Methodists call for Confederate flag removal
"White" Sharpton, Jackson wannabes
The S.C. Conference of the United Methodist Church passed a resolution late Wednesday calling for removal of the Confederate flag from the State House grounds. The resolution passed by a narrow margin after a short discussion, said Matt Brodie, communications director for the annual conference.
Three pastors, including the Rev. John Culp of Columbia’s Virginia Wingard UMC, introduced the resolution. In May, Culp led pastors and lay people in prayer at the Capitol to draw attention to what they see as a symbol of divisiveness.
