Here’s what Detrick Haddon had to say about his children with Dominique, his new wife:

I always wanted kids, and God saw me fit to bless me with a family — and he’s blessing me fast! Dominique can certainly have babies really strong.

Pastors with Tax-free Housing Allowance is Now Ruled Unconstitutional

UPDATE on Dec. 11, 2013:

Pastors like Doug Webster of The Following, a church in Lake Forest, Calif., however, disagree with U.S. District Judge Barbara Crabb’s opinion.

Bleeding a few hundred dollars more monthly from me is a sad commentary, especially if the motivation is greed, envy or pride. I will render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s but I advise prudence of sitting judges to encumber the keepers of the spring. Where will the village turn for counsel, support and prayer when the entire community has turned brackish?” added Webster.
