Word of the Week: Creflo

Creflo (v): To extract money from the gullible. The word is the first name of an American evangelist preacher, who tells his flock that God wants them to be rich. Needless to say, he relentlessly hits them up for donations and sells them a lot of inspirational products. Well, it makes him rich anyway. You can read more about this gentlemen in Blasphemy for the Day: Religion and Political Belief. All I want to add here is that his full name is Creflo A. Dollar – how could I resist the neologism?
