From that 2nd article - some humor:
****ing racist religious pricks - oh - but if you're dead then it's no big deal because we're not hurting people's feelings anymore.". . . parties of such marriages will not be received as members, nor will they be used in worship services and other church functions, with the exception being funerals."
I'm glad this stupid church did this to their selves - maybe they'll be shunned by their community.
