• For he who is without sin, cast the first tase? Don’t tase me, Lord? I don’t know exactly how they usually roll at New Welcome Baptist Church in St. Elmo, Alabama, but I hope that an incident where the pastor is tased and a woman gets stabbed isn’t a part of a typical church service. Simone Moore, a self-proclaimed R&B artist, tased the pastor after he was handed his last check after he was dismissed as the church’s minister of music. In the subsequent scuffle, a deacon of the church pulled out a pocket knife and began stabbing Moore’s mother. Sweet Jesus, indeed. [msnbc]
