The Citizen-Times has the latest news update on the East Waynesville Baptist Church controversy – you know, the church that kicked out the Democrats.
Sounds like the pastor is trying to give himself a little wiggle room. He’s saying nobody was kicked out for political reasons. Maybe he has some other reason up his sleeve. Who knows.
Everybody and their brother was standing outside the church waiting to cover the story. We’ll see how this develops.
What a year for WNC. First we’ve got some guy (Maywes) in Fairview who puts a bounty out on Terry Schiavo’s husband’s head. Now this. Oh yeah, and we dredged up all the old Rudolph memories when he pleaded guilty. We’re never going to shake the stereotypes, are we?
