A North Carolina Sheriff sent letters to the registered sex offenders in his county, telling them they were no longer welcome in the community’s sanctuaries.

According to the Washington Times, Sheriff Danny Millsaps’ letter says that they are only allowed to attend Sunday church services at the county jail.

He cited an existing law that prevents offenders from being within 300 feet of premises where minors are supervised as the reason.

Not all ministers are on board with shunning sex offenders. One local preacher says the protection of children and the prayers of the paroled are not mutually exclusive.

We want to know what you think.

Do you agree with the sheriff that sex offenders should be kept away from churches? Or, do you think that they should be able to seek salvation on Sundays?
