John Oliver's Church: Our Lady of Perpetual Exemption

Post by SeeYaBye » Tue Sep 15, 2015 3:18 pm

Not sure how many here watch the John Oliver Show on HBO. After a recent episode on televangelists, he legally started his own church to show how easy it is to form a church and solicit donations with the promise of prosperity and salvation for those who send in their money -- a church founded solely as a money making scheme. Sound familiar? Well a few episodes later, he closed down his church for the reasons stated in this video, after having had thousands of dollars, and other various donations sent to him, as shown in this video clip from his show. The pleasant surprise comes at the end of the clip. I don't want to ruin the surprise, but suffice it to say that it is nice that the Church of Scientology is pretty much fair game for anyone these days!
