Updated With Video! Police Chase Pastor up A Tree!
On Tuesday, July 20, the police chased Pastor Ronnie Wallace, a black Pastor and disabled Veteran from Charlotte, N.C up a tree in front of the Family Reproductive Health Abortion Clinic on Hebron St, Charlotte N.C. Pastor Wallace has been coming to this Abortion Clinic for years to offer help and hope to women. On Saturday, July 17 the police did not allow Pastor Wallace to drive his pickup onto the public right of way, as was his usual custom, so he parked and sat on a step ladder to preach the Gospel. The police then ordered him to come down and arrested him when he refused and cited his 1st amendment right to preach on the public right-of way.
This morning, Pastor Wallace again arrived with his step ladder and when ordered to stop preaching from the ladder, he stepped from the ladder to a tree on the same right of way. The police are still insisting he stop preaching and come down from the tree but have not arrested as of yet.
What I tell you in the dark, say in the light, and what you hear whispered, proclaim on) the housetops. And) do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell. Matt. 10:27-28
“When a pastor cannot find a housetop to proclaim that Jesus is Lord, then a tree will do!” Rev. Rusty Thomas
