U.S. tax law allows television preachers to get away with almost anything. We know this from personal experience.

Our Lady of Perpetual Exemption will not be able to accept donations from Church supporters from the states of Mississippi, Nevada, Pennsylvania, or South Carolina.  We apologize for any inconvenience.

Don't let the evil that another do make you lose faith in GOD.

Seed Faith and Supply Economics are pretty much the same thing.
Usernames are Hard
This will always be one of my favorite episodes
Joy Petinrin
They sound worse than black rappers. That is really weird!!!!
Walt Woolrich-Hamer
I know this is a joke but I still feel uneasy anyway...
The Sunflower Seed Enthusiast
man, there's big money in this seed faith....hmmmm maybe i could sneak in the market.
Joseph Nash
these televangelist are evil criminals.
Joseph Nash
religious people that run churches should have to pay taxes. the only way these fuckers make money is by the donations.
chris logan
Wasn't the name of the mom from Requiem for a Dream named Bonnie?
No chin

y'know what would be better than this ?
a tech-cult version of this that would at the very least funnel the money at medical research for defeating diseases ,drastically extend the human lifespan and synthetic organs/cybernetic prosthesis equal or even suerior to natural appendages
James Harrison
didnt someone say it was easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle then it was for a rich man to get into heaven?


more people who need to hang

You Could Make a Religion out of This.
Jeffrey Ferreira
As a Christian, I'm glad that Oliver acknowledges that many churches do good.

Screw televangelists. In general, particularly the ones Oliver points out, they are horrible representations of what Christianity is about. AND, I don't know what kind of horrid human being emotionally ropes someone into giving away what little they have left for selfish gain.
Jason Smith
similar to indulgences
Mr Smiley
All these "preachers" saying that God wants you to be rich but dosent the bible say. "Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God." Yes i belive it does
Ultimum Draco
religions like christianity make people stupid
Viviana Di Chiara
"the size of your seed" is the size of your peanut brains if you give money to those bastards
EveryDreDay
I called the number... Twice... It was a different recording both times. One said I won a free cruise, the other said i won a free gift card, im sure if i stayed on the line they would have asked for my credit card number... Thanks for trying to rip me off John Oliver...
EveryDreDay
HOLY SHIT! 3:23 They look like theyre wearing someone elses faces on their faces... Right?!
Ollie Yang
Aside from a plutocracy, America is also partly a theocracy.
otto eduard Leopold von Bismarck Duke of launberg
Bonnie parker I thought she got bullet cancer
Virtual Media
Tax the Churches

I can't properly express how incredibly angry this video makes me! I'm constantly torn between the urge to laugh or look up the next televangelists-adress and burning his house down... In my eyes this is worse than theft or robbery, because people DIE because of such bastards.
Torben Franke
something that can only work in a country of stupid people... god bless germany and the fact stupid shit like this doesn't make it here -.-
Spooky
Oh my god, 4 people actually sent them jizz in mail?

Could you set up a Dummy church give all your income take the money back tax free? If you know please reply thanks!
Mal Lock
I actually have lupus and, believe me, I would throat punch any televangelist who says this. Most people with chronic debilitating illnesses live in poverty because they can no longer work or afford the medical help they need and become desperate to be well. Preying on the desperate is unconscionable.
steven01804
Best episode ever
Quentin Styger
With all those vague laws, Scientology is no longer a church, which is kind of like being the first president to be successfully impeached.
Quentin Styger
An evangelist's success should be based on people who's lives have been positively altered by being introduced to Jesus. These money lovers should all be burned alive (spoilers, it happens in the future, twice for some of these jerks). In other news, Donald J. Trump may sue these guys claiming they stole his ideas.

And we all know that the anti-fat pill only works when you eat all the Krispy Kreme.
Meg Alyssa
I hate that these disgusting people prey on the poor, sick, and the desperate for their own gain. And in the name of god. So gross.

Hello, my name is Church and I don't pay taxes.
Knorbie. exe
"planting" a seed? yes, that might actually work.

But giving your seed to a rich dude that likes to eat the seed from the poor? nope.
Yeshei Oragalleig
Ah, the Televangelists never fail to turn my stomach. Finally they serve a use for comedy!
raheim cumberbatch
Lol religion, that man in the sky sure is good
Insanis Stultitia
No wonder Christian evangelist and politicians can relate to each other and fully support each other. They make promises for something they know they will never have to actually deliver. Fuck them both.
waterkidje
how stupid do you need to be
Abdiel Barraza
Bible warned us about these preachers
