Police: Pastor Creflo Dollar choked, hit daughter

These Mega Church ministers in the ATL are off the chain. First, we had the sordid affairs of Rev. Eddie Long and now Pastor Creflo Dollar got popped by  Po-po for domestic violence.

I know many black folks are looking for spiritual salvation: many of us are praying for a messiah to deliver us from the shackles of Western domination, poverty and deprivation. In this quest we turn to spiritual guides to provide tutelage and inspiration.

I get that. 

But, yet in still, while a rose is a rose by any other name; a Creflo Dollar is a Klepto dollar by any other name. Real talk: I can not envision giving my hard earned dollars to a so-called minister named Rev. Dollar -- ain't gonna happen. My god -- pun intended -- to his credit, this man makes no bones telling you what he is really about -- your dollars. He even looks shiesty (as they say in the hood) and shady: matter of fact, he looks more honest in his mug shot than he does in his profile shot.

What man, while claiming to do god's work, would change his name to dollar? He is making a mockery out of Christianity and the church. And get this, his mega church has over 30,000 members. Yep 30,000 folks giving their dollars to Dollar.

Prosperity ministry 101: Here's how it is done.

It begins with poor, spiritual hungry, disillusioned and desperate souls searching for their pie-in-the-sky. Enter one jack-legged, smooth, charsimatic minister who knows how to pimp the word. His bait: god wants you to live in abundance -- by this he means, I want you to finance my luxurious lifestyle. Via his upbeat sermons, the flock, following the metaphysics of the prosperity message, begins to invite more success into their lives (something they could achieve without Rev. Trick Daddy). Consequently, the flock attribute their success to Rev and devote their lives to making him very rich.

The 15-year-old daughter of megachurch pastor Creflo Dollar told authorities her father choked and punched her, and hit her with his shoe during an argument over whether she could go to a party, according to a police report.
Dollar’s 19-year-old daughter corroborated most of her sister’s story, but Dollar disputed it, telling a sheriff’s deputy he was trying to restrain her when she became disrespectful. When she began to hit back, he wrestled her to the floor and spanked her, according to the police report.
Dollar is one of the most prominent African-American preachers based around Atlanta. His World Changers Church International has 30,000 members in the Atlanta area, and the ministry has satellite churches across the U.S.
Dollar faces misdemeanor charges of simple battery and cruelty to children. He has been released from jail and his lawyer said he was expected to preach today.
Dollar said in a statement Friday he loved his children and would never hurt them.
Around 1 a.m. Friday, his 15-year-old daughter called 911. She told a Fayette County sheriff’s deputy that she and her father argued when he said she couldn’t go to a party Saturday night, according to the report.
She went into the kitchen with her older sister. When her father asked why she was crying, she told him, “I do not want to talk right now,” the report said.
Her father charged at her, put his hands around her throat, began to punch her and started hitting her with his shoe, she told the deputy. The deputy noted a scratch on her neck.
Dollar told the deputy he wouldn’t let his daughter go to the party because of poor grades.
The deputy also interviewed Dollar’s 19-year-old daughter, who said her father grabbed the younger girl’s shoulders and slapped her in the face and choked her for about five seconds. She said her sister tried to break free, but did not fight back. When her father threw the 15-year-old on the floor, the older girl ran to get her mother. source

Eddie Long Stroke Update


  1. Christians always fall for hucksters. Their savior Jesus was the original huckster convincing his followers that he could heal the sick and raise the dead. He could walk on water and feed a crowd with one fish. He was their only representative for getting into heaven. This huckster was found out and crucified. His flock of followers couldn't accept his death, so declared that he had risen from death, showed his face for a minute, and went to heaven. He didn't go to his executioners and scare the sh-it out of them. Instead he purportedly was seen by a few ladies. At any rate, here we are two thousand years later with a host of other Christian hucksters who have the answers to all of the ills of the world. The only requirement for acceptance is that you hand over those "little green papers".
    When I was a kid, and attending church as required. I use to laugh at these poor ass people handing over their hard earned money to the church pimp, who was screwing every young girl in the church. That includes my own mother. One of those hucksters was my father. At any rate, my conclusion was simple. If there is a God, he must be one poor ass muther flocker, to need everybody's money.
    Did Creflo Dollar choke his daughter? Of course he did. Will he admit it? Hell no. Why? Because he is a huckster, and has the do as I say not as I do, mentality. I have raised five childrfen. They usually don't act out at age 15 unless they have lost respect and reverence for you. She knows that daddy is a huckster taking money from the poor. So she has probably called him out about that too. Going to a party is quite normal for a young lady who is becoming an adult. If he was paying attention, he would have known that she wasn't "daddy's little girl" anymore.
    She should write a book about being raised by a church pimp. I bet the whole family could capture the attention of any reader about being lead by a huckster, who is all about the dollar and nothing else.

    Whew, brother tell me who the heck "in church" stole your birthday money, i'll kick their as**** for you ! They have left a scar that is without question very telling ! I will not get into a debate over whether the GOD OF MY UNDERSTANDING EXISTS ...HE DOES AND I PERSONALLY DO NOT NEED CONFIRMATION OF THAT ! However in the interest of disclosure ...if you do not believe in the GOD OF THE BIBLE ..what is it /or who is it that you RENDER SACRED SERVICE TO(everyone does, no matter whether they define their BELIEF SYSTEM as a religion or self-affection ) reality to be honest however in most cases it has been my experience that most people use the word SPIRITUAL as a smokescreen for some form or other of (Arcane )=Occult belief even if it is the Masonic version that claims to be intellectualism but in reality is steeped in historic PAGAN DIETY RITUALS , DISGUISED AS CEREMONIES ! Whatever the case (i have actuially seen very few TRUE ATHEIST ..everyone worships something (even if it is onesself ) The Bible itself, denounces those who are masquerade Christians and even warned that they would be very loyal Church-goers and have all the bells and whistles that go along with the disguise , it even warned that many would be fooled by huckster ministers into THINKING that they are WORSHIPPING HIM ..there is a verse of scripture that say's IN VAIN DO THEY WORSHIP ME !

  3. For every one of him, there are thousands of great ministers that provide spiritual help and leadership. The bad ones must be called out and exposed.

  4. @Ebonytruthteller. I know it's hard for you to comprehend. But no one "stole my birthday money". Some of us only rely and believe in what we can see and rationalize. Christianity has always pissed me off, even as a kid in church. My sentiments are the same as those believed by many other people. Many of my close friends are even more pissed off and disgusted with Christianity. A lot of it has to do with their unfair influence on society and judgment of people. Look at how they treat gay people. They judge everyone who is not married and have children. I could go on and on about it. Maybe if that religion made some sense, I would feel differently.
    Don't kid yourself. Not everyone "renders sacred service", as you put it. I don't pray, never saw the point of it. It's another one of those arrogant Christian beliefs that everyone believes in something. My curiosity about life is satisifed with the evidence and proof that science provides. Everything from the big bang to the string theory are the only explanations I understand. There is physical evidence to explain all of it. Where is your irrefutable evidence?
    Cults are even dumber than so called organized religions. No religion in existence today has a solid foundation. Evidence says that the Romans created Christianity to placate and control the masses. That is documented, so I beleive it.
    I've never called myself an Atheist. I am a freethinker period. The word atheist is an insult word created by Christians to define those who don't believe in their religion. I really don't care what you call me. But your religion is a big problem for most of it's followers. It gives them a lot of false hope. This blog is about a man who has discovered how to exploit people, once he gets to them believe in him and that religion.
    I really don't have any particular people I dislike in the church for something they did. I am just insulted that I am suppose to follow this philosophy of giving my entire life to an invisible force, that I don't believe even exists. Do you enjoy Bill Maher? If not give him a try. He'll get you straightened out.

  5. Reverend Dollar is a crook; just as the other pastors. They prey on the people who fear the wraft of their God. I agree with Ron. Religion is just another tool that helps those who know the truth keep the people ignorant and enslaved. These (PROFITS) are concerned with only one thing; MONEY. In the Bible there is a verse that says, "Would a man rob God?) This is what they read in church before the offering is taken. They fail to read the whole verse. Deeper into this said verse, it reveals that God is speaking to the pastors and preist; not the people.
    I tend to look suspect at people who claim to be christians. They are more corupt than the sinners. Some people have been giving their money for over 20 years. Moreover, some of these places of worship have thousands of members. Shouldn't the church have enough money by now? Dollar is just a business man in charge of a religious corporation. A corporation that steals from the poor in the name of God These houses of falsehood have a lot of people under a hypnotic trance. Forgive them for they know not who Dollar is.
    Freedom is in your mind. However, if your mind is being controled; you have not chance at freedom.
