Pastor John Goodman is accused of having a rather curious view of attending his flock: fleecing before ministering. Members of the Houston Unity Baptist Church have accused Goodman of refusing to give them communion after they declined to hand over their tax refund to the church.
Goodman insists that it is not the tax refund but more generally the failure to support the church. He is quoted in the article below as saying “I asked if there were any other members, which I know it is, that got income tax money. I ask if they would like to contribute it over here to the new parking lot.”
He says that only a handful of people help with the bills and “called the rest of his congregation devils and demons.”
