Dr. Leroy Thompson is one of many “Prosperity Pimp” pastors all over the world. These pimps come in all shapes, colors, genders, and denominations.
Their message is a simple one: being poor is a sin, being rich is godly.
They elevate greed as righteousness; they parade like peacocks in the wealth they swindle from their gullible congregations.
Here’s how these pimps operate. Let’s say you join Thompson’s congregation. You listen to his messages about money and how god wants you to have money. You start giving him your money. He convinces you that any success you have financially should be attributed to God working through him. Any financial setbacks you suffer should be attributed to the devil and your “lack of faith.”
Just like a pimp in the sex trade, Thompson and his ilk have built-in redundancies and defenses against anyone who would use logic to free his plump, juicy sheep. He’s a master at twisting and turning logical arguments against his “gospel” and using them to fuel his follower’s religious loyalty. This method utilizes one of Christianity’s most powerful drugs: the drug of “Persecution.”
There is nothing holier to many Christians than feeling as though you are being persecuted and condemned for “following Christ.” Pimps like Thompson know how to use this drug to keep his prostitutes high on self righteous pride 24/7.
Here is a video of this pimp at work. Be sure not to watch this on a full stomach.
