Worst kind of people, and I can tell from personal experience. There is a quote from Shakespeare that says: "And thus I clothe my naked villainy with old odd ends stolen forth from holy writ, and seem a saint when most I play the devil".

Let us call them religious scandals. From people with imaginary friends no rational or decent behavior is to be expected.
Luke Freeman (15 days ago)
I've watched a plethora of videos on YouTube where people pronounce the word "cavalry" as "calvary" but this marks the first I've ever heard this hilarious verbal inversion the other way round. What amuses me most about this is that by sounding out either word letter for letter, one can produce the proper pronunciation, yet despite this fact these two words continue to be confused and mispronounced. Thanks for the laugh Simon.

The Yoido megachurch seats 12,000 people. Not 800,000. 800,000 is their total membership worldwide.
You're going to hit 2 million in no time
Bruce IDW (17 days ago)
Publicly, overtly evangelical Christian = adulterous gay pedophile, probably partakes in domestic violence too. (Nothing wrong with being gay unless your life is dedicated to telling others that there’s something wrong with being gay... hypocrisy is an abomination and hypocrites should be stoned to death)
Stephen Lovejoy (17 days ago)
Yoido Full Gospel church does not seat 800,000 church goers. Idk where you got that number, but for comparison, the largest football stadium in the US seats little over 100,000 people. Wtf?
Autumn Sunset (2 days ago)
He mixed up the church's total membership with the seating number, which is 12,000. Still a pretty substantial number, nevertheless.

Elspeth Graham (17 days ago)
I was on vacation in Orlando when Jim and Tammy Bakker moved to Orlando. There was a big billboard which said Jim and Tammy Go to Miami. I found out where they had set up their new TV ministry. It was an abandoned minimall with grass growing up in the cracks. The phrase which came to mind was "how the mighty have fallen." it was very very sad.

Oh there was Tammy Faye Bakker—by the way pronounced Baker in spite of the extra K. My friends and I would watch her just to see her heavy trampy makeup, false eyelashes, hair color but mainly to watch her cry. Rarely a TV time happened that Tammy didn’t turn on the water works especially while praying for someone and asking for money. Amazing woman.

What about Jim Jones convincing his followers to not only drink Kool-Aid laced with cyanide, but force their babies and children to drink it too. This occurred in Guyana, South America on November 18, 1978.
Mudder Fukker (22 days ago)
Shortly before Haggard’s scandal broke, he was “interviewed” by Richard Dawkins for Dawkins’ documentary on Faith. He was arrogant and condescending AF. As Dawkins’ production crew were packing up, Haggard sent a security detail over to the Dawkins group that ordered them “off of his property” immediately bc Dawkins had said ‘we are all animals’ which Haggard interpreted as calling his children ‘animals’. Some fairly pompous behavior by a guy who, by deduction, was at the time smoking meth and having ghey sects while preaching “Fahgs are bad, m’kay’, lololol.

Ted Haggard I always knew he was gay. Gay is ok but it is wrong to hide it from your wife.

This is the second time I've seen a video in which Simon mispronounces Calvary as cavalry.
Dustin Rodriguez (23 days ago)
'Deny lust and you will be molested by strange perversions.' I read that quote in a collection of similar sayings like 'Deny anger and you will be consumed by rage.' and similar things. The more inhumanly 'pure' someone claims to be, the greater the likelihood they are in reality a savagely immoral character who has harmed many.
Autumn Sunset (2 days ago)
+gritsnsand There's a difference between denial and control, my dude. To control something, you first have to acknowledge that it exists. By denying that something even exists to begin with, you are by definition unable to control it, which allows it to grow and fester unchecked, but unseen.
gritsnsand (20 days ago)
So the message is don't try to control anger, lust, a desire to steal or kill ? Don't try to improve yourself, just go with the flow? I believe that was summed up as "Do what thou wilt", the motto of Aleister Crowley. No thanks.

This proves that those who complain the loudest about the LGBTQ community and other things are usually hiding a dark secret. It’s called projection.

"Ted Haggard is completely heterosexual, (x3) Gloryhowheblewya!" What is it about religious ministries and flouting the usual religious rules about where you can put your willy?
dirty birdy22 (29 days ago)
For the #2 entry: Jessica Hann described it more as an pressured/assault not an affair. And another pastor was involved. I believe she sued him and then it was settled as well as the previous hush money paid before. Idk. It was a messy situation all together.

Why would anyone belong to a Megachurch? My sister belonged to one. It was held in an amphitheater with a giant screen and a Rolling Stone quality speaker system. The reason most people go to church is social interaction. How do you get that if the congregation is thousands?

7:34 “Cavalry” chapel. 😂 That must be the kind where towards the end, where the preacher has everyone almost ready to die of boredom, when all of a sudden a bunch of dudes on horseback barge in through the front door to rescue everyone. 🤣 For the sarcasm-impaired, he should have said “Calvary”, not “Cavalry”, Calvary being another name for Golgotha, the place where the Christian Bible says Jesus was crucified. Interestingly (I think, anyway), one thing we can perhaps infer from Simon’s slip is that he is not a Catholic, or at least, not an _Irish_ Catholic. Too many old Lenten hymns, taught by too many fierce old lady teachers, drove the word “Calvary” and how it is pronounced _(“You boy! How many times!? It’s Calvary, not Cavalry! <slap>”)_ deep into the brains of all Catholic kids in Britain and Ireland to allow them to then forget it in later life.

J.C.B of the USA. One of the scariest people in the US is Robert Jeffress. Talk about stark, staring, raving bonkers - he is actually scary. To even pretend he is sane and rational, is folly of the first water. By the way, do you mean Joseph C. Bamford of Norfolk? (UK) They invented what you guys call the 'backhoe.' They are one of the largest family companies in Britain.

Society holds these pastors to a higher level of integrity than what we follow. When we parade these fallen leaders around like they are the fool, it is really us who are the ones with the problem.

Simon Whistler's pronunciation of English is often far worse than that of foreign languages. Such a shame for an otherwise fantastic presenter. Calvary is not cavalry ffs
Roger Whittle (1 month ago)
sirfer6969. Simon Whistler IS English, or at least British. (All English are British, but not all British are English.) But he probably misread the script. Calvary is definitely a place, cavalry is not. I've noticed he often opts for the American pronounciation, probably because he's largely working for an American audience.

My father remembered meeting Billy Graham at a Freemasonic lodge in America in 1952. With Swaggert, it's Murphree, not Murphy. With Bob Coy, It's CALVARY, not cavalry.

Minor pronunciation note: "Calvary" is a place. "Cavalry" is soldiers on horses.
