Pastor Joyner of Sweet Home Baptist Church was misquoted - football announcer's comments about whether or not crowd sits during high school football game misinterpreted?
9-10-16, Rev. Allen Joyner, pastor of the Sweet Home Baptist Church in McKenzie, a small, small town of fewer than 1,000 citizens located in Butler County, Alabama about 160 miles south of Birmingham; for ten years was the volunteer announcer for the McKenzie Tigers Football team. He has resigned due to the Facebook backlash for a claim that he said people who don't stand for the United States Natl Anthem should be shot.
He said the quote on FaceBook was false; that he was misquoted. “What i said was, ‘if you don’t want to stand for our national anthem, we’ll take time to tell you about the people who served and gave you that right to sit.” However, he has resigned from his volunteer job as announcer.
Joyner also feels sorry for the woman who posted the original message on FaceBook, who has since deleted her Facebook account. “I would just love for her to know that we pray for her. Because she has been thrown under the bus.”
Joyner admits he shouldn’t have shared his patriotic beliefs at the football field, but is still standing by his original statement and wishes he would have chosen a better venue and different words. More
