One of my new favorite blogs, is “Spiritual Politics” by Mark Silk, professor of religion and public life at Trinity College. Last week, he unloaded on a particular televangelist. Guess which one:

Of all the vile, fake, lying-ass, money-grubbing shyster scumbags on the face of this planet, there is perhaps none more loathsome than [NAME REDACTED], a human haircut with plastic baseball-size teeth who has made a fortune selling the appalling only-in-America idea that terrestrial greed is actually a form of Christian devotion.

Answer HERE.
[UPDATE: It wasn’t the relatively objective Prof. Silk who uttered the quote, but Rolling Stone‘s Matt Taibi. Mark sets me straight.]
