New OWN Series ‘Greenleaf’ Make Painstaking Inquiries Into The Drama Of A Memphis Megachurch!
Reader the son of the late former Presiding Bishop of the Church of God in Christ Bishop James O. Patterson Sr., Benjamin Jimerson-Phillips is claiming that Oprah new series drama Greenleaf which aired its first episode last night is about his family. Mr. Phillips posted that he understand the show is a fictionalization series, not a biographical series, but it's still pretty easy to follow the parallels:
A). Black Mega Church based in Memphis (Only Black Mega Church to ever come from Memphis is COGIC/otherwise it would have been better to base the church in ATL where there are at least 10 black megachurches)
B). Pastor is Bishop James O. Greenleaf (COGIC Leader was Bishop James O. Patterson)
C). The Bishop & his family have a spotless public reputation (but behind closed doors, there are illegitimate children, disappearing millions of dollars, drugs and alcohol, sibling rivalry & corruption).
