Man Who Claimed to Be KKK Member Arrested for Threatening to Burn Down Baptist Church in Kentucky

A man who reportedly claimed to be a member of the Ku Klux Klan has been arrested for allegedly threatening to burn down a Southern Baptist Church in western Kentucky.

Dustin Wright, 24, of Calvert City, was charged Wednesday (Nov. 1) with terroristic threatening and taken to the local jail.

Charles Frazier, pastor of Zion’s Cause Baptist Church in Benton, said Wright came to the church on Wednesday asking for money. When the church secretary offered the man food instead, Frazier said, the man became belligerent, telling her he was a member of the Klan and that he would return and burn down the church.

“We have to take threats to our church seriously,” said Frazier, who has been nominated for president of the Kentucky Baptist Convention, which will hold its annual meeting Nov. 14. Frazier also is a member of the Southern Baptist Convention Executive Committee.
