Conservative pastor in a whole lot of hot water after sending gross email to journalist

Talking about being baptized with the "Holy Ghost and fire."

A Michigan pastor has been hearing a whole lot from the public recently after sending an email to journalist Sarah Jeong—which was then posted by Jeong on her Twitter account. In the email, the christian (with a little “c”) David Muns threatens Jeong with genital mutilation, calling her a “bitter Asian woman.” The entirety of his statement will be discussed below, and includes graphic language, but those are the broad strokes.

Muns was supposedly responding to a meme that attributed a fake quote to Jeong, from her time on The New York Times editorial board. Someone (or someones) spent a good amount of time coming up with some wildly awful things to say about white folks and white children, and then attributed them all to Jeong. These quotes were debunked back in 2018, but Muns, not much for reading deeply into things, clearly missed the memo.

Journalist Vs. Macomb Pastor: He Regrets 'Terrible' Email, Will Apologize From Pulpit
September 17, 2020, 11:10 AM

Christian Life Church worshipers in Macomb Township will hear their pastor's self-confession Sunday.

Rev. David Muns embarrassed himself with a vile message from his church address to a female journalist about something he mistakenly accused her of posting. The writer, 32-year-old Sarah Jeong of Portland, shared a screenshot and called him out in a tweet that has been shared nearly 33,000 times.

"I will first apologize to them [congregants] for responding to something that I should've let go," the 59-year-old clergyman tells WDIV. "My response is terrible."

Email sent in response to quote attributed to journalist, later identified as fake

MACOMB TOWNSHIP, Mich. – A Macomb Township pastor is facing backlash online over an email he sent to a journalist in response to a quote attributed to the woman that was later identified as fake.

The email Rev. Dave Muns sent to journalist Sarah Jeong was posted on Jeong’s Twitter account Tuesday afternoon.

“How about if we took all the little bitter Asian woman and had a lottery and cut their (explicit) like the Muslims do. Not a very classy position is it, neither is your trashy little bitter personality towards white men. Only in a world where journalism is controlled by brain dead Liberals do you people even have jobs,” read Muns' email.

The pastor was reportedly responding to a meme sent to him with a quote attributed to Jeong, who is a former member of the New York Times editorial board, which said there should be a castration lottery for white men.

. . .

On Wednesday afternoon, the pastor reached out to Local 4 to share his apology to Jeong -- as his email account was suspended amid the incident.

“Ms. Jeong ... I understand my email was off base, as I have been informed that it is not something you said. Ms. Jeong, when I read it and having prior knowledge to your position on the white race I just assumed it was an accurate post -- bad mistake. For months we have been juggling peace within our country between races and (with) pastoring an inter-racial church, that (post) just threw me over the top. My attempt to reverse the roles in my email was wrong and out of frustration and anger as I viewed the meme as gas on a fire.

"Yes I am human and should never have assumed it was true or gone to such extremes to make a point. My attitude was wrong and I believe a bit fueled due to what I’ve read of yours in the past. Again, a bad mistake. I am able to successfully pastor a mixed church because of my strong passion and beliefs that we’re all just humans living in different kinds of bodies trying to live life. When I saw the post that was fired at me in a taunting fashion, it hit my deepest nerve. I hope you receive my sincerest apologies and I truly hope you have grown beyond your frustration of us white folks as we are all works in progress.

2. He keeps saying...

that his off the rails racist rant was some how caused by what she has written. His other trope is to mention how he is a successful pastor of an inter-racial church. Seems to be his way of saying he can't be racist he has a black friend.

3. They can do anything they want ... sin, that's ok, God will forgive them as

long as they claim sorrow and apologize, all is well ... until the next go 'round! No problem.

4. Mr Muns, you are an asshole.

And your so-called "apology" was typical of repug assholes like you. You should go crawl in a hole somewhere and repent of your countless sins.

6. He's not offering an apology. He is pushing an excuse.

8. Could that asshole "pastor" look any more white?

Probably has a black SS uniform in a closet at his home.

9. In a sane world, no one would show up at his next "service"..

but in this one, he'll probably get invited to the White House for a meet and greet with Mango Mussolini. And maybe the pillow guy.
