Creflo Dollar Proclaims Innocence in Sunday Sermon

by at . Comments

Creflo Dollar made his first public remarks since being arrested last week for alleged assault against his daughter, denying all allegations yesterday during his Sunday sermon in College Park, Georgia.

"I will say this emphatically: I should have never been arrested," Dollar said two days after police charged him with misdemeanor counts of simple battery and cruelty to children. "I want you all to hear personally from me that all is well in the Dollar household."

The controversial televangelist spoke to a congregation that met him with multiple rounds of enthusiastic applause.

Dollar was arrested Friday after his 15-year old daughter called 911 around 1 a.m. and said her father wrapped his arms around her neck, punched her and hit her with his shoe after the two got into a fight over her request to attend a party. Dollar's 19-year old daughter backs up this account.

But Dollar took to his pulpit proudly yesterday, admitted "emotions got involved and things escalated from there," in related to the charges and added:

"The truth is she was not choked, she was not punched. There were not any scratches on her neck. But the only thing on her neck was a prior skin abrasion from eczema. Anything else is exaggeration and sensationalism."

Dollar said he does not place any fault on any of his children ("as Jesus would never put any fault on me"), but did touch on a "culture of disrespect" among today's youth, a reference that was met with cries if support from those in attendance.

"I think you're looking at a bunch of sensationalism," said George Blake, 49, a regular member of Dollar's congregation. "It's not up to me to me to be satisfied with what he had to say. This is a man of God spreading the word of God."

Evil man with no shame or remorse. "skin abrasion from eczema". Please! And the 19 year old would lie why? Abusive and a false prophet. The Bible warns us of this kind of "pharisees".

If he did I don't think its wrong, I would have done the same. And I don't there is any part in the bible that says you can't beat your child.
