On Sunday, the Perfecting Church, which is ran by Pastor Marvin Winans, will hold a special blessing of its congregation’s children. Unfortunately one child will not be allowed to participate.
Charity Grace’s son, 2-year-old Joshua, is not allowed to participate in the church’s dedication ceremony.
“I want to instill values and morals in my son based upon the word of God,” said Grace.
According to My Fox Detroit, Grace called the church on Tuesday to make arrangements. “I told them I was not married and that’s where everything just broke loose.” Grace said a church official told her Pastor Winans’ policy is that he doesn’t bless children of unwed mothers in front of his congregation.
“I’ve never felt so degraded and disrespected in my life,” said Grace.
“What they could do for me is let my son get dedicated, during a week day with one of the elders of my choice,” said Grace.
“I absolutely would not set foot back in the church right now because I feel like they look down upon me and my kind, meaning single moms and unwed mothers. The church should be the last place you should go to be judged and denied,” said Grace.
Unfortunately My Fox Detroit was unable to reach Pastor Winans for a comment on his “policy”. Way to go with shunning a child, Pastor Winans.
Clutchettes, what do you think about Pastor Winans’ policy?
