The Panorama of Black Preachers in Trouble

There is a long history of black church leaders who have found themselves in the middle of controversy, from Creflo Dollar to Jeremiah Wright.


Think Bishop Long is an aberration? Not really, according to the The Atlanta Post. The site lists 10 black church leaders who have found themselves in the uncomfortable spotlight of publicity. Is it something about the high altitude on the pulpit? We suggest that some preachers get back on the floor with their congregants and learn how to spell H-U-M-I-L-I-T-Y.
