Becoming a national joke synonymous with amoral swindlers in the 80s wasn't enough to stop televangelism. It's still going strong, but at least now we have Our Lady of Perpetual Exemption.

In this video, John Oliver spends the first 15 minutes doing a wonderful exposé and takedown of televangelist churches and pastors, showing how they prey on the sick and lonely to send them money that could be going towards health care in the vain promise of receiving miracle cures and financial windfalls. This, of course, turns out to be a financial windfall for the preachers, who are miraculously cured of their lack of private jets.
