I always knew that there were stupid individuals in the world. & even stupid groups. I mean, with the Internet, they're now impossible to avoid. But I guess I was still naive enough to think that stuff like this was still going on. I mean openly, in public, from a group that doesn't openly say that they're racists.

To be fair to my home state, its a tiny (40 member) backwoods church, probably with a median age of about 70, and the policy was adopted by a vote of 9-6. I live in an integrated subdivision and there are lots of multi-racial families in my town, so please don't judge the whole state by nine ignorant bigots.

Another article clarifies a few things.

[Link: www.cbsnews.com...]

The vote by members last Sunday was 9-6, Harville said. It was taken after the service, which about 35 to 40 people attended. Harville said many people left or declined to vote.

Seems this Thompson fellow has an agenda, no matter how much he protests.

Nice looking couple, btw.

Yes, and actually most of those people are against this so it seems the new pastor will hopefully be able to overturn it. I found the article confusing because it seems to say the old pastor passed this policy just as he was leaving?

It appears that he still attends the church, and was so offended about having a mixed race couple performing there he pushed this policy through. Then he has the nerve to claim he's not a racist.

I'm waiting for the Wingnuts to take this up as an issue of religious freedom...
