A woman is accused of using God’s word as a weapon against her pastor in their Mid-South church. A 63-year-old church member used a Bible to hit the pastor in the head after he told her and other members to leave or he would call the Sheriff. “He’s got the demon in him,” Ina Garrett said.
Ina Garrett, a life-long member of Mount Zion Baptist Church in Selmer, Tennessee decided to knock that demon out of pastor Leon Taylor.
“One of the older church members came up and struck the pastor with a Bible,” McNairy County Sheriff Guy Buck said. “I hit him in the head,” Garrett admitted. The sheriff arrested 63-year-old Ina Garrett and charged her with assault. The pastor of Mount Zion Baptist Church showed us a photo of welts on the side of his head.
“Evil is evil,” Pastor Leon Taylor said. “You understand what I’m saying, and bullying is bullying and that’s what they have done.” There is a rift among church members at Mount Zion. The members chose Pastor Taylor to lead the church a year ago.
