What Is This World Coming To? Pastor Creflo Dollar was arrested Friday at his College Park Mansion on charges for simple assault. Apparently, Dollar's daughter called the Police on her father alleging that he grabbed her by the neck and choked her, after an argument about her attending a party. The icing on the cake is that Creflo is denying the incident altogether. Pastor Creflo Dollar's character is getting more shady by the minute. First, it was his shady statements in regards to the poor, and the favor shown by God to the rich. Now he is seeming to be a womanizer, who is pretty much dillusional. I've heard of the biblical terms spare the rod, spoil the child; However, he choked his daughter, what kind of message does that send to his followers. This is unfortunate because while there are some of us shaking our heads or even in disbelief; someones watching and getting the idea that it's ok to choke your daughter, or even another human. These are sure signs of a womanizer at it's worst, and he calls himself a Pastor. Check out the story as I read it below.
According to MyFoxFW,
COLLEGE PARK, Ga. -- Televangelist and Georgia megachurch pastor Creflo Dollar on Sunday denied allegations that he assaulted and choked his teenage daughter.
Dollar, 50, was arrested Friday at his home in College Park, Ga., on charges of simple battery after allegedly grabbing his 15-year-old daughter by the neck and choking her. He was released later Friday on $5,000 bond.
Speaking Sunday to his congregation at the World Changers International Church, he said, "a family conversation with our youngest daughter got emotional," WSB-TV reported.
The 15-year-old called 911 early Friday and said her father had choked her, scratching her neck, after an argument about attending a party.
Fayette County Sheriff's deputies said the pastor's 19-year-old daughter had corroborated her sister's account.
Dollar said Sunday that he never should have been arrested, according to WSB-TV, and denied that he hit or choked the teenager. He claimed a mark on his daughter's neck was from eczema.
"Anything said to the contrary is exaggeration and sensationalism," he said.
In addition to being the founder and head pastor of World Changers international, Dollar operates Creflo DollarMinistries and the Creflo Dollar Ministerial Association, as well as the Christian record label Arrow Records.
