Pastor Adams(not Rev. because we only reverence God)and Rep. Favors are in the trenches working to do what alot of others just sit back and critize others for not doing (damned if you do and damned if you don't). The church is commonplace(banality) for guidiance. I wonder if Pastor Adams' critic (Patriot1) has ever been to OBC or tuned to Fox (channel 61) on Sunday mornings and heard any of his sermons? Wonder if he knows the different ministries within the church that is geared toward the youth or the mentoring programs at the church? Has he ever been to OBC on Sundays and seen the youth that are giving their lives to the Lord and giving up the gang lifestyle? Has he ever heard testimonies from prisoners who have turned their lives around because of the Word of God that Pastor Adams and his ministry team have shared with them. I am a member of OBC and I invite you to come see and hear and then make your judgement after you have witnessed for yourself what the man of God is doing for our community.
Rep. Favor is a woman of God whose also working with and for the community here and in Nashville. It's easy to sit back and throw stones but what have you done lately for the community other than hide behind a user name and critize just about every article that hits the CTFP....Get involved!!!!!
The last time I heard of so much controversy over a high school athlete was back in the 70's when Charles Morgan and Reggie White were feshmen and both Baylor and McCallie were "recruiting" to get them. Their mothers and fathers were alumnus of Howard High School and they both chose to continue the tradition and attended Howard. I wonder if Mr McClendon weren't such a good ball player would Signal Mountain still be as interested in him or is it just for what he can do for them on the field that will also increase their monetary benfits for the athletic department?
