A North Charlotte Church is apologizing tonight after a senior pastor asked that "whites only" greet church-goers. An African-American pastor sent the email to volunteers at freedom house church on Salome Church Road. Church leaders say she was trying to match the diversity of greeters to the congregation's. But they agree -- it crossed a line. Freedom House Church sent us this statement.
It reads in part:
"She made an error in judgment in requesting all white greeters at the front door, going overboard in placing emphasis on any one race over another in trying to highlight diversity within the greeting team.She admits this was a grave lapse in judgment and is sincerely sorry for her actions."
