True Story: This is what happened to my son.

Gulnare Free Will Baptist Church: Kentucky Congregation Overturns Ban On Interracial Couples.

From Huffington Post: "Stacy Stepp, pastor of the Gulnare Free Will Baptist Church in Pike County, told The Associated Press that the vote by nine people last week was declared null and void after it was determined that new bylaws can't run contrary to local, state or national laws. He said the proposal was discriminatory, therefore it couldn't be adopted."

Jesus didn't change their minds, but public pressure and the law did.  Hmph!  Jesus must be disgusted.  I am. 

My son Bub, pictured in his younger days on the right of this blog, joined a Freewill Baptist church in Hixson, TN about three years ago.  The minister said that several members left the church when Bub started attending.  Certain people did not want to worship with him and they claim to be Christians.

That fact is that many churches of all kinds are segregated and it does not have to be that way, but it is.
