Considering a career change? This may be the “how-to” guide for you!
Learn how to make a fortune as a religious con artist. This lucrative career has sustained countless scoundrels, frauds and hucksters for millennia. If you play the part right, you will be blessed with riches, power, prestige and sex.
Discover the easy, inexpensive ways to get religious credentials (and the tax-free status that goes with them), how to develop your following, how to tailor your message for maximum gain and how to weasel out of trouble when your lavish lifestyle or personal misconduct hits the fan.
Your victims will be the feeble, the old, the poor and the desperate, so this is for people with no conscience whatsoever.

In return, you will give them a good show, a temporary emotional high and a hefty dose of false hope. And you will be one rich SOB!
