Ashamed of Phony 'Preachers'

January 12, 2003

I'm writing as an evangelical Christian to thank you for the article "Onward Christian Soldier" (by William Lobdell, Dec. 8). I was moved by Ole Anthony's fierce dedication to truth (by exposing the high life and shameful deeds of some TV "evangelists") and humility (by living a life of sacrifice and simplicity). Whenever I happen on one of the programs where greedy, shameless "preachers" are promising people health and wealth, I feel a sense of embarrassment that words can scarcely describe. It does my heart good to know that there are people like Anthony out there. I only wish there were more of his kind.
