Arrest warrant issued for Don Armstrong

KKTV in Colorado Springs, CO reports that the police have issued a warrant for the arrest of Donald Armstrong, who left the Episcopal Church for the more theologically conservative Church of Nigeria, for failure to appear at a hearing on Wednesday.

A local priest, accused of embezzling money from his church, is now wanted again by police, according to court documents. Father Donald Armstrong didn't show up for court Wednesday and an arrest warrant has been issued. It was his first court appearance since he was indicted by a grand jury last week.
11 News stopped by St. George’s Anglican Church, where Armstrong works now, to ask him why he didn’t show up for court. A church worker said he wasn’t there, even though his car was still in the parking lot.

A minute later, his secretary told us Father Armstrong was at the church, but was on the phone. When asked if he forgot about his court date she replied, “No” and went onto say that this was all a misunderstanding.

WAIT! HOLD IT! There must be a mistake. Archbishop Peter Akinola of CANA/Nigeria has instructed us earlier that it´s the CHILDREN of Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual and Transgender Episcopalians/Anglicans that are HOOLIGANS!

There must be a mix up, quick, contact Martyn Minns!
