About two years ago, Inside Edition aired a segment in which reporter Lisa Guerrero looked into televangelists and their greed. It followed years of people like Jesse Duplantis and Kenneth Copeland bragging about their decisions to buy private jets.
The show reported that Duplantis used his private plan for a one-hour flight from Fort Worth to New Orleans. That jaunt cost about $14,000. A regular flight would’ve been under $200. Guerrero also found that, contrary to Duplantis saying the plane was all about spreading the gospel to more people in less time, he had used the plane for 16 personal vacations to Hawaii. Damning stuff.
But the part of the segment that got the most attention online was Guerrero’s confrontation with Copeland, when she asked about how he wanted his congregation to pay for his $54 million private jet.
