From Clutch Magazine:
"I don't know what it is with the church. When you have a wreck, you expect for God to forgive you and everyone else. Don't let the preacher have a wreck, now. Then you become self-righteous and you become judgmental and you're gonna leave the preacher for his wreck, when you done had more wrecks. That preacher's still anointed to do what he was called to do. He just had a wreck. The blood will take care of his issue, just like it will take care of yours. And I just can't believe that people would leave their preacher cause he had a wreck, instead of praying for him." ~ Creflo Dollar, Pastor of World Changers Church International
It's unfortunate to watch a historic institution slip by the wayside and disintegrate into an embarrassment. From the million dollar homes, cars, and yachts pimped off the wallets of black women to the blatant moral corruption, it's about time that the black community say "enough" to Bishop Eddie Long and Creflo Dollar. It's incendiary that four young men allegedly had their childhoods ruptured by Long's sexual abuse and Dollar audaciously declares the incident as a simple "wreck."
While we'll never know if Long would've been declared innocent or guilty in a court of law, simple logic concludes that an innocent minister wouldn't fork out a multi-million dollar settlement on the backs of his congregants. He would fight to clear his name and the dignity of his church. But clearly, it's easier to shame people into supporting a minister after a sex scandal.
