The head of the country’s fifth largest Christian church has hit back at one of his own pastors by suing him for repeatedly being accused of being a gay pedophile who has received thousands of dollars in kickbacks, Daily Mail Online has learned exclusively.
Bishop Charles Blake, the Los Angeles-based presiding bishop of the six-million-strong Church of God in Christ, says he has finally had enough of the charges from Pastor Earl Carter.
‘Mr. Carter’s misconduct is extreme, outrageous, and beyond all bounds of decency,’ Blake said in newly filed court papers.
Blake, who President Obama appointed to the White House Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships, is suing Carter asking for $75,000 along with an order to stop his crusade against him.
Many celebrities are members of the church: Denzel Washington, Magic Johnson and Maria Shriver, to name a few. Bishop Blake celebrated his 75th birthday, earlier this year.
