Popular televangelist Creflo Dollar is being called on the carpet again for his “prosperity gospel” which teaches that God brings riches to the faithful. Iowa Sen. Charles Grassley, the top Republican on the Senate Finance Committee, is asking whether or not churches such as the one run by Creflo Dollar and his wife Taffi really are non-profits. Dollar is just one of the televangelists asked to provide financial information to the committee.
In an interview with CBS News, Dollar addressed the widely reported claim that he has two Rolls-Royces. Dollar says he only has one Rolls-Royce and that one was purchased by donors or members of the church and that it was a surprise to him. This is not the first time Dollar has had to address the Rolls issue, nor is it the first time he has used this answer. In fact, a quick search brings up a Businessweek interview in 2005 where Dollar said the church congregation gave him the Rolls-Royce saying that they wanted him to drive the best and that he felt to turn it down would be a “a dishonor to the people that gave it to me.”
