From listening to his speech of Sunday morning to his congregation, I observed and quietly kept my thoughts to myself, but if these allegations turn out to be true.

All the baby Christians will be shaken and rocked by this and will eventually blame everyone for this. They will use this as an excuse of why they don’t like going to church and etc…!!!!
Wooof. I could go on and on, but i have class!
