Music pastor who frequents Hamburger Mary's resigns

Restaurant features entertainment with female impersonators

Headline Goes Here

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The music pastor of Arlington Baptist Church has resigned in a dispute over his choice of eating establishments.

Shannon Wallace is a fan of Hamburger Mary's in St Nicholas, which has live entertainment on the weekend featuring female impersonators.

Church members say that decision by Wallace to resign came after the pastor of the church learned that Wallace had eaten at the restaurant.

Neither Wallace (pictured, right) nor church leaders would comment on the situation.

Managers at the restaurant say Wallace and his wife were there to take part in a charity event. The general manager of the restaurant says she's outraged over this entire controversy.

"We are not here just to support the gay lifestyle. We are here for anyone, whoever they are," said Chef Z Zimmerman, of Hamburger Mary's. "I'm outraged, if this is what happened. You should not be fired based on where you attend."

Some of Wallace's supporters aren't happy about the situation and are planning a protest at the church next weekend.
