PASTOR: Sad excuse for a news headline

Re: “Pastor of megachurch, online investor linked to porn-site domains” (TNT, 2-17).

I am saddened and appalled by the article on the front page. It was a slanderous article attacking a local pastor, William Wolfson.

The article contained little or no reason for the attack. There was no content on the sites and no proof of wrongdoing on the pastor’s part. However, your establishment felt the need to run this slanderous attack on a beloved member of our community on a Sunday. What were you hoping to achieve?

I believe that the paper owes an apology to the members of the church and Wolfson personally stating that it should have looked further into the accusations before taking it upon themselves to attack a good man in our community.
