Disgraced TV preacher Jim Bakker warns those who mock him

Let he who has not been convicted of 24 counts of mail and wire fraud cast the first stone.

Disgraced televangelist and Tasty Pantry Deluxe Plus Bucket salesman Jim Bakker is getting fed up with his critics, especially those who routinely make fun of the self-proclaimed prophet who said the hurricane that recently wrecked Houston and surrounding parts of Texas was a "judgement on America."

"I'm so sick of people saying, well, that prophesy didn't come true!" said Bakker during an episode of "The Jim Bakker Show" highlighted by Right Wing Watch.

He proceeded to discuss how he "got 31 things from God," including a heads-up that 9/11 would occur, and shared that information with people on New Year's Eve 1999.

With presumably as much taste as one of his 7-pound Fiesta Buckets, which he sells along with numerous other survival-related products on his website, he then showed footage of 2 WTC exploding in fire.

Getting suddenly upset, Bakker shouted, "When God says something to you, you don't always know the exact time it's going to happen! And stop beating up the prophets! Because God says woe unto you when you beat up the prophets."

It's unclear if God told Bakker he'd be incarcerated for nearly five years following accusations of defrauding followers of $158 million.

"If you take time to read this book, you'd realize that everybody in this book talked with God!" he continued, waving a Bible around. "Even Satan and donkeys talked to God! The only ones not talking to God these days are some mean people in America. People who are just 'anti-Christ.'"

 

Finally, he turned his attention to those Bakker haters "that monitor me every day to try to destroy me."

To them, the man accused of raping his church secretary warned, "One day, you're going to shake your fist in God's face. And you're going to say, 'God, why didn't you warn me?' He's gonna say, 'You sat there and you made fun of Jim Bakker all those years. I warned you, but you didn't listen.'"
