For many decades we heard in the Church of God why Herbert Armstrong needed his fancy jets in order to fly around the world. Millions of dollars in tithe money were used to buy these jets and fly entourages around the world while staying in first class hotels, all at tithe payers expense, and for what? Thankfully Joseph Tkach Sr. out a stop to that silliness.
Today, countess other religious hucksters brag about their own jets and tell their followers to send in money to help them finance new jets. This recently has caused a backlash and criticism that has stung some these hucksters. They are now on the defensive and you won't beleive their excuses.
