From the article”

“While cultural and moral issues will be the focus of a pre-election sermon, the Rev. Fred Winters, pastor of the First Baptist Church of Maryville, is worried about other topical election issues, such as tort reform.”

You think he was shot by a deranged lawyer?

Doubt it. Have no real knowledge of the area, but found it interesting that he was an outspoken Christian Pastor.

The Left cannot stand them.

Look at what they did to Sarah Palin’s Church after the Election. That was no accident, nor was it a local that did it.

I doubt it was a lawyer.

This may amplify what we previously posted.

Winters-

“I believe there are under-the-radar issues that are hard to address,” said Winters. “I’m very concerned about doctors leaving Madison County. We need to be informed.”

Winters said that even if he were allowed to endorse certain candidates, he wouldn’t. “It’s not something I would do,” he said.

But he will delve into God’s view of marriage and abortion, believing that the church has an obligation to give direction to its people.

“Not merely this is how to vote, but getting people to think what the issues are,” he said. “We definitely have an obligation to protect the church.”

Citing the book of Romans, Winters said Christians who don’t vote are “disobedient.”
