Mother says atheist group saved her Christmas

(Continued)

CHICKASHA, Okla. —

A member of Bible Baptist Church, Sheyla Clemmons, went by Wait’s house later that day to apologize.

"She brought us a bunch of Christmas stuff," said Wait. "She said they shouldn't have done that and that there are no 'rules.'"

Bible Baptist Head Pastor Tim Hayes said he and his church members attempted to go to Wait's house five times Christmas night, but were never able to get in touch with her. He said he intends to continue his efforts to contact her.

"I'm sure she has a very legitimate reason for feeling the way she does," said Hayes. "I regret what happened. We are certainly not in the business of creating that type of atmosphere on Christmas for any individual."

Hayes said he plans investigate the incident further.

Details for this story were reported by The Chickasha Express-Star in Chickasha, Okla.
