Seed money

I saw a televangelist on TV (obviously) the other night.  It was late, and I was clicking channels, and just stopped on this station, amazed at what I was hearing.

The "pastor" wanted listeners to send in $1000 of "seed money" for a miracle.  Send this money in, and the lawsuit against you will go away.  Send this money in, and the credit card debt you have accumulated will be corrected.  Send this money in, and your problems will disappear. 

As I watched, I noticed a disclaimer on the bottom of the screen.  "Miracles are acts of God.  This ministry does not guarantee that a miracle will actually happen."  (Or something like that.)

God, with a warning label.
