If his congregation wants to support him, then they want to support him. What's it to me??

I remember when another tele-evangelist put out the word that God would kill him if he didnt raise a certain amount of money. He got the money. What's it to me??

I can see, since the church doesnt purchase a plane but every so often, why he would want the most current. Its probably not a purchase that that church will be making again for another 20 years or so, afterall.

I really dont care. There are a lot worse things people can do with their money than buy a plan for missionaries to safely travel on, afterall.

I remember reading somewhere about a rich man getting into Heaven. Oh well, enjoy it while he can. And there will be people stupid enough to give him money.

As an Atlantan, this does not surprise me in the slightest. The whole town of college park is backwards and stupid.

You can't make this sh-t up ...

The pastor's name is Creflo DOLLAR who runs a "ministry of prosperity"!

With so much supplies to deliver to the needy around the world, he needs a puny $60M G-stream instead of a bigger cargo plane.

The website begging for the money has been taken down ... LOL!!

But there are also a lot better things people can do with their money.

this is why churches should be taxed. the money they raise for a jet could do wonders in poor communities.

I totally agree. Most of these mega churches don't care about anything but getting you to give. They try all sort of shenanigans. Don't trust them. It's all about the money!
