Correct, Talbott's race does not matter. What matters is that both Talbott and his wife were treated like family. Bishop would say, "With God and Todd I am alright"! Talbott needs to reflect upon the love and care giving to him by West Angeles and Bishop's entire family. Can you imagine taking someone into your home only to have them attempt to hurt you? Think about this whole thing. It is not right. We have been members of West Angeles for over 25 years and can say without a doubt that Bishop is a very humble and loving servant of the people. We do not understand why Todd would contact this newspaper at this time unless his intentions were to hurt and harm. Why remove documents from the accounting department when you work in a totally different department if you did not have vengence in your heart?? You and I have free will to give Bishop whatever God moves us to give during his annual anniversary services. Did anyone consider it a breech of confidentiality to take copies of your company or non-profits records without permission?? Talbott is not being trashed, he made statements in public and became a public figure on his own. Talbott's public criticisim of Blake opens him up to the rest of us to defend Bishop and share both sides of the story.
You need to check your sources regarding Bishop Blake's character and fiscal acumen. Your source was a joke of an employee, a gossiper, seeking to make a quick buck! He quit Save Africa's Children on his own! He did not give notice, he just walked out after he obviously stole the payroll ledger. Bishop Blake has sacraficed for the work of the Church for over 50 years. The majority of his congregation is very successful! We trust Bishop unlike others who drive around flaunting wealth. Bishop lived in the same home for many years and enjoys the benefits of home equity (a profit) on real estate to leverage to move up like everybody else who bought their homes in the 70s and beneftitted from double-digit increases over many years. He has the right to buy low and sale high and place a down payment on property in a nice area when the market was really low more than five years ago. Todd Talbott is a bitter WHITE MAN with no prospects for a job in the future, looking to make a quick buck!! Bishop took both Todd and his wife into his family and treated them as GOLD!! For Todd to turnaround and plant this article with your newspaper the week of elections is downright dirty, low-class and indicative of someone who lacks integrity, character and the ability to accept responsibility for the fact he was a very poor employee. And That's the Facts!!!
