The article in the Brunswick New on Monday, 9/6/2010, by Bill Ligion was outrageous considering he proclaims to be a man of God.
When or where is President Obama sending these messages through his mannerisnms to the radical Muslims as he states, when he embarks Air Force One and he has his swagger on and walks like only a "Black Man Can". Is that what you are jealous of - you are spewing racist propoganda and God states "beware of the false prophet, you will not recognize him because he will appear in sheep clothing" well you have shedded your sheep clothing and revealed your true self. Do you not know that if Presdent Obama had anything negative in his backgroud it would have been revealed because it is obvious that some Caucasians as he calls them are still stunned and stressed because an intelligent "Black Man" was elected President of the U.S. Also, he stated that this two day seminar was geared towards a certain group of people, but anyone could attend. He also stated the the Cacucasian race needed to start reproducing more of their kind. Whoa - this man has African American members in his church, an African American Church, New Covenant Church is under the auspicies of Christian Renewal and his son is running for public office, wherein he will represent African Americans. Mr. Ligion, the particiapnts in the seminar should be the white females in this community who is diluting your coveted race, by mating with African American males. At one time it appeared the only white females who were interested in the black males were rejects of their own race, news flash!!!! not anymore, everyday in Glynn County you no longer see only the rejects of your race with black men, but beautiful professional women, so Mr. Ligion that is your biggest problem that you have to deal with, personally I could care less who dates whom, and I am an African American female and I doubt very seriously if you can influence these women to stop dating Afican American Men, because I know "once you go black, you will not go back".

You started off okay with what your thoughts were but the trash surfaced in the end. You are a nasty person.

Anon, I am not a "nasty person" but the truth is the truth, the white female is diluting the Cacucasian race by interracial dating/marriage. I have white female friends, as a matter of fact my BFF is an older white female who does not believe in interracial dating/marriage, but she accepts it, because of the fact that it is prevelant in her family and mine also, and each of these females who have date or married black males, when they break up, when you see them again they continue to date or marry black males - so therefore, I am speaking from personal experience, I probaly shouln't have used the term "rejects of their own race" and I apologize to anyone I offended by using that term including yourself. Peace and love to you, but we do not need men of God dividing this community because of his racial prejudices.

I know Pastor Bill Ligon all too well! During my childhood my parents attended Christian Renewal and were counseled by Pastor Bill Ligon on how to be effective parents. Unfortunately he advised them that if they “spared the rod they would spoil the child.” Well my father did not spare the rod – so much so that the state of Georgia stepped in and removed me from my home for child abuse when I was in the 5th grade. In court Pastor Bill Ligon was there by my parents’ side defending their rights as parents – and Christians to raise their child as they saw fit. After about a month in foster care I was returned to my folks and was monitored for a short period of time by the state. After this monitoring period ended my parents removed me from public school, as it was a public school teacher that had alerted the authorities, and placed me into the newly opened Christian Renewal Academy – administered by none other than Pastor Bill Ligon. This is where the nightmare really began! Some people may think of a good ole whipping when I say abuse – but that is not what I mean. I’m talking an 11 year old child being punched repeatedly in the face by a 6’6” 200# grown man. I’m talking beating on the back and legs so that your clothes stick to the blood/scabs for a week – I’m talking about your nose being rubbed in dog shit because the dog crapped on the floor. I’m talking daily mental abuse – things I don’t want to remember much less say or write down! Now while Pastor Bill Ligon never hit me or did these things himself - I hold him fully liable for what happened to me! Why? Because he knew these things were happening and refused to get the authorities involved! Yes there were times when Pastor Bill Ligon removed me from my home – I spent a few days at a time at his beautiful mansion on Saint Simons Island being bandaged up and cared to by his wife, Mrs. Ligon, and sleeping in their son’s bed (William T. Ligon now a state senator from Georgia) while he was away at law school. But Pastor Bill Ligon kept putting me back home with my abusive father until I set a fire under the school. My parents were told that I was no longer welcomed at the school – by this time I was acting out and doing bad things trying to get the attention of anybody that would care and get me out of my situation before my dad killed me – a very real possibility. Within a few months of being returned to public school my teachers had recognized the signs of child abuse and I was again removed from my home and placed into foster care – this time for good. If anyone has been through what I have – my heart goes out to you! All I can say is it is time to speak up about these kinds of people! I hope the Ligons know the pain that they have caused me! But to those other survivors – I have healed – I am raising two wonderful children who know what love and kindness are! To Pastor Bill Ligon: On judgment day your god will judge your harshly for your actions – if you believe in hell, that is where you will spend eternity, your belief in Jesus will not save you from your actions and evil greedy heart. I know you better than most Pastor Ligon – I know the real you – the one who live in pleasure while your tenants lived in squalor. Remember it was my father and I that kept those rental properties just up to code so that they would not be condemned. I know you well.

Did you ever speak to him about all of this once you were grown up and could get away? I imagine you obviously are very bitter about it, which is a tough place to be (I speak as one who was beaten by her father as a kid - not in a Christian home though, under the auspices of 'spare the rod, spoil the child').

I'm just thinking that if I were you, I would want to get an answer from Mr. Ligon as to why he did what he did...
