It is not HIS church! The people who have attended there and paid money into the church is who it belongs to! Just because a pastor is at a church does not mean it belongs to him! If this man left his house to the church then it was meant for the church not Mr. Price. If he had wanted it to be Mr. Prices house then he would have left it to him in his name only. He may have to sell this house that his girlfriend is living in to pay his attorney fees and such. wouldnt that be hilarious! She might have to get a real job.

wow i struck a nerve there huh! And it's not John's church he just thinks everybody owes him something. Who does he think he is taking what belongs to the church.He's never worked a hard days work in all his life. He has just sit around and took off the church I even think the church paid his insurance and he just kept gettin speeding tickets guess it didn't matter since the church people were paying for it. Temple was really good to him and believed all his bull he should have to pay the church back for all he has taken from them.I have had to deal with mr.Price and he is not truthful and Karie his daughter used to talk terriable about the church members like the Scott's and the Clark's and lots of other members who went there. This is not a family to get involved with they burn you every time.

Well if people are dumb enough to believe lies that these people tell then they need serious help. Anyone should be able to see right through them! I don't understand a daughter like karie upholding her dad when she has to know what he did. She should have more respect for her mother than that. Even if she doesn't believe this, she has to know some of the other stuff that this man has done! He is guilty of so much stuff, this is just a chip of the iceberg. I hope him and his daughters and that ho have to get a real job in a tobacco patch and work them big ole fat asses off.

She knows it all ! Daddy pays her way through life! She would sell her mother soul for a dollar, she is just like John don't be fooled !! She knew about all of it!! I hope she also get caught in this web and loses her children because she isn't fit to raise kids! She is so stupid to think that if Linda goes to jail she will get Whittney! You are a fool ! Her father and his family will get her! Just watch!! Before its over all of them will hang each other!!

I've heard alot of not so good things about her like how she treats her mother in law she has never been good to her moth er in law.Always telling tells Mrs.Fields is one of the sweetest ladies i just don't see how Karie's husband stands by and lets her treat his mother that way.someone that went to church there said she wouldnt even go visit them and w hen her father in law passed away she cried over his coffin and made a big scene.tried to make people believe she actually cared.And all that time wouldn't even sop by and check on them

That is true about the mother in law. Karies husband dont even check on her or call her and thats his mother. But he sure has time to see his father in law. Guess he thinks he knows what side his bread is buttered on. It must be hard to have your child show more caring and love to someone like that than his pwn mother.

He's probably not allowed that how John and his crew work! They separate family's so they can control their environment ! The stupid people that allow this don't realize this repeats itself and that they're next! Look at her first x he got away as fast as he could!!!!

Carrie sent a letter to the girls stepmother saying that she took a child
In that didn't belong to the man that she was suppose to belong to! Well that said a lot for Linda didn't it ! She has screwed around her whole life and the joke of it all is that she is supposed to belong to a man at the church that she had an affair with years ago! Either way her dad and his family love her and will support her thru this! And just so Linda knows David wouldn't pour water on you if you were on fire ! The family truly hates you for what you did to these girls! Death is too go for you!!
