Creflo Dollar, the televangelist with a reported net worth of $27 million, wants the loyal followers of his World Changers Church International to foot the bill so he can be fly like a G6. He's asking for a new, $65,000,000 Gulfstream G650 jet after his last private jet experienced engine failure.
Here's his shameless plea for donations:
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. 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.
Apparently when Dollar says, "God will make you rich," what he really means is your followers will make you rich if you rope them in with Jesus. But this shouldn't be surprising from a man who says he wants to shoot people who don't donate in church. Or who won't even give out Halloween candy to trick-or-treators.
I used to trick-or-treat in Creflo's neighborhood He would never turn his lights on And he would never open his gate A gate, w/ dollar signs— Rembert Browne (@rembert) March 13, 2015
Creflo Dollar asking for 65 million dollars for a gulfstream private jet is the least absurd thing i've heard about Creflo Dollar— Rembert Browne (@rembert) March 13, 2015
Maybe he should just try this instead:
