Everywhere he has turned over the past week, The Rev, Brendan Powell Smith has faced heavy criticism. First his girlfriend heavily criticized the outfit Smith was wearing. Then his friends laid down some heavy criticism of his basketball skills. Most recently, his own parents were heavily critical of Smith’s recent stint of unemployment. When Smith insisted they refer to it as his “early retirement”, his father pointed out that “retired people aren’t flat broke.”
