The Nation : PTL Leader Rules Out Bakkers' Return

October 14, 1987

The PTL ministry's third leader in seven months called for an end to fighting over the bankrupt television ministry and ruled out the return of founders Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker for at least five years. PTL interim manager William E. S. Robinson told viewers of "The PTL Show" TV program that a reorganization plan to salvage the ministry and its Heritage USA theme park would be filed within 10 days and it would place PTL in the hands of its major contributors. "There have been a lot of questions about the return of the Bakkers," Robinson said. "I cannot foresee that the Bakkers would return as long as the court has jurisdiction." Robinson's appointment followed the sudden exodus of the Rev. Jerry Falwell and other members of the PTL board of directors.
