Louisiana Televangelist Says God Told Him He Needs $54 Million Private Jet Then Asks His Followers for Donations

SMH! These false prophets ministers wonder why religion is deemed one of the world’s oldest shakedowns outside of prostitution.

I am all for prosperity but it is extremely hard to wrap my head around the church’s “need” for a $54 MILLION jet. Unless Duplantis is jetsetting around the world nonstop saving God’s people, I can’t see how this is justified other than pure G-R-E-E-D.

What a con.

WWJD?


Via KTLA – Jesse Duplantis Ministries has three private jets, but Duplantis says he needs one more. As the televangelist who preaches the controversial “prosperity gospel” explained to his followers in a video last week, if Jesus Christ walked the earth today, “he wouldn’t be riding a donkey.’

There’s just one thing: To buy that $54 million private jet (Duplantis has his eye on a Dassault Falcon 7x), the Louisiana preacher needs his followers to donate money to the cause. As for those aforementioned three jets, the most recent of which was purchased in 2006, the ministry has been “just burning them up for the Lord Jesus Christ,” Duplantis said in the video, according to NOLA.com.

The Falcon 7x, with a range of 5,950 nautical miles, is needed “so we can go anywhere in the world in one stop,” he explained. None of his other jets can do that.

Duplantis told his followers that God told him, “I want you to believe in me for a Falcon 7X.” He said viewers should “pray about becoming a partner to it.”

He addressed the possible controversial nature of his request, according to KTLA sister station WGNO in New Orleans: “Now some people believe that preachers shouldn’t have jets. I really believe that preachers ought to go on every available voice, every available outlet, to get this gospel preached to the world.”

He has defended his use of private planes in the past in what the Washington Post called a “widely mocked” video in which he and another preacher said, among other things, that you can’t speak openly to God on a commercial airliner.

Forget a resignation letter, this KC man decided he would put his talents on display and serenade his former boss and coworkers with a departure song from his gig at Popeye’s.

The song was remixed to the Big Pun classic instrumental of “Don’t Wanna Be a Player” and is absolutely hysterical.

Donald Trump Administration Planning To Require Food Stamp Receipients To Drug Test

According to CBS News — The Trump administration is considering a plan that would allow states to require black certain food stamp recipients to undergo drug testing.


The proposal under review would be narrowly targeted, applying mostly to people who are able-bodied, without dependents and applying for some specialized jobs, according to an administration official briefed on the plan. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss internal deliberations, said roughly 5 percent of participants in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program could be affected.

The drug-testing proposal is another step in the Trump administration’s push to allow states more flexibility in how they implement federal programs that serve the poor, unemployed or uninsured. It also wants to allow states to tighten work requirements for food stamp recipients and has found support among GOP governors who argue that greater state control saves money and reduces dependency.

Internal emails obtained by The Associated Press indicated that Agriculture Department officials in February were awaiting word from the White House about the timing of a possible drug-testing announcement.

I think we just have to be ready because my guess is we may get an hour’s notice instead of a day’s notice,” wrote Jessica Shahin, associate administrator of SNAP.

Conservative policymakers have pushed for years to tie food assistance programs to drug testing.

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, a Republican, sued the USDA in 2015 for blocking the state from drug testing adults applying for food stamps.

A federal judge tossed the suit in 2016, but Walker renewed his request for permission later that year, after Donald Trump had won the presidency but before he took office.

We turned that down,” said former USDA Food and Nutrition Service Undersecretary Kevin Concannon, who served in the position under the Obama administration from 2009 until January of last year. “It’s costly and cumbersome.”

The proposal isn’t expected to be included in a GOP-written farm bill that could be released as soon as early this week, a GOP aide said.

Do you think it is fair to require food stamp recipients to drug test in order to meet eligibility?
