Conventional wisdom suggests you shouldn’t discuss religion, so I think I’ve reached my quota for the decade today alone. This morning I wrote about the NFL player who thought Orbitz sending him a fare alert was a “sign from God.”
But that has nothing on this story, about mega-church pastor Creflo Dollar (an ironic name, given the story). At first I actually thought it was a joke. But it’s not.
Long story short, Dollar’s old private jet broke down, and he’s looking for the congregation to fund his new $65 million G650 jet. An effort which he calls “Project G650.”
They are looking for 200,000 people to give contributions of $300 or more to make this a reality. They even created a nearly six minute promotional video trying to convince people to contribute, in the name of God, of course. You have to watch it:
Interestingly they’ve now taken down the video, and also taken down the link to the contribution page on their website. Gee, I wonder why?
Absolutely sickening to try and raise $65 million for a private jet in the name of God, in my opinion.
