1935: Televangelist Jimmy Swaggart, who has preached to crowds around the world through his weekly telecast since the mid-1970s, is born in Ferriday, La. Sexual scandals in the late 1980s and early 1990s led the Assemblies of God to defrock him, and to his temporarily stepping down as the head of Jimmy Swaggart Ministries.
