Pastor Of Friendship Baptist Church Stands By “Love Or Leave It” Message

Many in the congregation of one Virginia church aren’t happy about a sign put up by the pastor. The sign out front of Friendship Baptist Church in Appomattox reads “America: Love it or leave it” and Pastor E.W. Lucas stands by its message. While some support the sentiment, not everyone does. The church was empty Sunday for its 11 a.m. service and Lucas says some members of the church led the congregation out in protest.
