    @SugarMagnolia,

    Thank you for your comments. Everything in the column is factual, and does not at any point identify Thompson as the current pastor. The column wasn't intended to discuss the church's opinion, the current church's pastor's opinion, or cover a lengthy timeline of what happened from start to finish. The column is my opinion, and I chose to write about Thompson, the church's former pastor, who initiated the vote that drew national attention to the Freewill Baptist Church in KY. The column is also meant to discuss the church in question, not all the Freewill Baptist Churches, or Baptist Churches in general.

    If you would like to discuss the topic further, you are welcome to write a blog, or Letter to the Editor. Thank you for reading.

    From the L.A. Times via Associated Press:

    "The church member and former pastor who pushed for the vote, Melvin Thompson, wouldn't tell the Associated Press why he did it."

    "Thompson stepped down as pastor earlier this year for health reasons, according to Harville's father, Dean Harville. He said it was Thompson who told him that Chikuni couldn't sing at the church, a small, one-story red brick building with few windows and a white steeple."

    Haha! I'm not sure how much money that would earn. Probably more like negative dollars. :) I like your thinking though!

    Hi, Country Chic --

    We write about all religions on the Faith Page and I like to be as diverse as possible with our religion coverage. This piece on Ramadan is timely since Muslims are currently observing their holy month in August. It is one of the two most important holiday seasons in Islam. Hope that helps. Thanks for reading.
