Pastor Melissa Scott… I love this story!
This is a crazy story, but I like it. I first became aware of it on the following site before doing my own research into it.
Anna Nicole does… Jesus? Well, sort of. America’s hottest televangelist is Pastor Melissa Scott, who struts her stuff on late night TV, and at the L.A. University Cathedral on Sunday mornings. She’s smart and beautiful, with impossibly long dark curls. No wonder she turned the head of the church’s former pastor, Dr. Gene Scott.
Gene crossed that river Jordan in 2005; Melissa had the keys to the kingdom. Mansions, Kentucky horse ranches, a collection of fancy cars, a private airplane, 24-hour bodyguards — and the church — are all now hers.

So I decide to check out http://www.pastormelissascott.com/ which is her official website. This is were it gets interesting. I’ll give you the summary.
Dr. Gene Scott was a televangelist in LA. He had his show on Cable because of his gimmick. He liked using beautiful women (aka porn stars) in his church, the so-called pony girls. They would sit in the front rows of his church, while the regular people had to sit in the back. Not only that, he would have a grand entrance for them, and the audience would have to applaud them as they entered. In addition to the church duties they would also work at Dr. Scott’s personal residence.
Some of these ponygirls are admitted Penthouse girls. But there was one that stood out.
Dr. Scott’s gimmick worked. He was raking in a MILLION DOLLARS A MONTH! Good hard-working Christians were sending him all their money, and he was unashamedly spending it on mansions, porn stars, and more…
Now the twist.
The 70 year old Dr. Scott decides to divorce his wife to marry the now Pastor Melissa Scott, age 40 years younger. She has beautiful long curly hair and… other interesting properties.
Even though she has no theological training, she is ordained by Dr. Scott and starts having a larger role in his church. Unfortunately Dr. Scott dies soon after. He had a medical condition and his new wife insisted on him taking herbs instead of medicine. Some doctors have noted that these herbs may have worsened his condition… but there’s still more.
After Dr. Scott’s death, his widow takes over the church, and it really begins to take off. Super hot, super inspiring… because she has a new gimmick!
It turns out that she is a genius and has just taught herself 20 languages! And she is fluent in all of them. Nevermind that they are all archaic languages of the bible that no one can understand, except for English… she can also write in all of them.
And she has an IQ of 187! Super hot and super smart! Check out this short clip.
Notice all the gibberish on top, and she’s “hoping” she is writing in English now… So anyways, who is Pastor Melissa Scott?
Some Penthouse stars have repeatedly claimed that she is a former porn star. When she married Dr. Scott, she had to get divorced also… from her porn maker husband!
Then on Easter Sunday someone blankets the church with pictures of the Paster, and porn star named “Barbie Bridges” and claims they are the same person. The pastor vehemently denies this. Accuses them of photoshopping and what not. More and more pictures surface… the denial continues. You can do your own research here for those.
Then, in an interview with Marie Claire magazine, she finally admits that she may have partook in some porn starry things…
I will conclude with why I think this is interesting. Besides being a Pretty Woman type scenario, she should have just come clean and say yeah, that was my former life (like porn star Erica Campbell). I’m sure the people would have accepted it, just like they did pageant stars Sarah Palin and Carrie Prejean, and that woman on the 700 club.
But she lied about it. So is she telling the truth about the 20 languages she speaks and writes? Is her IQ really over 180?
I’m pretty sure the answer is no. And this wouldn’t matter so much except that it’s a MILLION dollar a month industry for her! And this money is coming from poor churchgoers who think they are tithing… to GOD! Isn’t that what a tithe is? You give money to God by giving it to the pastor.
It reminds me of the following scene from Don’t Be a Menace:
“The Lord wants you to give generously to his church… don’t ask no questions… don’t ask how come, or why come the pastor has to have him a nice house, or why come the pastor has to have him a nice car… huh… don’t ask… I said don’t ask… I said DON’T ask… no questions… just give the money!”
If this sounds ridiculous, the skit in the movie, or Pastor Scott’s church, let me ask you this question (if you go to church). If you are struggling through these tough economic times, and you are tithing… does your pastor drive a nice car?
