Minister of Greed Creflo Dollar Now Wants A Space Shuttle, Too

You may recall that Georgia-based televangelist Creflo Dollar recently told his congregation that he was seeking to raise the funds needed–about $65 million–so he could acquire a Gulfstream G650 private jet. Now the so-called “Minister of Prosperity” is defending wanting the jet and also saying it may be necessary for him to add a space shuttle to his fleet. Say what?!

First, Pastor Dollar’s defense of the jet:?In a five-minute video, Dollar tells the assembled congregants that, despite the ?devil trying to discredit [him],? he’s gonna go ahead and work on getting that jet. When Dollar was recently asked by a local TV station why he so desperately needed a private jet, he noted the worldwide scope of his ministry and then added:

?In order for me to do what I’ve been called to do.?The airlines they don’t fly my schedule.?

Quite frankly, I wouldn’t blame the airlines if they flat out refused to fly this money-grubbing piece of detritus for fear that the Almighty would cast any plane he was on into the nearest mountain range. But I digress.

Dollar has also told church members in recent weeks that he does not apologize for having big dreams:

?I can dream as long as I want to. I can believe God as long as I want to. If I wanna believe God for a $65 million plane, you cannot stop me. You cannot stop me from dreaming.?

And then the Minister of Greed completely jumped the shark and declared:

“(If) they discover there’s life on Mars. I’m gonna have to believe God for a billion dollar space shuttle. Cause we got to preach the Gospel on Mars.?

Now that’s the best idea I’ve heard coming from Creflo Dollar’s mouth in a long time. Think about it: We buy this avarice-filled bag of hot air a space shuttle and launch him into outer space. After he’s in orbit, we can tell him we’ve decided to not let him return to Earth.

Can I get an Amen?
