On October 5, 2006, an article dealing with the situation at Bellevue appeared in the Commercial Appeal.
A reader poll accompanied this article which asked the question, "Ex-deacon accuses the new Bellevue pastor of misleading church and misusing finances. Is he correct?" As of this writing, 10-24-06, 1635 people have voted, and the results are as follows:
(1) Yes 56.6% (925)
(2) No 29.6% (484)
(3) Undecided 13.8% (226)
