JFK files link MLK Jr. to multiple affairs, say he possibly fathered child out of wedlock
Studs of the cloth I call them. There is no doubt that MLK did a lot of good for his people and the rest of the world, BUTTT like so many other STUDS OF THE CLOTH he had a roving eye and was sometimes was thinking with the wrong head. MLK and Elmer could have been related in another life.
Elmer Gantry is a satirical novel written by Sinclair Lewis in 1926 that presents aspects of the religious activity of America in fundamentalist and evangelistic circles and the attitudes of the 1920s public toward it. The novel’s protagonist, the Reverend Dr. Elmer Gantry, is initially attracted by booze and easy money (though he eventually renounces tobacco and alcohol) and chasing women. After various forays into evangelism, he becomes a successful Methodist minister despite his hypocrisy and serial sexual indiscretions.
Cheating or whoring around as it is called, is older then black pepper. For the average person cheating, most people turn a blind eye to it. BUTTT when it is a STUD OF THE CLOTH that that crosses the line, it is a different animal.
There are 1,000’s of reverend studs out there that use THE CLOTH as a disguise and for their illicit intentions; hiding behind religion. Many of them taking advantage of a women who came to them in the time of need, only to having her drop drawers 30 minutes later as part of THE CURE. Worst of all, the preachers do their dastardly deeds in the name of GOD.
One phrase that has become the doctrine for some of the preachers; do what I say, not what I do!!
Cheating on their spouse is just the tip of the ice pick for some of the golden tongued rascals. A very large percentage of them live high on the hog and a hell of a lot better than their parishioners.
There has been great controversy over the recent boom of megachurch pastors and the wealth they have been able to accumulate with the rise of their church. Many of them preach a message of prosperity that tells listeners that God wants them to be rich and it looks like they all practice what they preach. They make six figure salaries and live in million dollar mansions. Here is a list of ten pastors that live celebrity lifestyles.

9. Kenneth Copeland
Prosperity preacher, Kenneth Copeland has been preaching the gospel for over 40 years and he has the lifestyle to prove it. Copeland resides in a $6 million, 18,000 square foot home on the outskirts of Ft. Worth, Texas. The home comes equipped with water views and a boat house. Copeland or the church as he claims, also owns a $20 million Cessna Citation jet, which is known to be one of the fastest private jets. The Cessna Citation is just one of the many planes that are “owned by the church.” Copeland’s collection of planes sits at the Kenneth Copeland Airport that is located right next to his church.
8. Benny Hinn
ONE OF THE BEST IN THE BUSINESS
Popular televangelist, Benny Hinn has been making the rounds at his “miracle crusades” since the late eighties. Hinn has published several books and is used to being in the headlines, not only for his fabrications of the truth, but for his extravagant lifestyle. In 2009, Hinn told ABC News that his ministry collected $100 million a year and that his salary was a little over $500,000. It has also been reported that Hinn’s ministry pays $112,000 per month for the lease of a Gulfstream III jet. Hinn has made sure to share the wealth with his close family members by including his wife, daughter and son-in-law on the payroll, each making $166,000, $65,000 and $90,000 per year.

I do not have a problem with anyone making a big buck, BUTTT when they do it with ulterior motives, deceitfully in the name of GOD, they are worse sinner than their congregation.
The irony of the tale, most of the preaches are not ashamed to flaunt their wealth by their life-styles, unexplained, their very foolish flock keep dropping the BIG dollars in the collection basket.
Someone tell me WHY so many people are drawn to these hustling people of the cloth and shell out millions to them. What are they getting in return?
Gotta give the DEVIL their due; so lets give all of the high-rolling prognosticators a big Amen for their cunning and crafty ways, even though some of it is sinful.
Turn up your volume – you may come away a different person!!
Dr. MLK is no different than a lot of the bible thumpers out there, except for the fact that I think the man was a true believer. He did want to see harmony among the races. He, like so many other human beings had an illness called; weakness of the flesh and he got plenty of it on the side. Not to be excused, just a reason.
