    Alabama pastor holds ‘whites only’ conference

    yeah...the whole thing screams "christian"...

    Alabama pastor holds

    A controversial pastor's conference welcoming only "white Christians" is underway in Lamar County, Ala., upsetting residents of the nearby town of Winfield in the western part of the state.

    Christian Identity Ministries is holding a three-day conference for so-called "white Christians" who contend they have been treated unfairly, the Rev. Mel Lewis told local TV station WSFA. Lewis, the organizer and keynote speaker, says they have the right, like any other Americans, to worship how they wish.

    Ku Klux Klan flags and white supremacy slogans surround the conference, which will conclude with a cross being set on fire Friday night. Organizers say it's not a cross-burning, but rather sacred Christian cross lighting.

    "We are not breaking any laws. We're not violating any ordinances. We're bringing the Word of God to people who want it, obviously, or they wouldn't be here," Lewis told the TV station.

    Lewis said of the conference-goers: "They are part of the chosen race."

    The mayor of nearby Winfield said residents are upset, and the event does not represent their town in any way.

    "Business people are upset. The city is upset. The city of Winfield does not condone this," Winfield Mayor Wayne Silas told another local TV station, WECT.

    "It's surprising to see something like that in our town," said Tyler Cantrell. "I know it's been here in the past."

    Organizers say their ministry is not a hate group and that although there is a strong KKK presence, the Klan did not sponsor the event.

    Jesus suffered and died for 'all of mankind'.
    The color of a persons skin may matter to 'some people' but it does not matter to Jesus Christ.
    Bigoted people need to re-read the entire New testament, because they apparently have not learned that Jesus did not come to this Earth to 'condemn' us, but to 'save' us.
    ~Amen~

    It don't take long to be reminded that they're a lot of sorry people on the planet, and some of them even address themselves as "Rev." There is only one reverent person and that's the Lord. This guy will find that out some day when he bows his knee before the Lord.

    Very well said Outlaw. I've got no time for bigoted people, no matter what their religion.

    The Christian Identity movement is hardly main stream Christianity. They are a white supremicist group who's more famous members include Randy Weaver.
    See, it's mumbo jumbo like that and skinny little lizards like you thinking they the last dragon that gives Kung Fu a bad name.

  10. Reverse the situation where it would be "blacks only" and not one word would be said.

    Not one.
