Small Ky. church votes against interracial couples from joining their congregation

Small Kentucky church took a stand as they voted to ban interracial couples from joining their congregation. And guess what it did? Causes dissension within “God’s house” against congregates concerning this matter. The church member who crafted the resolution, Melvin Thompson, said he is not racist and called the matter an “internal affair.”

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.”

“I am not racist. I will tell you that. I am not prejudiced against any race of people, have never in my lifetime spoke evil about a race,” said Thompson, the church’s former pastor who stepped down earlier this year. “That’s what this is being portrayed as, but it is not.”

If it is indeed an “internal afffair”, I’m sure it has more to do with matters of his heart as well as other congregates of the Gulnare Free Will Baptist Church whom also feel that way. And if racism isn’t a factor, then what is it? I hope he doesn’t say that he prayed about it and the Lord gave him a vision to separate the ‘sheeps’ from the ‘goats’. I’m wondering what the ‘so-called Christians of this congregation would do when they get to the “pearly gates” and God says, “I condone members of your congregation calling themselves my children. So go to hell.”
