FORMER LOUISVILLE PASTOR'S
White Church Organ Says C. M. E,
Assignment Surprises Membership
Cincinnati, Ohio, Jan. (ANP) The
Southwestern Christian Advocate of
die current issue tells of the appoint
ment of Rev. I. Garland Penn., Jr., to
the pastorate of the Williams C M. E.
Temple at Shreveport, La. Penn was
formerly a minister of the Methodist
Episcopal church and for a time served
as a District Superintendent, but be
came involved in some trouble, said
to be financial in nature, and reports
are current also that he was involved
in other kinds of trouble, the nature of
which was not made known.
The publication in the Southwestern
Christian Advocate that Penn had been
assigned to the big Shreveport church
came as a great surprise to the mem
bers of the Methodist Episcopal church
, • 1 „ 4Via* Ponn was
as it icuouij * ^^ ---
first supended and quit while suspend
ed, while others claimed that he was
tried and found guilty and then ex
pelled from the ministry and member
ship of the Methodist Episcopal church
It has also been authentically es
tablished that there is great disappro
val to Penn's serving the C. M. E.
church in Shreveport on the part of
tht local membership of the Williams
Temple. One of the largest and most
prominent of the C. M. E. church in
the south. The appointment of Penn
to the Shreveport church was made,
it is said, by Bishop J. C. Martin, who
lives in Memphis. Some of the prom
inment ministers of the Louisiana An
nual Conference are said to greath
disapprove of Penn's appointment to
Shreveport, maintaining that it is high
ly unethical, un-Methodistic and tends
to place a premium upon a minister
who has done much against ahe C M
E. church for Penn is alleged to have
caused the C. M. E. church to lose one
of its finest edifices, the rreat Park
Avenue church in Chicago through
court legation which cost several
thousand dollars aside from the loss ol
the church property. Penn is said to
have served ahe Michigan avenue C
M. E. church for a while after joining
the C. M. E. church but soon resigned
or gave it up and went into politics
during the last campaign to make
speeches. That church, Michigan ave
nue, too has been lost to the denomina
tion, according to a statement in a cur
rent issue of The Christian Index, offi
cial organ of the church.
Not only does the Shreveport church
and the Louisiana Annual conference
disapprove of Bishop Martin’s assign
ment of Penn to the Shreveport church
but it is rumored throughout the de
nomination that there has been a storm
of protest to appointing Penn on the
part of the leaders, and some have ever
hinted that protests are so voluminous
that the matter maybe carried to the
College of Bishops of the C. M.
church for final adjudication. Not
within all the history of the C. M. E.
church, its is claimed has an appoint
ment brought forth such connection
wide disapproval and protest, and men
are now dubious whether loyalty and
straightforwardness in private life and
official administration will mean any
thing in the matter of determining ones
fitness for promotion in the industry
if such a practice is to prevail in that
