Minister Creflo Dollar asks for $60 million in donations for a new jet - CNN.com

Quote:
The request goes on to detail that the luxury jet will transport Pastors Creflo and Taffi Dollar and member of the Dollars' church around the globe to help them spread the gospel.
So Pastor Dollar, who is seeking major dollars (sorry, I couldn't help it), can't fly coach to spread the gospel? Even first clas flights wouldn't cost anywhere close to $60 million for all of this guy's travels. Note, that figure doesn't even get into fuel costs! And people wonder why I'm so fed up with many of these pastors aka pimps of the pulpit. Seriously, I'm disgusted. Somewhat surprisingly, though, Dollar is being very open about matters, which I don't normally see mega church pastors do in such instances.

He needs the Gulfstream jet to spread the word faster. Nothing impresses heathens more than a pastor and his wife flying to their humble countries in a $65 million dollar jet.

Apparently, if you give this moron your money, you'll somehow get more money.

Anybody who gives their moron money to buy a privet jet is dumber than a pile of rocks.

Given the inherent gullibility of a religious flock, I wouldn't be at all surprised if he gets every last cent.

From the article:
Quote:
The Gulfstream G650 would comfortably allow the ministry make its way around the world. It seats up to 14 passengers with berthing for six, according to gulfstream.com. The jet comes with two Rolls-Royce engines, high-speed Internet and two multichannel satellites and allows for a 2-hour commute from New York to Los Angeles.


No Gulfstream can get from New York to Los Angeles in 2.5 hours - Gulfstream has never built a supersonic aircraft. Even the Concorde couldn't quite have made that run when you factor in takeoff/climb and descent/landing, even if it had been allowed to operate supersonically over CONUS.

Oh, I agree totally. Completely nuts. I thought this was a headline straight from The Onion when I first saw it in a newsfeed, but sadly it's as real as can be.

I thought it was from The Onion as well, it is somewhat surprising that is appears to be a legitimate story.
If there is one thing we can all learn from this story, it is that we all should proablly consider starting churches, because religious people are stupid clowns that you can make do anything you want, from flying planes into buildings to giving you money to by private planes.

Some people have no shame, he can't believe in god and ask people to buy his a private jet. If he believes in god why not ask god to give him one for free.
