Man Ejected From Church On Easter Sunday After Ex-wife Complains!!
Reader, did this church choose sides in this matter? A Birmingham lawyer was ejected from the Church of the Highlands on Sunday after attending an Easter Sunday worship service, when his ex-wife complained that he was in violation of a court order. Bart Slawson posted his account of the ejection on Facebook.
"I just went to Easter Sunday to worship Jesus at the church," Bart told AL.com. "I've got 10 policemen in my face, searching me. I was sitting on the couch. I was on my way out. I got a text message from a friend so I sat down to read it." A sergeant from Irondale Police Department helped handle the situation, Bart said. "He was very professional and polite," Bart said. "He kept saying, 'There are two sides to the story. The restraining order doesn't say church.'" The head of church security made it clear to him he was banned permanently not only from the main campus at the Church of the Highlands in Irondale, but from all 15 of its branch campuses.
