Damn! I missed my calling; and by calling, I mean calling … to God … cuz I could use some big time toys.
See, one Minister Creflo Dollar — yes, his last name is Dollar which should be Clue #1 as to whom, or what, he most often prays — is a preacher at World Changers Church International near Atlanta and has asked roughly 200,000 members of his congregation to send him $300 each so he can …
House the homeless. No.
Help find a cure for HIV/AIDS. No.
Feed the hungry. No.
Minister Dollar needs the money … he needs the money, y’all … because he wants to buy a new jet.
Dollar released his Money Beg in a new video telling his congregants that he needs just $60 million more to buy the $65 million Gulfstream G650 so he can continue doing the work of Jesus … who, if I am right, did the same work in a pair of sandals.
And there’s the problem with organized religion: asking, no, begging for coins so you can travel in high style while you do the Lord’s work; asking, no, begging, for coins from, people who may have one, two, even three mortgages on their homes, and live paycheck to paycheck; asking, no begging, for the needy to help you buy a luxury plane so you can help the needy.
Why not do a Money Beg and then actually help someone other than yourself, Minister Dollar, or should we call you Minster Sixty-Five-Million-Dollar?
