(BREAKING WIDE) — Pastor Resigns from God’s Vineyard after Representing KKK leader in a Birthday Party.
Will Dismukes (R-Prattville), pastor of Pleasant Hill Baptist Church in Prattville resigned his position as a preacher on Wednesday after representing KKK Leader in a birthday party and sharing it on social media.
Dismukes faced massive backlash with his deleted Facebook post of him representing KKK leader and Confederate general Nathan Bedford Forrest in a birthday party.
At the exact time John R Lewis was being taken over the Edmund Pettus bridge for the last time, Dismukes announced on his Facebook page that he gave a prayer at the event in Selma on Saturday.
Earlier this week, Republican and Democratic parties of Alabama denounced Dismukes’ actions in a statement. Rick Lance, executive director of the Alabama Baptist State Board of Missions said.
“We are saddened and grieved to learn of the recent Facebook post by state Rep. Will Dismukes.” “In the wake of tremendous controversy we reaffirm our opposition to any kind of racism.”
On Will Dismukes resignation, Mel Johnson, lead mission strategist for Autauga Baptist Association, of which Pleasant Hill is a member told The Alabama Baptist publication, that he was thankful that he resigned.
“The Baptist churches can move forward and remain focused toward Great Commission efforts to communicate the gospel and reach our world for Christ.” “Scripture is clear that all people are created in God’s image and therefore equal in every way before Christ and our personal need of Him as Savior and Lord.”
