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.
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?
