  1. That's hilarious!  I'd love to have been there when that preacher came up with the idea of the "Blood of Jesus" idea.  

    "Hey guys, we can sell vegetable oil with red food coloring and say it's Jesus' blood!"  Staff stares at him.  "What?  Unless any of you want to donate any?  I think I still have some of my old needles somewhere around here."

  2. This is awesome, but I think it wold have been a better point to have just stopped after getting the guy to admit it was just vegetable oil and turned his hand at that point and said, "well then, thank you for falling into my trap to get you to finally tell the truth that your product was a fraud.  I knew making you afraid you'd be liable for a medical suit would get you to tell the truth.  Thank you.  Goodbye.".

    But then again, this caller's goal was probably maximizing humor whereas mine is maximizing the exposure of liars.  To maximize humor it was probably better to play it out to the end like he did and never tip my hand.

  3. You need a description on this video that explains the evangelist that is portrayed here.  Because when the people that actually follow this scum bag do an Internet search on him, this video needs to show up.  Otherwise, what's the point of exposing these modern day snake-oil salesmen?  We need to educate people about the ridiculousness of this.  Properly identifying the evangelist is one small way to help.

  5. In all fairness, the relevant web page does say that "<span>This is regular olive oil which represents the Holy Spirit and a special coloring to make it look red thus we call it "The Blood of Jesus Anointing Oil." There is no virtue or healing in this oil, it is a point-of-contact and an act-of-faith."</span>

    According to the Wayback Machine, it has said that as far back as Feb. 13, 2008.
