Columbus church explains sign

Kingdom Metropolitan Worship Center on Airport Thruway wants you to know they're not supporting the Hillary Clinton for President campaign because of a particular action over the weekend. So they put it on their church sign Monday. It was to come down Tuesday afternoon, said Bishop Marshall McGill.

The sign went up because Clinton pamphlets were put onto cars during the 11 a.m. worship time Sunday. McGill and other leaders and members were angry about it. They discovered the pamphlets after the service.

"There are people in our church who have some serious issues, like cancer," McGill said Tuesday. "We want peace at our church."

After staff picked up the pamphlets from the pavement and surrounding areas Sunday, McGill said he contacted the national Hillary Clinton office, the state office and the local office. He said no one took responsibility for passing out the literature.

A staffer in the Atlanta office told the Ledger-Enquirer on Tuesday he was not aware of the distribution.

McGill said the sign should clarify that the church was not behind the pamphlet distribution. He said if the people distributing the material wanted to go through the proper channels and ask permission, they would have gotten a better reception.

McGill said he and his church respect Clinton as a person, and encourage people to vote for whomever they wish, but do not support the action on Sunday.
