63-year-old Tennessee woman arrested after she hits pastor with a Bible

63-year-old Ina Garrett recently struck her pastor Leon Taylor of Mount Zion Baptist Church with a Bible. Garrett and other members of the small church in West Tennessee were in an ongoing dispute with the pastor and wanted him to leave the church, so Garrett decided to take matters into her on hands. WMC-TV reports:

MEMPHIS, TN – (WMC-TV) – A woman is accused of using God’s word as a weapon against her pastor in their Mid-South church. A 63-year-old church member used a Bible to hit the pastor in the head after he told her and other members to leave or he would call the Sheriff.

“He’s got the demon in him,” Ina Garrett said. Ina Garrett, a life-long member of Mount Zion Baptist Church in Selmer, decided to knock that demon out of pastor Leon Taylor.  “One of the older church members came up and struck the pastor with a Bible,”

McNairy County Sheriff Guy Buck said. “I hit him in the head,” Garrett admitted. The sheriff arrested 63-year-old Ina Garrett and charged her with assault.  The pastor of Mount Zion Baptist Church showed us a photo of welts on the side of his head.
