Creflo Dollar is one of those tele-evangelists I have never liked or trusted. In the past, I have caught a few of his shows, but he’s one of those prosperity hucksters, and something seemed terribly dishonest about him, so any time his show comes on now, I automatically turn the channel. His show appears on TBN and other Christian networks.
I just saw on the news that he’s been arrested for hitting his fifteen year old daughter. I’m not surprised.

Megachurch Pastor Creflo Dollar Arrested
Megachurch pastor and televangelist Creflo Dollar — who has drawn scrutiny for his flashy lifestyle and preaching that prosperity is good — was arrested early Friday after authorities say he slightly hurt his 15-year-old daughter in a fight at his metro Atlanta home.
Fayette County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a call of domestic violence at the home in unincorporated Fayette County around 1 a.m., said investigator Brent Rowan. The pastor and his daughter were arguing over whether she could go to a party when Dollar “got physical” with her, leaving her with “superficial injuries,” Rowan said.
The 15-year-old was the one who called authorities, and her 19-year-old sister corroborated the story, Rowan said.
Dollar faces misdemeanor charges of simple battery and cruelty to children. He bonded out of Fayette County jail Friday morning.
