Church ban on interracial couples revoked!
Sometimes, a public outcry does reverse things. And this time, I am very pleased to report that it has worked to reverse the ban on interracial couples imposed on members of the Gulnare Free Will Baptist Church, Eastern Kentucky. And just as promised, the new Pastor Stacy Stepp looked into the issue and declared the resolution to ban interracial couples from the congregation, null and void because it ran contrary to local, state or national laws.
The discriminatory resolution has been thrown out the window and a new resolution has been passed... which allows "believers into our fellowship regardless of race, creed or color", Stepp told The Associated Press. Now, couples like Stella Harville and her fiancé Ticha Chikuni from Africa (the interracial couple the ban was imposed on) can now worship with the rest of the congregation in peace.
The new resolution is geared towards promoting "peace, love and harmony." My colleague James can now rest easy. No more "BLACK EYE" to this church!
