    US preacher asks followers to help buy fourth private jet

    A US televangelist has asked his followers to help fund his fourth private jet - because Jesus "wouldn't be riding a donkey".

    Jesse Duplantis said God had told him to buy a Falcoln 7X for $54m (41m).

    He added he was hesitant about the purchase at first, but said God had told him: "I didn't ask you to pay for it. I asked you to believe for it."

    Although preachers owning private jets is not unusual, this particular appeal has caused controversy.

    Twitter users responded to the request with disbelief, with many quoting Bible verses warning against greed and "false prophets", or suggesting that the money could be better used to help the poor.

    In a video address posted on his website, 68-year-old Mr Duplantis explained: "You know, I've owned three different jets in my life, and I've used them and just burning them up for the Lord Jesus Christ.

    "Now, some people believe that preachers shouldn't have jets. I really believe that preachers ought to go on every available voice, every available outlet, to get this Gospel preached to the world."

    sick of this behavior by those who are supposed to be pillars of their communities when in essence all they're doing is pillaging their communities to fund their materialistic/deceitful lives. it's time for the government to audit these fucks. fuck the separation act when it comes to money donations for these crooks. same shit in congress.

    Yet you're the first guy in line to give up all your earnings to the good priest.

    Billy Graham sorta got that ball rolling, but Falwell and his silent majority really got the shitball rolling, compounded with Roe and the so-called Christians being pro-birth.
