Charles E. Blake

Charles E. Blake is a California bishop who reportedly earns $900,000 per year and lives in a 10,000 square feet Beverly Hills mansion. He earns his massive salary from the help of 25,000 weekly members who attend his church, and 50,000 online weekly participants. While he lives the good life, his average parishioner earns just $27,907 while living in poverty in South Central Los Angeles.

The HuffPo recently reported a new salary figure, taking Blake’s alleged earnings down to $227,750.
