Help preacher Creflo Dollar get new wings

Creflo Dollar, pictured above with his wife Taffi, has launched a campaign to pressurise his World Changers Church International congregation into buying him a new, $65 million Gulfstream G650 jet.

According to Kirsten West Savali, writing for The Root:

The right reverend was traveling on his old private jet when the aircraft experienced engine failure. Fortunately, the pilot was able to land safely without any injuries or fatalities, but the incident was so frightening, Dollar felt compelled to reach out to his flock.

His G650 appeal reads, partially, as follows:

We are asking members, partners and supporters of this ministry to assist in the undertaking of an initiative called Project G650. The mission of Project G650 is to acquire a Gulfstream G650 airplane so that Pastors Creflo and Taffi and World Changers Church International can continue to blanket the globe with the Gospel of grace.

Nothing less than a Gulfstream will do to serve the Almighty

Nothing less than a Gulfstream G650 will do to serve the Almighty

We are believing for 200,000 people to give contributions of 300 US dollars or more to turn this dream into a reality – and allow us to retire the aircraft that served us well for many years.

Dollar, who made headlines in 2012 for allegedly assaulting his then 15-year-old daughter, reportedly has an estimated net worth of $27 million  – 200 times more than the $29,640 average annual income in College Park, Ga., where he holds court.

Savali asks:

Why can’t he pay for it himself? After all, this is a man who tells his followers that Jesus wants them to be rich, and if you pay him, he’ll show you how to do it. He unapologetically flaunts his wealth to prove to his congregation that the God of the Holy Bible will make those faithful to him richer than Empire’s Lucious Lyon.

His prosperity gospel has encouraged more materialism and greed that any episode of Basketball Wives ever could. And he walks around with more gold than Trinidad James.

She added:

The man should be ashamed of himself, but apparently he’s not. Anyone bold enough to tell a congregation that he had visions of executing anyone who didn’t pay tithes clearly has no conscience. Yes, he told them that the only reason they’re still alive is that he’s “covered with the blood of Jesus”:

Dollar is quoted as saying:

I mean, I thought about when we first built “the Dome,” I wanted to put some of those little moving bars and give everybody a little card. They’d stick it in a little computer slot. If they were tithing, beautiful music would go off and, you know, ‘Welcome, welcome, welcome to the World Dome.’

But … if they were non-tithers, the bar would lock up, the red and blue lights would start going, the siren would go off, and a voice would go out throughout the entire dome, ‘Crook, crook, crook, crook!’

Security would go and apprehend them, and once we got them all together, we’d line them up in the front and pass out Uzis by the ushers and point our Uzis right at all those non-tithing members ’cause we want God to come to church, and at the count of three Jesuses we’d shoot them all dead.

And then we’d take them out the side door there, have a big hole, bury them and then go ahead and have church and have the anointing.

Savali concludes:

I’m not Christian, but I know a master manipulator when I see one … He’s a charlatan, and I’m not at all surprised that he’s making this outrageous request. Nor will I be surprised when he reaches his goal. It’s just pathetic that during a time of such unrest and uprising in black America – when food safety is nonexistent, public education is dismal and the bodies of our children are piling up while politicians wave for the cameras – Dollar is busy scheming.

Instead of putting millions into the community, he’s pulling millions out of it just so he can fly above it all and tell his congregation to say “praise the Lord” while he does.

And there is nothing holy about that.

    You can listen to the genius on TBN. He is another proponent of the popular “Prosperity Gospel” – ie give all your money to me and I will become very prosperous. He has been mired in controversy, not least over possible misappropriation of donations. No doubt the result of “satanic opposition”.

    PS I heard one of them the other day saying that God (who wants all believers to be rich) had spoken to him about paying off the American National Debt. No kidding – watch this space!

    “The right reverend was travelling on his old private jet when the aircraft experienced engine failure. Fortunately, the pilot was able to land safely without any injuries or fatalities, but the incident was so frightening”

    Could this have been his god’s way of telling him he should not have a private plane?

    Surely if this was the case buying a new private plane will anger his god and next time he may get more that a fright.

    Here’s a sample:

    “See Yourself Prosperous”.

    Ever heard that anywhere before?

  4. Har Davids says:

    This guy’s fakery is so obvious that anyone who buys his bullshit deserves to be ripped off. For the sake of mankind, they should be neutered and sectioned, if nobody stops mister Dollar exploiting the feeble-minded.

  5. barriejohn says:

    I don’t know why he doesn’t just speak his new plane into existence:

    “What you’re doing where faith is concerned is going to look and sound and be foolish where the world is concerned”. No kidding!

    This dimwit who is more then smart enough to con people out of money, can ask a simple question common with these type of delusional people…..
    WWJD??? Well he would have his followers steal a donkey and ride that!!
    So dump the jet and do what jesus would do!!!

    The more I read about the many charlatan preachers and ministries I’m becoming convinced that this many people cannot be THAT dumb, and they attend and give money because they are believers in the experience they feel when attending so called “revivals, and less about faith…like an endorphin release.

  8. barriejohn says:

    Another prominent leech of this ilk is the oleaginous Joel Osteen (the “Smiling Preacher”). I am amazed at the size of his church – which was the former 16,800-seat Compaq Centre in Houston. They are clearly awash with money – they paid $11.8million rent in advance and $70 million for renovations. How can so many people be so easily deceived?

    “God’s Ways are Not Our Ways”. Too right!

    Marky Mark: It does remind me of experiences that I had with MLM (Herbalife). They seem more like salesmen than ministers of the gospel!

    The question I often ask myself is : are people really that gullible and stupid? Sadly the answer is yes.

    This charlatan claims his god and Jesus are powerful so could either repair his old aeroplane if they are prayed to?

  11. Stuart W says:

    I’m curious as to what Gimmieyour Dollar’s explanation would be as to why he can’t just use commercial planes, even first class. He and his wife could travel to a different country every month for a decade that way and it would only make a chip in $65 000 000.

  12. Trevor Blake says:

    I teach a course in how to get rich quick that can be delivered in only thirty seconds. Even better, I only ask for a third of what Project G650 costs.

  13. barriejohn says:

    Trevor Blake: That’s another thing that you will hear repeatedly if you tune in to these parasites. But are they trying to sell you something? Oh, no!

    “We would really like to share our resource material with you, so that you can learn more about…..For every GIFT of $15 dollars we will send you our DVD which contains powerful sermons on this vital subject to enable you to grow in God’s grace, blah, blah, blah; and for a further GIFT of just $5 we will include the latest music CD with uplifting songs from our worship leader, etc,etc, etc.”

    They’re running a well-oiled money-making machine!

    A grasping big mouthed barefaced charlatan ruthlessly exploiting stupefied credulous fuckwit american lardass dullards. Robin Bastard …. robs the poor …. keeps it for himself … and gets tax concessions too. Shame there isn’t a hell, or a high security cell, for him to go to. Mind you there is a kind of positive side to this in that he is not liberally proclaiming fatwas on gays, those he dislikes or those who may threaten to move in on his patch … unlike the rabid mullahs and imams who incite thugs and lynch mobs to assasinate anyone who they choose to be ‘offended’ by.

    Is there not a tradition of gullibility among all religions ? Remember the RC church’s selling of ‘Indulgences’? – if you want to commit a sin, first buy an ‘indulgence'(permission slip) and you’ll be OK. Or the sale of ‘relics’? In Elizabethan England when a catholic priest was hung, drawn and quartered, his faithful flock would often fight over the corpse, tearing off clothes and fingers and hair for future ‘reverence’ and profit.

    This lying piece of horse shite is just continuing an old tradition – he wants a new jet to ‘blanket the globe with the Gospel of grace’ – I could just see this guy 400 years ago slicing off the ears and nose of gallows victims and offerering them for sale to ‘blanket the globe with grace’. Odious cretin.
