    Unfortunately preying on the ideologically rigid stupidity of the right wing in this country can be very very profitable.

    The best example is Evangelical Christianity Mega Churches.

      (from the seller's side, anyway). Make absolutely no claims that could possibly be investigated. Promise all the good stuff only after the mark convert passes that one-way portal called Death.

      Easy as pi (which equals 3 in this scam's rulebook). No indignant victims. No indignant victims' families (because most of them believe in the con, too). No chance of actually being prosecuted as long as you stuck to the rules of the con, since the very society you live in is almost fully invested in the con itself.

      God-hawkers pretty much hold Most-Favored-Swindler status in the USA (and much of the Western hegemony).
