Defending The Dollar!
This is a big scandal in the religious world. Crefelo Dollar a mega church pastor who attracts millions of people worldwide is involved in a scandal.
The World Changers Church International located in College Park, Georgia outside of Atlanta. The mega church he founded in the 1980s attracts worshipers. And yes, he's gonna need Jesus Christ in order to help him get out a crisis in the family home.
Dollar was arrested in Fayetteville, Georgia on charges of allegedly attacking his 15-year-old daughter. The initial report stated Dollar's 15-year-old daughter accused him of choking her, throwing her to the ground, and spanking her with his shoe. The official charges were simple battery and cruelty to children, both misdemeanors. He was later released on a $5000 bail.
On his program, he vehemently denied that he hit his daughter and called the charges false and discriminatory.
The followers have defended him and they're claiming that the young girl and her sister are lying to shame their father.
Now, I am agnostic and I haven't been to church in awhile. I always felt that those in the church are trying to push their radical views upon me and prop me up as a "turn around" to the faith.
I thought that religion is a tax free money maker. Anyone can claim they studied the teachings of a religion.
Do you think these mega-church pastors preach the word?
No one is perfect.
I don't want to make any judgement to say that Creflo Dollar is a violent person or he was wrongly accused of an issue.
But it comes to light of many other scandals plaguing Dollar. He was once investigated by the U.S. Senate for allegedly using his religious teaching to make himself a wealthy man.
This brings back the sex scandal plaguing fellow preacher Eddie Long. Long was accused of sexually harassing and sleeping with former male members of his church. They sued the pastor and some settled out of court with the pastor. The pastor is facing a separation from his wife.
Dollar and Long both preach for profit. They're rich! They can thank GOD for making them successful!
