Kentucky Church Shows Its True Color
A small Pike County church has voted not to accept interracial couples as members or let them take part in some worship activities.
Sheesh, wonder what the pastor's vestments are? White robe and hood??
In early November, Thompson proposed the church go on record saying that while all people were welcome to attend public worship services there, the church did not condone interracial marriage, according to a copy of the recommendation supplied by the Harvilles.
The proposal also said "parties of such marriages will not be received as members, nor will they be used in worship services" or other church functions, with the exception of funerals.
Thankfully, the community at large is critical of this repugnant stand.
