The story broke on February 20, 1988, four months after Swaggart had promised to confess his sin. On February 21, 1988, on his television show taped in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Swaggart tearfully confessed that he was guilty of an unspecified sin and made comparisons to himself and King David.

Here is a BBC presentation on that whole affair. The quality is not stellar, but finding any video on this subject has proven to be quite challenging. (If you can not watch it do your own search, nobody can laugh at God’s revelations)

The fact that people still follow this insane religious freak just shows how many people in this world are misguided and rather hopeless.
