Church Member Seeks To Ban Interracial Couples, Says He Is Not Racist

How very Christian of you!


A tiny church in rural Kentucky has voted to ban interracial couples from joining its congregation, pitting members against each other in an argument over race.

Members at the Gulnare Free Will Baptist Church in Kentucky voted on Sunday on the resolution, which says the church "does not condone interracial marriage".

The church member who crafted the resolution, Melvin Thompson, said he is not racist and called the matter an "internal affair".

Dean Harville, the church's secretary, disagreed - he said the resolution came after his daughter visited the church this summer with her boyfriend from Africa.

These guys dont surprise me anymore... Hypocrisy seems to be ingrained in their system so much that its abnormal not to be a hypocrite..

IF they are going to pass this resolution, the least they could do is pass another resolution for removing the words 'free will' from the name of the Church.
