    I wonder if Jimmy Bakker would invite Jerry Falwell to be on his new television show? i wonder if Jerry Falwell would accept his invitation?

    - Jerry Falwell called Bakker a liar, embezzler, sexual deviate, and "the greatest scab and cancer on the face of Christianity in two thousand years of church history.

    ----------------------------------------------

    On March 19, 1987, following threats of the revelation of the payoff to Jessica Hahn, whom Bakker's staff members had paid $265,000 to keep secret her sexual services to him, Bakker resigned from the PTL. Jerry Falwell called Bakker a liar, embezzler, sexual deviate, and "the greatest scab and cancer on the face of Christianity in two thousand years of church history." Falwell was rumored to be using the situation to gain control of a leading broadcast competitor. Bakker's absence resulted in a fierce fight for control of The PTL Network among several other prominent televangelists, which Falwell won. Upon taking over, Falwell fired Bakker's entire staff, and he provided much of the damning information presented at Bakker's later fraud trial. Under Falwell's leadership, the PTL Network within a short time went bankrupt and was liquidated at a deep discount.

    I think Jerry Falwells credibility as a fundamentalist went out the window when he attempted the rescue of P.T.L.

    Isn't Falwell's calling Bakker all those names something like the pot calling the kettle black??? From what I understand, Falwell isn't a little angel himself. He may have been looking in the mirror when he said some of those things.

    Isn't the title of Bakker's book "I Was Wrong"?

    Yes, but his website is saying, "I'm broke, so maybe I wasn't wrong after all."
