IF A MINORITY OF THIS CONGREGATION COULD REFUSE TO HAVE THE CHURCH MARRY A BLACK COUPLE
Imagine what they had done when faced with marrying a same sex couple.
(AP) JACKSON, Miss. - A Mississippi couple says the church where they planned to get married turned them away because they are black.Charles and Te'Andrea Wilson say they had set the date and mailed invitations, but the day before their wedding they say they got bad news from the pastor of predominantly white First Baptist Church of Crystal Springs: Some members of the church complained about the black couple having a wedding there.
Now, the pastor didn’t do the right thing in my opinion, because he knew all along that it was wrong to give in to those racist church members and performed the ceremony elsewhere anyhow. But what this pastor doesn’t realize is that he is going to be fired anyhow and it would have been better if he had stood for what is right in the first place.
Only in America…we have still a long ways to go.
