I saw this on the news last night, a black preacher in the south, is paying $5.00 an hour to any caucasian that will attend his Sunday morning services. His reasoning is that the churches are so segregated and they shouldn't be, so if he pays the white people to attend service with his congregation then perhaps that will break the racial barrier and loosen constraints. Some people refused to take the money, but others gladly pocketed the check. The money is coming out of the Pastor's own account, and he says he is going to do it again and ask for hispanics, and then asians to attend.
