Well, it should come as no surprise to anyone that racism is not dead. It would seem, though, that we as a society have progressed to a point where it's no longer okay to express racist sentiment publicly (so long as you're white).
Apparently, some idiots at the Free Will Baptist Church in Pike County, KY, didn't get the memo that it's not a good thing to be racist. About a week ago, the church voted to ban interracial couples from getting married at that church, and they banned them from even attending regular services.
Before the religious freedom crowd jumps in, these asshats didn't even make an attempt to put a religious spin on this. This decision was purely out of a sense that black people and white people should not be married. There is no religious explanation: this is racism pure and simple.
So congratulations ass clowns. In one stroke you've managed to not only make yourselves look like awful, hateful, shit head people, but you've also taken a shit on the god you believe to have created all of us in his image, and who loves all of his creation equally and unconditionally.
Christian goodness only goes so far, I guess. At least the pastor finally decided to void the rule, but how would that have turned out without the media backlash?
