    Bishop Bobby Davis, who was a pastor of the Miracle Faith World Outreach Church in Bridgeport, asked churchgoers to stay after service service Sunday and confessed to his parishioners that he had committed adultery.

    According to the Connecticut Post, a member of the church told the paper that Bishop Davis admitted to having an extra-marital affair with hopes of asking forgiveness from his parishioners. The crowd responded with mixed reactions and he reportedly suffered a fatal heart attack moments after.

    “After the service on Sunday, the bishop’s family asked us to remain in the church and the bishop confessed to us something that happened long ago,” churchgoer Judy Stovall told the newspaper. “He wanted to come clean with all of us. He wanted to ask our forgiveness.”

    “We were shouting, `We forgive you, we love you,’ but the stress of all of it — he had a heart attack,” Stovall added. “I held his head as he lay on the floor … Our congregation is hurting now.”

    Thanks for starting this Thread, I knew someone would:

    http://destee.com/index.php?threads...has-congregation-eat-grass.79823/#post-864857


    "Probably would be better to start a new thread for that.
    Not sure how that ties in to this one."

    Think in the reverse elder, it could very well have not been some "really good stuff" hence the heart attack ...
