    Damn you for putting Crowder and Robertson in the same bracket. That’s like putting the ’77 Montreal Canadiens against the ’72 Miami Dolphins. TITANIC

    Do you go with the guy who coined the word “jehovajuana”? Or do you go with the guy who pretty much said God himself steered the planes into the twin towers?

    Robertson, for the incomprehensible and staggering amount of cultural damage he’s done for those people who dare call themselves Christian.

    I was going to go with Crowder – but Jake makes a great point. At least Crowder is delegated to his cult church, and some GodTube videos…and quite possibly a cover shoot and centerfold spread in the Charisma magazine. Pat gets national press coverage, and never fails to make all of us look bad.

    -Copeland (He almost won points for working with Willie George, and his attempt to look cool at a biker rally)
    -Bynum (elaborate 1.2 million dollar wedding on TBN, then divorced a few years later is pretty powerful)
    -The Creflo
    -Van Impe (He gets points for being wrong so often, and still keeping his core audience)

    As crazy as I think Pat Robertson is, I don’t think he’ll make it to the semifinals. Is he really a preacher?

    Man, those are some tough pairings.

    Robertson (though it was close. Does anyone else just want to slap Crowder? Or is it just me?)
    Dollar (though, it’s good to know that peeing standing up is a biblical principle)
    Impe (what’s not to love? — the hair, the wife, an announcer named “Ohman”, the contradicting prophecies… he’s a national treasure)

    I know that no one knows who I am, but….

    This last spring break I and a group of friends were in Tempe, AZ, so we made it our mission to attend a service at Stephen Anderson’s church.

    Best. decision. ever.

    Crowder – let’s just say that if there’s another inquisition I’m submitting his videos.
    Osteen – how is it possible to say so little so often in twenty minutes
    Hagee – He needs to read the New Testament every once in awhile! Somebody please introduce him to N.T. Wright.
    Tilton – he doesn’t even pretend any more
    Van Impe – how do you stretch one bad sermon into a lifetime of TV?
    And the most difficult pairing… I don’t think that it was very fair to put two raving lunatics in the same pair, but THE WINNER IS: The Todd-meister for his generous use of angels, especially Emma!

    Crowder, that guy needs therapy
    Osteen, can you say used car salesman?
    Bynum because at least Jones doesn’t scream at you (actually he might break into a bad white folk rap though – I’ve heard it first hand!)
    Anderson because I’m afraid folks might take him seriously.
    Hagee, I once co-led worship with Pat Cocking (she changed her name) – I was a young Pentecostal youth pastor and the experience was traumatic enough (she is tone deaf) that I remember nothing of her sermon.
    Tilton, cause when I first became a Christian I thought that I should put on a preacher to evangelize my family and this #*$nut started screaming in “tongues” at the tv camera.
    Jack Van Impe all the way baby!
    Bentley, I’m not even going to listen to White.

    By the way, my lovely bride’s comment on watching a Crowder sermon, aside from the obvious:

    Do his pants have to be see-my-religion-tight? What’s that about?

    Van Impe and Tilton are the top two here. Hands down the most awful, suck ever. Although Van Impe technically does a “news” program.

    But Scott… Where’s Peter Popoff here? You missed a gem bro. Here’s a linky to the legend that is Peter Popoff. He peddles miracle spring water from Russia and was found guilty of fraud since he uses a wire where his wife tells him to call out certain “sick” people. He went bankrupt and then started business back up again.

    You forgot Rod Parsley!

    [Agathos: You’re right; maybe we can have him in for WPEC II: This Time It’s Historical (That’s called foreshadowing)]
