Louisiana Pastor “Checkerz” Arrested After Road Rage Shooting

Last week, in Louisiana, a man driving a Hyundai Sonata was allegedly “driving erratically” and caused a small crash. The driver then got out of the car, grabbed a gun, and began shooting at a tractor-trailer. Then he ran away.

He didn’t get very far.

He was later apprehended and booked on several charges, including aggravated assault with a firearm, aggravated criminal damage to property, illegal carrying and discharge of weapons and reckless operation.

So naturally, you all know how this story ends.

The driver turns out to be Christopher “Checkerz” Williams, the lead pastor at Baton Rouge’s Renew Church.

The church’s website is suddenly “under routine maintenance” (right, sure) and the Facebook page isn’t available, but the internet never forgets.

Of course all of this gets even more ironic when you consider the church’s mission.

“These are the things we don’t shy away from at Renew Church. We make it very clear that every single person is created in (the image) of God,” Williams said. “Every person needs to be treated with dignity, respect and with love and compassion regardless of their race, ethnicity, their socio-economic status, religious background or political affiliations.”

Right. Dignity and respect. Unless you happen to be driving an 18-wheeler and minding your own damn business, in which case this pastor might just have to fire a gun in your direction.

It’s also ironic that the church has a sermon up on YouTube in which Pastor Checkerz talks about the “value of life.”

If that’s the man teaching morals to people in this church, members need to find a new place to worship.
