Maranatha Christian Church , a Pentecostal organization serving Brazilians in the United States, says it's just not true it's shipping money to its parent organization in Brazil to buy convertible Lamborghinis for church leaders.
In a lawsuit filed yesterday in US District Court in Boston, the New Jersey-based organization - which has local churches in Everett, Framingham and Marlboro, accused broadcaster Beto Moraes  of libel for making a series of such allegations about the use of donations by church members. The suit also names the owners of WLYN, who sell air time to Moraes.
The suit charges Moraes is making up his accusations of fraud against the church. In November, leaders of the church in Brazil were barred from their own offices  as part of a government investigation into possible fraud related to church donations (article is in Portuguese).
