Ina Garrett (pictured) was arrested after she hit her pastor over the head with a Bible over his refusal to give up his position at Mount Zion Baptist Church in Selmer, Tennessee, WLOX reports. Garrett, who admitted to hitting the pastor on the head, used the “Good Word” pretty well, too.

The pastor, Leon Taylor, showed WLOX photos of his head with welts he allegedly suffered from Garrett’s Bible-thumping attack. “He’s got the demon in him,” Garrett told the television station. Garrett’s beef with her pastor is based on an on-going beef she and other members of Mount Zion have with Taylor. Last year, members of the church voted to have Taylor removed as pastor but he refused to leave.

Here is more on this bizarre story:
Deacon Robert Shumpert, Ina Garrett and other members say they decided they did not like Taylor and wanted him out of the 30 member church. The pastor says the church members who wanted him out were disruptive.
“The next Sunday we went right back and the door was locked,” church member Ann Prather said.
