Seriously, I cannot stand this guy. I remember when I used to watch this money grubbing hoodlum on the tube when it was cool to be a Christian and I was amazed at how much money he had and how much success with his fans. I call them fans because there’s no other way to describe his folks, but lost sheep or followers.
This guy is so full of himself, but isn’t that the case with all pastors? Of course it is. Oh, by the way, I am Atheist. But I used to be a Christian, few years back. And this is one of the reasons that I decided that following some imaginary man in the sky was kinda fucked up. Not only that, I actually begin to read the bible and see it for the load of crock it is. I admit, there is some inspiring stuff in there, but just like any author can spot, I can detect a well written story. (Parts of it anyway).
So, this guy, chokes his daughter, beats her and emotionally scars her gets a $5,000 bond? And he gets to go back home to where this child victim is. I hope they remove ANY AND ALL kids from his house and he should not be allowed to raise children from this point. Seriously, I was waiting for this douchbag to come forth with whatever his issues are. What a prick? And where is Taffy in all this? Creflo strikes me as a dictator, as all pastors must be in order to get others to obey them rather than the good book. But don’t you get tired of reading about another pastor who is caught up in some shit/scandal and now they are all sorry and asking for prayers from their customers? When will this shit end? As soon as peoplen wise up and start to think for themselves.
Creflo Dollar has tons of money, and he will never need money again,
FAYETTEVILLE, Ga. — Creflo Dollar, founder and pastor of World Changers Church International, was arrested early Friday on charges involving the choking of his 15-year-old daughter.
Dollar was taken into custody at his Fayetteville home and charged with simple battery and cruelty to children, NBC station WXIA of Atlanta reported.
According to the report from the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office, Dollar’s daughter called police to say that her father attacked her after they argued about whether the daughter could attend a party.
The report says the daughter alleged that Dollar choked her, then threw her to the ground, punched her and hit her with his shoe. The responding officer noticed a scratch on the daughter’s neck near her throat; the daughter said her father gave her the scratch during the fight.
When police interviewed Dollar, he said he tried to restrain his daughter when she “became very disrespectful” after he told her she couldn’t go to the party, according to the report. Dollar admitted to spanking his daughter and wrestling her to the floor, but said it was because she hit him.
Dollar was taken to the Fayette County Jail after his arrest. Fayette County Police spokesman Brent Rowan said Dollar had his first appearance in magistrate court Friday and posted $5,000 bond, WXIA reported.
“As a father I love my children and I always have their best interest at heart at all times, and I would never use my hand to ever cause bodily harm to my children,” Dollar said in a statement released by his lawyer Nikki Bonner and obtained by The Associated Press. “The facts in this case will be handled privately to further protect my children. My family thanks you for your prayers and continued support.”
Dollar will make no further comments since he’s involved in an ongoing criminal matter, but he is expected to preach Sunday, Bonner said.
According to his website, Dollar began World Changers ministries in 1986 and it grew, moving in 1996 the 8,500-seat World Dome, built in College Park for nearly $18 million without any bank financing. He and his wife, Taffi, church co-pastor, have five children. The ministry has 16 satellite locations and plans more. Creflo and Taffi Dollar also host “Changing Your World” television and radio broadcasts. The program is featured on the Trinity Broadcast Network.
Dollar was among six televangelists investigated in 2011 by Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley and the Senate Finance Committee. Their report raised questions about the personal use of church-owned airplanes, luxury homes and credit cards by pastors and their families, and about the lack of oversight of finances by boards often packed with the televangelists’ relatives and friends.
Dollar and his World Changers Church International of College Park and Creflo Dollar Ministries were among four televangelism organizations that the committee said did not cooperate with the investigation.
Dollar was a favorite of Rudy Eugene, the naked man shot dead by a Miami officer May 26 when, police say, he would not stop eating the face of a homeless man, Ronald Poppo.
“We watched Creflo Dollar Ministries every morning,” Yovonka Bryant, Eugene’s girlfriend, told a news conference covered by NBCMiami.com on Wednesday.
This guy has not a care in the world, because as long as there are
desperate mindless folks out there who have to believe in this god nonsense, he will always have a pulpit to spew his religious bullshit.
I feel sorry for his daughters who will have to face this freak again and may have no defense. I was asking where Taffy was at in all of this. But the truth is, no matter how we want the woman to be there for her daughters, if he is beating the shit outta the kids, then Taffy may have been a punching bag as well. These guys get diplomatic immunity in the community, I call it, “Community Immunity”, and that is where they can do no wrong. No one holds them accountable, because all they have to say is god forgive me and it is done. His membership just might increase behind this, and just like all the other sicko pastors, nothing staggers nor wavers the minds of the brainwashed Christian. That’s fucked up, but that’s life and we all get to sit back and watch this foolishess. What type of man puts his hand on his daughter? When your daughter gets to be a certain age, you should not even consider touching them. Now that is for those who believe in corporal punishment. Not child abuse. But a teenage girl should NOT be hit by her father. That is disgusting and he is a worthless piece of shit for doing this. Someone should beat the stench of faith off of him and show him how it feels. I’d do it personally given the chance. Yes I’m a girl, and I’d kick that shit out of that ass. I get so upset writing about this stuff. I bet a bunch of idiots come on this blog and tell me about forgiveness. In advance I’d like to say a solid FUCK YOU. Just to clear the air and let you know, I really don’t give a shit what you think of me or this blog.
For the record, I do not condone abuse or spanking kids. What I am saying is this. If you have a toddler and you spank that child, (within) reason to correct behavior, there should come a time to end that. Your child should have grown and matured enough to understand the difference between negative behaviors. You should also be aware as a parent that hitting your child does not change behavior. It cause resentment and a lack of respect from child to parent. Yes the child may fear you, but that’s not respect. Creflo wants to control everything around him. Bad enough he has an entire entourage of goons that support him and answer to his beckon call, but now he must control the mindset of his children as well? Get over yourself dude. You’re just a human like everyone else. If you were smart, you’d let your children live their lives and think for themselves. If you trust that you’ve done a good job, then you should trust your kids. His character is displayed here. I just hope that they keep an eye out on that address. If this girl had the need to call 911, imagine the fear that she was feeling at the time. And the 19 year old older sister of hers also attested to the events that had taken place? That says something about this nightmare. What daughter would want to call the cops on their famous dad? If you could just imagine how the children in a household like this would feel. So many people revering this non entity Dollar, and yet he is an abusive father. Who will believe these girls? And don’t we think that the bond was too low?
5,000 for choking a kid? That’s all you get these days? Looking at that Mugshot up above sheds more light on something. He isn’t the dapper intellectual that we all see on tv is he? He looks like a criminal in this photo and it suits him just fine.
On another note. I just left a site that actually acted as if they were gonna side with the child. Instead they said. “she hit him first and that he retaliated.” Ummmm, under NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD A MAN EVER EVER LAY A HAND ON A GIRL/WOMAN. Seriously? So basically, this news source is saying that it reports the news, but it condones this father hitting the child. Why? Because girls grow up and I quote, “their hips get wide and their breast get full, so they think they are grown.” Wow, so this is what girls have to deal with? Even if she did hit him first, as if she could really hurt him. He could have restrained or let the mother deal with the girls. Women deal with girls and men deal with their sons when it comes to situations like this. You don’t bully your daughter because you can. So, NewsOne, you got this one wrong. Here is another quote.
“If Creflo had to tackle his daughter to keep her in the house that night, then part of me applauds him. A prominent Father who is willing to risk the humiliation of jail in order to protect his child is the kind of hero that the Black community needs.”
What community? Black community? GTFOH! Let me stop while I can.
But as far as I’m concerned, physical confrontations with a child are not necessarily child abuse.
In a world where Black children are shot every day by one another and by the police, the tough hand of a loving parent might be the only thing that keeps that child out of the morgue. I encourage others to refrain from judging Pastor Dollar’s parenting techniques until the evidence is fully revealed. Also, I wouldn’t be surprised if one day, his daughter thanks him for his sacrifice.
Those two quotes above are given by Dr. Boyce Watkins. So they give those degrees out to anyone I see. Common sense not required I suppose. I can see the daughter one day. “Thanks dad for choking the shit outta me and not trusting me to make my own decisions and choose wisely based on what you’ve taught me.” This Dr is worried about Creflos daughter being the victim of sexual assault if he doesn’t reign her in, but fails to see the physical abuse that she suffered at the hands of her own father.
Pastor Sean Harris…what can be said for this bible toter? Not much. But a lot can be said for his rant. He went on limb as he tried to reach out to his congregation on recent Sunday. His rant involved the actions that the parents of suspected gay children should adhere to. Basically if you suspect that your child is acting “gay” (homosexual) tendencies …that you need to become more aggressive. Here is the actual caption from his sermon.
“So your little son starts to act a little girlish when he is four years old and instead of squashing that like a cockroach and saying, ‘Man up, son, get that dress off you and get outside and dig a ditch, because that is what boys do,’ you get out the camera and you start taking pictures of Johnny acting like a female and then you upload it to YouTube and everybody laughs about it and the next thing you know, this dude, this kid is acting out childhood fantasies that should have been squashed.”
“Can I make it any clearer? Dads, the second you see your son dropping the limp wrist, you walk over there and crack that wrist. Man up. Give him a good punch. Ok? You are not going to act like that. You were made by God to be a male and you are going to be a male.”
Harris has advice for parents who think their daughters might be acting too butch:
“And when your daughter starts acting to Butch you reign her in. And you say, ‘Oh, no, sweetheart. You can play sports. Play them to the glory of God. But sometimes you are going to act like a girl and walk like a girl and talk like a girl and smell like a girl and that means you are going to be beautiful. You are going to be attractive. You are going to dress yourself up.’”
Adds Harris: “Can I take charge like that as a parent? Yeah, you can. You are authorized. I just gave you a special dispensation this morning to do that.”
So, in a nutshell. Do not allow your children to be themselves and if they decide to exercise their rights, alienate them. Also give them a good lashing to keep them in line. My first question. Ummm, are the pastors running out of material to speak on? It seems that way since child abuse is on the list of godly topics. How does the audience respond to this type of teaching?
They all laugh and applaud this man, and that is a loose term. I have no respect for these folks.
Ringheim was said to have molested the child a few years ago. It is now surfaced and after the parents came forth with the story, law enforcement went into action. They decided to have the teen call the perp and strike up a conversation with him. During this recorded conversation Ringheim is reported to have apologized to the minor many times during the call.
Ringheim has no prior charges with the department, however, he may not be a stranger to crime as there are more suspected victims out there who haven’t come forth yet. RingHeim was an acting member in a host of religious day camps, so there would have been plenty of opportunity.
He will face the judge today.
Read the story below…
By Jeff Weiner
A Windermere man was arrested in Orange County on Tuesday evening, charged with sexually molesting a 15-year-old boy.
Edward Ringheim, 39, was arrested about 8:40 p.m. Tuesday and booked into the Orange County Jail without bail. He faces charges of lewd and lascivious molestation of a child between 12 and 15 years of age, according to an arrest affidavit.
Orange County deputies began investigating Ringheim on March 7, when they were called to the teen boy’s home by his mother. The boy told investigators that Ringheim, described in charging documents as a “family friend,” molested him on four separate occasions when he was 12 years old.
According to sheriff’s documents, the boy described in graphic detail the four alleged sexual encounters, which he said occurred at Ringheim’s house, in Ringheim’s pickup truck, at a house in New Smyrna Beach and at the victim’s home.
Investigators set up a supervised phone call with the victim and Ringheim, during which deputies say Ringheim apologized to the victim several times.
According to the affidavit, Ringheim told the boy that he “means the world” to him and he “hated that he abused that friendship.”
Ringheim went on to tell the boy that he was going to New Orleans for counseling, and was “trying to figure out why he had these feelings,” investigators said. In the call, deputies said Ringheim acknowledged specific details about the encounters.
When the teen asked Ringheim if he was sorry for touching him, investigators say Ringheim responded, “Definitely, definitely, it was something that I didn’t want to happen; it was never my goal or intention.”
Deputies said Ringheim also told the boy that there was another victim, though he didn’t give a name. The boy’s mother told investigators that she was concerned there could be other victims because Ringheim “has had a long presence with several churches’ youth programs.”
According to arresting documents, the Windermere Police Department was already investigating Ringheim when Orange County investigators got involved. He does not have an arrest history in Orange County, and is not listed in state corrections records.
He is being held in the Orange County Jail on no bail. He is facing 5 counts of Lewd and Lacivious Acts on a minor age 12-15.
Reports are in that Ringheim is now accused of molesting a third child. He is now facing 8 felony counts. Basically what that means, a third child has come forth and named Ringheim as one who molested him.
