First a Pastor Frank Ray is accused of trying to run over his wife with his Bentley, then Pastor Creflo Dollar is arrested for Domestic abuse with his daughter. What’s your take on these actions Pastors are making? Is the church really falling?
A Memphis, Tennessee pastor has been accused of trying to run over his wife with his Bentley. Pastor Frank Ray’s wife, Deborah, filed a report in which she accused Ray of using his Bentley in an intimidating manner to run her down in the driveway. The New Salem Missionary Baptist Church pastor filed for divorce in March 2012, a few months after a fight broke out between several women inside the sanctuary involving his wife. WMC-TV has the story. A Mid-South minister was accused of trying to run over his wife and now he is sharing his side of the story. With a congregation of more than 5,000 members, New Salem Missionary Baptist Church Pastor Frank Ray says the sanctity of marriage is still at the heart of his ministry. “It’s one of the most wonderful things that could ever happen to a person in life,” said Pastor Frank Ray. But his seven year marriage to his latest wife, Deborah, has been on the road to destruction.
FAYETTEVILLE, Ga. — Megachurch pastor Creflo Dollar has been arrested after authorities say he slightly hurt his 15-year-old daughter in a fight at his metro Atlanta home. Fayette County Sheriff’s Office investigator Brent Rowan says deputies responded to a call of domestic violence at the home around 1 a.m. Friday.
Rowan says the 50-year-old pastor and his daughter were arguing over whether she could go to a party when Dollar “got physical” with her, leaving her with “superficial injuries.” Dollar faces misdemeanor charges of simple battery and cruelty to children. He bonded out of Fayette County jail Friday morning. Dollar’s lawyer Nikki Bonner said he’s gathering information on the case and had no comment. Dollar is the pastor for World Changers Church International in College Park. A spokeswoman for the church did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
