I knew he worked for the Navy. I knew he worked for the Federal Reserve. I knew he knows how to flip a pizza (or does he?). But I didn’t know that Herman, the Conductor of the Cain Train, is an ordained minister and assistant Pastor in his 14,000 member church in Georgia.
I am not exactly familiar with all ends and twists of Christianity. But I get that a Minister is someone who has “Hoy-roo-ah” or say “Semicha” to perform religious services such as weddings, funerals, etc. A Pastor is someone who actually runs a Church.
I think this end of Cain’s background may perhaps encourage more Jewish voters to go for him, certainly until his train derails. Playing an active role in what is at this time a peaceful religion, is looked up by many in the Jewish Community who live in circles where religion is a corestone of life.
