COGIC Leader Charles Blake is Standing with Nike

According to a recent photo posted on social media by Citadel Deliverance COGIC Pastor Linwood Dillard, Jr., the Church of God in Christ’s presiding bishop, Charles Blake, Sr., is joining several other leading black pastors in showing support for the Nike brand’s controversial move to make anthem-kneeler Colin Kaepernick the face of the company’s 30th anniversary “Just Do It” campaign. While at least one pastor has shown contempt for the move by cutting up his Nike apparel in the pulpit during Sunday service, others have encouraged their congregants to wear Nikes to church service for “Nike Sunday,” as Bishop Blake was captured wearing.
