Back then, Plum Pointers could be irreverent at times
"Jim" doesn't think anything like has happened since Rev. Haynes became pastor in the neighborhood
Comment on Story about Rev. Lewis Haynes and the Plum Point Baptist Church by Linda Waggener
To Linda Waggener, Campbellsville University writer: What a great article about and accompanying photos of Rev. Haynes, Plum Point Church, and the congregants thereof!
Curiously, I came across the following just a few days ago; it appeared in the News almost exactly fivescore and ten years ago (Nov. 28, 1900). I'm pretty sure this isn't a situation Rev. Haynes has encountered :)
Rev. W.P. Gordon reports some very bad conduct upon the part of several young men while his meeting was in progress at Plum Point. They were disturbing the congregation by talking, etc., and was reproved by the minister. This so incensed one of them that he concluded to take a drink. Drawing a pint bottle, he proceeded to pass down his throat a goodly portion of its contents, evidently whisky, in full view of the congregation. Such conduct is an outrage, and the minister believing it such, procured a warrant for the young man's arrest.I believe, but don't know for a fact, that this was Rev. William P. Gordon, was a United Presbyterian minister. -Jim
