“Pastor” Creflo Dollar is Trying to Raise $65 Million for a Plane

I wrote a sternly-worded letter last year to my fellow Christians about how we use Christ as a crutch to justify our bad behavior. Well, here’s another example of foolishness in the name of Joseph’s Stepson.

Creflo Dollar, “pastor” (all shade. ALL OF IT) of megachurch World Changers Church International, is having a fundraiser to purchase a G650 plane. This plane costs $65 million and he’s asking 200,000 people to donate $300.

Creflo Dollar 65 million jet

I CANNOT EVEN. I went on Twitter and ranted my thoughts. Below are my feels, and if you can’t view it then go to Storify to read Creflo Dollar’s $65 Million Fundraiser for a Plane.

I know people will defend this dude too. And I will not understand. No parts of this is understandable to me. This is why we need 75 different ways to say “Fix It, Jesus.”

    I would tell him:

    “Preacha! Exercise that mustard seed faith. Get on that broke down plane and show folks what God can do.”

    Pastor Dollar gets no dollars from me.

    What’s sad is that his “flock” will actually support this and put up the money to buy it for him. #OldCrefAintGoneBeRaptured

    So, the only thing I’ve EVER given this guy credit for is that Creflo Dollar has to be his real name because, why make things harder by giving yourself a name that translates to “Charlatan” and then pursuing a career as a Prosperity Preacher? Seems counter intuitive (but jokes on me because it apparently worked out just fine for him).

    I had a friend when I went to college in Philly who commuted every week to his (Second) Megachurch in MSG and refused to go to any of the thousands of smaller churches nearby because, according to him, “small churches are always strapped for cash and taking up pledges for building funds and church vans and every expense that comes along.” Welp…

    Actually, his real name is Creflo Augustus Dollar Jr. A couple of folks that knew him in elementary school said he’s always been Creflo. Either way, he’s a fraud, a crook and an all around douchehat for thinking he should fly privately while Jesus walked. Before JC was even born, his mama only had a mule to ride. Maybe if he asked for a mule…

  8. March 13, 2015 at 2:13 pm

    Maybe he rode Spirit Airlines one too many times….just a thought.

    Clearly good sense skipped him. Was Delta busy? American Airlines not returning his call? He got tired of paying for water and snacks on Spirit?

    Folks like this remind me why Jesus is the original table flipper. I bet them Pharisees was doing some crazy mess like Creflo here, telling the people they needed a golden chariot or something.

    He ought to be ashamed. It makes me sad to believe he probably will get it.

    Can someone tell me why these evangelical pastors can’t fly commercial to save souls? Jesus did it on a donkey. But seriously where the hell are they going? And the funny thing is buying the plane is just a fraction of the total cost of ownership. So his congregants better get their envelopes ready cause it’s only just begun.

    His name should be changed to Klepto Dollar cause clearly he looking to steal people car notes and rent checks out they hands. He need 65 million so he can buy a private jet… Hell can I borrow $2.50 so I can get on the 5 train?? Shoot they bout to raise fares! Jesus didn’t even have a place to rest his head but look like old Klepto doing better than the Lawd because he can fly first class all the time! Smh

    My Gran used to watch his nonsense when I was growing up. I pray she never sent his a$$ money, but probably…sigh. “Shavestry” is so perfect for this bull and officially my favorite new word.

  18. March 13, 2015 at 8:06 pm

    You don’t even know how badly I needed this today. I kept reading these accounts on the interwebs thinking “there is a person named Creflo Dollar and he is leading folk?” Obviously, I am in the wrong bidness because damn!

    I could have more words but you have said it all in this succinct thesis as to why mofos should not be allowed out the damn house with a name like Creflo. I’m sorry, I’m petty and still on the name.

    Excuse me while I go put on my frozen can shirt…

    I think the church in the black community have failed us terribly,we are brainwashed by these greedy pastors, anyone who contributes to this should be able to fly on this plane anytime they want like a time share. This is foolishness.

    Rachel Stewart said it best “Jesus walked, why can’t you?” or something like that.

    I was raised in the church (southern baptist..I’m currently in recovery…LOL) and I will tell you the shenanigans and fuckery that took place there damaged my spirit in so many ways.

    It took me YEARS to get back to God as an adult.

    While it’s funny (not funny) these pimps are taking from these “sheep” the saddest part is the harm they are causing to those who are truly trying to live a God like life, those who want to do God’s work and get caught up in this foolishness.

    Every Sunday he’s preaching to young (and old) minds and twisting the world to suit his own needs.

    That damage is REAL and long reaching, that is the real “theft” here.

    As I like to say, I found my faith when I lost my religion. I spent too many years with some jack-legged joker in the pulpit telling me what I need to give him, while telling me that as a woman my purpose is to do what a man tells me to do. Last time somebody tried that I told him that old joke: anything that can bleed for a week and not die you better leave alone.

    Tithing has been so twisted and perverted I can’t get with it. You are supposed to tithe 10% of the INCREASE in your life, not the total. Look at it this way: You have 100 chickens; some hatched and you have 10 more. The increase in your wealth is 10 chickens – give one to the church (10% of the increase). And the church better show you when that chicken fed the poor, sick, shut-in, elderly, and orphans, not how Pastor Shuckandjive enjoyed the fried chicken Sister Goodchristian prepared for him last night (wink wink nudge nudge). And why does He who created the heavens and all within it need money anyway?

    Faith does not require club members or cash dues. And it damn sho don’t need a plane.

      And by the way – will that $300 include a free round trip ticket for the donors?

      And if they actually read some of the bible (just some), I think they will find out that Jesus didn’t wear the freshest sandals, rock the fliest robes, or push the finest donkey. These fake as preachers are betraying his purpose and sadly those people are falling for it hook, line, & sinker.

      There are churches with ATM`s in the lobby and some that require your W2`s for membership to be sure you are tithing enough. Are you nuts! That’s the day I show my ass because you ain’t getting shit. I promise you Luvie`s next story would be about the fool on YouTube who cursed the pretend preacher and his crew out because I wouldn’t hesitate to tell them to take turns kissing 100% of my ass.

    First time poster here. This fuckery here has inspired me. Like did he just pull “Creflo” out of the air? Is that a pimp name? Is he about to drop a mix tape? Was he a male stripper? So he can’t fly coach? His previous private jet was 30 years old. Awww. First world pulpit pimp problems.

    This is just ridiculous! Come on people, if you asked this man to help you pay your light bill or water bill, he probably would look at you crazy. In other words don’t get scammed by Creflo Dollar, but keep your money in your pocket. If he wants a 65 million dollar plane, he needs to pay for it himself. Hopefully, this is not true regarding Creflo Dollar, because God will not be please with him misleading people and pretending to be a man of God.

      I have family members who were faithful members of his church for years that fell on hard times. They went to the ministry to ask for financial assistance and were denied because they missed offering for two weeks (cause Creflo keeps records like the IRS). Creflo told them to pray on it and Jesus would provide.

    I mean……
    ok..this is pretty obvious but let me play HEAVENS advocate. theres nothing wrong with wanting to share the Gospel over the world. I
    sure others have a plane..how would they get to asia…tsunamis and other relief work……HOWEVER I have questions
    1. why cant you fly delta..
    2. maybe the ministry needs to expand but do you NEED a 65 million dollar plane..I mean theres no planes on clearance u can use
    3. is this really for missionwork
    4. do your congregants have ends like that…wouldnt God provide if it was needed why u gotta bleed folks dry.
    5. the obvious question..

    Yesterday on local news here in Atlanta (3/16/15) that his flight itinerary has been sealed since 2008, and he has dismissed requests from the feds and IRS in regards to taking a look into his finances. He obviously has some lawyers with tungsten balls, because they said that the government can’t request those documents due to his filing status and without probable cause. I think any person that consider themselves a person of the cloth and publicly asks for $65mil, they in itself is reason for probable cause

    Crefool needs to front 200k ppl $300. That is a better way to spread the word. You give me 3 bills I’ll listen to your thoughts for a minute even if you gave yourself that ridiculous name on purpose. But ask me, someone that is struggling, for a whole 3 hunned? Nope.
