The Universal Church Kingdom of God is an organization based in Brazil and led by tycoon Edir Macedo. It has branches around the world including the United States.

The church reportedly takes in more than $1 billion dollars annually.

Macedo has diversified investments in South America, which include a media empire with holdings in television, print news and radio.

But the cash cow of the Macedo Empire seems to still be his church, which manipulates superstition for money. It promotes a belief in amulets and holy oil and conducts public exorcisms.

Such supernatural products and spectacle have attracted a following ultimately produce income through contributions.

Now a new branch of the church in Britain is marketing its ability at “breaking curses,” reports the Waltham Forest Guardian.

Promotional literature says, “This breaking curses method has been used for many years and has proved to be highly successful especially in the lives of those who have tried every other method and failed.”

Of course once your curse is broken you should be grateful and give the church money.

In addition to this unusual pitch regarding supernatural power church members are also working the more traditional mode of fund raising throughout a British neighborhood soliciting contributions. One reporter said he was approached “six times.”

The Universal Church Kingdom of God is currently under investigation by the UK Charity Commission, over child protection issues related to “exorcism” and money distribution.

Macedo has previously been accused of criminal activities in South America including money laundering.
