Evangelist wants to shoot stray dogs

Evangelist states that he plans to shoot stray dogs today

Update: Mr. Williams has posted (since the publication of this article) that he may have found a safe place for the dog to go. He is now stating that he never intended to kill any dogs – he was just “ticked off” by people who were offering free advice.

A man, who is an evangelist at the Oak Hill Christian Church in Corinth, Mississippi, is sparking a great deal of outrage on social media today. Facebook user Frank Williams has been engaging people on the social media site about stray dogs who showed up on his property…and his plans to get rid of them.

A Facebook user by the name of Amber wrote:

Well local Corinth folks, Mr. Frank Williams has made it public that the two dogs at his residence that showed up will be put down by the end of the day. He said he “won’t spend money to get a dog gone”, and he said he isn’t dumping them. So I’m assuming a bullet doesn’t cost him much. Could we help this super classy gentleman out with these two dogs since our animal control won’t do their job?

Amber uploaded screenshots of messages that she has apparently engaged Mr. Williams in – in one message, she advises the man that there is a $1000 fine for dumping dogs in the state. Mr. Williams’ response, “Who said I was dumping dogs? They will be put down.”

On the Facebook thread tied to Amber’s post, one commenter added a link to Mr. Williams’ public posts about the situation. Though multiple people have criticized his alleged plans to kill the dogs today, he apparently have no qualms about his intentions.

When one woman stated, “All life is precious and killing is killing especially when you have humane alternatives.” Mr. Williams noted that he is not afraid of his plans being made public, “I am not going to bullied by an idiot…make me famous…I am already famous…I belong to King Jesus… share away….”

It would appear that the self-reported man of God would rather shoot dogs in need, than take them to a shelter…because he does not want to pay money to surrender them.

 

A link to the Facebook page for the church where Mr. Williams is listed as the “preaching minister,” is currently down. It is unclear if it was unpublished in response to the current Facebook dialog between Mr. Williams and animal lovers, or not.

Perhaps people living in the area can reach out to Mr. Williams with alternative options…such as pointing him to a reputable rescue group.

      Agreed.

      I wouldn’t want to be a member of his congregation….. we have fundamental differences in how we value animal lives…..

      He has no business being a clergyman because he has no compassion for other living beings…..

      I hope those 2 dogs can be saved before this heartless POS murders them……

    I spoke with Corinth animal control and asked them if they were going to let this “ungodly” man shoot animals and they said no. I wonder if this guy is really an evangelist. No one can have that cold of a heart and be so cruel as to kill God’s creatures just because they are strays. It says in the bible. Proverbs 12:10 New International Version (NIV)
    10 The righteous care for the needs of their animals,
    but the kindest acts of the wicked are cruel……..
    ALL ANIMALS ARE OURS WHOM GOD INSTRUCTED TO CARE FOR AND PROTECT THEM. I wonder if this guy is just sick and out for attention.

    He is NO man of God, but obviously serves Baphomet, The Adversary, Satan! Jesus would not have killed those poor stray dogs, but would have recognized that they are hungry for food, shelter and LOVE. I’m guessing this “preacher’s” property is probably a dump, in the hood.

    How in the world can you call yourself a man of God when you are planning on murdering innocent, homeless animals.

    I feel that he was only speaking out of anger which we are all guilty of doing. Yes Proverbs 12:10 is a good example of the situation but, he didn’t mean what he said again speaking out of anger. He has found home(s) for the animals also i quote “There will be no hurting dogs today” He had no intention of hurting them. We are all guilty of going on Facebook and speaking out of anger about someone/something! Seriously people you are all making a mountain out of a molehill! No he was not seeing attention he was mad about the dogs getting on his property, sticking with facts not going to say what has not been said. The Animal Shelter here is a freaking joke! They don’t care for or about any animals in Corinth i have a few accounts stating so…. Aspca should getting in contact and take action against the animal shelter here in Corinth! I have had experiences with the animal shelter they put down animals because and they have said this numerous times that they don’t have money to take them in or take care of them so if no one goes there to get a rescue animal for 14 days the put them down!!!! Frank Williams is a good man i know him and i know that he only said this out of anger. I must use these words to make my point “Cast the first stone if you are sinless”!!!!!! Now leave it alone! Live and let live…. Damage has been done he can rewind and redo but he is making up for what he “said” (not did) finding them homes…. Everyone is blowing this up and it’s not something people should be doing that for. That is all i have to say. I am a Christian woman, WE ARE ALL HUMANS, WE ALL MAKE MISTAKES! Good Day To You All!

      Agree our animal shelter is a joke but so many good people here choose to believe otherwise while animals still suffer and die. If this man is true man of God you would think in his position his temper should be a little better under control. The dogs are also Gods creatures and most people would try their best to help them rather than rant and then shoot. Could be God sent those dogs to his door step to test his faith in what he preaches to others. If that’s the case then he failed. “Angels unaware” you never know do you. There are those of us in Corinth that will rescue rain, sleet, snow doesn’t matter if we can help we will. Speaking for myself I’ve many times been angry enough to “shoot” but never the dog just the idiots that caused the situation.

        Hey Bill,
        Just remember you get back what you put out. Why are you defending a jackass who bragged about the murder of animals. Maybe you both penis owner can get together on a Friday night a murder animals together. What’s next on your afenda? Defending some one who hurts xhildren. Just because you have a penis does not make you a man. Protecting the innocent makes a man. Not surprised he’s a preacher..tgey are the worst.

    I would think a preacher would know the words of the Bible. Proverbs 12:10, “The righteous care for the needs of their animals,
    but the kindest acts of the wicked are cruel.” In my opinion his “pride” got in the way of being a decent human being let a lone a half way decent Christian. Shameful.

    THE SCUMBAG PROBABLY MEANT IT AND IS COVERING IT UP SINCE HE PISSED TOO MANY PEOPLE OFF. INSTEAD OF HELPING THE DOGS HE WANTS TO GET RID OF THEM, WHICH IS WHAT SHOULD HAVE HAPPENED TO HIM WHEN IS POS ASS WAS BORN.

    I will take both/all of these dogs happily! Call me 478-456-8764! Please send this message on your Facebook to this man. What upsets me most is a rescue in that state has not stepped up. I am sending this to Rescue Rock NYC as well. I will take the dogs regardless but am an individual. I am going to keep my ungodly comments to myself as Jesus would not appreciate my saying them or writing them about this so called God fearing man.

    Seriously will take these stray dogs. Do not shoot them or dump them at shelter. They will be inhumanely euthanized in a shelter being strays. Call me ASAP 478-456-8764.

    I propose that Frank Williams be put down instead of two innocent dogs. His statements alone prove he is nothing more than a danger – another self serving Evangelist whose total lack of humanity for two defenseless dogs proves he is on the same level as the loser sitting in the White House – under the barrel low.

    And these same hateful, greedy liars hide behind God every day. THEN they sit around and wonder WHY IS CHURCH MEMBERSHIPS DOWN AND CONTINUE TO DWINDLE? This will continue in a downward spiral as long as sadistic, two faced scoundrels like Williams continue to be head of a church. SHAME on YOU for acting like a BARBARIAN toward GOD’S animals. YOU disgust me Williams.

    AS A COMPASSIONATE TRUE HUMAN, WHEN YOU SEE A HOMELESS VOICEKESS YOU HELP THE DOG AND TO SAFETY! THEY ARE HOMELESS, AND ARE HOPING THAT HUMANS ARE KIND ENOUGH TO DO THE RIGHT THING…TO HELP THE DOG. WOULDN’T YOU WANT SOMEONE TO HELP YOU IF YOU WERE HOMELESS, OR DO YOU WANT SOMEONE TO SHOOT YOU INSTEAD BECAUSE YOU ARE HOMELESS. SAME THING!

    What kind of “man of God” would chose to put a bullet in a dog’s head than be bothered to find an humane solution? When God flooded the world what did he decide to save?? THE ANIMALS! Good grief. Where is this man’s brain?

    This is what I wrote to him:

    I heard a disturbing report that you intended to kill some stray dogs. As a Christian, I believe and hope that our love towards humans will also extend to those helpless creatures created by the same God. Professed love for our brothers and sisters, if not extended to those the Lord has put on this planet for us to protect is of not much use. These stray dogs never asked to be put in their sad, unfortunate position. The infinitely better option would be to engage in trying to find them loving homes. Thank you for reading.

    Doesn’t practice the Golden Rule does he? He’s no man of the cloth, Jesus would not kill animals just because he didn’t like them on his property.

    He says he is a man of God. You need to read the bible. Thou shalt not KILL. That also means for animals. You will not be going to heaven. You will go straight to HELL.
