The Star-Telegram reported this week that Clyde Downs, 48, of Arlington was senior pastor of the New Harvest Missionary Baptist Church in the Stop Six neighborhood, a position he had held for six years. The newspaper got the information from church’s website.
But Thursday, the Rev. John Reed said Downs resigned in January.
Reed declined to say why Downs resigned.
“He made a mistake, and he’ll have to answer for that,” Reed said. “But that doesn’t stop him from being a good man. We’re not going to turn our back on him because he is human.”
