Kenneth Copeland Says Only God Can See His Financial Records

Last fall, Senator Charles Grassley on the Senate Finance Committee, began probing the finances of six TV evangelists whose lifestyles include mansions, Rolls-Royces, and private jets, all paid for out of church funds. Grassley told BBC, “I would not contribute to an organization that is Christian and evangelical with money being wasted that way.”

While some have cooperated, some have not, going to far as to suggest their financial records belong to "God."

Funny thing, according to the bible (Luke 20:25), Jesus disagrees.

Meet Gene Mills, head of the Louisiana Family Forum, a fundamentalist Christian activist group that is seeking "to develop a plan to promote better science education." Their plan basically involves introducing creationism and discrediting evolution and normal scientific principals.

In addition to promoting good, strong Christian values, the Louisiana Family Forum also is in the business of defending Senator David Vitter in the scandal over his use of prostitutes in both D.C. and LA. And what's the reward? David Vitter sneaks an earmark into the US Farm Bill funneling a hundred thousand dollars to the Louisiana Family Forum.

Hello? FBI? Anyone paying attention?

"Top Spammer" Indicted

[Spam]
A 27-year-old man described as one of the world's most prolific spammers was arrested Wednesday, and federal authorities said computer users across the Web could notice a decrease in the amount of junk e-mail.

Robert Alan Soloway is accused of using networks of compromised "zombie" computers to send out millions upon millions of spam e-mails.

"He's one of the top 10 spammers in the world," said Tim Cranton, a Microsoft Corp. lawyer who is senior director of the company's Worldwide Internet Safety Programs. "He's a huge problem for our customers. This is a very good day."

Despite the claim that this "top spammer" has been captured, we see no indication whatsoever that spam volume has been reduced. But it's still a good sign that the government is finally pulling their heads out of the sand and dealing with these criminals.

eBay Scammers Are Out Of Control

The legitimate eBay community is apparently up in arms about a recent infestation of scams and fraudulent activity online. Rumor has it every time the mainstream media tries to do a story on this issue, the story suddenly disappears and then you see a bunch of eBay commercials on the network *cough* CNN *cough*

A special "eBay phish kit" is now being sold on the black market. This kit is complete with all the tools a scammer needs to set up a phony eBay look-alike site to skim peoples user IDs and passwords. It even includes assorted product images for fake auctions to get the unsuspecting user to click his identity away (or whisk the user off eBay and to whatever nefarious site you want to promote).

The new technique is called "Pharming" and it is rampant and after more than four months, the folks at eBay seem incapable of stopping it.

"Godless" Washington Dollars Cause Excitement

Posted by Pile (5482 views) Add this story to MyYahoo Add this article to del.icio.us Submit article to Reddit Add story to Furl Add story to StumbleUpon [E-Mail link]

[Get-Rich-Quick]
What first seemed like a vast "left-wing conspiracy" as reported by some weirdo conservative bloggers has turned into a windfall for some opportunists in select Southeastern states. The U.S. Mint has accidentally let about 50,000 new gold Washington $1 coins get into circulation without the words, "In God We Trust". Collectors and godless heathens are snapping these things up on eBay with the $1 coins going for as much as $600.

On the down side, there appears to be a lot of these coins in circulation, and the mistake relates to the printing not being stamped on the edge of the coins. This promises to be a pretty easy thing to forge, so expect to see tons of these "godless" coins that are merely regular coins with the edge sanded down.

California Pastor Sells His Church Out From Under Flock

[Get-Rich-Quick]
For nearly a decade, members of Ripon's First Congregational Church bared their souls to Pastor Randall Radic. But clearly it didn't work both ways. There were certain things he wasn't telling them.

That became obvious a year ago, when Radic pleaded guilty to betraying his flock and secretly selling the church and its rectory out from under them. He used the money to buy himself a brand-new black BMW and a laptop -- exploits he later chronicled in a cheeky, almost gleeful blog about his double life as a sinner.
