Okay, but give us an example. Thing is, I doubt it would be that difficult to report this kind of thing out. As Riley does note, some Prosperity Gospel preachers have gotten into real estate, and it hasn’t worked out too well for some of their buyers, who in many cases are their followers, too:

Prosperity’s impact in Kirbyjon Caldwell’s Corinthian Pointe, a south Houston community the city labeled “affordable,” on the other hand, is clearer: According to the Houston Association of Realtors and RealtyTrac listings, more than 30 of its 454 homes currently face foreclosure.

Sounds like a story to me.
