Kentucky church votes to ban interracial couples - Yahoo! News
Can't say I'm surprised, really. This country seems to be regressing big time the last few years.
Wow. Just wow. I guess the fact that it makes headlines is kind of a good sign, if this were normal we'd never hear about it.
So 15 people voted, and 40 people left as they were ashamed of making their voice heard one way or another? Those who left could be in either court imo, I would say they were more than likely in favour adn don't want to admit it though, as they could have probably had it stricken otherwise.
Either way 40 people need to grow a pair, and reaction, even from the other parishes is negative.
In a way it reminds me of a recent thing where black communities were effectively calling for segregated schools (undoing the past 40 years or so). I can't find any info currently, but I seem to recall them getting it...
I lol'd @ the fact that the area is known for the infamous Hatfield- McCoy feud.
Kentucky church bans interracial marriage | The Sideshow - Yahoo! News
Leave it to dad to have the best explanation.
But this is a prime example of how backwards we are becoming though. Some people seem to want to live in 1950 forever.......
A church arguing that two consenting adults shouldn't be allowed to be married? This kind of story has been discussed here so many times on SS.org in the past 5 years....
I wish I could make a town where we vote to keep churches out.
^^ Do you somehow believe that makes you better? You are just sinking to the same level.
WWJO - Who would Jesus Ostracize?
I'd like to see us on the same level.
And, by "same level," I mean that any group which has tax exemption shouldn't be able to campaign to remove someone's civil rights. As soon as a group attempts to override the interests of the state in maintaining equal rights, the state shouldn't give such a group an advantage in terms of shielding their income.
Is that just the pain meds talking? Nope. I worked to have a group's tax exemption removed, and to have my previous state of residency repeal and amend the tax code, to stop neo-Nazis from being able to use tax exemption as a way to save money.
It's important enough that I just typed all that one handed, as I'm back for Round 2 of "Operation Slice, Dice and Eventual Shred".... *laugh*
No, where do you get that from?
My point is that its the most bogus B.S. I have ever heard....kind of like voting to keep churches out
Yeah, there's no rationalizing this. It's racist as fuck, and it digusts me to see people perverting the message of Christianity for their hateful ends.
Gotcha, it was tongue in cheek. That works then, I follow now.
Explorer: I have nothing to dispute with your points, I agree.
I think it's great that the church did this. Now people know how the church feels about such things and can make an informed decision on whether to attend service there.
^So much this.
There are many times when a group tries to hide its hate behind rationalizations. People are fortunate that this group made a mistake in revealing itself and its hatefulness.
I figure the church would be happy that anyone is even bothering to get married anymore. Oh well, they just lost some business.
