Celebrating Ignorance with Joel Osteen

I’m sorry but this guy is dangerous and spreading nonsense to millions of people. Why people send this man more and more money truly baffles me. It’s a celebration of ignorance and an assurance that feeling and intuition trumps information and data. It’s gross.

Maybe it’s time to convert to the prosperity gospel and spout off nonsense that makes people feel good and rake in piles of cash.

As much as I love to hate on the guy, I’ve got to give it to him. He’s a phenomenal salesman.

It reminds me of a great moment and line from the amazing flick “There Will Be Blood.” After Daniel Plainview, an oil man and capitalist, watches a preacher named Eli do a faith healing and cast out demons, Daniel sees through the performance and looks at Eli and says sincerely, “That was one Goddamn hell of a show.”
