Holy Crap: Drop Dead Edition

March 14, 2014 By: Juanita Jean Category: Uncategorized

It seems that the congregation of the Miracle Faith Worldwide Outreach Church in Bridgeport, Connecticut, confronted their Bishop about some little sparkin’ he was doing on the side.

And his response? He showed them. He dropped dead. Apparently of natural causes.

“After the service on Sunday the bishop’s family asked us to remain in the church and the bishop confessed to us something that happened long ago,” said Judy Stovall, an elder at the church. “He wanted to come clean with all of us. He wanted to ask our forgiveness.”

Their story is that they were shouting that they forgave him and loved him. That’s what they’re saying now.

The police closed the investigation because God works in mysterious ways.

Thanks to Brian for the heads up.

    Wonder what he had to confess. I admit I’ve done stuff I’m not proud of,but nothing I can be hung for and I ain’t keeled over,yet. Someone must have been rill naughty. Bwaaahaaahaaa!

  2. Before reading about this, I thought a bishop was part of the apostolic succession, or a member of an episcopacy, or both. I didn’t quite understand how one could become the bishop of an independent non-denominational church one had founded oneself. So I learned a little more about the wider use of this term.

    For anyone interested, here’s a link to an interesting article from 1999 about the deceased bishop and his ministry:

    … and yet Pat Robertson still slithers among us.

  4. UPDATE: It turns out there is MUCH more to the story according to the Christian Post.

    One source, who asked not to be identified during an interview withThe Christian Post on Thursday, said the confession wasn’t that clean-cut based on what they were told, and feels the situation could have been handled better. He (Bishop Davis) had confessed it (infidelity) personally to his wife prior to the service, and she called a meeting after church with just the members and the members stayed. He wasn’t there at the time, he was somewhere else apparently, neither of them were in the service that morning. They had one of their pastors do the service,” explained the source. “From what I was told, she (pastor’s wife) told the congregation what he had done. And so, when he comes through the door he had no idea what he was walking into. So it wasn’t even. ‘We’re gonna make an announcement today’ … in a unified way as a couple,” the source continued. “I’m told that when he walked through the door she basically told him, ‘Tell them what you just told me,’ which is what induced the heart attack, because it’s not like he was walking into it knowing,” the source explained.

    Whew! God hath no fury…

    Sorry, that should read:
    “Hell hath no fury…”
    but I’ll bet God would agree.

    It’s still funny.

  8. Kind of makes me think of that old saw “…it’s the truth, may god strike me dead…”

  9. I have heard that most people who die during sex were in the wrong bed….

  10. donquijoterocket says:

    What was this guy a “bishop”of and who elected him to the position?

  11. Marcia in CO says:

    @Mike … I think that old saw is actually: “May God strike me dead if I’m lying.”

    Seems odd that if Bishop Davis and the Missus had been married for 50 years … it’s like … who the heck cares if he wiggled his worm at some other little catfish? Perhaps, the other little fishy was still circling the pond … hmmm!! With Kary’s explanation, it could be that the good Bishop was still baiting the hook or, at least, trying to!!

  12. daChipster says:

    Marcia, at his age I’m sure he’s a master baiter.

    (I’m sorry, I couldn’t help myself.)

  13. Marge Wood says:

    I betcha he was feeling porely and had a feeling he better set things straight. Just my guess.

  14. RepubAnon says:

    People dying during confessions? Happens fairly regularly at CIA “black sites” worldwide.

  15. So sad. So sad. Guilt exists for a reason.

  16. e platypus onion says:

    Nothing sad about it. Bout time these sanctimonious asshats get what’s coming to them. If they actually believed the garbage they spew,none of them would stray. What does that say about them? I’d feel sorry for the people that make donations in church to these clods.

    I love the part about all the degrees from “Victory Chistian College” There is a pastor in Pearland, TX who received an honorary PhD from a seminary in Nairobi, Kenya. His wife also received one from the same place. Now both use the Dr. title as if they really earned it.

  18. UmptyDump says:

    Hmm … is that what you’d call a “Come to Jesus” meeting? Doesn’t sound like he’ll be coming anymore with anyone …

  19. Huh. And apparently he wasn’t even handling snakes. Though he was handling things that it would have been wiser not to handle.

  20. Marcia in CO says:

    @DaChip … you’re probably more then right!

    And, @LynnN … oh, the good Bishop was handling a snake alright … LOL As DaChip so eloquently put it … he was baiting his own hook! LOL

    Any chance we could get that same congregation of the Miracle Faith Worldwide Outreach Church to confront Rupert Murdoch? Or (the bad) Roger Ailes? Or Rick Perry?
