Gulnare Free Will Baptist Church bans interracial couple after Stella Harville brings African-born fiancé, Ticha Chikuni, to church services last June.
SHAME: Gulnare Free Will Baptist Church bans interracial couples from joining the church in a 9-6 vote last Sunday. The resolution says the Pike County, KY, church “does not condone interracial marriage,” according the Fox News. The genius who crafted this ridiculous resolution is Melvin Thompson who claims he’s not racist. Um, really? I beg to differ.
The vote by members on 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.
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.” Source
The tipping point came for this back woods church when Stella Harville brought her African-born fiancé, Ticha Chikuni, to church last June. You see, some of the members of the church just couldn’t help themselves. Their true racist colors had to come to the surface. The reality is that all the decent members of Gulnare Free Will Baptist Church should exercise their free will and walk right out. Such division has no place in a church, of all places.
Seems like some people are just stuck on stupid. Unfortunately some people would rather divide, all the while portraying themselves as true believers in Christ. The reality is that they are no different than the Scribes and Pharisees, pretentious and just full of sh*t. My God is an inclusive one, who made us all. The role of the church isn’t to divide based on race, color or creed, but to welcome all through its doors, even the vilest offender.
