Shotgun weddings were once all the rage in the southern states. Anytime a guy got a gal “in a family way” he might have needed a little persuasion to marry his partner.
Unfortunately, this was not the case at the St. James United Methodist Church in Goose Creek, South Carolina. A man, not intent on getting his daughter married pointed a shotgun at the choir and robbed them.
Who knows? Maybe he needed the money for flowers for his own daughter’s wedding.
