Pastor Richards is a corrupt and wholly insane televangelist from Mars, Alabama, who promises salvation (in the form of a radiation-proof giant living space/effigy of Richards) to all those who pay him very large donations (he later reveals that he was actually planning on using the money to build himself a palace mansion in Hawaii) when a guest on Pressing Issues (VCPR). By the end of The segment, Pastor Richards snaps, and, disgusted by Barry Stark's nudism, pulls a gun on Stark and shoots him in the genitals, while Jan Brown passes out. Barry survives and "is in need of a proctologist". Pastor Richards also ends up claiming the station as his own for a short while. Pastor Richards was also once invited to a boat party by Juan Cortez, the only time he actually appears.
Pastor Richards was voiced by David Green.
- Pastor Richards was scheduled to give protagonist Tommy Vercetti a mission in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. However, the death of voice actor David Green saw the plans for the mission scrapped.
