Televangelist Jim Bakker made a name for himself in the 80s as one of the worst examples of “prosperity gospel” scammers, eventually landing him in prison with the trial judge denouncing him for making “those of us who do have a religion being lampooned as saps from money-grubbing preachers or priests.”
After a series of legal maneuvers, Bakker managed to get his 45-year sentence reduced to just 5 and now he’s out and instead of telling followers how they can get rich, he’s peddling dehydrated survivalist food in preparation for the end of the world which he tells viewers of his new TV show is coming soon.
So what does Bakker’s food taste like? Well, if you ask him, it’s just amazing. For a more neutral opinion, Sploid asked professional chef Greg Lauro to whip up some of the dishes and give his thoughts:
If that’s not enough to dissuade you about Bakker’s newest racket, you’ll undoubtedly find his explanation for his crimes believable. Apparently the reason he committed multiple frauds in the past was actually the fault of witches:
A journalist, television producer, and web designer, Matthew Sheffield is a Bold contributor. Previously, he was the managing editor for the Washington Examiner, a columnist at the Washington Times, and the founder and executive editor of NewsBusters.
bahaha so is he now making witches brew??
Somehow he never got charged with rape. He should have been.
I can’t believe anyone would buy anything from the con man.
