Hip-hop has its share of thug rappers that carry out numerous heinous crimes on track and it’s your choice whether you listen to or are a fan of them. But some of us are supposed to have a moral responsibility that would prevent support of people like this.
Rodney Wills, 26, has been pastor Mt. Salem Baptist Church in North Carolina for three years and entering his fourth as the deacons of the 109-year-old church voted 11-3, that Wills be ousted for attending a Rick Ross concert. He returned to the church to find that he had his parking space removed as well as his name from its usual placement. But, this decision was not as immediate as it seems, according to Black America Web.
Wills had been spotted at a Lil’ Wayne concert approximately nine months ago and apparently, that charge against him didn’t stick. Maybe the deacons thought he was “back sliding” a little bit, but a righteous man has room to fall. But Pastor Wills only got one slip-up and he was ousted on the second, but Proverbs 24:16 states: “For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief.” I guess they didn’t feel he was a “just man.”
Deacon Miles Langley, released a statement on behalf of the church:
“We cannot have our leader supporting people of this world who are tearing down the kingdom of God,” reports the Guardian Express.
Our question is: WHO SPOTTED HIM AT BOTH CONCERTS?
What do you think? Too harsh? Proper punishment?
