True Story
Posted On 01/12/2021 12:49:52 by laurie2

Back in approx. 1973 they held the lottery differently than they do now.  If you had a winning ticket, you would enter it in to a drawing for a milllion dollars.  Back then it was worth more than it is now.  My dad purchased one of these tickets.  He didn't tell any of us kids.  My mom was passed and he was out of work.  The winners were supposed to be televised as they spun a giant wheel and whoever it landed on won the million.  My father, after he stopped drinking, became a Pat Robertson fan.  He said that Pat R. said one day that someone was going to give him a million dollars.  My dad MAILED the ticket with a note.  It said, to the effect that he was out of work and he had received word from God that he had to give the ticket to Pat Robertson  Still, I feel he just didn't want to go on TV.  CBN didn't win the million.  When I was going to write about it; I still have his note and the newspaper article about it; CBN would not acknowledge that it ever happened.

Thanks Dianne.  I was so upset that he did that.  Well, it shows how someone can become "taken" with certain fake personalities.

Interesting story, Laurie. Oh, my--and when he was out of work, as well! I hope he didn't give PR any cash before or after that!   My late father-in-law had a cousin who went through her entire (small) fortune, giving it to a St. Louis televangelist. Plus, we believe she sold some vintage Revolutionary War swords, to give the money to that same person.  Her daughter, who never married, lost the family property (actually 2 houses) & ended up in a tiny apartment after her mother died. Sad.
