I didn't know Channel 33 had such a tricked up newscast.

Greedy church. Give us royalties or we can't survive. Maybe Oral Roberts gave them some advice.

If you really want to save their souls, put a fence around the reunion grounds to keep the baptists from drinking and gossiping, not the gas well.

Looking at the map, it appears they have access via the public, paved road, but they want a private driveway.
I do like how the oil company spokesman defended their stance by using the example of "a mother having a medical emergency, hitting the well, and causing an explosion", which has more impact(!) than "some spare Christian dude texting his wife about choir practice running long, hitting the well, and sending him to his e-ternal ree-ward"

Victory is not so innocent. Using a drone to harass the laborers who put up the fence by buzzing them. WWJD

Maybe the church should have read the lease agreement before they signed it.

Big Oil versus the Lord God Almighty? Anybody want to bet how this comes out? Ask Pharaoh when he tried to block a road to my Children.

Worried about high speeds on a street not designed for it? Easy answer: Rumble Strips and Speed Humps. Problem solved.

Guess someone at Victory needs to revisit their "Love thy Neighbor" campaign as seen on the Church web page.

Victory's fireworks igniting the well and endangering the community, are a bigger threat than the fence.

This church sounds more like the reunion meets David Koresh

Sounds like a lot of you just have trouble with the church spending money on fireworks. I heard that the money spent on fireworks allows them to collect 5 times that for charity.

I don't have a problem with that.

Also, the oil company "asked" if they could put a well on their land.

They did not ask me. The told me it was going in (all 3 wells on my 10 acres) whether i liked it or not. No "asking involved with oil companies.

No, I do not attend that church.

Think your property taxes are high? Guess who pays the property taxes on the ground where those wells sit and the pipelines run?

Sounds as if the oil company is only protecting themselves. If the road is paved, then people will be driving faster. If something happens and someone runs into the wellsite, who do you think they will come after and try to sue?

I call BS on the oil company "asking" to put an oil well on the land. Unless the church owns the mineral rights, there was no asking.

Greedy oil companies.

I have never attended that church.

Shooting fireworks near a gas well is a no no and you could have called John Wiley Price and had a protest at fat cat oil.

The church really should have done research on the legalities of the oil company before they made themselves look like fools.

From reading the WC Messenger article, sounds as if the church is not wanting to work with the company. The article mentions that the company didn't want them to build the baseball field right next to the well, but they did. They also put a waterline close to the well against the company's wishes.

Now that the company is doing what they need to do for safety, the church is becoming big bullies. They aren't getting their way, so they are using the drone to harass the workers and then giving out the phone number so that members can harass the company.

Churches acting like this give real churches a bad name!

2:47 for the win.
The well owner Now owns the pice of land and prolly will from now on. The church is the one that has been trespassing all along .
Think of it this way. Let's say the owner wants to use their paved driveway in front of the church to drive a water truck to and from the well every Sunday morning just about time church was starting .

Many of you are missing the point, and you're obviously not doing any type of research, as you're stating false statements. You also complain of fireworks, which are not shot near that well, yet I'll bet you've enjoyed those fireworks a time or two. And rather than take both sides into consideration, you take it as face value that the oil company is really concerned for safety. If that were true, then why haven't they helped, assisted or even offered to tend to the upkeep of the dirt road all these years when it washed out, or had to be grated?

Mr. Mike Honcho said...

The well should be permanently fenced in a rectangle defined by the anchors located around the well-site. This is typically a LARGE rectangle. There should be ZERO public access into this fenced area. Access into the well via a lease cannot be obstructed.

Looking at the overheads, that property is a mess. There is no way I would have built a baseball field in that location. Terrible investment for the space used and is going to cause issues down the road with that well. The first time the oil company decides to rework, recomplete and frack... LOL, there are going to be some unhappy people.

Here's another issue...North Washburn runs north and South and has always been a dead end street. There is a sign at the end of the street clearly stating that. Victory owns a little strip of land that joins North Washburn right at the dead end. Without asking permission, they put in a fancy electric gate and kept it open all the time several years ago. People started going down North Washburn and through the gate and across the Victory parking lot to get to 380. s speeding down North Washburn doing it. Neighbors complained several years ago and there was a Decatur City Council meeting. Pastor Bates was there and a bunch of Victory people all dressed in matching Tshirts. The North Washburn folks told the city council that people and delivery trucks were speeding down North Washburn and the City Council told Pastor Bates that gate was supposed to be locked because North Washburn was a dead end street.Pastor Bates said could it only be open on Sundays and Wednesday nights for the church folks and the City agreed to that. It has now been OPEN ALL THE TIME for a couple of years. So, Victory folks need to "Love Their Neighbors" on North Washburn and Pastor Bates needs to slow down on North Washburn and keep his word and obey the city law and keep the gate shut. Psalm 89:34- 1John 2:5.
