Peter Popoff's Latest Outrage
So a few days ago I dozed off one night on the couch while watching TV only to awaken at 4 am to an obscenity. Seems televangelist Peter Popoff - you remember, the guy James Randi exposed as a fraud - was running infomercials (on the Discovery Channel no less!). Popoff's product? For a 'contribution to his ministry', he would send you a packet of 'holy water', which one could apply to one's self and pray for God to give you 'a financial miracle.' It was complete with a number of testimonies from people claiming to have used this and God sent them large sums of money. I immediately called the number listed to hear about this, or at least tell that outfit to go fuck itself for exploiting vulnerable people in debt but found the advertised phone number led to a phone sex line! Anybody else encounter this shit as well?

Hahaha a sex line? Maybe the church has some secret agreement. Peter will do his run-of-the-mill horseshit infomercial, but *wink *wink, it's really for hot nasty phone sex!

I hope that the world turns, and things get better. But what I hope most of all is that you understand what I mean when I tell you that, even though I do not know you, and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you. With all my heart, I love you. - V for Vendetta

I wish he would pop off. Why an educational TV network like discovery is advertising it I don't know. There should be at least a law banning adverts of this kind. If you can't advertise cigarettes or gambling then you also should add to that the banning of bullshit like miracle water. Its a discrage that this guy isn't jailed yet but let me guess politicians don't want to take action as there scared to lose voters instead of attempt to make a positive contribution to the world.

I often see his show late, late, LATE at night but have never called. I usually watch for 15 minutes if there is nothing else on cause I can't believe my eyes and ears. What an oil-man!
