BS25-I couldn't agree with you more. Some of you sound VERY ignorant. Just leave the man alone. Do you give him any money? So why are you so concerned with his and how he spends it? We spend more time tearing each other down, then building each other up. Could it be jealousy? Not sure, but COGIC (born and raised in it) does a lot for the community, and abroad. Is it perfect? Of course NOT! But are we perfect? Of Course not! But has anyone mentioned the 100 year celebration? No. Has anyone mentioned how this man (Bishop Mason) was able to start an organization in a time where African Americans were not even seen as human beings? No! And it has grown to well over 50 mill, and still growing..Nobdy is mentioning that, we're just caught up in the money Blaske is making what COGIS is doing with it's money. If you aren't in COGIC, and you aren't giving any money, why are you so concerned...I guess, I'm just a little confused. And like BS25 said, please move it out of Memphis. I will GLADLY go somewhere else. Yes, it's our mecca, but if we're not wanted, it's not that serious. Sign those petitions, get us out of there. The faster you do, the faster we'll be gone. Be blessed!
