A Pastor friend of mine just sent me this info and I am very in awe of some of the votes!!! Here is his email word for word…
Well, the numbers are in with close to 5,500 having taken my poll for the 2012 COGIC Leaders the results are below. Please note that I closed the poll at midnight Saturday night, which might not reflect what will happen in the General Assembly due to Bishop J. Neal Haynes having an episode during the Official Day Service.
It was more that a struggle for him to complete a simple task of leading the congregation in the COGIC Statement of Faith. If you paid close attention to your program Bishop Haynes was not originally on the program, but his daughter requested her father be added. Seems that was a huge mistake now and just might be the reason he does not get back on the General Board.
Additionally, Sunday Night he had to be escorted out of the service by Bishop Daniels and an adjutant when it is rumored he became overwhelmed. However, this is not the first time the National Church has an opportunity to see there is an issue with Bishop Haynes, four years ago during his speech to be re-elected to the General Board he told the story on how he met his wife and most recently during the Bishop’s Conference in Detroit he interrupted Bishop Blake’s message that he would give an offering of $10,000.
