Son Of A Preacher Man

Earl Paulk and Dottie Rambo
......and this just in from the AP wire:

The 80-year-old leader of a suburban Atlanta megachurch is at the center of a sex scandal of biblical dimensions: He slept with his brother's wife and fathered a child by her.

Members of Archbishop Earl Paulk's family stood at the pulpit of the Cathedral of the Holy Spirit at Chapel Hill Harvester Church a few Sundays ago and revealed the secret exposed by a recent court-ordered paternity test.

"I am so very sorry for the collateral damage it's caused our family and the families hurt by the removing of the veil that hid our humanity and our sinfulness," said D.E. Paulk, who received the mantle of head pastor a year and a half ago.

D.E. Paulk said he did not learn the secret of his parentage until the paternity test. "I was disappointed, and I was surprised," he said.

Earl Paulk, his brother, Don, and his sister-in-law, Clariece, did not return calls for comment.

D.E. Paulk is Donnie Earl Paulk..

It appears the par tay was reeling right along!

Owing to a recent computer crash, I lost my Springfield Bloggers e-mail list. So I'm leaving this message here, and elsewhere in the Springfield blogosphere, to let everyone know we have Springfield Bloggers meeting tonight at 7:00 (Tuesday 20 November) at the Patton Alley Pub.

Why do a lot of the wives look like some version of Tammy Faye? What a legacy. Even Jim Large Mouth Bass Bakker's current woman is a bit of a clone.
