It's just the way of the world currently that no black man can be made to do anything he doesn't wish to. Mayor "Kwame" has the gall to solicit contributions from his constituents to cover what he stole from them, and no one dares to 'call' him on it. By comparison this man is practically a saint. Look up the term "McCarthy-ism". It's very similar to todays situation.

If the UCC has defrocked this man due to misconduct, then he should step down from his post immediately out of respect for God, the UCC, his church and his parishioners. The fact that he is arrogant enough to stay on speaks volumes.

As a UCC member I am deeply embarassed by his behavior but pleased that the church has defrocked him. Now it is time for his church in Newport News to take action and get him out of there. If he feels that he has been wronged then he should still step down and take matters up with the church's hierarchy, until the matter is resolved.

$80,000 per year and getting some side action? But he's still holding his bible preaching the word while he's getting his side action and robbing the collection plate.

You pay taxes call the police and get him out...this is not good...for the people,the community,nor the church family. Now if he is a man of God as he has claimed...he needs to move on and let His house go about doing what it needs to. I will continue to pray for the church family for you all need to be a family in His house.
