The reason Trump and evangelists get along so well is that both parties are in the business of conning people out of their hard-earned money by any means necessary. Look no further than the World of Faith Fellowship (WFF) evangelical church in North Carolina as a prime example.
The WFF is no stranger to scandals. The so-called church is currently under investigation for importing Brazilian Christians to work on their land as quasi-slaves.
A separate WFF controversy involves the beating of a homosexual man by a group of parishioners who wanted to “expel his demons.”
According to the Associated Press, the latest WFF scheme involves chicanery designed to earn extra capital for the church. The leaders of the church were caught assisting parishioners to commit unemployment fraud to ensure the stream of money landing in the donation basket didn’t run dry. The church reportedly told the people they deceived that committing the crime was “God’s plan.”
One of the victims, Randy Fields, told the church’s founder, Jane Whaley, that he intended to donate less due to his struggling business. Instead of accepting his offer, Whaley instructed him to file unemployment claims under the names of his employees.
The North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security are both investigating the church after they allegedly robbed hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars.
