From the Washington Times, “Black church will pay whites to attend”, July 31, 2003:

Greenwood Acres Full Gospel Baptist Church in Shreveport, La., is eager for more diversity, so it will pay white people to attend services in August. Bishop Fred Caldwell, who said the idea came to him during his sermon Sunday at the mostly African-American church, said he will pay $5 an hour for Sunday services and $10 for the Thursday service, according to the Shreveport Times.
