Jim Bakker: I Can’t Preach The Gospel On My Show Because Those Who Hate God Want To Kill Me [VIDEO]

Kyle Mantyla reports at Right Wing Watch:

End Times prepper pastor Jim Bakker said on his television program today that there is so much hatred of Christianity in America that he cannot even preach the Gospel on his show because he could be killed for doing so.

The people who hate God, Bakker said, “have beat back all opposition, they have changed America” but have so far been unable to destroy the word of God.

“The warfare is against the God of heaven,” he said. “The God of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob.The God whose son is Jesus Christ. I’m serious. You have no idea. I can’t even talk about it because they will kill me. And I don’t care what you say, I know what I’m talking about. They’ve already threatened my life because they disagree with the Bible.”

  • Judas Peckerwood

    Wow, so your supposedly omnipotent god is actually powerless and pathetic.

  • Rick

    You, you, you. It’s all about you, Jim.

  • coram nobis

    He can’t even preach the gospel on his show, even though he has a show, can preach his version of his gospel, and can yap, yap, yap continuously.

    Nutsy cuckoo.

  • netxtown

    Well, yes. What’s your point?

  • Gregory Phillips

    If anybody wants to kill him – it’s not for the bible – it’s for scamming them out of money – Christian Scamgelicals are quite wealthy.

  • pch1013

    No, dear, we don’t hate God – we just hate *you*. There’s a difference, actually,

    • Karl Dubhe 2

      I hate God just as much as I hate rainbow-pooping unicorns.

      • Dreaming Vertebrate

        But rainbow-pooping unicorns don’t exist!

        • Karl Dubhe 2

          Oh noes! 🙂

          • Dreaming Vertebrate

            Same for all gawds.

          • Karl Dubhe 2

            Which is why, as you know, I chose the rainbow pooping unicorns.

            Actual unicorns do exist, they’re also known as Rhino’s. (which, of course, you also know.) 🙂

  • another_steve

    I want all right-wing monsters to go away, except Jared.

    I have plans for Jared.

    • Mark Née Fuzz

      Missionary plans or doggie style?

    • Snarkaholic

      Changed your mind again, eh?
      Happy hunting.

  • 2patricius2

    He has never preached the Gospel on his show.

    • David Walker

      Nor would it surprise me to hear that he hasn’t sold tons of Bakker’s Bilge.

  • Dreaming Vertebrate

    Another butthurt poster child for white Christian “grievance”.
    > We are so persecuted! Why do our victims struggle so much?!

  • edrex

    can’t preach the gospel if you don’t know the gospel. and it’s god who wants you dead, btw.

  • Snarkaholic

    So…you think those people are more powerful than God’s ability to protect you? Some Christian you are!

  • Mr. M

    When you point out a Conservative is wrong: “And I don’t care what you say, I know what I’m talking about.”

  • Rex

    Thank God you were released from prison and leave the rest of us alone.

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    And you wonder why you aren’t popular ?

  • Mark Née Fuzz

    Oh don’t be silly, Jimmy. Everybody thinks you’re a poofy old fool, but nobody gives a shit otherwise. Nobody cares enough to want you dead.

    • Dreaming Vertebrate

      Well, to be perfectly honest, …

  • Christopher

    Um, nobody really cares about you enough to want to kill you.

    But it’s cute that you think otherwise.

    • David Walker

      He takes paranoid lessons from the fucking moron.

  • TexasBoy

    Interesting…when was scamming people with fake timeshares, going to prison for it, then hocking slop buckets ever considered “Preaching the Gospel”….well…OK, the Prosperity Gospel for your own Prosperity…maybe.

  • dbishop75

    poor loonie Jim. just stick to your slop buckets to swindle money from the gullible. leave teaching to those who know how to do so.

  • Rex

    “I can’t even talk about it because they’ll kill me” – yet, there you are, talking about it.

    • And talking and talking and talking

    • Droz

      He’d be the WORST member of Fight Club.

    • Todd20036

      So he’ll send a police report ANY DAY NOW.

    • Adam Schmidt

      Oh yes… the gays (TM) have been invading churches across the U.S. and dragging preachers out into the street. Happens all the time.

      Or he could just be full of shit while he preaches hate and fear.

    • RoFaWh

      I wonder: if the rapture occurs and Bakkerslop becomes the only food available, where will the fresh water to hydrate the slop come from?

  • Natty Enquirer

    Bakker did not say he could not preach the gospel. He said he could not talk about “it,” which, in context, means the supposed plots against his life. (Because they don’t exist, of course.)

  • MagnaLupus

    Isn’t there something in his buy-ble (ha!) about evangelizing in the face of danger because jeebus-reasons?

  • DaveMiller135

    Jim, Jim, Jim. I imagine it isn’t only haters of Christ who want to kill you. I bet people who encounter you standing in line, or walking down the street, or anything anywhere; I bet they all want to kill you too.

  • Sam_Handwich

    does he tape his show at The Villages in FL?

    • TexasBoy

      One thing for sure, he isn’t using “The Barn” at Heritage USA.

    • Christopher

      I think he’s in Branson, Misery.

      • That_Looks_Delicious

        I had a co-worker who used to groan about having to drive his grandmother to Branson every year. It was her favorite place in the world. Her Disneyland, of sorts.

        • Christopher

          From what I’ve been told there are three “God’s Waiting Rooms” in the US, Florida, Arizona, and Branson.

          • clay

            (rural Kansas and rural Pennsylvania don’t get mentioned, because even the old-olds don’t want to admit they’re still there)

          • ChrisInKansas

            I think most of the oldsters in rural KS have now actually died off. It’s now mostly hispanics and methheads.

          • clay

            Smith County had more nursing homes than schools, and a greater percentage of the population over 65 than any county in Florida, but that was 20 years ago.

          • lymis

            I think someone is confusing “God’s waiting room” with “Darwin’s waiting room.”

    I don’t hate God and I wouldn’t mind seeing Bakker chocking to death on his own vomit after eating his swill.

    This Holiday Season I’d like to remind you of the millions of rural Pagan bodies that had to pile-up over the centuries in order for Christianity to flourish.

    I actually visited Heritage, USA in North Carolina, (the Bakker scam theme park) back during their scandalous heyday. (Don’t ask why). Jerry Falwell Sr. was there trying to take control of the situation, but the thousands of idiots who had bought into the scam were acting like nothing was amiss. There were home-sites for sale, time-share apartments, and campgrounds to accommodate them, and you couldn’t walk 50 feet from a waterpark or prayer chapel without encountering a gift shop where they could extract more $$ from these poor suckers. The main hotel had a shopping mall in the lobby. I went into the Tammy Faye makeup shop to buy 10 tubes of branded eyeliner as gifts, and right next door was the “Estate Planning” office where you could go and give up your life savings to these criminal grifters. I will never forget that day.

  • Robert Adams

    “there is so much hatred of Christianity in America that he cannot even preach the Gospel on his show because he could be killed for doing so.”

    So is Bakker saying it doesn’t do much good to have God on your side?

    • MBear

      Almost like god isnt there

      • RJ Bone

        Imagine that!

  • RoFaWh

    Hatred of Bakker’s “religion” is strictly due to the actions of believers.

    Actions have consequences.

    • Gianni

      That’s the only reason for my animosity toward the evanges and fundies. Their constant proclamations of how faithful they are by doing God’s will to rid the world of everyone they don’t like. People who worship as they wish and keep it a personal part of their lives are no hindrance to me and I mind my own business with them.

  • dagobarbz, fine Italian shoes

    Bakker, if I was gonna kill you, it wouldn’t be because of “teh gospel.” It’d be because you are an unrepentant grifter who is still scamming vulnerable people with your fearmongering hype.

    BTW, I have first-hand information that you are NOT going to Heaven. Hell has a plan for your eternity, and you really, really won’t like it.

    They don’t want to kill you, Jim. They just want you to go away. Nobody gives a damn what you blather on about.

  • HomerTh

    So why is he afraid to die? The sooner he’s dead, the sooner he gets to meet Jeebus, right? Or maybe he knows it is all bullshit.

    • RJ Bone

      Maybe? He does. I’m fairly confident that they all do, which is why they all do everything they can to get so rich. They know that this is all they will have and that they can act however they want because they know there will be no punishment or reward.

      It’s why I have such a problem with the misuse of “ignorant” by others. They KNOW BETTER and are doing this anyway.

  • Lee Grupsmith-Pedersen

    Maybe if you stuck to the actual text they might stop trying to “kill” you.

    Isn’t he supposed to want to die while preaching the gospel, like a good christian martyr? Isn’t that an express ticket to the pearly gates?

    He is not able to preach the gospel – but can sell buckets of freeze dried food at inflated prices because he has scared his followers into buying them. Is that right? No one would kill him for that – what the heck is he even talking about? What a hack. I would love for him to provide proof someone has threatened him.

    Hey Jimmie – It might actually be all those people you scammed $MILLION$ out of back in the 80’s. Remember them?

  • Gianni

    Jimmy, you do believe that everything happens according to God’s plan, don’t you? Perhaps God’s message here is to, “Shut the fuck up already because you don’t really preach the gospel, you sell buckets of stuff to fools.”

  • Kissmagrits

    Ya got it all wrong again, Jimmy.

  • Mark

    You’re not worth it asshole.

  • Wynter Marie Starr

    Oh, FFS, no one wants to kill your scrawny, scamming, lying ass. We just want you to stop scamming the stupid and ignorant and making money from people who don’t know any better. If you look at things that way (as you should) that makes those of us who can’t stand you better christians…

    If there are any good reasons to kill him, that isn’t it. Grifting and deceiving con men like Bakker should be run out of town on a rail, after tarring and feathering him.
