has asked his congregation to give damn near $250,000 to the family of the dude that was shot and killed at his church.
Now helping out the man's family is what the church should be doing, but when the Pastor of the church lives in MULTIMILLION DOLLAR mansion which has solid gold fixtures in the master bathroom, has his own Private Jet and drives a Rolls Royce to Sunday Service; then in my opinion $250,000 should be a drop in the bucket to him.
Now I admit that I don't know how much of his own money he is going to throw in the pot. But for a multimillionaire to ask people that work for a living to come off that kind of scratch; people who probably have to work 6 or 7 years to make $250,000; people who probably are living from check to check..this is that bullshit son.
This man can donate the whole kit and caboodle his damn self.
Hell, he will get that money back in 3 months from the offerings that his followers dole out every Sunday.
I understand that the gesture is a good one, but leaders lead from the front, not the rear.
This dude should be the first one to write out a check. He should tell his congregation that he will put up the whole amount and then if members can donate what they can, then donate. But for this dude to say outright "I want $250,000 from y'all as soon as possible"?
And I bet he will have the money before the week is out.
While Sister Johnson and Brother Williams lights are going to be cut off. And Sister Bernice has to go the to food bank to feed her 3 kids, after she gets off from her 2nd job of the day.
Black Folks and thier Preachers. Hell, being a preacher in a Black Church has got to feel like being the King of England.
This is that straight baby back bullshit.
