“I smell heaven’s bakery cooking up something good for you, sister!”

This is one within a series of videos featuring this televangelist; I’ve picked out what I think is the best of the pack. If you don’t recognize him, you’ve been blessed. His name is Robert Tilton.

    If your anti-Christian and you want to feel good about your convictions, then you simply have to watch Robert Tilton.

    He is so wierd even we evangelical Christians make fun of him.

  2. Eideard says:

    Listening to this dude, now, you know exactly where Bush got his phony accent from after leaving Yale.

  3. Mr. Fusion says:

    Besides the gas problem, what differentiates Tilden from all the other TV “Christian” preachers. Don’t they all beg for money to do God’s work?

  4. david says:

    A good laugh. I don’t know why but a fart, no matter how old or young we are, is FUNNY.

    Robert Tilton is a messenger from God. He preaches the TRUE word of The Holy Bible: It’s full of shit.

    Bless this man for he shall inherit the Kingdom of God. And, I’m not joking.

  5. Mister Mustard says:

    >>are we to believe that someone who grew up in texas is supposed to
    >>have lost all traces of his texas accent due to four years in the
    >>northeast?

    He was born in New Haven, went to prep school at Andover (MA), then 7 or 8 years of postgraduate schooling in the Northeast. A little more than four years.

    Actually, the phony accent wouldn’t bother me so much if he could somehow manage NOT TO SOUND LIKE A COMPLETE IMBECILE every time he opens his mouth. The words he says seem like they came from the mouth of an idiot, even when you read them in transcript. That yee-haw “squeal like a pig” accent just exacerbates things.

  6. Mister Mustard says:

    >>i suppose bubba bill clinton’s arkansas twang
    >>was fake, since he spent many years in the UK.

    May have been, I don’t know. Bill Clinton did not sound like the product of an incestous coupling between two cretins though. And Bill Clinton was born and raised in Arkansas, not leaving until he went to college.

    Must be those countless hours Dumbya spends “clearing brush” back on the “ranch” that keeps his accent so fresh.

  7. Wesley says:

    Well getting back to the video, it is pretty funny but it seems fake to me.

  8. Zuke says:

    Somehow, even this item about a farting preacher raised a small Bush bash comment? Crazy.

    As the old saying goes, All posts lead to Bush.

    Thanks, Eideard. :-)

    #5, Amen brother.

  11. Mr. Fusion says:

    My own opinion, but as for the accent thing…

    I think the more years of formal education, the less extreme the accent. That is not to dismiss that people will retain an accent, but the degree, or strength, is less telling with more education

    Up until WWII, the standard North American accent was Oxford English. Just watch some of the old movies from the 1930s. All higher society was expected to speak that way, especially along the Eastern Seaboard. Even today, you will still hear vestiges of that in some actors. Since WWII, California has dominated and the Mid-West has influenced most accents because of their predominance in the movie and TV media. Only within the last decade has more regional accents, including Southern, become acceptable.

    And yes, I think Bush’s accent sounds phony. More so, I find his whole delivery to be to the same level as Robert Tilden’s viewers are. I would expect this level of talk from someone common at work, not from Presidential material.

  12. GregAllen says:

    AI finally got around to seeing the video. What a juvenile tasteless cheap shot piece of trash humor.

    But funny!

    Years ago I used to watch Robert Tilton in the middle of the night when I had insomnia and he’s at the top of that genre. I generally assume it’s an act for most of those guys but with Tilton, you have to wonder if he isn’t genuinely weird.

  13. site admin says:

    Tilton was always good for a l;augh with his face twisting. I now realize that was done to hold back even more farts. The guy needed to deal with some dietary issues. I’m guessing this was a lactose intolerance thing. Short of that send the man some BEANO!

    That said I was also, like Paul, a huge fan of Gene “Am I boring you?” Scott. I gave him a sendoff last March here: http://www.dvorak.org/blog/?p=1511

    Falwell dosen’t usually do the send me your hard earned cash or you will go to hell spiel does he?

  15. Mike says:

    I saw this in the early 90s — I met the father of the guy who did it. He was a college student I think, and he made it as a class project. Robert Tilton
    was very, very big in Dallas in the 80’s.

  16. Paul says:

    That is one of the funniest videos out there. As a Christian I wished that these guys would not even call themselves preachers, but rather entertainers.

  17. Stephanie H. says:

    This is disturbing on so many levels, John. Your sense of humor is still whacked.
