Criticism and commentary on southern gospel music
Looks like we may be able to add arson to the list of “stupid choices” (to borrow a phrase from Christianshame.com) that gospel singers make (h/t, S and DY).
Kind of sounds like the makings of a good Ray Stevens song.

I saw this item on the tv news in Nashville yesterday, and when I heard the words “gospel singer arrested”, of cource my ears perked up. I don’t know who made the decision to air the piece, but since the persons involved are no-name wannabe’s, I think it must have been a slow news day.

I live in the area. I read somewhere that she was upset at the pastor because he questioned their relationship since neither was wearing a wedding band. Allegedly, he told them that he wasn’t going to let them perform if they were “shacking up” and not married.

Let’s face it, no wedding rings, a couple with different last names, calling themselves a husband and wife duo. In church circle, it is a little unusual. I can see why the pastor might be puzzled.
It’s people like this that give the church a bad reputation. I can see someone using this as ammo against all traveling gospel singers. Just as people used the antics of certain televangelists to stereotype them all.
And I’m sure we’ll see some postings herein, to that effect.

Old Harry Peters hardly knows where to start. To begin with, Harry Peters hopes none of you ever sit on a jury in court. You have already tried and convicted this woman. May old Harry Peters point out, she HASN’T BEEN TRIED OR CONVICTED, only ACCUSED. I remember a woman like that in the Bible who was even rightly accused. Harry Peters is quite certain that none of you want Jesus showing up and writing in your sand pile. As for the “alledged” pastor, who was prepared to help, provided she passed his litmus test of people who are “worthy” of help, maybe he or any of you can point out in the bible where Jesus ever conditined his help on someone being the way he wanted them to be. Finally for all of the rest of you who judge, you might get used to a little fire. I can smell smoke from the pits of hell from here on earth and if you are judged by the same standard you judge, you just might find yourself in a lake of fire!

Old Harry Peters cannot imagine a Christian taking delight in a website like christianshame.com I doubt it was put up by Christians for Christians. Second, the article speaks of the owner’s of the church. I think the article’s writer was poking fun at this fundamentalist church. Even non-Christians know that the true church belongs to God and not to any human being–yes…building, land and all. Finally, the ironic humor was not lost on old Harry Peters that the fire investigator’s name was “Captain Morgan.” Perhaps it was his nickname because he drinks too much of it. The case as outlined in the story (which is all any of us has to go on, except for gossip) will never be found guilty from a jury, unless of course…they are ALL like you.
