I'm concerned about Pastor Dollar's two daughters. This is the guy who's been

charged with choking his 15 year old daughter and hitting her with his shoe. He says he only wrestled her to the ground and spanked her.



In a case like this, do they just send the allegedly abusive parent back home to live with the children?

The story also mentions that the 19 year old at first confirmed her sister's story to the investigator, but changed it when her parents were there; and then changed it back to the original version (confirming the abuse) when she was separated from her parents.

Around 1 a.m. Friday, his 15-year-old daughter called 911. She told a Fayette County sheriff's deputy that she and her father argued when he said she couldn't go to a party Saturday night, according to the report.

She went into the kitchen with her older sister. When her father asked why she was crying, she told him, "I do not want to talk right now," the report said.

Her father charged at her, put his hands around her throat, began to punch her and started hitting her with his shoe, she told the deputy. The deputy noted a scratch on her neck.

Dollar told the deputy he wouldn't let his daughter go to the party because of poor grades.

The deputy also interviewed Dollar's 19-year-old daughter, who said her father grabbed the younger girl's shoulders and slapped her in the face and choked her for about five seconds. She said her sister tried to break free, but did not fight back. When her father threw the 15-year-old on the floor, the older girl ran to get her mother.

1. Only?

In my book wrestling a fifteen-year-old to the ground and spanking her IS child abuse, and he's just admitted to it.

2. I agree. Unfortunately, the pastor has 30,000 followers

who are cheering him on.

http://www.cnn.com/2012/06/10/living/prosperity-gospel/index.html

Atlanta (CNN) -- The arrest of Georgia megachurch pastor Creflo Dollar brought renewed attention to his message of the Prosperity Gospel, controversial to some and faith-fulfilling to its followers.

Dollar, who was arrested last week after allegedly assaulting his teenage daughter, is the founder and pastor of World Changers Church International in suburban Atlanta.

It claims about 30,000 members and has a multimillion-dollar sanctuary that resembles a golden-domed spaceship atop a hill.

Dollar said in a statement he would never harm his children and that the facts in the case would be handled privately.

3. Some quotes:

Dollar blamed the devil for causing the controversy, saying that to discredit his message of "prosperity gospel," the enemy must discredit the messenger.


The standard excuse these televangelists use when they are caught doing something illegal.

He cited a Bible verse from Psalms that talks about malicious witness against the good man, and evil men delighting when he stumbled.

He later, during his sermon, also joked about the arrest, saying that being a religious man sent to jail "upped my resume."

"Paul ... Jesus ... and Creflo," he said to a huge cheer.


Yes, he's so like Jesus - NOT.

6. This incident just feeds into the persecution complex that nearly ALL

overly zealous religious people tend to develope. Please note that I said ALL overly zealous religious people to include all other Protestants, Catholics, Muslims, Mormons, etc.........

8. It's disgusting that those followers are not only willing to disbelieve the victim,

but the 19 year old sister who supported her story.

Of course, the whole Christian prosperity doctrine is disgusting -- that if you're rich, it's because you're especially close to God.

13. That sounds like the premise of a book that was very popular a few years ago called

"The Secret". The whole book was based on the "fact" that people somehow "deserve" the bad things that happen to them while "good" people somehow flourish!

9. why'd he get so mad? She wasn't going to the party, just crying because upset

teen girls cry. No need to choke her for it.

10. People with personality disorders, which I'm just guessing he has (based on his behavior),

often erupt over seemingly trivial things. According to reports, he asked her why she was crying and when she said she didn't want to talk about it (probably knowing that he'd just get mad), he erupted.

This creep has 30,000 followers. Unfortunately, people with personality disorders can also be very charming, when they choose to be, especially with outsiders.

(For example, he certainly appears narcissistic here:

He later, during his sermon, also joked about the arrest, saying that being a religious man sent to jail "upped my resume."

"Paul ... Jesus ... and Creflo," he said to a huge cheer.)

11. i believe he did abuse the girl , watching him blaming the devil, saying the markings

on his daughter were eczema or some other skin condition makes me sick.

lets say he really was innocent. what kind of a parent would go out in public like that and talk like that ? wouldn't you keep it private for a while or at least help your daughter get help.

12. I believe the 2 daughters. Unfortunately, he was allowed to go back home with them,

so they'll probably change their minds about their testimony.
