Mega-church Pastor Creflo Dollar wants a $65 million jet and more fish stories defending the exorbitant expense
Mega-church Pastor Creflo Dollar has been in the news lately. Earlier this month, he sent out an appeal for 200,000 to donate $300 each so he could purchase a $65 million jet.
A Creflo Dollar spokesperson said in an interview on March 13 that Dollar needed the Gulfstream G650 to carry thousands of pounds of food and other supplies, as well as the word of God, worldwide. (Source)
Uh-huh. Yea, I want to see this mega pastor in a jet crammed with food and supplies. The kind of food and supplies they are talking about is caviar and scuba diving gear. Who are they trying to kid? I wonder how much salary Creflo Dollar’s spokesperson makes? He’d have to make more than peanuts in order to tell fish stories like that, don’t you think?
My friend, Kevin Oliver of NotYourTypicalNegro posted this YouTube video of a pastor who sure seems legit. Here is the transcript:
“Look, the bottom line is this. This is ludicrous, it’s insulting. Uh, I think at some point these mega-churches are going to come down, people are going to open their eyes, and we should NOT pimp the poor so that we can have a private jet and a private lifestyle that doesn’t benefit the congregation or the city, or people who are the least, the lost and the left out.
Jesus said, “I was hungry, come feed me. I’m in prison, come visit me.” THAT’S the Jesus I follow. I don’t know WHO Creflo Dollar is preaching about.”
