Southern Pastor Holding Whites-Only Conference And Cross Lighting
Rev. William C. Collier of Winfield, Alabama put out a flier for a July 4, 5, 6 conference saying “All White Christians Invited.”
According to Norris Music manager Tyler Cantrell, who found the flier and brought it to public attention, the fliers were put up during the night without permission of business owners. Cantrell also stated, “”It’s surprising to see something like that in our town…I know it’s been here in the past.”
As for Rev. Collier, he maintains that his church is not a hate group.
“We don’t have the facilities to accommodate other people. We haven’t got any invitations to black, Muslim events. Of course we are not invited to Jewish events and stuff.”
…To add another layer of intrigue, the three-day ceremony ends with a “Sacred Christian Cross Lighting Ceremony.” Lighting a cross? Hmm, what does that remind me of?
