Rod Parsley: firebrand and gonif

http://www.jewishjournal.com/blog/item/rod_parsley_firebrand_and_gonif/

I strongly disagree with Rod Parsley‘s characterization of Islam (based on “revelations from demon spirits” and “an anti-Christ religion that intends, through violence, to conquer the world”), but as someone who believes there is Truth and not just religion, he has the right to be divisive. But to what end?

More troubling to a God-fearing Christian—me—is that Parsley appears to be a purveyor of the Prosperity Gospel, that vile distortion of the Bible infamous for conning little old ladies out of their social security checks. (Though it may be true in a different context that giving makes you rich.) From the Huffington Post:
