The video shows Bishop Jackson praying and lying on atop new bishops  as they lye on the floor. The men are shrouded in red and white cloth during the ceremony, which took place in August at his church, Impact Ministries International. Jackson says detractors have assailed the ceremony on his Facebook page but any negative messages seem to have been erased from his wall. The Detroit religious leader says that the way in which he conducts the ceremony is similar to the ordination of Catholic priests.

“I have done nothing wrong,” said Jackson, a grandfather and married father of nine, told The News on Tuesday. “This was done in front of a thousand people. It was not done in secret.”

He says that he does not plan to discontinuing the style in which in conducts the ceremony, but his critics argue that he should reconsider.

“If I were Wayne T. Jackson, I would find another way to ordain bishops in the future,” the Rev. Horace Sheffield III of New Destiny Baptist Church in Detroit said this week during his radio show on WCHB-1200 AM.
