strange thoughts at work – televangelists

Weird things that happen during the work day.

I use the term “minister” loosely below.

I’m minding my own business at work, and the name Creflo Dollar pops into my head. To me, a fairly boring televangelist.

It’s all beause I’m in a forum involving shortwave radio, and an earlier deceased minister named Bro Stair of Walterboro, South Carolina came up. His fondness was broadcasting by shortwave radio and satellite link.

Then I thought back to Reverend Ike (Frederick J. Eikerenkoetter II). As a child, I used to hear his wailing cadence coming out of AM radios everywhere. “You can’t lose with the stuff I use.” “Do you want pie in the sky when you die, or do you want your pie now with ice cream on top?” Absolutely unforgettable.

In my opinion, all swindlers.

As far as charisma, I would rank them like this:

— Reverend Ike

(big gap)

— Bro Stair

(another big gap)

— Creflo Dollar
