HBO’s John Oliver takes televangelists and prosperity preachers to task – and it is PERFECT

On Sunday night, John Stewart’s true heir apparent set his sights on the still-booming televangelist/prosperity gospel industry, digging up current footage of the uber-slimy Robert Tilton, and treating us to more mainstream hucksters like Kenneth and Gloria Copeland, Creflo Dollar, and Mike Murdoch – the latter of which may, by my reckoning, actually be the slimiest con-man of them all.

In his characteristic style (with plenty of English fooking‘s), Oliver blows the lid off the IRS exemptions that cover phony churches and ministries like these, making their grotesque properties and purchases tax-free. And, in response, John sets up his own church with ease – called Our Lady of Perpetual Exemption, of course.
