An Ohio pastor and his family were indicted for robbing a Sunday School teacher at gunpoint. (What would Jesus do? Not that.)
Anthony Morris, the Pastor at St. Paul’s AME Zion Church, was charged with aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon along with his wife, Zelda Morris, and daughter, Kamali Morris. Kamali grabbed the Sunday School teacher by her hair, Anthony pushed her to the floor, and Zelda punched her in the face and stole items from her purse.
Each of the three Good, Respectable Christians® faces a first-degree felony, according to the Toledo Blade.
Nickema Turner, 39, of Maumee was teaching Sunday school at the church, 954 Belmont Ave., when the younger woman grabbed her by the hair, according to a Toledo police report.
Mrs. Morris then began punching Ms. Turner, police said. The pastor also pushed Ms. Turner to the ground, according to the police report.
During the assault, Mrs. Morris is accused of dumping items from Ms. Turner’s purse and taking them.
Authorities also said Pastor Morris pulled out a gun and pointed it at Turner she tried to get her possessions back from the holy family.
Two prescription bottles, a Taser, and a cell phone were taken from Ms. Turner’s purse, according to the police report. The cell phone was recovered, but the glass was broken.
The Morris family, who reside in the 3000 block of Evergreen Road, fled the church before police arrived. The couple have been arrested, though the daughter has yet to be located, according to Toledo police.
Ms. Turner was treated at the scene by Toledo Fire and Rescue crews. Ms. Turner and independent witnesses verified the information to police detectives.
This is pretty insane. It’s hard to be surprised with a story about clergymen turning to crime these days, but this one takes the cake… at gunpoint.
I look forward to seeing this family get real jail time, because, while Jesus may forgive them for their sins with a mere repentance, the justice system will likely hold them accountable for their crimes.
