PTL = ‘Pass the Loot’

April 9, 2013 

Jim Bakker was a thief and a liar

Jim Bakker is a liar, a thief, a convicted criminal, and a fraud. This is not my personal opinion; it is fact.

That he has the gall to show his face in public again proves to me that the man has no remorse or shame. To phrase it religiously, Bakker stole God’s money. I find such behavior heinous.

Also, your featuring him on the front page of your newspaper shows a lack of discernment on your part.

Granted, we all make mistakes and commit sins, but some sins are worse than others. Bakker had gold fixtures in his bathroom. We used to call his PTL TV show the “Pass The Loot” Club.

I realize this letter is rather incendiary, and I do not expect you to publish it.
