Harlem Churches Making Money Off Tourists
One of the oldest churches in New York State has become a very popular tourist attraction in New York City. So much so, that the regular Sunday morning church members are getting irritated with so many people showing up to get their early Sunday morning fix of soulful gospel music on and rudeness at the same time.
During the services, just before the morning sermon, parishioners are told that if you have to go—go now before the sermon begins. But the tourists continue to ignore this request and some leave during the sermon only to be told that they cannot do so, but they still walk out anyway!
The people of the church continue to allow this disrespectful behavior because these tourist leave dollar bills that are much needed to I guess sustain the church and its services.
