That is a shame.
I loved that wild-eyed madman.
Last I heard, his cancer had flared up again and he was not being treated for it, by his choice.

RIP, Gene.

He was one strange fellow, but I have to say, some of the stuff he taught in front of his chalkboard, rivaled the subject matter of Art Bell, even surpassed it in some respects. Subjects like the Egyptian Pyramids and how they are arranged in such a way as when you look down on them from space, are in the same configuration as the stars positioned to form Orion's Belt.

RIP Dr. Gene, and thanks for the many years of "entertainment".

I once went to see him preach and the venue was overflowing with people and so I left. The Cathedral was filled with art work, some of it were things that painted. He used to sell his lecture notes as art work. They were written on large sheets of paper and filled with Greek and Hebrew. He was kind of an amazing force in Los Angeles.

You can still watch and listen to his sermons on line. He had an irreverent type of humor for an Evangelical preacher. I kind of liked that crusty old guy!

Rest in peace, Dr. Scott. You served Him well. Your insight and openness in revealing the truth of the translations of His Word will be missed. Thank you for helping me to know my God better.

I remember Scott when I was a kid. He was the first televangelist I noticed, although he was not the standard televangelist at all.

I remember him before he had the scruffy beard and smoked his cigars on camera while "teaching." I remember when all that started happening. He got in some tax trouble and he began railing against the Calirfornia Tax Board and he'd fill his set with dozens of wind up monkeys banging their drums and call them the Attorney General.

He started railing against the Attorney General all the time on camera and that's when he grew his beard and all.

I remember he'd not really preach the word, but he'd teach nonsense like British Israelism -- that the lost tribes of Israel went to Britain and the Scots and English were the real Jews of the Bible.

Overall he seems to have been a character who didn't really do overtly negative things, unlike the charlatans on TV. But really, it's hard to know what he about about -- other than being about Gene Scott.

Saw him on the tube a few times. Always figured he do something like offer rides on Hale-Bopp or for handing out free Kool-Aide.

His wife Melissa made an announcement on their TV station, they plan on having a "send-off" for Dr. Scott on Sunday at his Cathedral (carried on the TV network), which can be seen on the web at this link. She also said the station will continue to air the years and years worth of teaching of Dr. Gene Scott. If I know Dr. Scott, his network has been on for as long as I've been born (34 years).

I remember watching him on the old satellite dish years ago, preaching some of the more bizarre ideas I had ever heard. Seemed every cultish gimmick from Pyramidology to the Bermuda Triangle was somehow woven into the web of religion and fantasy that he talked about. I recall thinking, "This is what charisma is," and wondering what it was about the man that made you want to watch him and consider some of his ideas. I never figured it out, but it was there.

He was a hoot. Remember his "art auction"? He auctioned off a bunch of crap that looked like a dirty-minded 7-year old drew it. He announced that "My Momma told me I could sh*t in jars and sell it!" Remember his telathon with biker-looking guys answering the phones? I also remember the Pyramid theories (wasn't there some buried treasure under them?)and footage of him bouncing around on a horse. He was on a local channel for a few months until they threw him off for non-payment.

Now it's all on Art Bell to discover and disseminate the hidden secrets of the Illuminati!

I used to watch him way back when.......was somewhat taken aback by his manner and wondered if he was for real and by coincidence saw him on a local TV station when we were on vacation. He had kinda "trimmed up" but still irreverent as ever. He was a hoot to watch. RIP.
