Johnny Robertson is paying good money for this...?

Very strange night of cult leader Johnny Robertson's usual broadcast on WGSR this evening. The first hour was a recording of this morning's "service" at Martinsville Church of Christ. And that in itself was notable because to the best of my knowledge, this is the first time that I've ever seen Johnny Robertson praying. Except that his "prayer" was straight out of Luke chapter 18, in that it was practically the same as that of the Pharisee in the temple who prays "God, I thank you that I am not like other men—robbers, evildoers, adulterers..." etc. Yes folks, that apparently is the substance of "prayer" among the cult (which again, is not the real Churches of Christ at all).

Then Robertson went on a vicious rant, boasting about how his "church is the most authoritarian!" among other things, and then devoted much of the rest of the "sermon" to evolution and Charles Darwin, mostly in order to attack that same museum in Danville that he has some kind of beef with.

And then the recorded service ended and the program went to this...

That's it. For the next half-hour, it was a DVD menu that went out on live television. People who happened to tune in to WGSR between 9:30 and 10 got to see waves rolling on a beach as earthy "New Age" music played in the background of the DVD main menu, and nothing else.

So unless I'm mistaken, Johnny Robertson paid between $500 and $1000 to broadcast a DVD menu on television tonight.

Parse this as you will.

Money well spent, Texas donors. Money well spent.

The real story here is that JR spent a grand broadcasting New Age music. Played with New Age instruments.

Johnny Robertson said everyone feared him. But who's afraid of a man who can't run a DVD player?

His doofus son was too busy running Religious Review multimedia company to help Johnny push the buttons on the remote.
