    Post Kentucky Church Bans Interracial Couples From Joining Congregation

    An all-white church in America's rural South has voted to ban interracial couples from joining.
    Members of the Gulnare Free Will Baptist Church in Kentucky voted for the resolution after their Sunday service, which says the church 'does not condone interracial marriage'.
    The church member who crafted the resolution, Melvin Thompson, claims he is not racist and called the matter an 'internal affair'.
    '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.'
    Church secretary Dean Harville disagrees, saying the resolution came after his daughter visited the church this summer with her boyfriend from Africa.
    Stella Harville and Ticha Chikuni — now her fiance — visited the church in June and Chikuni sang a song for the congregation. The two had visited the church before.
    Mr Harville said he was counting the church offering after a service in early August when he was approached by Thompson, who told him Harville's daughter and her boyfriend were no longer allowed to sing at the church.
    'If he's not racist, what is this?' Mr Harville said.

    The vote by members last Sunday was 9-6, Mr Harville said. It was taken after the service, which about 35 to 40 people attended. Mr Harville said many people left or declined to vote.
    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'.
    Stella Harville, a 24-year-old graduate student at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in Indiana, called the vote 'hurtful'.
    'I think part of me is still in shock and trying to process what's been going on the past few days,' she said. 'I really hope they overturn this.'
    Last night the church's pastor, Stacy Stepp, said that he was against the resolution. Mr Stepp said the denomination's regional conference will begin working on resolving the issue this weekend.
    The National Association of Free Will Baptists in Tennessee has no official position on interracial marriage for its 2,400 churches worldwide, executive secretary Keith Burden said.

    The denomination believes the Bible is inerrant and local churches have autonomy over decision-making.
    'It's been a non-issue with us,' Mr Burden said, adding that many interracial couples attend Free Will Baptist churches.

    He said the Pike County church acted on its own. Mr Burden said the association can move to strip the local church of its affiliation with the national denomination if it's not resolved.
    'Hopefully it is corrected quickly,' Mr Burden said.

    I wish the taboo on 'racist' would be lifted. People act as if anything borderline 'racist' is the plague and therefore are afraid or ashamed to say they want to preserve the racial genotype of their community. This is doubly as insulting when it's one of our women being lost to other races, as it's historically been men who have protected their women from invading men, and mens' ability to protect the community from invaders has been neutered by the 'racist' taboo. Taking control of a group's women and mingling lineages is how a a group is permanently conquered by invaders.

    A lot of people might say "only in Kentucky" well, that's why I moved here. They are not afraid or ashamed to show their true feelings. As far as stripping them of their charter, or whatever, I hope they do, and I hope they see other churches doing the same.

    So, in the land of freedom for everything, a resolution by the members of a church bearing Free Will in their name, is told that they cannot go about that matter according to that free will because it's "racist"?

    It's funny how it is racist to force black / hispanic / whatever minority to accept other races except their own in their clubs, churches etc, and it's also racist when whites want to be among themselves, decided by their own free will... hmm

    Long live the Double Standard, eh

    Well Stella, maybe you rather want to rethink whom you chose as fiance and whether that is actually a good choice. Mixed children have a whole range of problems with their identity and therefore with their lives, and this has absolutely nothing to do with discrimination. It is a problem that derives from mixing ethnic backgrounds and the result is a child unrooted from both cultures, and the fault for the troubles of the child lies alone with the irresponsible acting parents of that mixed child. Is the egoism to chose "whomever you want" as father of your future children really worth the psychological disorders you are responsible for?

    And if you "chose whomever you want", and force your own irresponsible tolerance onto your family, your church, your community and everyone who has to deal with you and your deranged children and other-racial boyfriend, shouldnt you then be tolerant enough too to accept the decision of your church NOT to accept you and your irresponsible choice any longer? That would be tolerant. But you arent. You are intolerant and egoistic and in fact, anti-white (and that is really racist - and stupid) and want others to cheer you on top for it.

    No, congrats to the church to make that decision, and I really do hope they stick to it. Go looking for another church where you'll be accepted, but stop forcing each and everyone to accept your irresponsibility.
    Ein Leben ist nichts, deine Sprosse sind alles
    Aller Sturm nimmt nichts, weil dein Wurzelgriff zu stark ist
    und endet meine Frist, weiss ich dass du noch da bist
    Gefürchtet von der Zeit, mein Baum, mein Stamm in Ewigkeit

    This man has no self-respect, he should be ashamed of his daughter choosing to be a coon's ho. And by the prospect of niglet grandchildren. And btw, that n*gger is coming to the US on a marriage visa & will over the years bring several relatives to the US through family reunification clauses in US immigration law.

    The Gulnare church is located in Eastern Kentucky, a region with very little racial diversity or even White diversity, most of the residents being of Old American stock.

    People ignore the fact that the Obamas were members until 2008 of a church that proclaimed itself as "a congregation which is Unashamedly Black and Unapologetically Christian... Our roots in the Black religious experience and tradition are deep, lasting and permanent. We are an African people, and remain "true to our native land," the mother continent, the cradle of civilization. God has superintended our pilgrimage through the days of slavery, the days of segregation, and the long night of racism. It is God who gives us the strength and courage to continuously address injustice as a people, and as a congregation. We constantly affirm our trust in God through cultural expression of a Black worship service and ministries which address the Black Community." Doesn't sound very welcoming to White folks.

    Congratulations to the Congregation for taking a stand.

    It used to be standard in South Africa. And if I recall it correctly. It used to be pretty accepted practice in America as well. Wasn't there even a university that banned mixed couples on their campus?!

    Kentucky Church Bans "Interracial" Couple from Congregation

    Apparently a small rural Baptist church in another part of my home state caused "an uproar" because they voted to ban mixed-race couples from their congregation, in this case a foreign negro from Africa, miscegenating with a rotund white woman of that church:

    http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5h-GqwBcpzkP52bXMGVRsN17r3Icw?docId=52139c6 6b0194f9abe611181e8090b16

    After uproar, Ky. church revisits interracial ban
    By DYLAN LOVAN, Associated Press – 4 minutes ago
    LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — When Stella Harville brought her black boyfriend to her family's all-white church in rural Kentucky, she thought nothing of it. She and Ticha Chikuni worshipped there whenever they were in town, and he even sang before the congregation during one service.
    Then in August, a member of Gulnare Free Will Baptist Church told Harville's father that Chikuni couldn't sing there anymore. And last Sunday, in a moment that seems from another time, church members voted 9-6 to bar mixed-race couples from joining the congregation.
    Poor Boobla-Boobla Chikuni didn't get to sing in church
    "Yet Thomas Jefferson’s interest in the Saxon heritage went far beyond matters of philology. He held that the forward movement of British settlement in North America was a continuation of the original migration of Hengist and Horsa. It was all part of the vigorous expansion of a superior group of people. Jefferson even went so far as to suggest that the form of government being adopted in the emerging United States represented a restoration of the sublime Anglo-Saxon principles..."
