LOXLEY, Ala. - Authorities are investigating the alleged beating of a preacher by funeral mourners who didn't like his blunt eulogy.
Glynis Bethel tells the Associated Press that her husband, Pastor Orlando Bethel, was attacked during a June 14 funeral and dragged out of the church. That's because Bethel told mourners the deceased was in hell and that they were headed the same way.
The dead man was Mrs. Bethel's uncle.
Pastor Bethel referred to him as a "drunkard and a fornicator." Mrs. Bethel, who's also a preacher, says, "the fornicators didn't like what he said so they got up and beat him."
She says police didn't make any arrests, so she and her husband, who may have a broken nose, are taking out warrants.
I guess you go to hell for that too?

Heh, those foolish silly Christians. I would have beat up that preacher too, if for no other reason than that he seems to be the typical hick preacher, with stories of fire and brimstone for all.
Don't blame all the Christians, just the hyper-insane Southern Baptists. I guess this can all be blamed on the sister-marrying, spam-eating, backwoods collection of filth that is Alabama. (Sorry, but that's where I'm from, and I have no respect for it)
Go ahead and beat the preachers up, there's plenty to go around. I'll join you.
