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.
The megachurch pastor was charged with misdemeanor simple battery and cruelty to children
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.
