Ever since Dad got back in the family televangelism business, all hell has broken loose.

  1. Robert Schuller divorced his son from the famed “Hour of Power” broadcast
  2. Next, we discover Dad would rather play musical pulpiteering chairs rather than have his son preach one more lukewarm sermon
  3. Then, we discover Junior Schuller would rather fly the coop than watch this mess
Yeah, that's an average Sunday service these days

Yeah, that's an average Sunday service these days

And so, it seems the economy… wait, scratch that… the tithe-paying parishoners of the Crystal Cathedral have had enough of this hullabaloo and decided to let their money do the talking. Or actually, not according to the Orange County Register.

The megachurch has put a price tag of $34 million for the [ministry HQ] building at 13280 Chapman Ave., which is zoned for office, medical and educational uses, Cathedral spokesman John Charles said today. The ministry wants to sell the office building and lease it back for three years after the sale is completed, he said.

Yeah, of course the talking head is going to spout blather like an oil derrick to fight the rumor mill about the ministry not going bankrupt, but what else could it be?

Robert Schuller built this pioneering ministry – and the first-ever megachurch – from the ground up. He then retires to Cabo or wherever crustasean televangelists go for their twilight years and gives Junior Schuller the keys to the kingdom. Unexpectedly, Dad swipes those keys back and now this?! Yeah, it’s Churchin the street sense.

“Yes, we have had trouble like all other churches and organizations raising money over the last several months,” he said. “We’re all dealing with the economic downturn.”

True, but we aren’t all dealing with a family affair from the Twilight Zone. Shameful this is happening. That ministry has cast its crowns in heaven in bulk. You may not have appreciated the pablum, but the preacher was certainly used of God.

The Schullers could used some prayer if you have the time.

    Dad used the church to make a lot of money for himself and live a kings life for many years. The son does not have the magic so it is time to pay the piper. Looks good on them, a bunch of phonies with a lot of nice talk. All the people that sent money to them were just a bunch of suckers to a legalized public fraud. Let them bankrupt and liquidate. If the property is really worth 34 Million that should pay back about half of their 65 Million in debts. The greedy bankers were suckers too. Looks good, all of them should get what they have comming to them, just another bunch of crooks.
