Mark 8:31 -
"31 Jesus then began to teach his disciples. He taught them that the Son of Man must suffer many things. He taught them that the elders would not accept him. The chief priests and the teachers of the law would not accept him either. He must be killed and after three days rise again. 32 He spoke clearly about this."
On Monday, November 23, 2017, Plaxton became embroiled in a racially-charged dispute on his Facebook
page in which a man seemingly randomly attacked Plaxton for voting for Donald Trump. What followed was a tit-for-tat in which Plaxton was repeatedly called racist, repeatedly denied being racist, and culminated in Plaxton calling the offending man a "spic" and telling him to "go back to Mexico". The man never indicated that he was hispanic or from Mexico - the only thin link to any Spanish heritage being the man's last name. Plaxton's racial tirade seemed misplaced, and certainly to someone, seemed offensive enough to report to Facebook.
Plaxton was banned not moments after making the offending remark and was absent for 3 days. Many noticed that this was not entirely unlike Jesus Christ resigning to the grave for 3 days and then returning, living again. It's seen by some that in calling this man a racial slur, Plaxton indeed bore all of our sin.
During Plaxton's Facebook exile, he was in frequent contact with his friends. Plaxton expressed little remorse for what he did, and even went so far as to say that "all lives matter". Plaxton also found a renewed interest in the Kennedy assassination during this time, due
perhaps in part to newly declassified documents and the
anniversary of Kennedy's death coinciding with his ban.
Plaxton's "welcome back" post, given at around 8 pm on Thanksgiving day,
was not the apology he originally promised he would make, but was instead a
picture of a woman screaming over a turkey (pictured).
