Creflo Dollar has done an immense amount of backpedaling since his most recent fiasco of trying to weasel 65 million dollars out of his congregation. He has removed the video request from his website and all mention of it has been hush-hushed. Thankfully, his plan to travel the world in the fastest and most luxurious business jet ever built never got off the ground.
Some of the harshest words came from the faith community, including contemporary gospel’s Kirk Franklin who said: “When I camouflage my ‘greeds’ to look like ‘needs,’ that’s a shortage of character.” Others asked: Why couldn’t pastor and evangelist Dollar conduct his mission travels as most do, via commercial airline, rather than a Gulfstream G650?
Dollar has long been criticized for being a preacher who lives a lavish lifestyle with Rolls Royces, million-dollar homes and jets. The tax exempt status of his ministry — as well as five others — was the focus of a U.S. Senate committee’s three-plus year investigation that started in 2007 and was based on public complaints and media reports about large salaries, lavish expenditures. Dollar protested the investigation, which closed with no findings of wrongdoing. Committee investigators said Dollar and the ministry at that time had four airplanes, including the one he wanted to replace with the $65 million Gulfstream.
Dollar’s representative is maintaining that ministry takes thousands of pounds of food and aid with them on trips and this is why they need the Gulfstream G650. Anyone with half a brain can tell you that is bullshit. If carrying cargo is your excuse, then you need a cargo jet, not the most luxurious jet ever made. Let’s be honest.
