Production Halted on Meriam Ibrahim Movie, Starring Stacey Dash, After Couple Complains

Meriam Ibrahim Movie

MERIAM IBRAHIM MOVIE:  Stacey Dash fans may be saddened to learn that production for the film entitled, “I Am a Christian,” in which she was slated to star as Meriam Ibrahim, the Sudanese woman charged with apostasy over her Christian faith, has been halted.

The campaign was scrapped after Ibraheem and her husband, Daniel Wani, came forward to publicly denounce the film, because they had not given Christian Lives Matter, LLC, the newly-formed company responsible for “I Am A Christian,” rights to tell their story. The couple in fact only learned Tuesday through news reports that the project was being pursued without their permission.

“It’s terrible. … It’s not right,” Wani told CP over the phone Wednesday. He expressed concern about filmmakers attempting to tell his family’s dramatic story of persecution based solely on media reports and without his and Ibraheem’s first-person accounts. Source: Christian Post

Pastor Creflo Dollar Launches Campaign for $65 Million Private Jet

PROJECT G650:  Atlanta megachurch pastor Creflo Dollar has launched a campaign for a new Gulfstream G650 private jet, reportedly worth $65 million.  Yes, the cost is correct. He wants 200,000 people to donate $300 each so he can buy this jet. Um, negro please!

I guess flying around in his old jet is so 2014 and since he’s such an important public figure, he needs to literally squeeze blood from a rock to get his congregants and any other fools to satisfy his material needs.

The word is Dollar was traveling on his old jet when it experienced engine failure. The pilot was able to safely land the plane without anyone sustaining injuries. But since the experience was so frightening, God spoke to Dollar and laid on his heart to launch a campaign for a multi-million plane. Of course, I am being facetious.

In case you’re wondering, here’s what the Gulfstream G650 looks like:

Creflo Dollar's dream plane -- Gulfstream G650

Here’s an excerpt of Creflo Dollar’s plea:

“Due to this recent incident coupled with the 31 years the airplane has been in service, we believe it is time to replace this aircraft so that our Pastors and staff can continue to safely and swiftly share the Good News of the Gospel worldwide. Believe it or not, there are still millions of people on this planet who have never heard of Jesus Christ and know nothing of His greatness. Our hearts desire to see precious lives changed and snatched out of darkness and thrust into His marvelous light! We need your help to continue reaching a lost and dying world for the Lord Jesus Christ.”

We are asking members, partners, and supporters of this ministry to assist in the undertaking of an initiative called Project G650. The mission of Project G650 is to acquire a Gulfstream G650 airplane so that Pastors Creflo and Taffi and World Changers Church International can continue to blanket the globe with the Gospel of grace. We are believing for 200,000 people to give contributions of 300 US dollars or more to turn this dream into a reality—and allow us to retire the aircraft that served us well for many years.

Atlanta Blackstar reports Dollar is worth an estimated $27 million dollars. Um, that’s way more than the people in his church are worth. I didn’t realize he was on the same level as world leaders and other VIPs. Why can’t be buy this jet himself? I pity the fools who fall for this latest scam.

Pastor Jamal Bryant Criticizes Tom Joyner for Slamming His “Hoes” Sermon

Pastor Jamal Bryant Criticizes Tom Joyner for Slamming His “Hoes” Sermon

(OPINION) — Pastor Jamal Bryant criticized radio show host Tom Joyner for slamming his “hoes ain’t loyal” sermon that sparked outrage. Bryant claims that a snippet went viral and people didn’t listen to his entire sermon before passing judgment. Still, why would he step in that muck considering his own failings as a husband? His infidelity almost led to the destruction of his ministry. He said people who didn’t see the entire message will come away with a different interpretation.

Bryant talked about how black men were turning their backs on the black women that God sent time in favor of less godly women.

“Every sister elbow another sister and say, ‘He should have listened.’ Every brother tap another brother and say, ‘I should have listened to her,’” with “her” being the hypothetical cheater’s wife. “Old saints, y’all forgive me, but I gotta tell you. These hoes ain’t loyal!”

Really? Hoes ain’t loyal?

The fact is, I blame the members of his church who turned a blind eye to his infidelities and accepted him with open arms, no questions asked. I also blame them for allowing him to speak to them using such language. Chris Brown shouldn’t be emulated by anyone of any level of moral standing, much less to use words from his songs as a basis for a sermon. Jesus didn’t call Mary Magdalene a ‘hoe.’ He didn’t denigrate the people he came to minister to. So, why should we expect any less from Pastor Jamal Bryant?

Criticizing Tom Joyner and his co-hosts is hardly a way to take responsibility for a bad choice of words. Jamal Bryant has as much credibility as Eddie L. Long and Creflo Dollar. All are in it for the MONEY. Pimps in the pulpit.

Pastor John Hagee: “Blood Moon” Eclipse Signals End of World

Pastor John Hagee: “Blood Moon” Eclipse Signals End of World

Right wing evangelical Pastor John Hagee warned members of his Cornerstone megachurch in Texas, that the “blood moon” eclipse signals the end of the world.

On Tuesday, the  first of four complete lunar eclipses, called a tetrad, occurred. The eclipses are often referred to as “blood moons” because the moon gets a red color as the sunlight shines on it through the Earth’s atmosphere.

Hagee, pastor of Texas’ Cornerstone Church, has written a book on the phenomenon titled Blood Moons: Something is About to Change. And he is airing a live television event on Tuesday to reveal “direct connections between four upcoming blood-moon eclipses and what they portend for Israel and all of humankind.”

“Is this the end of the age?” Hagee asked during a recent sermon, before quoting Acts 2:19-20: And I will show wonders in Heaven above and signs in the Earth beneath, the sun shall be turned into darkness and the moon into blood before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord.”

“I believe that the heavens are God’s billboard, that he has been sending signals to planet Earth,” he explained. “God is literally screaming at the world, ‘I’m coming soon.’”

Hagee predicted that the four eclipses were signaling a “world-shaking event that will happen between April 2014 and October 2015.”

“God sends plant Earth a signal that something big is about to happen! He’s controlling the Sun and the moon right now to send our generation a signal, but the question is, are we getting it?” Source: Raw Story

Um, but didn’t the Bible also say we won’t know the time of the end of the world? More lunacy from the evangelicals….

Florida Megachurch Pastor Bob Coy Resigns Amid Cheating Accusations

Florida megachurch pastor Bob Coy, 58, resigned over “moral failing.” Coy, who led Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale, which has over 20,000 members,  allegedly had multiple affairs and was addicted to pornography.

The church elders released a statement on Sunday, saying that Bob Coy resigned as senior pastor “after confessing to a moral failing in his life which disqualifies him from continuing his leadership role.”

The church also suspended Coy’s Active Word ministry on radio, television and digital media. The Sun-Sentinel reports congregant Robert Milne said, “A lot of people were hurt, a lot of people are disappointed.”

Blogger Michael Newnham wrote that they have confirmation that Coy has admitted to at least two affairs in the past year alone and has had a long standing “problem with pornography. The church did not elaborate on what Coy’s moral failings were.

Bob Coy founded Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale in 1985 with his wife Diane.  Another one bites the dust…..

Pastor Mase’s Congregation Threatens to Stop Funding Church Over Lifestyle

Pastor Mase’s Congregation Threatens to Stop Funding Church Over Lifestyle

Rapper-turned-pastor Mase, whose real name is Mason Betha, is being put on blast by his congregation  at El Elyon Church, for his hypocritical lifestyle–professing undying love for wife, Twyla Betha, while quietly filing for divorce.

TMZ reports:  Pastor/rapper Mase is a fake who has committed blasphemy by using the holiness of the church to advance his very unholy rap agenda … so claim many of the worshipers at his house of worship.

Some of the worshipers tell TMZ … they believe Mase is living a double life, spending as much time in the studio with hardcore rappers as in the church. And they say his messages from the pulpit drip in hypocrisy, because what he raps about is exactly the opposite.

One of the things that set parishioners off … the TMZ story that Mase — who built both his church and his fortune on his marriage — secretly filed for divorce in January and then withdrew the legal docs a few weeks later.

Some of the parishioners tell us Mase has been going on and on about the virtues of marriage even after the TMZ post, never addressing his own failures … and they’re fed up.

There’s talk now about refusing to fund the church … that’s how bad things have become.

And something new to piss off worshipers … Mase is featured on a new song — “Tricky Situation” — about a man who brags about banging a woman who’s already engaged.

Glad to see that the members of El Elyon are standing up and saying enough is enough to this bullshiggedy.

Report: $600K in Donations Stolen from Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church

Report: $600K in Donations Stolen from Joel Osteen's Lakewood Church

Report: $600K in Donations Stolen from Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church

Lakewood Church, where Joel Osteen serves as senior pastor, sent out a notice on Monday that limited donations, totaling $600,000, collected at services on Saturday and Sunday, were stolen. Um, that’s two days worth of collections. The church advised anyone who had given their donation by check or credit card to monitor their bank accounts and report any suspicious activity.

Here’s the email Lakewood Church sent out to members:

“We were heartbroken to learn today that funds were stolen from the church over the weekend. This includes cash, checks and envelopes containing written credit card information, and it is limited only to those funds contributed in the church services on Saturday, March 8 and Sunday, March 9, 2014. If you made a contribution during these weekend services, we would encourage you to pay close attention to your accounts over the next several days and weeks and report any suspicious activity to your financial institution or credit card company immediately.

It is important to note this was not an electronic data breach, but was instead limited to donations made in the services on March 8 and 9, 2014. You were not affected if you put your offering in a drop box, you gave online or through other electronic means, or you made a bookstore purchase. We are working with the police to fully investigate the incident. The funds were fully insured, and we are working with our insurance company to restore the stolen funds to the church.

If you have any questions about this matter, please contact our Customer Service Department at 713-491-1506. The integrity of our congregants’ information is of utmost importance to us. And, we would like to thank you for your continued support.”

Listen:

The church won’t be out those funds, since insurance will cover the loss. But now you know why Joel and Victoria Osteen are always smiling….#IJS
