LOL! Black Bishop Paying White People to Come to Church

Fred Caldwell, Bishop of Greenwood Acres Full Gospel Baptist Church in Shreveport, Louisiana, is paying white people to attend his church; $5 on Sundays, $10 on Thursdays, when it "it might take a little bit more extra effort" to make it to a service due to work commitments.

CNN reports that Caldwell is hoping to diversify his 99.9% black congregation with these measures. And though it's already stirring up controversy, Caldwell thinks it's not a bad deal for a hour's worth of worship:

"$10 an hour is not bad. It's probably better than maybe McDonald's or Burger Kings would pay."
