This is terrible
I saw this on the Rachel Maddow show tonight. It was a cheap shot and probably not all that important in the grand scheme of things but I laughed out loud. They actually made one of these!
Moral of the story? There might be a few.
The more high profile of a leader you are, the more necessary it becomes to have people you trust who will call you out when you are being a huge idiot.
Maybe there is a reason Jesus was born in a dirty manger in the middle of nowhere instead of center-stage as the Emperor of Rome.
Whoever wants to be the greatest must become the least. Whoever exalts himself will be humbled.
I think there is a certain personality that is attracted to what these men do as televangelists. And I think that personality also makes them more likely to seek the highs of affairs and prostitutes and drugs.
But perhaps most importantly . . .
Never, under any circumstances, become a televagelist.
