I Missed This Last Month . . .


. . . but check out how Evangelist Kenneth Copeland is using his new $20 million jet.

And since I always wanted to know what the Copeland Compound looked like (it's just southeast of Newark), I found this Google satellite view of it. Sweet. Nice runway.

God forbid Mrs. Bill Clinton becomes president. She will order ATF to go in with guns blazing.

If I'm not mistaken the runways on Copeland's property were not built by him and have been there since World War II when that land was part of an military training base that was closed sometime in the late 40's. You'll notice if you look at the aerial photo that there are two intersecting runways. I still remember a red and white checkered water tower that used to be there back in the late 50's.

10:46 - So what's your point? Because this airfield has long existed that makes this jerk's extravagances justified? If the Justice Department and IRS ever get off their dead a** and look into his numerous violations of laws, this guy should spend the rest of his worthless life in prison. Come on you Christians, how do you excuse this type of abuse of gullible people?

10:46: there was also a red brick tower in that area that was used for air traffic control. i know, because i helped knock it down and cart it off, brick by brick.

at the time i was told that it used to be a glider base. but i don't know whether it has anything to do with copeland's runways.

It's used as a refueling station for Al Gore's private jet.

Stop whining Barry, you could have gone to divinity school instead of law school. Both churn out good apples and bad.

Dont dog them unless you know what they where doing when they made those stops....even if they did stop for eating and resting for a couple of days if the Word of God was shared with only one person while they where stopped then it is worth the $20 mill. to buy the jet!

11:09, My comments about the runways were simply to point out that they were there long before Copeland purchased the property, and had nothing to do with justifying any actions on his part that would lead one to question his operation. I, myself, question the sincerity and integrity of most of our high profile and wealthy religious leaders who are on TV asking for our money so they can live the good life.

All you questioning his work are agents of SATAN! The Lord works in mysterious ways, including producing a large amount of saps willing to give money so a guy can fly around.

Did you see the 20/20 investigation last week? They showed his house...quite the little cabin back in the woods. Something is just not right about that entire compound.

6:51 am Why can't he fly commercial? Do you know how many commercial flights $20 million would buy? And that's just the cost of the plane. Doesn't include paying for two pilots, maintenance and fuel etc. Come on, that's craziness.

When Brother Copeland sings "What a Friend We Have in Jesus", he does it with some real feeling and appreciation!

11:09 - abuse of gullible people? It isn't abuse, it is stupidity.

For every dumb leader there are thousands of dumber followers.

It never ends.

9:51 - yes, that is just too sincere. And that he has made a Christian western just endears him to me.

I just love his eyes and broad shoulders.

Ooolala!

More power to him. It's the knuckleheads who give him money that deserve to be critiqued. Wish I could go around asking people for money and have them give it to me. If I could, I would.

Damn preacher think he can get by with anything, because "Jesus loves him!" I heart his planes flying over my house at 3 am every Saturday morning!

I also remember when he shot down a police helicopter.

Anyone know God's mailing address???

I have my resume ready to go...I sure hope He's hiring...it damn sure(oops...sorry about that) looks like He pays well.

A family member is on the Copeland payroll..uses his paycheck to buy, breed, raise, and race thoroughbred horses. I can understand the accounting that says buy an asset instead of purchasing large quantity of airline tickets (for the entourage). However, the entire scenario smells like a sewer. God blesses whom he chooses regardless of the amount of money in your bank account. You cannot buy your health or wealth through a ministry. And those who say so are heritics.

Thank goodness someone has a head on their shoulders and started questioning this "COMPOUND".

1:28 Resume needed? Nah, just start being a scam artist, that's all.

I bet if the federal government started doing their job and investigated ALL large churches they would find plenty!

Here's another use of the word "SAPS"
Scam Artists in Preacher Suits

I wonder if Binny Hinn ever drops in.

What galls me about Copeland ministries is when some of his "converts" take their religious tracks, brochures, etc into mainline churches.

What's next? A visit from Mrs. Kenneth (country twang) Copeland?

WHY all of the outrage?
It makes PERFECT sense for people who BELIEVE that God sperminated a virgin, flooded the WORLD, screwed with Job just for spit and giggles, spoke through a burning bush and everything they have read in the Big Book of Myths and Fables is true, to believe that by giving trainloads of cash to some sleazebag, shilling in the name of a pedophilic rapist God that their lives would be PERFECT.

Oh right, I did FORGET to mention the SHEEPLE buying hook, line and sinker the WAY cool magic moment of Lazarus being raised from the dead stunt.

People who do NOT bother to open their eyes and QUESTION lunacy should NEVER be surprised when THEY are treated like lunatics.

Clearly, Kenneth Copeland and his ilk KNOW their target audience.

*GEEEZZZZEEE*
