    Members of the Greenwood Acres Full Gospel Baptist Church in Shreveport, Louisiana worship for three times every Sunday, and once on Thursday night. Spirits are lifted and a shout of "hallelujah!" can be heard. However, some will leave church next month with more than a spiritual blessing. Some will leave the church service with a little money in their pocket...

    That is the plan by Bishop Fred pay white people to join in on his all-Black congregation.

    During the month of August, Caldwell plans to pay $5 per hour for Sunday services and $10 per hour for the church's Thursday service.

    "Our churches are too segregated, and the Lord never intended for that to happen. It's time for something radical," the Bishop said at a Sunday service.

    Caldwell is expected to pay the sum of money from his own pockets. However, church members have vowed to help out if the minister's funds run a little low...

    This has to be the DUMBEST THING I HAVE EVER HEARD. It's sad to see some "NEGROES" actuallly doing this.

    Why doesn't the Pastor take that energy and use it to help the black community?

    a church that isnt divinely inspired. imagine that.

    this has got to be the dumbest and most anti-God like thing a person can do. pay somebody to join a congregation? pay white people to join a white church? pay by the hour? help someone pay if they run out of money?

    the black church has been devoid of good common sense since the late 60s. this is more of a confirmation, not a surprise.
