Well, that’s one way to get out of a tense discussion. A Connecticut congregation loudly confronted their longtime pastor about cheating on his wife and in the midst of their yelling, the pastor dropped dead of a heart attack! Read the rest of the this story after the flip….

That’s what happened Sunday at the Miracle Faith World Outreach Church, according to members of the congregation and police sources.

Bishop Bobby Davis, pastor of the Harriet Street church since its founding in 1967, was pronounced dead at Bridgeport Hospital.

“After the service on Sunday the bishop’s family asked us to remain in the church and the bishop confessed to us something that happened long ago,” said Judy Stovall, an elder at the church. “He wanted to come clean with all of us. He wanted to ask our forgiveness.”

Members of the congregation were very vocal with Davis just before he passed out, but they were shouting support for him, Stovall said.

“We were shouting, `We forgive you, we love you,’ but the stress of all of it — he had a heart attack,” Stovall said. “I held his head as he lay on the floor,” she said, her voice cracking with emotion. “Our congregation is hurting now.”

The cause of death is pending further review, according to the Office of the State Medical Examiner.

Davis founded the church with his wife, Christine. The couple, of Monroe, celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary last June. – Via CTPost
