Kentucky Church Bans Interracial Couples
« on: Dec 02 11 06:58 »
Yeah, nothin' racist about this, no siree, not a thing. Nope nope nope.


The Gulnare Freewill Baptist Church voted 9 to 6 on Sunday  to ban interracial couples from church services or functions, with the exception of funerals. 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.

Stella Harville, 24, and her fiance Ticha Chikuni, 28, are the couple that prompted the church's actions. Harville is white and Chikuni is black.

The resolution says anyone is welcome to attend services, but interracial couples could not become members or be "used in worship services or other church functions".

 "I am not racist. I will tell you that. I am not prejudiced against any race of people, have never in my lifetime spoke evil about a race," said Thompson, the church's former pastor who stepped down earlier this year.

"That's what this is being portrayed as, but it is not."

See, we're not racists...we're just going to discriminate against you on the basis of your skin color!

Shit, if this isn't "racism", then I don't know the definition of the word.
The real trouble with reality is that there's no background music.
