Christians on TV

Think about a Christian you have seen on TV. Ostensibly, they were trying to sell you some crackpot idea, e.g. that you could pray away your cancer, or that you could use a green handkerchief to triple your income, or that a book that was wrong on every point of science or archaeology was perfectly reliable. But always, appeared at the bottom of the screen, an appeal for money for God. You have seen their mansions, so you know where that money really goes. However, when a scientist comes on TV and starts telling you mind-blowing things about the universe, there is never such an appeal for money. Christianity is really about conning people out of money. The whacko ideas are just the bait. Science is about sharing discoveries.
