoing inquiry and investigation from Senator Grassley's inquest in their funding might of had something to do with this because Creflo Dollar sold one of his Rolls Royce’s valued at $280,000 gifted to him by the World Changer’s church, according to a BET.com blog. He gave the proceeds to the children’s ministry.
"Not because Creflo should cater to the pressures from criticism, but simply because goodwill dictates that he forego an open display of material possessions. Christians are admonished to give up what may be perfectly permissable when our entitlements severely hinder the weak”. Pardon me and let me just call it what it is. "What a righteous sanctimonious crock of crap. This is a "four bulls for sure and possibly five bulls because these are only cars.
POPOFF - A REAL CRETIN
Popoff was born in Germany. In a message entitled "10,000 Miles of Miracles", Popoff claimed he had been born in "the bomb shelters of Berlin at the end of World War II". Other sources indicate he was born in Hamburg in 1946. Hmm, thats after the war. Actually irrelevant, he is a thief and liar whatever his birthdate. He must of studied at the Goebbels University of public speaking.
During his appearances at church conventions in the 1970s, Popoff routinely and accurately stated the home addresses and specific illnesses of his audience members, a feat he allowed them to believe was due to divine revelation and "God given ability"
Not quite what happened, it was God given miniature electronics and a receiver stuffed in his ear. Members of CSICOP reported that Popoff was using a radio to receive messages, Popoff denied it and said the messages came from God.
At the time of his popularity, skeptic groups across the United States printed and handed out pamphlets explaining how Popoff's feats could be done. Popoff would tell his audience that the pamphlets were "tools of the devil". there goes the Satan blame game again.
He got caught, it was proven. "Popoff is a jack-off became the chant". Nevertheless his scam took in 23 million dollars. That could of helped a lot of folks, needy folks right there in their homegrown church. This guy is a confirmed jack-off.
I YAMM ORDAINED...not quite, more like self inflicted greed.
"There is not a single televangelist on this planet, man, or woman, who has been ordained by God". God always uses volunteers and does not hire nor does he have a Human Relations Department (HR Office) to handle the myriad of complaints of those who have been begetted by these frauds.You never heard Moses asking for a raise, shorter hours, a faster chariot, new sandals, nothing period just the best for his people.
Here is one of the Cro-Magnon boiler-plate letters you will get from the REV. POPOFF extolling his sincere need and prayers on your behalf. Probably his first lady while burping down a pizza uses the iconic old word processor to stick your name in the boiler plate and we blocked out the first and second name of the person who had received this trash. Eleven or so times your name gets mentioned to bring familiarity. Read this, written by an idiot, to be absorbed by a person in need who will at times believe anything.
If you send this guy a dime, you really need some help professionally, this guy is a crook and a liar. A really good laugh is when his slightly rotund wife and him sit there on set with all the cards and letters he gets and she reads them. Hilarious!
