Long before I ever really knew the true significance of church, I always enjoyed going. The music was good. It was an opportunity to get dressed up. And before I settled in for my standard nap on my mom’s lap, I noticed that some of the people were off the chain. As I got older and stayed awake a little bit longer, I noticed the people at a black church, often fall in one of a few categories. Check them out and let us know if you know someone just like this at your house of worship.

    So sad! These are some of the reasons why I’m a Muslim.

  • Some, I daresay most, of those “Holy Ghost Catchers” are fakes!! It was so ridiculous at one church I went to, Sister Sharp had her OWN Holy Ghost music! It was the most ratchet spectacle you ever wanted to see. Every Sunday she would “catch” the Holy Ghost and she was so predictable you knew when she was going to go. The choir director, Tim, had a whole organ piece ready for her. When she stood up, that organ started going and so did she!

  • People go to Church to Worship and get free. I just find it tasteless to make fun of the Church. It’s a serious matter.

    You left out the candy lady – she stays handing out Brach’s hard candies from the Woolworth’s bins from 1975. She rustles the wrappers during service and always smells of butterscotch.

    You do definitely have all the above. Playas in the church as well, and like the author stated a lot of single women do go after the pastor especially if he is single. They will move to another state to get with that pastor. It happens all the time.
