Jersey Couple Ordered to Hand Over Homeless Man’s GoFundMe Money

FOX 5 SAN DIEGO – After Johnny Bobbitt Jr., a homeless man with just $20 in his pocket, gave stranded motorist Kate McClure the money for gas last October, the woman and her boyfriend raised $400,000 to help him out.

But the feel-good viral story recently devolved into a feud over how much money Bobbitt had yet to see.

The case went to a New Jersey court on Thursday, where a judge ruled the couple needs to provide a full accounting of where the money has gone and said until then the remaining money needs to be turned over to Bobbitt’s legal team and kept in a trust.

According to CNN affiliates WPVI and KYW, McClure and Mark D’Amico had the money they raised on GoFundMe in their personal accounts, Bobbitt’s lawyer said. Continue reading →

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.
