    This is not English, but a valid construction in Ebonics.

    Lexicographer FAIL.
    The sentence in Ebonics would be “Sinners be welcome”.

    I agree with Anonymous. Also, it’s not “Ebonics,” it’s “Black English”πŸ˜€ …

    …or African American Vernacular English, perhaps?

    I like “Black English” better. Especially now that ‘black’ is politically correct once again.

    I dunno… our text for Nature and History of English probably just chose “Black English” since “Ebonics” seems somewhat dated and forced ;P .

    there’s no fail here
    “sinners” is a surname
    try replacing it with “smithers” or “woods”

    May I just say, chacharles, what kind of last name is Sinners in the first place?

    And, if I had that name, I wouldn’t go near a church.

    A church with Michael Jordan as pastor can use whatever kind of grammar that they want.

    “A church with Michael Jordan as pastor can use whatever kind of grammar that they want.”

    Nice.

    If “Sinners” was my surname, I’d go in all the churches. -_-
