BUMMERS!

Bummer #1

I was a little sad to see that Dr. Gene Scott passed away a couple weeks ago. In this crazy world in which I am trying to come to grips, and find understandings, especially in Religion, I always found Dr. Scott a little refreshing and entertaining. I first came across Dr. Scott on my grandparents satellite dish, and then on a over the air station in San Francisco, and I just thought it was interesting how he would sit and smoke his cigar waiting for people to call, and how he could get everyone in his studio to stand at attention, "Yes SIR!!". I don't think he affected my beliefs one way or the other, but if I was ever bored, he was always on the air, and I'm glad that his website still broadcasts his shows! Click here to check it out! It looks like his daughter Dr. Melissa Scott has taken over, she has the same demeanor, but is much cuter!* (* check update below)


Farewell Dr. Scott!

Bummer #2

With the upcoming election in the United Kingdom on Thursday, there has been no Prime Ministers questions the last couple of weeks, so another loss of entertainment. But it has brought up an interesting question. Prime Minister Tony Blair's approval rating according to the funny papers is at an all time low, however in the election the voters are not voting for a particular person, but the minister in their district on the political party to which they are affiliated with. And which party has the most ministers the leader of that party becomes the Prime Minister. So what do you do, in my district the Labour party candidate could be a cool guy, but I don't want Tony Blair to be Prime Minister, do I vote for the conservative candidate even though he is a dufus. In some ways I suppose it makes as much sense as our Electoral College. So good luck U.K. and happy voting!
In the meantime CSPAN is showing the Canadian Prime Ministers questions, and it is extremely disappointing. I have never swore on this blog, and this is pretty tame, but all it is, is one Bitch session. What is the point! The opposition leader starts the questioning, and I'm paraphrasing, "Prime Minister, isn't it true that you suck, and all your programs suck, and that our programs are better, but because you suck, you won't even listen to our proposals because you're too busy sucking all the time!"
And the Prime Minister responds "That is a fabrication, I can't possibly suck that bad, because you suck worse!" And on and on and on. And to further tick off an American watching, a minister will come on and tell the Prime Minister he sucks in French! It was like watching a Sports reporter asking a player or coach after a loss "Why did you lose the game?" Duh, what do they really expect them to say? "We suck, or They scored more points than us!" The point I'm trying to make is, what is the point! If you are going to ask questions, ask a question that has some sort of a chance of getting an answer. Britain gets a little tense sometimes, but it actually seems like they are trying. I didn't understand one thing in Canada(despite the French) that showed they were trying to make any progress or solve anything. I could be wrong so if anyone in Canada can help me out I would be grateful.

Bummer #3

Ever since I was in high school I developed a nickname Claymate (my last name is Clay if you didn't catch it), so a young lady who had the privilage being my special friend would be a claymate. Well I find out now that fans of Clay Aiken are called "Claymates". This is completely unacceptable! I could wait it out, and hope his career tumbles, but hey Barry Manilow is still around, and I'm an easy going guy, so for now I have changed my email address to radioaffliction@gmail.com
Probably works better for the site, and when the show comes back on the air!

Well that's all I have for today,
Enjoy,
Until Next time,
PAC

* Update:
Turns out Melissa Scott is actually Dr. Scott's wife. Check the comments for all the details

Pastor (not Dr.) Melissa Scott is Gene
Scott's widow. She is former model/actress/film producer Barbi Bridges.

Yikes, thanks for correcting me.
Let's just say I was hoping she was his daughter, they way she was carrying on like Dr. Gene did.
I'm withholding further comment until I have seen more.

Things you may not know...
Gene Scott was an agnostic way back when his daddy was a preacher.
Gene Scott had mega-battles with then governor George "Duke" Dukmejian about Scott's fortune.
Gene Scott once had a toy monkey, you know, the ones that you bop on the top of the head and they play cymbals and grit their teeth. After displaying the monkey and hitting it on the head during the show he started receiving dozens of them from followers, including those with drums and horns. The reason he would hit the monkey, and all of the other mechanized toys, is to symbolically "bop" Deukmajian on the head for chasing him legally. It was quite funny to watch. He's say "hit George again...hit 'em again" and some stage goon would activate all the monkeys on the stage. You'd see cymbals, drums, etc. being played by these toy monkeys.
Gene Scott once got mad at me for calling in. He was quite upset with the people calling in so he told everyone to stop. Well, they did...except for me. I called in during complete silence. You could hear the phone ringing in the background. He called me a name and they never picked the phone up.
Ah, the good old days when Scott would admonish the t.v. followers for not donating enough money and would literally sit there and stare at the t.v. monitor for an hour straight while the poor band played the same song over and over again.
I'll miss him.

I actually called the "voices of faith" and asked why pastor Melissa Scott wasn't teaching.I guess she has caved in to the critics.I'm in tears.I support her and I know she got my message.She has gotten a hugh load to do,that's for sure.She is so beautiful and her mannerisms are so lovingly expressive.Can't you see the gift that Dr.Scott has given us to
ponder,admire and share with?I was so thrilled to hear her speak after "Doc"
passed.She had always only sang.Her tributes to her husband were so real and natural,even with the old videos.I know some of the insides of the ministry and as my daddy said to me,"Son,you can't live your whole life on B.S.",so tell me how did this ministry survive?Try by truth.

I was blessed to be singin at Dr. Scott's side for many years. That began my most super natural experience in the living Christ man inside every believer walking this planet. I worship the
female anatomy like no other, it is mighty fine. I'm sure Doc felt the same way and went out grinnin' with ten years of having his babiy Melissa Scott, aka Barbie Bridges, blow his horn. Rest in Peace Gene Scott.

Pastor Melissa Scott (televangelist) continues using trusting souls and taking them for their life savings and self-dignity. She has no family, doesn't want any, and doesn't allow her inner circle to have them either, unless they are all enslaved to worshipping her.

See Melissa Scott as Barbie Bridges, with frontal nudity adult photos and acting in the adult video Picture Perfect. She and former husband Paul Pastore established and ran the porn production company Barbie Bridges Ent that markets numerous explicit
films on the internet today.

Melissa Scott, aka Barbie Bridges, Gene Scott's widow, is educated in humping the brass pole, stripping for dollars, bewitching loaded geezers & ripping off the public.
Inside talk is that she's sunk to doing the bare minimum, for a mandatory year before looting the ministry. There's a staffer doing
overtime at night in her digs.

Melissa Scott Barbie Bridges is more like Eugene Scott's granddaughter. Her reputation as

legendary. See her tall gold spiked boots make for walking, on the internet at Suze Randall.

Gene Scott was one angry piece of work. Pastor Melissa Scott (televangelist) of Christian religious scandals, is out of sight
pissed at the world in the same ilk. Everything is about her. Even the Bible. God must have written it just for her.

Calvin said...

Pastor Melissa Scott, model Barbie Bridges & widow of Gene Scott celebrates the end of her first year on the throne. Her controversial adult industry past is exceeded by her removal of the free Archives on Dr. Scott's web site and of antique bibles from the church lobby. The shepherdess has caused her flock to scatter, as scandals snap at her heels.Last week her attorney Patricia Glaser made news defending her partner Terry Christensen when he was indicted on felony eavesdropping in connection with Pellicano indictments. The illegal tactics are alleged to have gained legal advantage to the firms clients, of whom Pastor Meliss Scott is one, by tapping the phones of key witnesses and opponents.

Pastor Melissa Scott beats money out of her
beasts yoked to her whims. Melissa is a mean
queen bee who enjoys inflicting harship and
pain on the powerless. Her Barbie Bridges
sexual innuendos and money grubbing
blasphemes the gospel. All she wants is
money and attention. It's a sad church, an
abscess on the perfect body of Christ.

DanielD said...

God will deal with Pastor Melissa Scott's
hypocrisy and lies. Satan is the father of
cheaters and liers, especially when they
abuse the trust of their pastor position.

Loser Barbie Bridges Pastor Melissa Scott's a joke. She can't even read Dr Gene Scott teachins written out in block print for her.
Porn and drugs will fry a brain.

Mr. E. Nigma said...

I watched her last night. She sounded like she knew what she was doing. I am not sure how old the tape was. I alwasy admired Dr. Gene Scott. I was surprised when I found out his wife had taken over. I thought he was still married to the other lady.
I don't know if she is crooked or not. I am not the one to judge that. If she continues I will give her a chance.
Dr. Gene Scott was a very intelligent man. I'm sure he protected his church from anyone coming in and destroying all his work.

Herbert Johnson said...

Are Barbie Bridges and Pastor Melissa Scott one and the same?
I have only found a few pictures of Barbie Bridges. I see some resemblance, but I cannot be certain. Does anyone have proof that this is indeed true?
a website? something.
Thanks

Barbie Bridges has many fans in Europe and Asia. Her solicitation skills serve Pastor melissa Scott well as she gyrates and temps dancing with the devil. She whines like a siren to send her money as the best receptacle for offerings to God. It's common knowledge she figuratively spits on poor wretches with the compassion, generosity and spirituality of a turnip. Cheryl

Paula said...

I have been watching Pastor Melissa Scott for several months now and really enjoy her messages, I can't turn it off- Since I started hearing all of the stories of her "past" I started to worry b/c I believe as a Christian that we have to be aware of false profits. The question is does anyone know if she has admitted her past and publicly repented? I called the 800 # to ask some questions-what a joke that was. We all sin and fall short of the Grace of God so we should not judge but I don't want to support her if she has not repented publicly and it should be publicly b/c she is a teacher of the Word of God and needs to be accountable! Please I really want to know soon!

Melissa mentioned that she had a female partner of 20 something years who died and she grieved her death. Was she a partner or just a friend? If she was married to her husband from 2000-2005 and her partner died in 2006, did they all live together? Why would she call this lady her partner? Karen

I'm not even sure if I believe that she used to be a porn star. Everyone says "Just Google it," but Googleing "Barbi Bridges" just gets more links to pages that make the claim - no photos at all.

Some doubt the credibility of Dr. Scott's claims that Melissa spoke 15 languages and has an IQ of 186, particularly when Dr. Scott's doctors had to tell her to stop feeding Dr. Scott herbs which were interfering with his prostate cancer test results and treatment. Dr. Scott died of terminal
prostate cancer in 2005.


Controvery surrounds Pastor Melissa Scott as she hammers volunteers for free servitude, demands money to pray for callers and insists that those who have stayed in her church double and triple their monetary giving and
time to help her make ends meet. This is amid court documents and reports that she has been liquidating cars, horses, and real estate that Gene Scott acquired through church donations, to buy herself a downtown L.A. swank condominium and further her own celebrity preacher and singing
acclaim.


Religious group watchers are baffled with her methods of banning loyals and harrassing newcomers for their time and money. While preaching to be a
messenger and steward of
Dr. Scott's teachings, Melissa Scott has removed the internet archived teachings Dr. Scott always make awailable for free.
The new broadcast locations and times are filled with Mrs. Scott's novice sermons, replacing the classics of Dr. Scott.


Recently, Pastor Melissa Scott raised eyebrows within her church by an about face plan to teach the prosperity doctrine, with a catch. It's prosperity for her church and the most loyal who have devoted their lives to it, not for the poor, homeless, meek, weak or disenfranchised.

Well I started watching Dr. Scott in 1980'ish on open transponder home satellite and got to know him pretty well through the years.

He was a trip and knew what he was talking about when it came to scripture and he "Debunked the Carnal Lie" that one can 'Work Themselves Into Heaven' and that burned the Charismatic's and the Evangelicals hides boy !!!

In essence, he tossed the 'Fire and Brimstone, You Are Going to Burn in Hell' preachers out on their ear ..... Scott killed off 'Legalism' and told the truth in as far as asserting that Jesus Paid the Price once and for all and we are FREE and not hewn into any burden of the world.

I will leave Dr. Scott's strange ways up to the beholder and not judge him as best I can try not too.

No man can make it into Heaven by works ,,,,, only by Faith and that Faith is simply knowing Christ loves you and all you do is for His Glory and be gone those who would chain you to a pew every Sunday and chastise you to absolute death for living your life the other Six Days .... it is not right and Christians are waiting for the Fires of Hell because they believe in some idiot pastor more than they believe in God and His Son's Words.

If you can never see above your Pastors head, then you are not looking for the Face of Christ and even Bruce Lee understood that if you see some one pointing toward the Moon and you stay focused on that person's finger, you will surely miss "All That Heavenly Glory" ... Pretty smart analogy for Christians to follow huh ??? Stop looking at your Pastor's Head and seek the Face of God and Christ !!!!

Now as far as Ms. Gene Scott, well she is a Christian Rebel and is not in any authority from God.

To by-pass being taught by those in authority of God and 'rising one's self up' to become a Pastor or Leader of a Congregation out side of that Authority is pure sin. And I do not think Ms. Scott was called to Preach while on her way to Damascus by the Lord Jesus Christ Himself as Paul was. She may have a pretty face and some skills at language and verbiage, but she is incorrect to take a lead that she has not been given authority to have by the calling of God only.

And even if she was 'called', she still must be taught under the authority of God, whether that be in a Bible College - Seminary - Catholic or Jewish School or by Senior Pastors .... you can not just jump up one day and build a church and claim to be a pastor ... you are rebelling against God period and I don't write this to please men either .... so take it on it's merits and check it out for your selves.

I also desire to stand before a flock and teach God's Living Word, but I do not do it for I know it is wrong until I have done the learning from those who have been there and done that for many many years. And I am old enough to be a lot of Senior Pastors Father. So I do not talk from youth, but rather from long years trying to figure out the Biblical Truth and that truth is so simple that it mystifies 99% of us all.

What is that truth you ask ..... Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was born of a Virgin, was given Authority to make Fishers of Men, taught 12 to be the Teachers of all the World, was sentenced to death so WE ALL COULD BE FREE, died on the Cross bearing ALL OF OUR SIN, past, present, and future, then rose from the grave on the 3rd day to bring the Holy Spirit to the original 11 and the multitude more He called to be with the original 11, and stayed with them and the others for better than a month after the Resurrection, then returned to Abba, The Father with His wounds still bared until the end time.

And yes, in a word, there were still 12 ... Judas was seen in the company of Jesus after the Resurrection too the original 11's disdain and confusion. Christ told them that Judas was 'none of your business' .... so that one I leave there.

Proper Authority or not, Gene Scott never once denied these facts and for Ms. Scott to attempt to take up his stead is a farce and an abomination and my book, The Holy Bible says so.

But then that is what the Lord meant when He said "they will come before me and say Lord Lord we did all these great and wonderful things in your name and I, The Lord, will say to them, I do not know you" ....

Do not stay in the lie .... you are free because Christ Jesus made you FREE with his INNOCENT BLOOD .... do not mock Him by disobeying His Authority and 'not repenting quickly' of your Trespasses .... and we all have Trespasses and will have them until we are with Him in Heaven ... all we have to do is believe in the Holy Trinity and His Blood and give Him an Open Heart so he can Love Us as we love Him and we are FREE !!!!!!! FREE !!!!!!! FREE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There is no "Religion" that is any good .... Religion is sending more people to Hell than Unrepentant Sin is ....

Apostle John of the original 12 knew better than most when he wrote these words - - "The Disciple Who Jesus Loved" - - that Disciple was John and John was wise enough to know that Jesus loved him more than any other person ever could or would ...... WE TOO are the Disciples Who Jesus Loves and if you don't know that, you have just been told .... accept it and get all that garbage off your shoulders for you are under no yoke and never will be again if you just believe in what Christ said in the Gospels.

Remember, Christ was 'I AM' before the beginning of the World and the Universe .... He is not some 'after-thought' sent to eek out the saving of men's souls.

He is "The I AM" for ever and ever.

Ms. Scott, your husband put other Pastors down a little too much for my taste .... only God and His Son are able to Judge .... you best read that Old Book called the Holy Bible before you stick your entire body in your mouth any more than you already have. How is it that Dr. Scott allowed all the wicked into his church every Sunday, yet could not forgive Jimmy Swaggart or Jim Bakker for simply being human and falling as we all do.

I watched your 'aging husband to be', dancing with you and at least 3 other scantly clad young ladies and watched in horror as he fell flat on his face into a stone wall .... if you care to elaborate on that moment I am sure we would all like to know why we should view him any more or less flagrant than Swaggart or Bakker ???

I suggest that you get properly trained and then teach from the Knowledge of God, not from what the 'Person you see in the Mirror tells You' .... and yes, should you continue, you SURELY will be as you say, "The Worst Sinner in the World" (your words Ms. Scott, not mine).... your late husband would be the first to tell you this or all he ever taught was a pure lie .... don't be Greater than the Teacher Ms. Scott for you truly are not and neither is any other 'Instant Preacher' ....

Embrace the Living Word with all your heart and learn the Word before you profess to know it 'Intimately'.

Wow!! what a lot of bitter angry jealous and obviously religious people. What's the big deal about Melissa Scott? If you truly believe God will judge us all relax! If she bothers you that bad turn off the computer, pick a different channel, go for a walk. For me personally she is a Mary Magdalene of our day. She knows those nasty pictures are out there and she knows she can't do anything about it. Frankly I admire the fact the didn't try to make an "ex-porn goes holy ministry" She doesn't speak of it except to state she is the "worst sinner of all".She teaches with a dignity that can only be described as a miracle given where she comes from. Why can't you be thrilled she got saved and is going to heaven? So what if she's teaching. I haven't heard you site one error in her teaching. Not one. I watch her on the streaming video every single day because I can't get fed the word of God ANYWHERE like I get it from her. Regardless of how she got here how you can say she is not qualified is beyond me, and the seminaries and colleges today??? Like they could teach HER something? You sound very bitter towards her maybe you're the one who should repent. She's not hurting you by teaching the word. God will judge every one of us and we will ALL be found lacking, the only difference will be who chose Christ!
