Seeing so many of these “Harvest” bumper stickers everwhere, I felt obliged to to comment on a particular story. Apparently, demons are responsible for taking money away from
charlatan, conman, preacher, Rod Parsley of the World Harvest Church. So, he is asking for a little help.
The headline of the appeal for donations reads: “Will you help me take back what the devil stole?”
He really needs help.
When asked to comment yesterday, Parsley’s World Harvest Church issued a statement saying the recession caused a decline in member giving in 2009, which has led to a fourth-quarter deficit of $3 million despite a 30 percent reduction in the budget.
That’s quite a deficit. Wait, also we have:
This year, the church settled for $3.1 million with a family whose son was spanked at its day-care center in 2006, to the point his buttocks and legs were covered with welts and abrasions.
The boy, then 2, said he was spanked with a “knife” by a substitute teacher. His parents, Michael and Lacey Faieta, believe it was a ruler.
Clearly nothing suspicious going on there. That nasty demonic recession has had effects not even I could have forseen.
