They never got anything right. Never one prediction came through. And they're still at it today!
I loved watching them for the unintentional humor which this video perfectly captures.
"What about a partial rapture?"
That poor cat Finnegan.
They make a shitload of money making people crazy.
They do not spout hate, r1.
R7, they do but in their own subtle way. They supported the militia movement of the 1990s which culminated with Timothy McVeigh. They initially said he was a hero but quickly changed their minds.
I just looked at their Dec. 1 broadcast. Those people are marvels of good, clean living, plastic surgery and really bad wigs. Keep in mind he's 81 and she's 80. I'm shocked that she can still blink!
Thanks for bringing back memories, OP. I used to catch them, Ernest Angley (the guy sweat buckets), and Jim and Tammy Faye, of course, back in high school during summer break days. Ah, and the unforgettable Jimmy [italic]"I have sinned!"[/italic] Swaggert, too! They provided endless amusement to a bored, sarcastic teen.
I'm sorry, but she's no Jan Crouch.
The ghost of Tammy Faye Bakker Mesner
The Van Impes were banned from TBN.
OH Myyy GAWD, I can't believe those clowns are still on the air, I really thought they both died a long time ago. She used to wear the most sexless garments ever. I would see them late at night when nothing else was on and I would stare at them in bleary-eyed amazement. I could never watch a whole show of theirs, it was just too stupid.
Right you are Jack.
Rexella looks like she should've been a nosy neighbor on Knot's Landing, or Desperate Housewives.
I used to love them! Back in my adolescent fundamentalist pre-reality youth. I also used to watch earnest angley and even visited his church once. He hit me on the forehead but I didn't fall over. Ha Does anyone remember Dr. D. James Kennedy? Or anyone from around pittsburgh remember a guy named rich rossie who wound up almost killing his wife?
R18, my granny LOVED Ernest Angley. She went to one of his crusades once and was apparently more suggestible than you. I asked her what it felt like to be "slain in the Spirit," and she said, "How the hell should I know? I was out cold!"
Dr. Gene Scott was a fun and cranky old coot.
Gene Scott's second wife was a one-time porn star.
So the second wife and former porn star was the one who took over for him doing the preaching? I remember seeing her. She used to sing too...
Rexella! She sounds like the lead villainess in one of the Final Fantasy games.
R7 is the kind of idiot who declares that the word "hate" has to be used before someone can be said to be hateful.
These money-grubbing assholes have been grinding on their right-wing, nutty, politicized, out-of-the-mainstream agenda for years, and they have tacitly spit on every progressive cause one can think of.
That's one hell of a facelift the spry 80 year old Rexella's got there. But the happy couple has taken a dark, dark turn with the Muslim and Obama hate...yes real hate...in this recent video.
I used to watch their show for laughs. I even ordered some free doomsday bumper sticker from them. Hell I ALWAYS had the Christian channel on for laughs when I was a teen. Our network had this ridiculous show aimed at Christian youth called JCs Place. It was hosted by Pastor Nate.
Pastor Nate, not surprisingly, has gayface. He's now an administrator at the clown college where Jim and Tammy Faye met and fell in love.
