Dan Smith is the senior pastor of United Church of Gallatin, TN who was arrested in 2009 for driving under the influence of alcohol and had to step down from ministry but recently came back to plant this church.

During a recent sermon, Smith called out a mother in the congregation during his preaching and asked the ushers to “show her where the nursery is” because he “doesn’t want to struggle with a child the whole time.”

The grandmother posted her frustration with the debacle — which was recorded and apparently not even edited out — on her Facebook page, writing,

My daughter and her friend walked out of United Church in Gallatin today after she was pointed out and embarrassed in front of a congregation. The baby in question was 15 months old and just made a peep. Was not crying. As you can see for yourself in this video. How can this pastor call himself a man of God and treat a member of your congregation that way and dont care if anyone is offended. I don’t know what is worse, the embarrassing of a member or the fact he did not care if he offended anyone. So sad in a society where we need to bring our young people to God and they are chased off because they have a young child. I’m sorry, but kids make some noise, And this wasn’t a noise that was distracting. Now, if she was crying, I can see a problem. My daughter was pretty upset and disappointed because she was looking for a church and found this one to be of her liking. Sadly enough, she is back on her quest to find a church that she can feel at home in and raise her baby with the word of God.

The embarrassing event seemed to have caused a stir in the congregation when Smith had to stop once again to justify his actions. This is not a pastor, but a charlatan who isn’t concerned about the family, but himself.
