You see, TV evangelists have a reputation for exploiting people financially. Now, this is not universally true, but that doesn’t matter. BECAUSE - the media has so stereotyped TV evangelists – as always having their hands out (stealing for little widow ladies), that we desperately want to disassociate ourselves from them..

I heard about a farmer who called the office of televangelist asking to see “The Head Hog at the trough.”

The receptionist said, “Sir, if you’re talking about our beloved Minster, you may call him Reverend or Pastor, but I don’t think it would be proper to refer to him as the “head Hog at the trough.’”

“Well, all right,” the farmer said. “I just sold a few sows and was going to donate ten thousand dollars to the building fund, so I was hopping to catch him.”

“Oh, just a minute, sir.” The receptionist said, “I think the big pig just walked in!”

Since some pastor, especially televangleists, are perceived to be always focusing on money, many times preachers go to the opposite extreme of not wanting to talk about money at all…”
