Real Records You May Have Missed #13

This album may be the only existing proof that Jim Bakker got his start as a ten-year old youth in the Christian ministry. Under investigation in 1989 they found his puppet licence hidden in the attic along with several toupees and Rolex watches.
In his autobiography, I Was Wrong, Bakker claimed from the beginning that his downfall had been orchestrated by enemies inside and outside his ministry.

"I sorrowfully acknowledge that seven years ago ... I was wickedly manipulated by treacherous former friends and colleagues who victimized me with the aid of a female confederate. They conspired to betray me into a sexual encounter at a time of great stress in my marital life. ... I was set up as part of a scheme to co-opt me and obtain some advantage for themselves over me in connection with their hope for position in the ministry."
So Jim Bakker admitted to being a puppet...and he blames everyone else, but never himself.

  1. Was Frieda the true "Puppet Master" behind Falwell's takeover of the Bakker's Ponzi Scheme?

    This photo proves otherwise! She was Bakker's String Puller!
