A Christian financial planner endorsed by Donald Trump’s evangelical advisor Robert Jeffress has been indicted on Ponzi scheme charges after allegedly stealing millions from senior citizens.

Religion News Network reported Thursday that W. Neil “Doc” Gallagher, age 78, allegedly stole more than $19 million from senior citizens who heard his paid radio broadcasts in Texas.

The day prior to his March 8 arrest, the Securities and Exchange Commission claimed Gallagher ran a “classic Ponzi scheme” in a complaint filed against him and two of his companies, the report noted.

In the scheme alleged by the SEC, Gallagher “continually signed up new investors and used their money to make monthly disbursements to earlier investors,” telling the senior citizens who gave him their money that those payments “were the profits generated through his surefire management of their retirement portfolios,” RNS reported.

2. Totally and completely unsurprising.

Jeez, would you just look at that creep's mug shot? Try him, convict him, and throw away the key.

3. They truly have no shame.

The Republican way. Using they're obviously fake belief in Jesus and his words to bilk every last dollar out of anybody they can.

6. Christian Financial Planner. I don't know what that even means

other than another angle to vacuum up funds from the unwary. These creeps are all the same - from this guy to the one in our White House - the only difference is in the volume of suckage.

11. Right. What would Jesus do with your money? Give it to the poor or put it somewhere safe for a

"resurrection." You know, fake a death, roll back a stone, and go off with some Mary or another for a great new life.

Of course no one believes the real Jesus would be a con man like these so-called xians.

19. It means "Watch your wallet!"

Anytime a business introduces it's self as Christian you better watch out for the scam and cheating. I remember how the Christian Schools always played dirtiest in sports in high school.
