Preacher gets a little on the side, gets caught, then hollers "I have sinned!"
23 June 2002 | by (Broken Bow, Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

"Judge not lest ye be judged". True, but this little twerp Bakker is guilty as sin. He thinks it is fine to cheat on his spouse but when he is caught it's "hey, it was just this one time and, hey, I'm real sorry Jesus". This whining, blubbering clown could have been a success had he stayed true to his calling instead of selling out to the Gods of power, sex, money, drugs and vanity. How could anybody be gullible enough to fall for the spiel of these 2 God hollering bozos? There was enough plastic in them to produce enough 4" schedule 40 pvc to totally re-pipe the state of Texas. These 2 losers deserved each other and the fate they suffered. Good flicker with the 2 leads being played to perfection; almost had me believing they were the genuine article. I'll never trust another televangelist....hell, I didn't anyway.
