Get to the Point

Once again we find an example of the misguided pious attempting to get their "point" across.

SHEBOYGAN FALLS, Wis. - A pastor and parishioner have been cited by police for shooting an arrow during a church service. The pastor asked to have the arrow shot across the front of the church during a recent service at Pentecostals of Sheboygan County as a 'teaching tool.' As the parishioner prepared to shoot the arrow with his bow, one man stood up and objected, telling the pastor it was unsafe and illegal. Parishioners said the pastor told the man to be quiet and sit down. When the man objected a second time, the pastor asked him to leave. He did... and called the police. The parishioner was cited for using a missile indoors and the pastor was cited for aiding and abetting. Both were fined $109.

UPDATE: It has been released in a later report that the do-gooder who opposed the arrow demonstration has dropped all charges. The circumstances behind the retraction are unclear.
