People go to church for redemption and salvation. Unfortunately some of the people who are charged with the responsibility to provide it have other agendas, some not so savory.
In the words of the author
Early in 1996, I started work on a manuscript endeavoring to honestly address, what I observed as some very troubling issues in the black church. I decided that I was actually going to discuss, not so much those topics and issues that most church congregants talked about during their official conference meetings or even in their denominational conferences, but those issues that most congregants discretely discussed among themselves out side of church. I knew that by having the audacity to commit these kinds of issues to paper would undoubtedly place me in the unevyable position of being a tattle tale or goat. http://herbertebrown.com/pimps-in-the-pulpit/
