Local Baptist Preacher Says 'Otwells' View, Different Than His

Responses, to a story we ran last week, have been pouring in.  W.N. Otwell, the senior pastor of Heritage Baptist Church in Mount Enterprise spoke out in support of a Forbes article warning men to not marry career women.

We got hundreds of passionate emails and phone calls on both sides of the debate, but one call in particular stuck out. It was from the Dr. Frank Battle, the senior pastor of a church in Tyler that happens to have the same name as Otwell's church. He wants to make it clear that his church's views are different.

"There's a down side to one spouse not being home, but that's not the issue that I'm concerned about. I'm more concerned about the perception that people might have from what he said, that this is a view that is... he's the minority on this issue.  It is not my church's view," says Battle.
