John Oliver is raking in cash with his church, Our Lady of Perpetual Exemption. In an update to his prior piece exposing the fraudulent and nefarious practices of prosperity gospel preachers, Oliver showed how overwhelming the response to his new organization has been.
“We also received multiple checks, including this one for $65 billion dollars, which you might have sent as a joke,” said Oliver. “But guess what? We’re fucking cashing it.”
Oliver received $100 trillion Zimbabwean dollars.
“I was actually genuinely excited about this and was about to send 100 trillion blessings your way,” said Oliver. “Until I checked the exchange rate and found out this is worth about 40 cents. So now, I wouldn’t even bless you if you f*cking sneeze.”
