    Kentucky church bans interracial couples

    A small church in Pike County, Kentucky has voted to ban interracial couples from most church activities “to promote greater unity among the church body.”
    Racism still lives, and the Bible does have something to say about that too:

    This ministry, of course, is discredited. You can tell, biblically speaking, if something is good by the fruit it bears, and this fruit is rotten to the core. The members of this church, who have placed a stumbling block to salvation in the way of this couple, will bear the shame for what they have done, come judgment day.

    I mean the vote was 9-6, so it seems like even the Church isn't unified on that, so I don't understand how this decision helped unify the church body.

    Cases like this will not get sufficient attention from the very people who think racism is overwith, and we should not be continuing to form policy that stops it from happening.

    Without those protections, places like KY will go right back to the way things were during segregation.

    well, we can't interfere with a church's tenets. we can only condemn them.

    Yeah, but then they'll just start waving that damn pesky ol' 1st Amendment, as if it's the law of the land, or something.

    Your first step would be to get rid of that.

    Before we go totally ape over this, we have to ask how many interracial couples were even going to this church, to begin with. No doubt they wouldn't have been welcomed with open arms, even before they pulled this crap.

    Pulled what crap? Desiring to worship God? Who put the stumbling block in their way?

    The crap of banning interracial couples. Try and keep up with your own thread, please.

    Is there proof in the Bible that interracial couples should not be allowed to worship Christ in a Church of parishoners? If not, then it has nothing to do with the First Amendment, and the only thing the Church has to stand on is the private property aspect of this; and even then, I would sue if I were that couple.

    Meh, they should be free to do so. It's idiotic and will cause people to go to a different church; so it only really hurts them.
