Religious broadcaster builds $4M home despite layoffs at his ministry

Here's to the AIG of the Christian realm:
CHARLOTTE (AP) — A religious broadcaster is building a $4 million home in a gated, lakefront community in western South Carolina at the same time that the ministry has cut jobs and reset thermostats to save money in its new headquarters.

Inspiration Networks' CEO David Cerullo is building the 9,000-square-foot home on a lot that overlooks Lake Keowee, The Charlotte Observer reported Monday.
It's good news to hear that Christian businesses have their share of scumbag executives who feel they are separate and above the suffering of ordinary citizens who are losing their jobs, homes and lives.

(Here, inset, is a picture of David Cerullo, personally negotiating a complex bond-transfer deal with Gawd Himself, in which Cerullo cleverly and expertly took the Auld Fucker to the cleaners!)

Congratulations to David Cerullo on his beautiful new home! That's just what Gawd wants his lacquered, pampered, entitlement-filled functionaries on earth to have -- the biggest cave, the most animal skins and snake stew, while others go wanting.

It's prosperity theology, isn't it? Like a vaccuous, yuppie parents who cannot take time away from their hectic, high-powered jobs to give their children actual love and guidance, and so ply the children with gadgets and trinkets and bullshit, like cell phones, video games, cars, credit cards, etc. -- so too does Yuppie Gawd pile the trinkets onto those He most loves in this grand shopping mall called Earth.

So, David Cerullo, you go and bank all of that Gawd love, sign those deeds, hire those contractors, hoard and hoard and hoard -- because it's all Gawd's tangible love for you.

What makes this grotesque story just sizzle with hypocrisy and outrage is that extra calloused layer Christians have on their minds that makes them utterly impervious to reason, utterly incapable of self-reflection, entirely blanked on understanding how they appear to others in the world at large.

So, keep serving Gawd! And by gosh, keeping on serving yourself!

You are absolute swine.

Let David Cerullo know how you feel by e-mailing him at info@insp.com, found on the Inspiration Web site.

You are missing god's love sir. You can tell who god loves the most by the number of bobbles and trinkets a person possesses. If you are without trinkets, then it only stands to reason that god does not think much of you. If, on the other hand, you are "the trinketed one" well clearly god has smiled upon you. This is where Christians get it wrong - it's not about righteousness, it's about the trinkets.

By the way, I believe god really loves Joel Olsten - more than most people. I'd bet Joel has a lot of trinkets. Proof positive of god's love and admiration. And just look at that cheezy smile - makes me want to pull out my wallet and buy that man some more trinkets.

Praise Jesus!

Ha! Gotcha there! If Gawd loves Joel Osteen so much, why is his wife such a cunt?

These fake ministers of God get rich because people don't read their bibles about tithing.

Deuteronomy 16:16
Three times a year (not every week) all your men must appear before the LORD your God at the place he will choose: at the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the Feast of Weeks and the Feast of Tabernacles. No man should appear before the LORD empty-handed:

Clearly this man understands Bono's philosophy: "The God I believe in, isn't short of cash, mister!"

God just isn't very good at spreading it out. Is that God's fault?

If Christians really followed Jesus, the world wouldn't be like it is today. Didn't Jesus say "Lay not up for yourselves treasures on earth"?
