15. The fleecing of the gullible.
"The saga is being watched both locally and nationally by those who say Johnston is a preacher of prodigious gifts but also filled with very human flaws. He himself told his congregation that church leaders are paying attention to the dissolution of First Family because so many churches are going through tough economic times."

Poor criminals, hope they all end up eating out of a dumpster. His kids left to find other suckers to steal start their own church!

Poor fella was living in a 900k house! Not even a One Mil McMansion...bless his humble butt!
