Pastor Thins Herd, Ejects Members Over Money

Religious people often build tight-knit communities. Except when they don’t. This sounds like a delightful place:

Members of a Woodstock [Georgia] congregation said their former pastor locked them out and threatened to arrest them if he caught them on the property.


“Our former pastor has locked us out and we cannot get in and he said if he caught trespassing he would have us arrested,” said member Gloria Staton. The group said its been locked out for several months now, following a dispute with Pastor Willard Hambrick about money.

The best part of this story is the name of the House of God in question: All Welcome Baptist Church.
