Yes, these are men-only events.
Sounds a bit odd to me.
BEAST FEAST: At a politically influential church attended by Sheriff's Deputy JEREMY BANKS' church, there's an annual event called "BEAST FEAST," where he men shoot and kill game animals; the women cook it and serve it to the men.
Some 500 men.
Controversial Sheriff DAVID SHOAR and State's Attorney RALPH JOSEPH LARIZZA have attended BEAST FEAST in prior years, introduced with fanfare and music. Both SHOAR and LARIZZA covered up the September 2, 2010 homicide of Ms. Michelle O'Connell in the home of Deputy JEREMY BANKS.
Mosquito Control Commission Chair GARY HOWELL attends, too.
Are the serving-women (including those married to, living with or dating Sheriff's deputies) permitted to buy raffle tickets that would give them guns for self-defense?
Quo vobis videtor? (What do y'all reckon?)
Memphis Commercial Appeal has rightly questioned why churches hold raffles giving away guns. (See below)
So I've asked the Pastor of Turning Point at Cavalry Church and Academy, Rev. Dr. Mark Conrad some questions, No answers.
He's the father of St. Johns County Clerk of Courts and Comptroller Hunter Conrad.
Both father and son used their respective letterheads -- one church and one state -- to send letters to the Republican Party of Florida in support of ousted St. Johns County Republican Chair WILLIAM KORACH, who filed their letters in Circuit Court (Rev. Dr. Conrad's letter is fuzzy, hard to read and incomplete, with no signature page.
Both father (Mark Conrad) and son (Hunter Conrad) seem ethically impaired, misusing organizational letterheads for political purposes.
This could put the church's 501c3 at risk.
This raises ethical questions about Clerk of Court
At the podium of the June 19, 2018 County Commission meeting, considering his annual budget, I told Clerk of Courts and Comptroller Hunter Conrad: "DON'T DO IT AGAIN."
