Bishop Bledsoe's retirement

Kind of sounds like the company that had a major layoff and the foreman of one department notified a worker he was being cut. The worker said that he was being let go because he was black. The foreman responded "we hired you because you are black. You are being laid off because you are imcompetent." As a practicing Methodist I don't believe Bishop Bledsoe was hired because he was black or ask to resign because he is incompetent, but he did receive a less than stellar review, and so I do believe he is not acting in the best interests of the Methodist Church by making his stepping down a big issue, particularly by playing the "race card."
