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.
These people are sweet. Choose your enemies. These people are not my enemy.
My biggest problem is when Jack starts talking I don't know if he's saying Jesus or Cheezits coming back. Then I look at Rexella and think "Yeah, I'd bone her once of I had the chance."
She looks like a 2 dollar hooker. Doesn't that bitch know soliciting outside the gates of heaven is a sin?
Wow, I had no idea they were that old. I have to admit, they look and sound very good for being in their 80s.
Has anyone ever referred to her as "Sexy Rexie?" No? Didn't think so.
They two doomsdayers have inspired my new drag name (and DL nom de plume).
The only thing I've ever heard sbout them is they were said to be very close friends with the Bush family.
I feel sorry for all of you, you don't know anything about the bible or you would know that Jack VanImpe is telling the truth. You must be very afraid or you wouldn't speak so harshly about them. Please pray GOD forgives you and ask JESUS to come into your heart before it's too late.
Anyone using filthy language in the post below has degraded themselves, ask forgiveness and be thankful for a merciful God!
I will be praying for all of YOU🙏
lol r44 is funny. It thinks its people.
Bitch I don't need to read the bible I've seen Jesus Christ Superstar a dozen times.
R44 How can you believe in a merciful God if he allowed someone to name you RuAnn?
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
