Pastor Not Affiliated With Allen Group

In your Oct. 4 edition, you printed an article entitled "Local Black Clergy Plan Monthly Jaunts to Help Sen. Allen" (Street Talk). The article stated that I had agreed to serve on a committee of African-American clergy persons to advise Sen. George Allen on issues regarding race relations.

I vehemently repudiate and deny agreeing to be involved in any such group. I was not once contacted by the Rev. Joe Ellison to get my endorsement of the group or the printing of the article. Also, I was never contacted by reporters from Style Weekly to verify the information prior to going to print.

Therefore, I am asking that Style Weekly publicly retract all inferences that I am or will be involved with this committee.
