Alabama's ABC 33/40 news reports that mayor of Winfield has asked city employees to help remove fliers which went up last night advertising an annual pastors' conference. The news station reports that the fliers invite only white Christians to a 3-day event beginning on the 4th of July. It will end with "a sacred Christian cross lighting ceremony."
The conference is sponsored by the Church of God's Chosen, a Christian Identity Ministry. The Birmingham News quotes the organizer of the event as saying that his church "is not a hate group."
