Not your grandmother’s Bible thumpin’.

Ina Garrett, a 64-year-old Southern Baptist woman, has been charged with assault for, admittedly, smacking her pastor in the head with a Bible. Even more shocking is that the Rev. Leon Taylor, of the 30-member Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Selmar, Tenn., then allegedly took a swing at Garrett.

It appears that Garrett had been voted out of the church after involving herself in an effort to have Taylor removed as pastor because “he’s got the demon in him.”

The Smoking Gun has the criminal complaint. Thanks to Torch for the video link.
