Bishop Joe Fox Sr. arrested

JoeFoxSr“Bishop” Joe Fox Sr. was arrested for the sexual assault of a 14-year-old girl. The molestations may have started when the girls was 11.
Police and prosecutors said they believe the claims made by the 14-year-old girl, who gave them detailed descriptions of the sexual assaults she said began when she was 11 years old.
The girl said the assaults began at his north side home and in the office of Fox's former church near Ninth and Burleigh streets.
She told detectives they had "happened too many times for her to be able to put a number on it."
The alleged victim was a member of Fox’s church. Where does the “Bishop” title come from anyway? I assume he gave it to himself  so that he sounds more important. A bishop is usually the responsible for multiple churches. The title implies power. My guess is that our alleged pedopastor Joe Fox Sr., ran a small community church and desperately wanted the legitimacy that a title comes with a like Bishop. I wonder if he will keep the title in prison?
What kind of church would bestow the title of Bishop on a third rate pastor? How does its members face the day knowing that they are playing a silly semantic title game geared towards purchasing clout through meaningless titles. It boggles the mind.
