Church refuses to marry black couple (LIP)

So, I came across this article while reading the news online. A white pastor in Mississippi refuses to marry a black couple in his church bcuz the congregation had a problem with it & he didn't want to risk his job. Honestly, I got heated over this. It's 2012, when is all this racist bs gonna end?? smh

  • Chile please! I read an article a few years ago where a Louisiana Justice of the Peace refused to marry interracial couples because it was "against his principles" to marry "mixed couples"  .  I didn't read the article but yeah it's still alive in 2012.  What the f*ck ever! I say just go to another church and not deal with this foolishness.  It only works if you buy into it.

    Sad...does not surprise me though. It won't end unfortunately. If it's not the color of your skin then it's going to be something else that you will be hated for. SMH
