ON THE MASONS.
Unusual Incident at Pop
lar Springs Church.
Rev. Mr. Haddock's Indis
Prominent and Worthy Men would uot |
Muten Silently to the Preacher's
In the course of a sermon in Poplar |
Springs Baptist Church, Sullivans
township, Sunday morning Rev. H, C.
Haddock, the pastor, made a denun
ciatory attack on masonry. He is re
ported to have said that the olaim that |
masonry recognizes teachings of the
Bible was false and to have used lang
uage necessarily and extremely insult
lag to all masons. It.is sa!d that Mr.
E. O. Mitchell arose in the congrega
tion and inquired politely if Mr. Had
dock was a mason..The latter admitted
that he was not. Mr. Mitohell then in
timated that he was not in a position
to know what he was talking about. Mr.
Jeff Crawford is said to have joined
Mr. Mitohell In his protest as did sev
eral others. The preacher abruptly
closed his sermon and after the service
several gentlemen rebuked him.
Men like Mr. Mitchell and Mr. Craw
ford would not interrupt a preacher
without the provocation was great bu t
they must have felt that the preacher
was in utter Ignorance seeking to I
prejudice the community by an intem
perate and unwarranted attack upon a
worthy institution of which they were
? part. They doubtless saw that the
only way to reply and make defence
was then and there. Hence they nat
urally could not sit still in their seats.
It seems that an intulligent preacher |
could soarcely expeot to harshly abuse
an honorable society in tho presence of
its members without causing resent
ment in them any more than he could
expeot to insult thorn by name without
expeoting the insults to be resented.
