Yep, you guessed it.

I'm not going to re-write this one.  Hemant Mehta nailed it.

Christian Pastor Gets Arrested for Beating Daughter… 

I ask that same question over and over and over....

Edited to add:  This, from the CNN article about the incident.
Dollar is a senior pastor of World Changers Church International in suburban Atlanta, which claims about 30,000 members and has an $18 million sanctuary that resembles a golden-domed spaceship atop a hill. 
He built an international religious empire, with broadcasts of his sermons beamed worldwide and speaking engagements in Europe. 
A barrel-chested man who favors impeccably tailored pinstripe suits in the pulpit, Dollar preaches the Prosperity Gospel, a message that says God will bless faithful Christians with wealth and debt-free living.
Which has nothing to do with Christians supporting and encouraging child abuse.  But it does relate to this.

Matthew 19:24
And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
Why is this so difficult?  Why?
