Prosperity Gospel Preacher Needs Money To Buy a Private Jet
Creflo Dollar – which I confess is the best name for a pastor ever – needs a new private jet so he can fly around the world bringing the good word to people who can’t afford proper nutrition.
He just needs 200,000 people to reach into their pockets and give 300 dollars apiece. When you put it that way, it doesn’t sound like quite so much money. I mean, you’re really just giving it to god. Through an intermediary, sure, but Dollar will make sure every cent gets to god.
Well, I mean, he’ll put in a good word for you with god. Not personally, of course, because 200,000 is a lot of names. But god will know.
What Dollar is doing is using god to justify his lavish lifestyle and getting the faithful to foot the bill.
Do we all think Dollar will use that new airplane exclusively for spreading the gospel or do we think it might get used for a family vacation or two?

Baptist Church Plans to Dump the Boy Scouts because They Don’t Hate Gay People
The Boy Scouts expected that they would get some pushback from members of the faith community when they chose to accept openly gay scouts. Good thing, too. Because they are getting it.
Baptist ministers are saying that they have no choice. It is not a hate thing. It’s a morality thing. They just can’t support the Boy Scouts now that the organization has embraced a morally improper lifestyle by accepting openly gay scouts.
That isn’t hate. They feel really badly about the whole thing. It isn’t their fault. It’s god’s fault!
I mean, sure, Jesus preached forgiveness and all that bullshit but not if you aren’t willing to deny your own sexuality because god doesn’t love you just the way you are.
Yeah. Fuck those guys.
